November 2016 can be best described as the month of flux. From the temperature to the economy to our wardrobes; ‘change’ has struck all the layers of our lives!
I spent about two weeks in Bangalore early this month and returned to Kolkata following that.
Here’s a quick round up of my #OOTDs for November till now:
Colour Blocking Syndrome:
Ideally, I wouldn’t call myself a big fan of colour-blocking, but this look speaks otherwise.
Tried a rust coloured mandarin shirt, with a pleated yellow skirt and a lemon green belt.
Accessories were kept to a watch, a blue sling and silver slip-ons.
Break up of the Look:
Variation: You can replace the knee-length skirt with an ankle-length one to keep yourself shielded form the winter winds.
2. Hello Friday Night
Black absolutely has to make its way to everyone’s wardrobe as the temperature drops and who am I to reject the order of nature.
Added a bit of ‘Me’ element by throwing on a flowy white vest and ankle-high boots and also made it a point to stay away form red wine drinkers. 😛
A pair of golden earrings and a thin black and brown belt finished the look for me.
Break Up of the Look:
Variation/ Tip: The Dress can also be replaced with a full length/three quarter jumpsuit for an edge.
3. Feeling Flea:
I think I was just born to attend flea markets. The vibe, the music, the fusion of art and fashion just makes the events so exciting.
Had the chance of attending Kitsch Mandi while I was in Bangalore and here’s what I wore.
An olive Box pleated Mini skirt teamed with combat boots, a psychedelic print shirt, very basic earrings and my favourite bag and watch.Printed Shirt: Westside; Olive Skirt: Forever 21 ; Combat Boots: Call It Spring; Earrings: Paulami; Bag: Moschino; Watch: Kenneth Cole; Shades: Forever 21
Variation/ Tip: The boots can also be teamed with leg warmers for a more cosy look!
4. The Denim Zone:
A Denim jacket has the power to transform about anything and everything!
The temperature dropped by a couple of degrees and I felt the need to layer my floral dress with a jacket. Ankle boots too came to my rescue.
Break Up of the Look:
Variation/ Tip: You can toy around with prints like graphics or even stripes if florals aren’t your cup of tea.
5. Flaunt your Flare:
I returned to Kolkata and attended Streets of India: One of the Biggest Food and fashion festivals in the city.
Opted for this anti-fit, flared dress teamed with a pair of black slip-ons, jhumkas and a floral patch worked beanie.A kantha stitch bag kept the look more Indie.
Variation/ Tip: You can even team the dress with a pair of palazzos to add more depth to the look.
6. Bring out the Bomb(er)s:
Kolkata has been rather nice on us this season and light bombers are definitely a big YES.
Teamed one of these casual dresses with a cotton bomber, roman sandals and a pearl hairband.
Variation/ Tip: You can also opt for a midi to maxi dress to beat the chill!
Would love to know which one’s your favourite and will be back with the next edition of November OOTDs super soon.
Till then enjoy the weather!
