Dressing Up for Fashion Week – What I wore for Lakme Fashion Week

Well yeah technically it is a late post , but who can time fashion because I am more of a classics girl. Also I hate to play by the rules when it comes to dressing-up for going  any where. I am more of a mood dresser, Believe you may not , but I never really plan my wardrobe for fashion week, never ever, I go with the flow and of course my mood that day as in what do I feel like wearing.

The perks of being a blogger also include changing at the Fashion Week if something Designer catches your fancy, yes and I am writing it out aloud that I love my job… actually is it even a job…. its my love for fashion that became my profession and needless to say I wake up everyday felling like  wanting to doing my job… I can’t thank the universe enough for culminating my fashion journey into this….

I am inspired to write the post for, I feel a lot of people who don’t go to Fashion Weeks so often feel overwhelmed with the idea of going. The number one question I get to hear from anyone I know and if they reach out to me when they are going to Fashion week is that what to wear….. My answer is always the same….whatever you feel like… because its fashion week…..

Fashion Weeks have such amazing vibes I feel , you could choose to be anyone there… you could be quirkiest or most basic, your fashion expressions are judged yet not judged. I love hanging out there and just observing people. You see all kinds, the ones who really try too hard to be cool and the ones who are really super cool…  I can’t even even describe the mood.

I would like to believe that I don’t try too hard and this post is all about that. I am sharing my outfit images from all through the week , what I wore , how I styled . I always keep it basic and about me , how I feel like , I don’t become a different person just because its Fashion Week. Trust me I even say the same sloppy jokes there…… hahahhaa…..!!!

Day 1

My friend and one of the most talented new designers Banjaaran was showcasing her Designs as she had been Chosen as one of the Grazia’s Best Upcomig Designers.  Mehandee is an amazing shoe designer who has now also launched her clothing label too, she had brought with her a Banjaaran dress for me  that I paired with my distressed jeans and my super comfy boots , with my Round sunglasses and voila I was fashion week ready. PS: I had written a Blog piece on how cool was the Banjaaran Label was, read here

BTW thats her with me and I am super happy and proud of her here and I completely loved the dress she gifted me.

Day 2: Sustainable Fashion Day

As I write this piece I have suddenly realised that I have super talented friends. Next on is the linen Saree by Nadiya Paar , Megha my lovely friend whose brand it is, designs these very earthy and sustainable linen Sarees that I am a big fan of, intact I did a blog piece on her Sarees and how to Drape them differently here… So in case you haven’t noticed the Bag, shoes and the sunnies remain same…. I told you I am not trying too hard kind of girl…..very basic…. because that was the mood I was in. Just threw in my favourite red lipstick and mismatched the saree with my custom made blouse….. and voila I was fashion week ready…..

Day 3

I wanted to cheer for one of my favourite silk saree designers at his show, Shailesh Singhania so I decided to wear one his sarees , I paired it with my stripped off shoulder top, silver jhumkis and tied my hair in a bun with a middle parting. Mind you the bag and shoes remained same….and I guess so did my red lipstick look from day before…

I had been under the weather all through the week, but it was fashion week and I wouldn’t miss it for a thing , at least till I could manage my energies and health to be working for me I was pulling through. It all took toll on me and I couldn’t attend the last day , was majorly sick for about 10 days after that.

I hope you enjoyed reading this and how I styled very simple street style looks. The whole Idea to write this blog was to inspire you all to experiment a bit without loosing the essence of who you are. Fashion week or no Fashion week….have fun dressing up and never ever try to fit in ………

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…..
