If you’ve been reading my blog, chances are you’re wondering why I seem to be obsessed with “craft” and “creativity” in daily dressing.
And honestly, I don’t blame you. Apart from attaching a couple of links to some great labels and designers, I haven’t really shown you any real examples of women who dress well. Who put some thought into what they wear. And yet emerge looking effortless.
While “thoughtful-effortless fashion” may seem a tad oxymoronish, there’s a very strong difference between effort-fashion and thoughtful-fashion. The judge being the end result.
You could be wearing jeans and a tee and it could seem as though you put in a lot of effort and someone else could be dressed in a dress and tons of jewellery and still look effortless.
It all has to do with how you pull off what you’re wearing. If you pull it off, like its your second skin, you will look effortless.
One of my favourites quotes is “It’s not what you wear, but how you wear it.”
I wrote it on one of those days in 2014 when the amount of effort people were putting in their fashion (and still failing) was getting to me. (yeah, yeah, I get dramatic sometimes.)
Enough of the jargon, let’s see how Naina effortlessly pulls off this beautiful look.
What I love about her is that she has combined contrasting elements and made it work so well. She’s borrowed a belt from a kurta and matched it to these lovely handcrafted beads and sandals. Her face is scrubbed clean, her hair tied back, and her bubbly personality – all the makeup she needs.
And the result is this well put-together outfit that’s effortless, breezy and oh-so-summery.
Girls, I am going to give you more examples of creativity in daily dressing, soon. Till then, get inspired from this lovely lady.
