Today, when I woke up in the morning the day
planner started barking at me my entire schedule. Yet I managed a quick jogging
session at 6 and by the time I completed my chores I knew I was late for work.
Then I started the big battle with the giant and unkempt wardrobe of mine. What
I pulled out were black trousers and a dark color blouse which definitely didn’t
complement each other. And to add to the fashion disaster I did not put on a
single hint of makeup and a funny hairdo which I didn’t care about.
As I rushed to my office things turned out to be worse my boss greeted me with
scorn, I knew I was late. Meetings sounded dull with no major contribution from
my side. Presentations seem to be never ending. It was a monotonous day .I knew
this could not go on for a long time, so I decided to bring some change. Next
morning I did get late again, but I wore a lovely yellow patiala & duppatta and
black kurti with a pair of jutti .Accessorized a little and let my
eyes be attractive with a hint of kajal
and glossy lips. I reached office and my boss smiled, I was stunned. Later that
day I spoke in every single meeting with confidence. The presentations seem to
become more attention-grabbing in the company of my input. People started to
observe and comment my work. That reminded me of a Bollywood quote “kapde badal jaane se insaan badal jata
hai”. Funny as it sounds but it was true. I was more confident,
more jovial and more attentive of myself and my thoughts.
We women are running around in our life like
crazy dancers, trying to perform bharatnatyam and hip hop at the same time on
the same music. In the entire frenzy styling gets compromised. But I feel
without a fashion presentation there is no room for a power point
presentation. I believe it’s
a vital choice what a woman wears during those hours of 9 to 6.
In India, ethnic wear has seen a tremendous
transition. It has caused a trend among working and professional women. This transition from the traditional ethnic
wear to modern ethnic touch has seen a great enthusiasm in Indian work
culture. More and more women are
preferring kurtis coupled with
leggings or patialas and duppattas. Many women, especially
in higher posts, have appreciated the
traditional sarees. Anarkali suits with multicolored
patterns have also taken a toll on the fashion world. Pairing up the ethnic
wear with right set of accessories is very graceful. Right from jhumkas to tops to rings are available
in vibrant colors shapes and sizes. Traditional wear gives variety of occasions
of color contrasts and mix & match.
There are amazing collections of kurtis that complement leggings, churidars and at the same time denims.
This season red, blue, yellow, peach and multicolored kurtis have been in high visibility. Long skirts are the best catch
of the season. Specially, women in creative jobs can flaunt their long skirts
with short kurtis or tops. Long
skirts look very delicate and extremely elegant. Traditional occasions and
parties in offices will now not only see women in sarees but also in long
It’s imperative to add flavor in food, in
the same way it is important to add colors and variety in your style quotient.
Girls let’s juggle our wardrobes, make room for the trending ethnic
wears and surprise our colleagues with our fashion statement. Somebody has
