A True Story is continuing in our subsequent phase, just like the different phases a Bride has to go through during her marriage. Yes, I am talking about the various rituals and functions an Indian wedding is made of. As we know all weddings are fully carved with enthusiasm, celebrations, love and blessings, Indian weddings to get a little tricky as they are also imprinted with lots and lots of accessories, chic & swish outfits and the BIG J of jewellery!

So the crucial question is what to wear? Specially what jewellery to wear, it being the most expensive of the lot. Well, if you haven’t decided yet, you need not to worry as we are taking you through a Bride To Be’s journey of jewels.

From so many elegant, classy, BIG and stylish options available from Narayan Jewellers, I have picked a Signature Gold & Pearl Textured Set to embrace my look here. This set is an integration of gold & pearls in a unique way. Grasp at the beauty of the textured gold in this set, which comes with jadau attachments with profound khakho pearls. This beauty is inspired from geometry, where bold shapes meet floral details. Just like how we have the different aspects of the two souls woven in together.

It is paired with whopping gorgeous earrings, which can be worn as a statement piece independently with many other looks later also. From where I see, Narayan Jewellers have mastered the art of taking traditional techniques and using them unconventionally, which results into one-of-a-kind piece of jewellery.

A Black Pencil Skirt! One of the timeless possessions a woman can own.

Yes, if you want to instantly sculpt your waist, look slimmer, enhance those curves and look well groomed, stock up your staple with a coveted Pencil Skirt.

Over the years, we have seen many trends and then we have also seen timeless styles. But no matter what when and how, the later will always have my heart. A pencil skirt is a perfect piece every woman should own as a wardrobe essential for that touch of elegance, sophistication and glam. Pencil skirts can be worn day and night, from casual to formal, and even parties.

This age-old style or rather ‘timeless’ trend has been there forever and is worn effortlessly by women of all body types. It might have started as an office ‘must-have’, but this enduring sheath really hasn’t limited itself to 9 to 5. Don’t believe me? Watch as I put this basic apparel to test and style it out in 6 different ways- from work wear to quirky fashion events to casual day wear with my girlies and to date-nights and to late-nights. Trust me, you will be covered everyday of this week.

However, before I carve my looks, I would like to highlight a few key pointers for wearing it well and multiplying your wardrobe with a single PENCIL SKIRT.

♥ Boost your finest features: If your bottom part is a concern, sticking to a solid colour pencil skirt is your best bet, especially black. Color your top with bold patterns, texture, mixing it up to build that illusion of curves.

♥ Dare to wear: Be adventurous, be bold and style new permutations. Mixed colours, crop-tops and folded / knotted shirts. This is a great way to show a little skin with that high wasted cover. And a high wasted pencil skirt is always flattering as it creates an impression of long legs, making you sexier.

♥ Take it easy: The look and feel of your pencil skirt should be smooth and easy. Especially when standing up, as bumps will show it is too tight. In that case, up your size and make it worth the stare.

♥ Slim it down: Good fit is important. Solids are important. Length is important. Also, Colour blocking is awesome with a pencil skirt to express your attitude. However, make sure that the darker shade is applied on the areas of your body which you are looking to slim down.

♥ Wear it in the Day: Wearing a basic colour pencil skirt (solid) can help you in any setting, whether a casual day, everyday meetings and even those last minute happy hours. Make sure you tuck your blouse / top in to emphasise your waist and define your outfit.

You will be amazed to see how easy, basic and wearable this Black Pencil Skirt is in various styles.

♥ Look 1: This bow-tie and pencil skirt was perfect for my daily official meetings and is easy to carry from 9 to 5. It gives me the verve to be sleek and chic, even at work.

♥ Look 2: This look was styled to make my pastel colour pump shirt look sensual, yet crisp for that formal and informal kinda day. Yes, it suited all off them.

♥ Look 3: I wore this for my girl’s night out! Big, Bold, Beautiful and SEXY! I must say, it got me the right attention and woo. There was black and white and gold and red and statement; perfect ingredients for my night out.

♥ Look 4: I wore this day to night for a fashion event and an evening out with my girls, making it fun and flirty and quirky.

♥ Look 5: This was positioned for a casual day look. I wanted that effortless basic and chic look for my daily wear. However pumping some colour with favourite Quirk Box staple clutch, really made it appeal well.

♥ Look 6: A gold glittery glam night out is something I live for and crave for. This look helped me satiate my hunger for that perfect spicy club night. Party On!

In the end, it just doesn’t get better than this! Its effortlessly classy and elegant, its feminine, so modern yet timeless, its sexy and my favourite; so much that its intoxicating! So get the look and get classy! I mean, toxic!!!

Love thyself,
Sincerely, Su!

For the last few years now, working in a corporate firm in Manchester and in India (both), my only concern was ‘Mondays’ (actually even weekdays) – they are good & productive, but they are more consuming. Especially if you pay, even a lil attention to the hatred trolls and memes on Facebook and /or Insta about Monday mornings. But I would say, not all is lost if you get to take your style to work. Yay!

If our love for all things fashion has taught us a lesson, it is to hold your confidence high up and bone it like you own it.

How many of us really wake up and start our mornings singing songs of love and joy? And have an extra hour to try out various outfits? And finally pick out one impressive formal look together and wear it to your monday happiness? If this is your morning story, and this is you, then stop reading here.

Others (& me) 3 out of 5 times, we find ourselves running around trying to figure out ‘what to wear’, ‘what will look chic and yet be comfortable’, ‘how does my day look like’, ‘who will be wearing what’, ‘I have nothing to wear, ‘who will make my coffee’? Constant fight of thought’s while you are starring at those piles. Personally, one of the biggest challenge is to ‘dress smartly’ for a packed calendar.

BIG TIP: Organise your wardrobe and maintain it like that! You will always have more.

Now, one of my favourite approach is to pick attire that is versatile. Something, which can easily transition from glamorous at the office look to a late dinner & cocktail night. The 9am to 1am kinda look. These are those days where your hectic schedule does not allow you to change. A classy glamorous look is for all those sexy women around the sphere who rule the world, and would rather do it in style with sky rocketing high heels, bright seamless colours, painted lips and statement accessories that go day & night.

Well, as I always say, keep it simple; so for meetings, I am wearing my seamless pencil dress with neutral black toe lace pumps and delicate classy diamond and pearl accessories from Ted Baker. The tip is to infuse posh heels, rich fabrics, expensive perfume (a must, I am wearing Chanel No 5.), statement jewellery and a good bag.

After back to back meetings, I am was heading to my company’s private dinner & cocktail night at White Owl (lower parel, Mumbai). All I have done is folded my dress in a lil to make it look petite and crisp for a night out (who said you cannot curve your style skills;)) and changed my accessories to something more extravagant, to make a statement. I will add big statement earrings and rings for my fingers OR a showy necklace and small earrings to finish the look. It is imperative to stick to one big element for your look, not making it gaudy. I have also changed my heels to a solid colour, as I want to draw all the attention to my stunning jewellery. You can also style it with old metallic heels.

Now, Lipsticks last longer but gloss is more fun! So for nights like this, I pep up with a little gloss for the gleaming fresh look to match the spirit of the place that is so fine-looking and welcoming.

So, voilà, you are all set to go!!!

Love Thyself,

Sincerely, Su!

P.S. I am love with the freshly brewed artisanal beers at The White Owl. The place is young, relaxed and classy, yet easy. It is brightly lit and lively by day, warmer by dinner and progressively spirited as the night evolves! Sincerely, A Must Try!!!
