If its a quick meeting up with friends for drinks and dinner, I’m the one who prefers to be in my good old jeans. Sometimes, I might just make the effort to pull out a lovely burnt orange embroidered sleeveless top by Namrata Joshipura, that falls straight to the hips, paired with these skinny fit denims, a simple similarly embroidered motif clutch and my good old favourite golden Kolhapuri chappals.
What’s your quick fix night out with friends go-to look?
When all else fails, a black camisole, black skinny fit jeans and a wonderful long line Ajrak jacket in rust. Stand alone jackets and blazers can save an entire outfit, wear them over jeans and camisoles with stilettoes or pumps for a completely put together look that doesn’t take more than five minutes to throw together.
Got this one tailored from Ajrak fabric my sis in law had picked up on her tour to Kutch. It is a single lapel, with wooden buttons and goes beautifully over black, beige and grey. And yes, have a good tailor handy.
What is winter worth its sliding mercury without one getting the chance of bringing out the boots? In Mumbai, wearing boots is honestly more of an act of bravery than self preservation against the elements given how hot and humid it is for most parts of the year, but a few days in December and January can have you bundle up a bit without people looking at you like you need to count your marbles for the few missing.
This is what I find most easy and comfy with these boots. Skinny fit light washed jeans from Only, a Cubus striped round neck full sleeved Tshirt, with my all time favourite grey suede jacket that I wear everywhere and with everything. And yes, a pair of nice small sunglasses that don’t overpower your face with this.
Winter in Mumbai might be non existent, but some days you just feel like play pretend it is chilly enough to bring out your woollies. For me, the go to look is always a chunky knit oversized pullover in cream worn over deep indigo skinny fits. Pair this with a taupe Da Milano structured bag, a leopard print scarf, huge sunglasses and tan suede boots, and I’m good to go.
