Prerna Sinha or Maa Of All Blogs on her love for Indo-ethnic chic

everyday style, fashion

A style that you are comfortable in, is what I think is fashionable for you or your age. At forty, it’s time to move beyond just adapting the current trends blindly but smartly pick up elements that you can carry and then merge it with your own style. See what suits your body shape and profession and then carry it with elan. Maybe it’s time to even discover and have your own style because that will never fade. For me it’s Indo ethnics. I just love carrying it off. I usually pair it with one statement jewellery, be it a Jhumka or a statement necklace. Here I am wearing a long maroon dress with pockets( pockets are very important for me). I like the fact that it’s stylish and still very comfortable.

I have this terrible weak spot for wrap dresses. They are comfortable, forgiving and hide a multitude of sins. God bless Diane Von Furstenberg for having elevated them to cult status with her pioneering wrap dress brought into the high fashion scene way back in 1974. While I don’t have a DVF wrap dress yet (someday, someday, is the Universe listening in, with ear wax cleaned out? ), I do have a couple of others that I keep going back to over and over.

A different kind of wrap dress, this chocolate and rust version from Label by Ritu Kumar was perhaps one of the most comfortable dresses I’ve ever worn. I teamed it with a grey camisole, for modesty, because, erm, well. My shoes are a pair of trusted old really ugly but very comfortable chocolate block heels which I wore over and over till they finally collapsed on me mid event, I forget which brand though. Teamed this with a simple silver ethnic choker and red lips. Works?

And yes, I was chatting with the gorgeous Tisca Chopra at this BackToTheFront Career Konneckt event a couple of years ago. Isn’t she absolutely lovely?
