Power dressing can't be a one-day affair. All 7 days of the week one should look great and feel confident. To help you get through the days of the week on a high, we bring you some guidelines.
Carry forward the fun-filled restful weekend by dressing in colourful light attires which make you feel bubbly – short or long cotton printed skirts whirling around your legs, making you feel feminine and on top of the world. This definitely will help you tackle new assignments with confidence.
A slightly cheeky affair. You can appear sassy and cheerful in short dressy attires embroidered heavily or with colourful prints, even as you get the hang of your week’s assignment.
It’s mid-week. Time to get down to serious business. Narrow pants or flared up comfy pants do the trick. Monochromes will suit the no-nonsensebut- all-work-mood.
You’re just getting a bit bogged down with all the work and commuting but work is still a priority. So bring in a little change. Experiment with your attire – wear calf-length flared pants, skirts or even denims reaching just above the ankle. Top it with an equally experimental blouse with broad collars, ruffles at the neck or with prominent sleeves.
Looking forward to the weekend. Friday dressing can herald the party scene of the next day. So wear pretty silk, chiffon or georgette attire with slight embroidery. Currently, textured plain silk attire is very trendy.
Time to party. Flared gowns, Anarkali churidar-kameez, noodle-strap dresses in silks, tulle, chiffons with elaborate accessories and a light lacy stole for the nights and matching stiletto shoes and clutch bags with slightly heavy make-up would set the party mood.
The best brunch time of the week. If there are plans to visit parents, in-laws before going to a friend’s place for a lazy lunch and tea, wear a sari or a salwarkameez. Dress up the sari with a matching jacket to go to a friend’s place or accessorize the salwar-kameez with beady funky accessory to set the mood for the meeting.
