‘Less is more’

“Less is more” may be a cliché, but it’s a cliché for a reason. When sleek, simple minimalist style is done right, it can make more of an impact than even the loudest of outfits.

A project manager in the healthcare IT department and a part time Bollywood fitness instructor, my client ‘S’ is a versatile personality. Her style quotient is simple and clean. She does not enjoy wearing flashy or loud pieces and likes to keep it minimal. At our styling session , ‘S’ was looking to bring fresh fall outfits into her wardrobe which she could wear to work. Keeping her minimalist style in mind, i decided to experiment a little and introduce her to the world of prints and stripes.

Look 1 – Racing down on the either sides of formal or athleisure pants, athletic stripes are trending big this fall 2018. I put together a simple and classic outfit here. Red striped 3/4th sleeve basic top along with a semi casual athletic stripe pant from Zara. This simple, trendy yet sporty work-wear look is her favorite go-to outfit at work now.

Look 2 – ‘S’ was not very familiar with prints so i decided to bring that in, with this bright fall-colored printed floral shirt. Paired it up with a classic black trouser and tan boots. This simple, lapel collared printed shirt stands out by itself and blends in perfectly with her persona and style.





Look 3 – This was one of Zara’s unique stand-out prints. Who knew, two hooks interlocked with each other could look this chic and classy. The Flowy round neck silhouette and the padded shoulder yoke & cuffs add freshness to the outfit. And not to miss out the pleasing pastel blue shade clubbed together with a navy trouser and a pair of loafers. Simply effortless! 








Rain Diary

The rainy season is almost back again here in Seattle. And nothing better than owning a chic and classy raincoat. I found this perfect lightweight one from @zara and its just as amazing as it looks.  It’s super light,soft and the polyester has a shine to it which I totally fell in love with!

The best detail is, that the hood is concealed into the collar with a zipper! How cool is that!
