Folks, there are things you can wear to a cricket match, and there are things you just don’t. This girl I spotted at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium over the weekend got it all wrong! Firstly, she was dressed in all black on a warm day, with a funny floral, black-silver skirt. (I can’t even describe it!).
Then there was a sling bag across her body of a very odd mud colour and long dangling earrings (not in picture). But I can’t decide what’s worse- her shoes with the funny heels (aspiring me to be booties), or the black socks with them! Or the skirt. Or the odd black top…Yikes!
Meanwhile, I aimed for chic comfort at the India-England match- wearing a purple polo tee with lemony pants and my loafers of the moment.
What would you wear to a cricket match?
Anisha loves fashion, and she especially loves good bags. When we met her at a family do, she had mixed her blue-themed look (blue tunic, blue jeans and close-to-lilac nailpolish) with a black Miu Miu bag. Effect: eye-catching in the Mumbai sun!
Take a look:
Unfortunately, Anisha is terribly shy, so these are the best shots we could get. 🙂
Style Lessons from Anisha’s look:
- Who says you can’t wear blue with blue? Find an easy print, and you’re set.
- Matchy-matchy is not as bad as it’s made out to be, but contrast your makeup (in this case, nailpolish) and accessories.
We met Sujata at a recent fashion week, covering the event for the news website. While some of the recent fashion weeks have seen not-so-hot ramp shows, going by Sujata’s look, off-the-ramp looks were very fashionable indeed.
Sujata has cleverly coordinated high street brands like Promod for her clothes and cool accessories (check out the belt and necklace), with her hair and makeup (the side pony totally suits her). And she’s got the right dose of confidence to carry off the shorts!
Result: She’s looking tres chic!
