A Quick Outfit of the Day with a Statement Necklace

by Mehak Shahani on August 6, 2014

in Fashion

When it comes to fashion weeks, Im always rummaging around my closet for  things to wear. See, as a blogger there are certain rules of what NOT to wear at Fashion week for me- nothing too tight, nothing too short, nothing too OTT formal. Unlike the rest of the audience that has to politely sit and clap, we guys have to jostle with the media, sometimes sit in the photographer pit and pretty much be ready to sprint for the next media photo op that occurs so I much prefer things that are laidback and chic versus complicated , high strung outfit.

If this dress looks familiar its because I wore this at Lakme Fashion week in Mumbai as well- I like how simple it is from the front and then when you turn..BAM, there is this big scoop neck at the back

outfit-of-the-day

 

The bare eyes are because my eyes are just getting so itchy and dry its annoying me, Everytime I apply something they start to burn up.

Photo from my Lakme Fashion Week Photodiary

 

outfit-of-theday

 

I pretty much stuck to the same type of look as last time, but just added one chunky necklace and removed the belt, and changed up my tribal flats ! That necklace by the way is from Rosabelle Treasures which have some REALLY pretty pieces which are more affordable than what you would otherwise get in the market.

Lipstick: Chambor 601 Lipstick (love this)

Dress: Zara

That dress is so pretty! It’d be great if you could post a photo of the handbag you carried (not too clear in the photo above)?

Mehak – what do you do about inner-wear for such outfits?!

Haha good question. I have a multi way bra , which has straps that can be wrapped around my waist but honestly thia dress is too low even for that so I got inbuilt cups attached in this one…

Thanks, getting cups attached is brilliant! i have the Victoria’s Secret multiway bra too but i was thinking that its straps would still be visible for a dress like this.

I agree that one should wear something more stylish chic and comfy than something that looks wow but makes you stick to your place (as you might have problems moving around ;)).. Liked what you wore for a occasion like this..

Looking pretty head to toe- right from hairdo to stylish footwears.
Did someone tell you Mehak that you look like Ileana D’Cruz?
These are perhaps one of your best OOTD clicks.

There it is- you’re always dressed so immaculately and it all looks so effortless. Gorge.

Love this outfit- love the drama at the back! Your OOTD posts are pretty much my favourites.

Chic u look Mehak, can someone suggest how to style a similar over sized dress which fits perfectly over all but a bit loose near the under arms (say u bought dress but you realised it later that its two sizes bigger than your actual size) I styled it once with denim jacket now looking for more ideas.

You look pretty in that dress! And the lipstick shade is gorgeous :)

The outfit is spot on! I’ve also been loving statement necklaces recently. I used to be a minimal jewelry person, but it seems like I am getting bolder as I get older. :P
