Introducing 'Colour in Formals'


People who know me know that I love colours. And so I have decided to start a series of posts dedicated to including more colour in formal clothes.

Generally, western formals (Indian formals include the salwar kameez which can be quite colourful!) include dull colours like black, grey, beige and navy blue. Of course, there are also brighter formal clothes, but generally the dull colours dominate. And I agree that these colours look more formal than say a bright green suit. But wearing only a dull grey suit can be so boring!

So my new series is dedicated to having more colour/brightness in office life ;-)

Either by wearing brighter clothes which are still super formal, or by including a hint of colour, even if it is only through a pair of earrings or a colourful bag. 

I will start with a note that I will not be very regular with these series since it is not everyday that you can include something bright. But whenever the inspiration strikes, there will be a post :-)

So I will start off the series with today's outfit which includes a top which has 5 colours in it! But I think it still looks formal when paired with fine checkered pants which look grey. I have also added lovely bright green button earrings and a light yellow tote to add more colour.

So let me know what you think of this new series and today's OOTD :-)







Top - Chemistry
Pants - GAP
Belt - road side shop in Masjid Bandar
Earrings - local exhibition in Ghatkopar
Pumps - Mint Drop (bought in Japan)
Bag - bought in Japan (near Asakusa)
