Navy x TanFriday, July 03, 2015
Dress & Sunglasses - Thrift/ Earrings - Blur/
Shoes - Forever 21/ Bag - Dune London
It is the peak of summers, starting of the monsoons and Delhi has started seeing some relief. Also the time when you start trusting your flip flops and a pair of rugged shorts the most to save you from the good, old puddles. While the rainy season has hit hard in Mumbai, Delhi is still picking up and we wanted to wear these long casual dresses while we could.
Navy is quite a dark, wintery colour and pairing it with the classic tans and rusts to lighten it up, works as one of my favourite combinations in summers as well. So for a lunch date I decided to wear a long, navy maxi. The best thing about this dress is the comfy, lycra fabric making it breezy and the fact that I bought it for rs 300. Haha yes, hit gold. Just one of those days that a visit to Sarojni Nagar market pays off. Even these animal printed sunglasses are from there. A friend of mine had the same ones from Aldo which she lost and found the exact same again at Saroj. The market was full of these sunnies in all colours. Quite a buzz they are making!
Since the dress is absolutely plain, I wanted to mix it with bright colours. Not like candy pops but something to make it stand out. Pair it up with a fringed tan bag from Dune London that I picked on one of my holidays. I was so excited to know the brand had opened up in Delhi also but all that excitement died when I saw the prices. The prices are a bit high but then what are sales for! Fringe is probably one trend to be present throughout all fashion weeks. Fringed bags, dresses, capes and tops. No wonder I bought this bag the minute I saw it. Fringe and tan, just couldn't let go. With the tan bag, matched the tan sandals from Forever 21. They serve the purpose of flats with small block heels giving you a slight height and these too were quite reasonable. You may still find them online.
To break the navy and tan, I used a bit of rust. I love the colour. It is not orange, it is not brown. It is like a mix of both with a little red. Almost like the colour of bricks. Added to the lips and accessories. These gorgeous earrings are from a Mumbai based brand called Blur. I went onto their website and honestly fell in love with the edgy, super cool pieces. So swell. Loved how these earrings could look so victorian yet so very modern at the same time and added that extra refined touch to the outfit.
If you plan on wearing this look at night, just make sure to switch the sandals with a pair of beige or tan heels and you will be all set to go.
