Formal & Quirky Workwear


peach printed top black blazer semi formal outfit

I work full-time with an online lifestyle media portal in Pune…Lucky for me my job comes with the advantage of being able to wear anything I fancy. This advantage though comes with its own set of pros and cons. Sometimes I feel like choosing between a variety of kurtas would be easier and also really hassle-free. Why? Cuz I’m a confused soul. Giving me too many options to choose from is a big no no.

Coming to this look...On most days I prefer stepping out in jeggings and a top. We’re mostly travelling around the city or shooting at particular locations and this is the most convenient option. When I’ve got coffee or dinner plans post work, I usually play around with my footwear and basic makeup. This time though I had a meeting post work...I was aiming for something between a formal and a fun look…The formal bit obviously meant working around my oh-so-well-fitted blazer. Considering I rarely ever get a chance to wear the blazer anymore, I wasn’t willing to work without that. The next question was how to add some fun and quirk. I just did not want to pair it with a bright plain cami. This flamingo print top was something I impulsively picked up simply for the love of flamingoes. Apart from the colour and the print, everything about the top was something I personally am not a big fan of. It was sleeveless, had a really low and loose neckline and it’s a high low top with the low part being really long (hits the back of my knees!).

I tucked the top into the jeggings from behind and was really happy with how it then looked paired with the blazer. I’m wearing a black tube on the inside to avoid any neckline peek-a-boos. No, that’s not too many layers of clothing and I wasn’t melting (the fabric of the top is quite thin). I’ve realised that wearing a cami or a tube on the inside works better for me. It gives a more defined look especially when the fabric of the outer clothing is too thin.

I completed my look with a Lavie handbag (L.O.V.E the colour), strappy gold sandals, a statement ring, a gold and pearls bracelet, a layered chain and my new sunnies from Colaba. I always steered clear of round frames given the fact that I’ve got a round face. But having tried these on I fell in love and did not think twice about buying ‘em. #ScrewTheRules #WhateverWorks
