Jumpsuit story


Jumpsuit: H&M, Blazer: Forever21, Ballerinas: Singapore, Watch: GC

It’s a Sunday, and this one won’t be in bed. I am in a bit of a rush because I have to leave for a lunch get-together at a friend’s place. It’s a bit of a formal occasion, and I am considering wearing a jumpsuit which made me realise that I should write this post right away because it has been long overdue.

Jumpsuits make a great option for when you are attending formal occasions and look as polished and as beautiful as a dress, I bought a few versions of it, from long and sleek ones to the flared and cropped ones because they are a sure shot and an easy route to chic.

This one is backless, which makes it perfect for the daytime as well as the evenings. I paired it up with a minimalistic black blazer and added a bit of bling with the ballerinas; You could also add a belt to give a dimension to it.

Like Dresses, Jumpsuits come in many styles, so a part of pulling off this look is about finding the correct style for yourself. This is a casual one; I also feel that the ones that are a little fitted on the waist are more flattering.
I might just do another post on jumpsuits soon because I love them a little too much.

Have a superb Sunday, girls!



Pleats me, Please.

Pleated skirts take me back to the iconic image of Marilyn Monroe and her lovely white pleated dress fluttering in the upward breeze on top of a subway vent in New York in The seven-year itch.

Although pleats have been around since ancient Egypt, they have recently made a comeback making the pleated midi skirt a huge trend this season. If you too want to make your skirt sartorially present-day, all you got to do is simply add pleats!

There was a time when I thought that pleated skirts are only for school girls. Just realised how wrong I was.
There are so many ways to wear it, If you want to be office-appropriate, you could wear it with a crisp white shirt and thin-strapped heels or with sneakers and a t-shirt if you are going out for coffee with a friend. You can also add a dose of glamour by pairing it up with a beautiful lace bralette and a choker necklace.

The one that I am wearing is less flowy because I wanted something formal but I am soon investing in a pleated maxi metallic skirt which also looks super gorgeous.

Have a splendid week ahead!
