Mixing It Up

I'm trying to work the structured jacket in an all new style... this first of the series...

Also check out my post on the Vogue India website here

With jackets and trenches, padded shoulders and pointy lapels, velvets and suedes ... all in place to combat the chilly western winds; the eastern heart suffers the sudden withdrawal symptoms and languishes in the wait for the promised summers and blooming florals.

Seeing how ethnic embroideries and weaves are such a style statement, we tried to create a look that takes the edge off the structured winter wear.

Instead of pairing our perfectly tailored trenches with a rather over-worn pair of denims or trousers, we are pairing it with an outrageous skirt, a bright shawl and a colourful necklace. You must try wearing your Boyfriend jackets and trench coats with Shocking salwars, harem pants, embellished long skirts or even block print saris. Bring a rather desi twist to your winter wardrobe!

(Neetu Kasana is wearing : Necklace and Skirt from Mela Store, Shoes – Killah, Top – Janpath, Jacket – Tailored, Shawl – Mom’s, Shades – Raybans)

Psst... Have you found your perfect pair of lacy socks yet?? You know how cute they look with the booties, don’t you??

Much Love,
