I do consider myself a truly Global person. But once in a while, I don’t mind going back to my Indian roots. 

Indian summer: how to dress anarkali

The Anarkali is a long, full-skirted dress that you wear over Churidar i.e. legging like trousers. A matching long scarf is added to most ensembles.

I’ve accessorized it with simple jewelry like statment earrings, bangles and a cocktail ring because sometimes you should let the outfit speak for itself.

The beauty of this outfit is that it has a touch of an ethnic appeal yet looks quite modern. A win-win situation at least for me. 

Dress: Mum’s gift, Pouch bag: MIL’s gift, Shoes: Marks and Spence (old, flat option here), Statement earrings: Debenhams, Bangles: H&M. 

Happy Wednesday. Hope you enjoyed this post on Indian fashion. Thanks for reading and do show me your love with your likes and comments or better still go ahead and make my day by following me. I follow back 🙂

Off-duty ensembles should be part-comfy, part-sassy, part fun-part classy, cool enough to be hot.

I like to keep it simple with neutrals but sass it up with bold colours and accessories. Best of both worlds, would you say?

Weekends mean an extra dose of well-deserved laziness. Sleeping till the late hours, gorging on some warm brunch and sauntering around the park. My attire too takes on a “relaxed” approach during weekends because let’s face it–we all deserve a break 🙂

It is all about embracing your casual side and letting (for once) comfort take the lead. Here, I’ve combined a playful polka dot blouse with a classic blue jeans. A comfy pair of shoes will take you through the park to the mall and all the way to coffee with friends in an understated style
