I feel #blessed coming from such a diverse & rich culture & even more lucky to be able to mix my western & Indian clothes. My all time obsession is cotton Kurta’s, I literally pair them with denims, shorts, palazzo pants (current obsession) & better yet thigh high boots. Having such diversity in my wardrobe allows me to experiment with my everyday look & put together pieces which I would previously shy away from.
If you told me two years ago to rock a bindi, jhumkis & a kurta to work, I’d laugh & say “hell to the no boo”!
Ask me the same question today & I’m all like “HELL TO THE YEAH” with remnants of Amla oil in my hair. Today I can say with a certain conviction I’m more comfortable in rocking a kurta with boots or even juttis with jeans.
Check out the hashtag #decoloniseyourwardrobe for more inspiration from some bad ass people!
Note: Still going bra-free.
Boots: Public Desire
Kurta: A market in Goa
I wouldn’t really call myself a rebel in my everyday life but when it comes down to my office style I’m a self proclaimed revolutionist!
Okay that is a little dramatic but, if you ever catch me in the break room, I can assure you I won’t be unvaried.
I’m not the girl to have a “work” & “weekend” wardrobe, but rather believe recycling items in your wardrobe, especially key pieces to create different looks.
In the next coming weeks, you’ll see the Thigh High Series unfold & see how I pair these bad ass boots with three different outfits.
And to answer the question, Yes you can…
Shirt: Olio Stories
Boots: Public Desire
The pelvage trend was once a craze, forwarded by influencers & models who don’t stand at a comfy 5″3 & also have no qualms in accidental flashing.
Thigh-high splits & a touch of quirk.
Keep it simple & be confident.
And, when it comes to the old age trend of “dressing for your body type,”
I give zero fucks.
Dress: General Pants & Co.
Scarf (worn on the ankle): Bardot

1. Mens clothes modified for womenswear
2. Just clothes
Boyfriend jeans. Boyfriend blazers. Boyfriend shirts.
Women are swapping out pocketless, slim-fit blazers for boxy & fluid clothing. Instead of focusing on wearing man inspired silhouettes, women are directly buying from the mens department.
There’s a movement now where clothes are not segregated by gender but are differentiated by colour, shape & patterns. Its a long road till gender fluid clothes are introduced, but style is universal right?
In my humble opinion, menswear has seen a creative outburst, with more Hommes experimenting with colours, printed shirts & an outrageous sense of street style.
So dames, ditch those “boyfriend” jeans & those who ask:
But, are you wearing mens clothes?
Kurta: Suket Dhir
Pants: Country Road

2. a white t shirt
Cotton, polyester or modal, a white tee is the bread & butter of my wardrobe. With the rise of fast fashion, trends are changing before you can say “is the bum bag making a come back?” ( It is )
However, you’ll find the classic white tee a constant in our wardrobes. The best part is trying to find pairings to re-invent the white tee but what’s even better is being able to mix Indian wear with wardrobe staples.
So baby get those lehengas & sneakers out.
It’s time to change it up.

No, it’s called Athleisure.

I am in a forever love affair with dresses & shorts. The crux of the matter is that the weather is changing & most sensible folks will swap out those cheeky bum shorts with jeans, over-sized hoodies & better decisions.
I, not being so much on the sensible side, discovered a simple formula to transition summer stapes to winter wear, without having to answer:
But Baby isn’t it too cold?

If you look closely on my last two posts you must have noticed, I am not wearing a bra. No problem right?
I’ve been genetically blessed with small boobs & from a young age it has been ingrained to religiously wear a bra. A quick trip to buy milk requires my wallet, keys, will power not buy ice cream & support.
However, going sans bra has been liberating. I feel comfortable, confident, sexy & say a “hell to the yeah” to some cheeky side boob. Be it a ten minute drive to pick up pizza or a dinner I’m embracing bra-free fashion.
We are definitely more than being shamed or sexualised for our bodies.

The Little Black Dress 2.0:
- Unapologetically you.
If history has taught us anything it is that the two piece trend is a wardrobe must have. Flashback to Fran Fine rocking a floral Jennifer Bawden outfit paired with her killer abs! I may not have the abs but I do love a cheeky two piece. Being on the shorter side, I did find it hard to find a skirt + crop combo that didn’t reach my ankles. This Ref piece was a steal, plus sustainable to the environment.
