What I wore at Lakme Fashion Week

Fashion Weeks give you an excuse to go on a major OOTDing spree… I didn’t spare any reason to not do the same, I wouldn’t say I dress loud to call for attention , I like it subtle with a simple statement…..My style is being myself…..always…!!!!

At the  Lakme Fashion Week (Summer Resort 17) , this season was my ode to  Indian textiles and garments . I don’t  really plan as to what I will wear at the Fashion Week, I like to mix and match and wear whatever I am feeling like at the moment that particular day. Then there are some collaborations with designers  who are showcasing. Me being me , I  bring in my styling twist to every garment I wear….. I guess I just love being my own style coach as well….. hahahhahahaaa……so going back to my Outfit Of the Days……

OOTD Day 1 : This definitely was one such day when I just opened my cupboard and stood and picked three random pieces and put together the look. My favourite anti-fit Pants that just fit perfectly ….yeah they do….hahahhaha , hand embroidered bustier and a cotton bomber jacket and I was good to go.  It is advisable to wear comfortable shoes to get you through entire day of walking around  and I chose my very comfortable Printed brogues…..


OOTD Day 2 : I played a Muse to one of my favourite saree designers Shailesh Singhania.Front row seat called for a fun styling right. I Decided to give his beautiful Benarsee my own twist, cannot help it you see….. 😉 . My distressed Denims and peasant top became the Petticoat and the Blouse, I draped the gorgeous saree on my jeans….. Just loved his collection on the Runway and cheered on during his his show at the Runway that day. Shoes were again my trusted Rose printed brogues (who says you shouldn’t repeat……) nicely complimenting the Rose weave in the saree…..I finished my look with my round framed sunnies  and a statement neckpiece…..

OOTD Day 3: This day I had 2 outfit changes, cheering for 2 designers. First outfit was a linen dress designed by a dear friend and an upcoming designer Nishank Sainani , I loved how simple the dress was  and a perfect day time wear for a hot day, I styled it with a white shirt and a statement neckpiece. I  added a pop of colour on my lips to compliment the grey . Shoes were my patent leather Monks, again super comfortable to get me through the day….


Outfit 2: The second change was this flow(y )linen outfit that could also be worn inside out, by super talented designer Sanchita Jhulka. I have been following her work and her construction of garments is something else. She is a magician when it comes to making garments that can be worn inside out, back to front….. work of art . My twist was to keep my white shirt and statement neck piece on….How did you like how I styled it…!!

OOTD Day 4: Fashion week for me  wouldn’t have been complete without a Ka-Sha outfit,….. right….!!!!! I chose a saree from her collection fresh off the Runway, you have to see the saree to understand what a piece of gorgeousness it was. The frills added to the drama and I had random strangers walking upto me to tell me how beautiful it was. I wore it with a tasselled top from Ka-sha’s new collection and styled the saree unlike a saree , see how I draped the Pallu here. I teamed the saree with my tan  ankle length boots to give an the edgy twist. What do you think….


OOTD Day 5: Last season I was muse for the young and spunky Paridhi Jaipuria, needless to say that I fell in love with her less is more design sensibilities.She was showing on the Runway on Day 5 and I was there cheering her on, wearing a very summery shirt dress in silk linen and an interesting flowy element and blue bead detailing designed by her . As Pristine and weather appropriate it was , I styled it with my denims to give it my twist and for fun my blue reflectors and pair of Nude wedges……. how did you like it….



Let me know how you liked the looks I sported  on all five days and which one is your favourite in the comments below and stay tuned to a whole lot more stories from the Lakme fashion week……..CIAO…..
