Mansi Has Found Herself An Unbelievably Stylish Blazer
I remember how I’d always end up with formal clothes that were inevitably black when I went shopping with my father as a little girl. Now, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing because I am a firm believer that black is beautiful. But black on an 8-year-old when the rest of my gal pals were wearing every hue of pink and other girly colours made me feel like Wednesday from The Addams Family. Only when I moved out of home — first to study, then to work — did I actually start shopping for myself. Even now, I subconsciously find myself veering towards formal clothes in grey or black. I guess some memories stick to you more than others!
Even though I’m trying hard to break out of the rut and incorporate more colours and feminine silhouettes in my wardrobe, I simply can’t ignore the lure of a great formal outfit. The last couple of days have been a little hectic at work and I’m really looking forward to an upcoming after-work drinks sesh with my #HauteSqaud. And so I’ve been on Mission: Hunt-For-A -Great-Work-To-Party-Outfit for some time. Obviously, the #HauteSquad won’t paint the town red in Plain Jane clothes, and any occasion to play dress up is always welcome around here!
I found this extremely sharp blazer on Koovs today, that was love at first sight. First things first, I heart that steely grey colour. It’s so sophisticated, that #ICantEven! The striped print gives this blazer a textured appearance, and I love how the open front gives this a relaxed vibe. The structured shoulders make it look sharp in an uptown chic manner. I could either wear this over a stylish blouse and pleated trousers or with a structured jumpsuit. So much love!
