Florals for the generally flower averse

Summer is upon us, and floral prints are making a comeback– well as much of a comeback as something that had never really gone away can. They’re back on every type of clothing – in print and 3D (embroidered onto things), and even in unexpected places like bomber jackets and on handbags. I’m not the…

#OOTD – the week that was on fleek

It’ been a month since awards season and a lull has set in on the fashion front. Emma Watson wrapped up her impeccable press tour for Beauty and the Beast, and it feels like everyone has decided to stay home and take a much needed rest after all the excitement. Sure, there were a few…

Hearing wedding bells?

Wedding season is in full swing in this part of the universe, complete with the elaborate flower walls a la Kimye, and fancy finger food. Elsewhere in the world, bridal fashion week finished with many of our favourite designers presenting dreamy creations for every kind of bride-to-be. I’m still waiting for Indian Bridal Week to…

Adulting in a pencil skirt

The pencil skirt has been a wardrobe staple since forever – I’ve personally been a fan since about age 13, when I was also hooked onto Ally McBeal.

The t-shirt dress, not just for supermodels

It wasn’t love at first sight, or for that matter, second. It took a fair bit of cajoling before I agreed to try it on. But it was love at first try! I’d always thought T shirt dresses were for the likes of super modelesque PYTs with endless Kendall Jenner-like legs and non-existent waists. Certainly they were…

For love of the shirt dress

  Summer is just around the corner, which means two things – soaring temps that will peak at the mid 40s for those of us who live in this corner of the world, and a summer wardrobe that will help you cope with said temps. One of my favourite things to wear during this most…
