Hello everyone! I have been travelling and have been very busy for the past month and it feels like I have been out of touch with what is happening in the world of fashion. I am telling myself there is no need to worry and getting my weapons ready again! By the way, London Fashion Week has started and I am getting excited; had a peek at Vivienne Westwood’s Red Label and got oh so nostalgic about the Big Smoke (London equivalent of the Big Apple, for those of you who don’t know). Enough digression though, let’s get down to business.
One thing is for sure, Aditi Rao Hydari (click for archive interview) looks as cute as a button in this ensemble. The combination of print with stripes gets a 10/10 from me and it makes the whole outfit work (the fact that I wear that combo very often myself doesn’t make me partial at all). Then comes the colour combination; peach with navy blue and white is unusual (not the ever expected red) and brilliant. She looks youthful, fresh and definitely not trying too hard. The hair and make-up are simple and in line with the rest of her appearance. Matching peep toe shoes and minimal accessories and she is good to go. And for the ladies who want to try out the look: if I am not mistaken I have seen the skirt in a Forever New shop and ONLY has skinny blue belts. I am sure you can get your hands on a stripy tank top anywhere and don’t be afraid to experiment with the colours even more.
Ali Zafar looks just in place dressed in smart casuals. I LOVE his jacket, which I think makes this look work. I love the fabric, the colour, the odd pocket, the white finish; it is perfect! I also like the combination with his denims, harmonious without being too matchy-matchy. I wonder though whether a different colour t-shirt and shoes would have worked better – it becomes a little dull as a whole. I would like to see a bright blue for the top at least and pair it with another colour in shoes. The sunglasses suit him really nicely and the watch is one accessory every man needs.
