When I found this amazing textured fabric, I had about a hundred ideas running through my head. Different styles of dresses (using the fabric as a whole or in parts), palazzos, skirts, structured tops, you name it and I thought of it! But I wanted something I could wear as a whole and as separates, something that could fit most occasions.
Hence, I designed a peplum top and a pencil skirt set (I’ll upload a picture of the whole look together on my look- book).
The peplum top has a V-neck that matches the V shaped slits at the shoulders. What can I say? Harmony is important to me. I made sure that the flare started at the narrowest part of my waist so it would flow with my curves. A thumb-rule that I always abide by: perfect fittings!! Alter everything required. I swear, even half an inch makes a difference. I wanted this look to be formal, so I paired it with well fitted black trousers that have faux-leather detailing at the side. For the accessories, I added a gold choker I bought from Zara and ankle-strap heels from Lavie.
Due to the texture and wanting to keep it a set, I designed the skirt to be knee-length and fitted with a slit at the back. High waist skirts are the best to define a curvy waist. I tucked in an old bling top from my closet to add oomph. Any bling top would do, even a tank. Since the top was short-sleeved, I decided to add extra accessories on my hands (also, I’m always looking for a reason to up my arm-swag). On my right arm(to your left) is a slave bracelet purchased from Koovs and on my left arm is a cuff from a stall at Colaba Causeway, and ring from Vero Moda. I paired this outfit with ankle strapped blingy heels from Pavers England.
