This month has felt a little lighter and brighter than usual. Part of it may be a literal brightness (thank you daylight savings time for making early mornings easier), but I can’t help but think that my Gratitude Challenge, which kicked off on April 1st, has been the reason for the extra kick in my step.
One of my favorite fashion-related interview questions is “What’s that one style hack to always remember?” It’s simple. Nothing makes you look as on point as dressing according to your body type. I can almost hear you guys groaning, “Oh… but Masoom, we know that already.” (And if that’s the case, I’m clearly doing a good job. Teehee.)
But what I want to talk about today is how dressing for your body type translates to ethnic wear. Given how important this fashion genre is to us Desis, I’ve decided to give you my two cents on the matter. This topic isn’t discussed as much as it should be and with the trends for traditional outfits changing so frequently, it can be a bit overwhelming to know what works for you and what doesn’t. Using two absolutely gorgeous Sue Mueoutfits, I’m going to show you exactly how to pick the best ethnic wear for you.
I’m sure you are familiar with (atleast I hope you are) my #WomenInBusiness series that I launched on Youtube. You can check it out here if you haven’t. Why I started this campaign is another story altogether and rather long to get into here but to sum it up minus-ing all the emotion – this is where I’ll be talking about one of my greatest passions – the business of fashion, extensively.
Today we’re talking about how to gain real Instagram followers and increasing your engagement.
Instagram and the internet in general, can be rather deceptive. The sore truth is, I’m not always poised and definitive about my life, about the choices I need to make every single day and as a matter of fact, even my outfits! I have my valleys of emotions and sometimes, after going through the whole cycle of questioning, I end up realising what we all know – life is about uncertainty.
Your survival mechanisms will make you second guess everything – so it’s your job to find a way to remind yourself to continue feeling good about the one thing that matters the most – YOURSELF. I find myself repeatedly turning to a couple of things to make myself feel more confident, be it on an everyday basis or on important days. Here’s what works for me!
I don’t know about you but I love my white denims. And my white tops too. It’s two things you’ll find in multiples in my wardrobe & yet in the season of dropping temperatures, I just couldn’t figure out how to put them to good use.
