Sporty Edit

The whole idea of defining my personal style leaves me baffled because if you guys have judged, I don't really have any signature style!
I am one of those fashion enthusiasts who prefer styling a look on the basis of comfort, occasion & how effortlessly I can carry it. 

Coming to today's post, the whole idea behind creating this look was not just the humid humidd weather but also because I have never sported something on these lines. 

I have been looking for a t-shirt dress since quite sometime now, struck by the 'sports luxe' arrow you see, but instead of going for the styles available in the market, I decided to pick a basic tee (in XL size) from the men's section. 
And this made realize that we have been wearing a t-shirt dress all our lives, either stolen from boyfriend or brother’s closet. I decided to dress it down & added a pair of espadrilles with leather patch detailing & a baseball cap! Finally oversized glasses & a pop of bright pink on the lips, for a sporty meets glam vibe.

Throwback Time

Cutwork embroidery has been quite popular this season, & was seen in almost everything be it dresses, shoes or bags! This elegant & intricate vintage technique not just lends a see through look, but is a beautiful amalgamation of delicate meets modernity.

Calling this post 'throwback time' because each detail used to style this outfit is a trend from the past, and yet combining them together gives a contemporary vibe to the overall look. Since the shorts had this intricately detailed cut-out embroidery at the hems, I decided to pair it with a pristine white structured shirt & inverted its collar inside to make it look like a mandarin collar, for an unconventional vibe! While the shirt was chosen to balance the outfit, the high-waisted shorts perfectly accentuated the waist. 

While in some outfits, accessories either play a major role in building the look or go unnoticed, but for this attire each accessory was picked as a missing part of this outfit puzzle. I layered this dainty beaded necklace, which added a pop of color to the outfit.

I remember when I was a kid, my mom used to have a similar looking clutch & how I was completely awestruck by its intricate detailing and work, but with all these years it somehow got misplaced.
But when recently a fellow blogger, who also runs an amazing online store, showed a picture of this clutch I knew I want it back in my life. This clutch in velvet with gorgeous Dabka & bead work all over it perfectly complimented the outfit & added that vintage fusion vibe to it.
