It’s my endeavour here to bring out the S/S 2019 runway trends interpretation to you from all the high street brands that are accessible to us. Continuing with this effort, utilitarian jumpsuits were one of the biggest trends seen. This piece from H&M totally seems to fit the bill. Also Beige is no longer considered to be boring. it might just be emerging as the power color of 2019 so look out for it.
Jumpsuit : H&M
Earrings : H&M
Boots : Aldo
Spring does bring a lot of color with it. Think of beautiful flowers blooming at this time and then get inspired to work those colors in your outfit.
Also did I mention long skirts are having a moment this season. There are all kinds all around – flowy, billowy, pleated, straight cuts, printed , floral , monos all kinds
I picked up this beautiful pink satin one from Zara and monochromed the whole look with a men’s knitwear tee and my Christian louboutin heels.
I have to be honest and tell you that these shoes might look super cute but these SO KATE shoes from Christian Louboutin are killer heels. They will literally kill you with pain. They are the most uncomfortable pair of shoes on this planet and I am an OG when it comes to heels. But these are deadly so I wouldn’t recommend anyone to have these.
Just putting it out there
I was struggling to find some variety in these pics but guess what I haven’t budged an inch in this shoot cos I just couldn’t . it was so painful hahaha

Last but not the least Lesson 7
Not very hard to guess right!! Ofcourse an LBD is a very very essential part of your workwear. Depending completely on your comfort level, alter the length of the dress. I would go with a longer one too. It looks absolutely fab and classy. Just opt for something structured and not extremely figure hugging or very short cos that would probably not look appropriate for the occasion. Add an element of elegance with a smart blazer and minimal jewellery. Its a no fail way to look rich.
This was the Last one in my 7 day workwear series. I really hope you liked the Tips / lessons cos this is truly what I would do to make my workwear from drab to fab. Little thought into the process can make you look extremely elegant and well put together. As you may have noticed, all the items are from high street brands and the looks are kept extremely simple. Jewellery is kept minimal and accessories like bags and sunglasses are used to complete the look.
If you guys like it Will try and do a follow up one with a little Indian flavour too. Do give me a feed back guys.

This one is for the more serious “professional types”. If you wanna be taken seriously, you better dress like one. This one is just a little twist to the regular blazer. A Double breasted blazer lends more seriousness. It strictly shows that you mean business. I feel it reflects more power and definitely projects that you mean business.
So IMO a few double breasted pieces in your closet can be reserved for those very serious meetings in which you wanna show that you are in control.
Also keep it mono. Black is the color of power but you can always switch it up with Red too.
PS: There is nothing soft about this look. So go Hard!!
Blazer : Zara
Trousers : Zara

Hey guys Hope you liking my workwear series because I am quite enjoying it
Ok Today I have a couple of tips in Lesson 4
- I always believe that neutrals can make you look the most classy but if you are a girl who wants to add some spunk and some spice I suggest get a pair of bright coloured trousers. Electric colours like Red, Blue , Yellow work really well but tone them down with neutrals for sophisticated work look
- Shirts well duh the most obvious choice of clothing to pair your trousers with but here I am giving it a little twist by pairing it with plain simple Tees.
- Get yourself a couple of plain well fitted simple (no slogans) tees in black, white , beige and wear them with your trousers
- Add any longline jacket ( I am wearing a very light weight trench here ) but you get the drift. It could be a long sleeveless jacket, a long shrug , a long coat would be ideal (if its still winters where you stay). Ensure that these pieces are not too loud and are in neutral colours.
- Wide leg trousers or flared trousers are all trend currently but they are also timeless pieces so invest in the best possible ones. Don’t mind shelling out a little more for these cos they can be on repeat in your wardrobe.
Another pro tip – keep the length of your trousers long enough to be grazing the floor that way it will make your legs look so long (especially for girls who are short like me)
Trench – Zara (old)
Trousers – Zara (currently available)
T Shirt – H&M
Bag – Charles and Keith
A jumpsuit is a very handy piece in your wardrobe. Invest in 2 – 3 formal pieces which are either in Black, Navy Blue , Beige or even Khaki. These will help you on days you are feeling lazy and do not want to put too much thought into your outfit. Pair them with slick booties and just a classy watch and voila you are ready for business.
In terms of accessories keep it chic and minimal. A cool pair of bag and Sunnies are a must.
Jumpsuit – H&M
Continuing with my gospel on Workwear styling
Knitwears are your best bet to look classy. Invest in good “expensive” looking knitwears and you can pair them with skirts or trousers. They always make the outfit look more sassy as compared to a shirt. It looks like you have put some thought to the outfit. Depending on the season. Ofcourse I am wearing a high neck cos it was winters when I shot this look but you can replace it with something lighter and boots can be replaced with open toes.
PS : Pair the look with some classic pair of sunnies
Also neutral colours and monochromes are a sure shot winner!!
Knitwear : H&M
Skirt : H&M
Boots : Zara
Sunnies : Celine
Just thought of doing a formal wear series on the blog. Some of the things I have learned and incorporated in my style. IMO these will make you look rich, expensive and chic without much of an effort.
Workwear does not need to be drab. we could always spice it up with some bright colours and some tailored pieces in our wardrobe. A bright shirt or a T-shirt or any piece of item can just uplift the mood.Ensure rest of the pieces are structured and tailored. I am combining a very bright coloured with extremely sophisticated and tailored pair of trousers. Also pointed heels with crops always the best idea
This is just a series on my interpretation of work wear. Lets see how it goes!!

Trousers : Express
