Siri, pick my OOTD, please!
*comes back to reality*
This needs to be a thing, like every day! If only Siri helped me pick my what-to-wear-today, life would be so sorted. *sigh* Although, it may seem a little early, there's no better time than now to freshen up your Autumn-Winter 'drobe and sort your everyday fashion woes, sans Siri!
So what sort of items should I be nabbing for my AW wardrobe?
1. Layer, layer like a player...
This season's most arresting trend might be the most obvious and the most essential one. 'Layering' as a trend has become the fashion world's new-kid-on-the-block. Try easing into it by layering an overcoat over a hoodie, a sporty bomber or a denim jacket, or go one further by letting a turtleneck creep out from under a V-neck jumper or a jacket. You can also try layering on your own by mixing and matching items of your choice. The looks may be varied, but that autumn chill doesn't stand a chance.
2. Florals? For Winters? Groundbreaking!
In other news, Miranda Priestley has approved florals for Fall and I'm more than excited! Just like denim truckers aren't only for Summer, florals shouldn't be reserved for Spring-Summer either, right? Think: Harry Styles' floral power-suit... Err... Too OTT? The safest you can play with this season's prettiest botanicals is by colour blocking—try matching a floral shirt with your favourite denim and throw on a jacket of your choice. Psst! Wear a floral scarf to amp up a boring outfit. You can also cop a floral bomber if you too, just like me, would do anything for the love of fashion.
3. Look sharp AF in formal attire.
Formal attire that doesn't look like you're going for a 4 pm meeting? Yes, please! Here's the drill; rule #1 for formal dressing: Less is always more. A well-tailored blazer can do wonders to a minimalistic trouser-shirt combo and take your desk-to-drinks look a notch higher. Hello, dapper king!
4. Put on your jacket and nail the street-style look!
Ever since I've got the slightest understanding about styles and trends, I've been an ardent fan of athleisure. I mean, how can you not fall for a trend that lets you party in sweatshirts? For me, athleisure is synonymous with sporty and chic and it's becoming a wardrobe staple. If you too want to bring nothing less than your A-game to the streets, put those jackets and runners to good use!
5. Keep it casual!
Winter fashion can be hard to get right, although it's a lot relaxed than Summer fashion. I know you need to be a certain kind of a baller to pull off those flashy textures and over-bloomed florals; some fashion trends might not be for everyone. So if you’re looking to make a statement with your casual, street-style look this season, take a leaf out of Kartik Aaryan's look-book from Mufti and see how the guy is nailing almost every look like it's NBD!
Mufti recently unveiled its new Autumn Winter '18 Collection at its one-of-a-kind fashion show, which saw models strutting the ramp showcasing the spectacular range of ensembles that featured exceptional designs, innovation, high-quality fabrics and above all – comfort of being yourself. Trust me on this, casual fashion has never looked this good!
