You Look Different!

Ladies it’s that time of the year. You know, where you are literally forced against your wishes to do the dreaded deed: Repeat an Outfit. (My heart breaks every time I say that phrase, ‘sigh’.) Between party hopping and social gatherings you discover that you have reached the end of your closet line. What’s a girl to do in this situation? Well then, have no fear, with some very clever accessorizing and nifty make-up you can repeat the same outfit over-and-over again without having to bother about the infamous,"Oh No she didn't!"

In this post you will find some easy-breezy styling tips that will make you the style bee of the party scene and yet not damage your entire savings account.

When styling the same outfit for multiple occasions, I recommend choosing at least one minimalist piece, preferably in a solid colour. Since every one has an black something-dress, tunic, tops, jacket or pants- I have chosen the all time favourite LBD for my looks. 

This trendy bandeau dress by Dsquared2 is a modern take on the classic little black dress. Chic and multi-functional it can easily be mixed and matched to create a number of different looks and styles.

Look I
Since it's holiday season, I have chosen to style my first look with one of  India's most loved and used  festive colour combo: Red and Gold. The black, red and gold combo creates a bold and vibrant look and can be worn to a number of cocktail parties or GNOs .

Look II

For Look II, I went with muted colours. Adding pink bag and necklace in this other wise somber grey,brown and black palette, creates an instant modern ladylike ensemble. This is a more subdued look and it is perfect for office socials and high tea events.

The final look has a little bit of drama and a whole lot of chic-ness. An absolute multi-occasion look it is for those who like to play it safe but yet be keep it stylish.

It's just not us mere mortals who are forced to repeat their outfits. Celebs all over the world have atleast once worn an  identical ensemble as someone else. Oh! the joy we get catching two celebrities wearing the same outfit. But, what makes one look stand apart from the other is the way they choose to accessorize and style the complete look.

Remember, any look is one accessory too much or less form its fab destination. Choose wisely and you too can walk around confidently like your fave fashionista. Like the outfit, the complementing accessories has to also be occasion appropriate.
