The world is a harsh place for a woman who dresses according to her whims and fancies. It's always 'under' or 'over' or 'too girly' or 'too macho'. It's always 'too much skin, who does she think she is' or 'too little skin, what a prude'. And let's not even forget the concerns of dressing for the weather and dressing to keep up with the trends. An outfit can symbolise so much more than what it appears to. I wear a lacey bralette to embrace every inch of my female body shape and to take immense pride in it. At the same time, a pair of denim overalls (initially meant as a piece of clothing for rail road workers in the USA who were men, of course) leaves me unfazed and I subsume it as a part of my personal style. I do think there is a lot to be said about embracing feminism in the sartorial choices we make and I do think I'm doing it proudly.
Dressing up is an art and just like everything else, women should rightfully possess the same right as men to create an artful journey of sartorial choices for themselves.
Heavily inspired by paints, street art and everything that resembles an artist's uniform I put together an outfit with a plus/minus of basically five things that are giving me life in this hot/cold weather in Delhi.
- Denim overalls
- White sneakers
- A kaleidoscopic scarf
- A maxi shirt dress in black
- A large portfolio clutch in leather
