I am not a good photographer. At least not yet. Which is why, to illustrate my yarns of copy (yes, I love to write), I shall attach images borrowed from Indian blog wearabout. Beautifully shot by photographer Manou, wearabout curates images of street style from Indian and Bhutan.
And I’d like to share some of these photographs to help you guys get an idea as to what I mean when I say “dress creatively”.
Check it out.
- Opposites attract | When Check met Floral
What I love about her is how she has combined seemingly contrasting prints (checks and florals) and made it work so well together. Well, well, on first glance, most of us if asked if the two go together would undoubtedly exclaim, “Hell no!”.
Doesn’t hurt to experiment does it? Well, the results clearly show. The fitted vest balances the looseness of the anti-fit skirt/lungi.
Chai High Tip: Next time, think twice before you throw away that old wraparound.
2. Layer, layer on the wall
He has worn a shirt. And then another shirt. And then wrapped a jacket around his waist. Wait, are those pants knit? Love his flair. Especially because, not many men can pull it off.
3. Because, Orange is the new black.
Don’t shy away from wearing socks with pumps. See how it good it looks!
4. Comfy in a saree
A striped blouse and a printed saree? OMG! One would never think, right? You’d be like, “Hey ,wear a hot-pink blouse. It’ll look epic.”
Thank God, she didn’t take your advice.
5. Flower girl
Here’s how to wear the midi skirt. Go today and buy one.
Stern yet fun. Wine and purple and brown and white. Interesting colours. Interesting silhouettes. Interesting hair. Interesting expression.
Who said, dresses were just meant for “girly”girls?
7. Dark romance
Dark slinky fabrics, a burgundy lip and Mary Janes. It’s like the girl-next-door just found her dark side.
8. Local inspiration
No earrings. Just a chunky choker and a matching watch. Love the ethnic inspiration in this uptown look.
9. Sieves for style
Nothing like a bright smile and happy shoes to lift up an outfit. The sieves? Well, she’s pulling it off!
10. “My sun and moon”
Night-sky dress and a morning-light jacket. With a neckline that cuts through it all. “Small” women, when it comes to skimpy necklines, you’re blessed. So don’t take it for granted. 😉
