Janaki Nagaraj speaks about the comfort in shifting to trousers

everyday style, fashion
For the most part of my adulthood I wore churidar/salwar kameez. I grew up in a modest middle class South Indian family where affordability and comfort decided our fashion.
But now I am most comfortable in denims or trousers on most of the days. I am not a “brand” person. It’s the confidence with which you carry off an outfit that really makes you look good.
And being a fitness enthusiast, gym wear is what you find the most in my wardrobe. I am yet not comfortable in working out with just a pair of tights and a sports bra, but I do hope to one day. It is super liberating.

Pattern and denim- a classic combo

A quick smart go to day look. A satin blouse with an intense print–here I have houndstooth and polka dots, in black and white. Black pump sling backs. Deep indigo skinny fit. Small sized sunglasses. Good to go for lunch or just a day of work meetings, you could substitute the denim with fitted black ankle cropped trousers if you want to get a wee bit more formal.

Getting reptilian

everyday style

I have a particular soft spot for animal print, and reptilian print. I think they are that one element that can jazz up a look with minimal effort. This is one of my favourite no-fuss tops–I’ve had it forever and forever, in a satin fabric, cut comfortably with dolman three fourth length sleeves and a snake print in taupe, black and beige. I pair it with a pair of fitted brown or black trousers, and occasionally add a neckpiece if I feel I need more fuss. But the neckpiece is completely optional given the print is busy enough to not merit anything additional. And yes, a bright red lip to spark it up. But then, the bright red lip is my suraksha kavach, seem to wear it with everything, whenever I feel I’m looking like something the cat regurgitated on the carpet.

What about you, do you have any snakeskin in your wardrobe?
