This photoshoot is a part of the series that I’m doing to lend some inspiration on #whattowear this Winter season.
Last week, we were all about keeping it comfy and did a look inspired by long silhouttes with a Cocoon Sweater. This week, I’d thought I’d do something more functional, and decided to show you what I’d probably wear to work.
The Theme: Of course you want to be taken seriously at work (NO SHIT), you know what you’re doing but that really doesn’t mean you got to rock a boring suit. Print-on-print was something we all saw this summer and it’s just about switching to this season’s favourites.
The Trend: After houndstooth ripped its way through last year, dog tooth was seen on the runways. Not only do I find the dog tooth sophisticated but I feel they also add a bit of definition (or shall I say curves) to those of us who are on the, ummm, lighter side of the weighing scale.
How To: Coming to the blouse/shirt, a lot of times, I would have paired this skirt with a solid hue, but I guess the print on this shirt is quite refined (can’t really be seen from far away) and doesn’t stand out like a sore thumb since it’s the same colour palette.
You can add stockings to this outfit since it’s getting colder as the days go by. Team it up with a sharp blazer or a structured overcoat when you’re stepping out.
A close-up for you to take a look at the make-up
The Make-up: Here’s a close-up of my face to show you the make-up that I used. Overall, I’d suggest to keep it very clean and to-the-point with make-up. I used a medium coverage foundation with an eyeliner and a lipstick. When you’re short on time, you can use a CC cream with SPF and use a pressed powder. I am crazy about pinks and oranges but you should really wear a shade that you’re comfy with. (For product recommendations, please feel free to ping me).
Colour Scheme: I love black and white. In fact, these are the 2 colours you’d probably find most of my wardrobe to be full of, and I think these colours are classic and work for the workspace. So be it presentation, a boring meeting or just a regular Wednesday, you’re bound to make the most of it 🙂
End Note: OK So I got a little comfy during the shoot, and you should too, especially if you wear heels. I am crazy about ballerinas and find them to a be a go-to-accessory for when I want to be all-about-business.
Make-up and Hair: Manavi Siddhanti (feel free to ping me if you’d want to share/discuss something).
