I was in Delhi a few weeks ago for work. Work I did, but I found time to explore a lot of the famous spots there and on top of my list of places to hit was the famous Sarojini Nagar! And boy, am I glad I did. This place surpassed all my expectations. To be honest, I’m not a street shopper. I like shopping from the comfort of my home and occasionally visiting a store or two, but trying to find something decent from heaps of clothes stacked together is not my cup of tea. Well, I proved myself wrong! And all the credit goes to the place – this is the most fashion forward street shopping experience ever. Name the top fashion trends of 2015 and you will find it there – stripes, denim, white, maxis, florals, olive green! And the best part is the pricing – 300 INR was the max I paid for a piece of clothing – what a bargain! I really can’t wait to go back to Delhi and stock up my wardrobe some more. No wonder these Delhi girls are always so well dressed.
One of my star buys from my shopping spree at Sarojini was this assymmetrical floral dress. Assymmetrical hems in skirts and dresses have been finding a lot of favour since last year. It’s a go-to for a casual, sexy look. This style is a perfect way to show off those well-toned legs that you’ve been sweating over and rest assured it’s going to look flattering. You can find them in many styles, diagonal or hi-low, there’s something for everyone.
The best way to style a dress/skirt of this kind is to have fun with it. These type of outfits are best suited for a summer brunch or sun downer parties. If you are the skinny types, this is a great option for you to add a little room to your outfit and accentuate those curves. Since there are already assymmetries involved, add a nice belt to cinch in the waist, throw in some statement accessories, experiment with bold colors and most importantly, feel great about yourself. One tip to keep in mind – since one part of the outfit is loose and flowy, add in one structured aspect to pull your look together. Like in my outfit below, I could have added a tan belt to add more structure to the dress. I also intend to wear a white shirt over the dress and knot up the front to convert this into a skirt. Heels will take your look a notch up, but I stuck to my tan flats to keep the look balanced and comfortable while I was sipping on my Alphonso Mango Starbucks!
