While denim is my standard go to look for every single thing–I think I’m going to write it into my funeral instructions that I go off to the electric crematorium in jeans, t-shirt and sneakers-I try to jazz it up a bit for times when I’m on display. This is a royal blue empire line top in chiffon with some diamante at the waist, of indeterminate origin bought off some store in Lokhandwala market, worn with a pearl and blue stone chain (which of course has gone awry given I can never keep all parts of self in coherent assemblage). The bag is a huge black Zara which fits in everything plus the kitchen sink, and some more. Sometimes I suspect if I fall into my handbag, I might just emerge into an alternate universe. Does that happen with you too?
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.
