Jasleen: I was in this half party, half laidback mood and decided to take cues from my husband's wardrobe. I think it's really sexy when women wear androgynous elements and since that is in fashion anyway, isn’t it. This is my take on the yin-yang look with an oversized t-shirt and military-ish boots. The bag is a recent gift from my mum-in-law, a vintage piece she had in her closet from long ago. It has its own lock combination and I am totally digging the briefcase style. It also has a long handle which I still have to grab from her wardrobe. The shoes were also a gift from my cousin Julie in London who has two closets-full of shoes from Jimmy Choo, Gucci and what-not. This is something she gifted me a long long time ago and I don't know why I never wore these. I'm loving them now!
- Don't do a pretty dress and heels, it's too dull and boring
- Jazz up your dress with a jacket, a button down shirt, a sequined blazer or a tee
- Instead of doing stiletto heels for a party, try wedges, flats, Oxfords etc. to add a splash of fun with contemporary options like this.
- Wear your dresses as blouses with short or long pleated skirts, you can use them in multiple ways.
- Jasleen has worn this dress like a tunic here and as a blouse here.
- Don't shy away from mixing odd colours with black. Try beiges, creams, khakis for a twist.
- The traditional colour palettes are red and black but try and keep away from that and pick a burnt orange or coral or nude pink.
- Break the monotony of black by adding a contrasting belt or bag or shoes.
- Sonu has worn these Jodhpuris here and here. She has also worn this bag many times like remember this time and this one too.
