Street Style Story: Roop

It has happened many times before – we spot someone who we would like to have never ending conversations  with about style and aesthetic, only to be refused given their shyness to come in front of the camera, time crunch and sometimes the inability to understand why two young strangers in their early 20s would like to know about them. It is a sad realization, that it’s only young women who are comfortable and open to the idea.

On Fusion, Friendship and Chikankari

Street Style Delhi: On Fusion, Friendship and Chikankari

It’s a good day in the otherwise sweltering month of May. However, this year, May has been rather forgiving with the rain gods and global warming making their presence feel every other day. Right outside the Summer House Cafe in Aurobindo Market, I see two girls engaged in a conversation, unperturbed by people and everything around. I break this holy matrimony as I see both of them wearing Chikan craft, a craft synonymous with summer.

Street Style Delhi

If there’s one trend which has seemed way too tricky to be “executed” on the streets of Delhi for our normal Dilliwalas recently, it has to be fish net/net stockings. The trend didn’t seem adept in practice, but on paper I.e. fashion magazines. But this one changed our mind: easy-peasy with a basic tee-dress and can be added by the fashion conscious to their wardrobe.

SS17 in Delhi: Polkas

Street Style Delhi

Polka dots were a fashion favorite from the 1920’s to the 60’s.Whereas in the West, polka dotted dresses and tops were the general, the Indians embraced polka dots in the form of sarees and puffed sleeved alwaar-kameez. Fun, youthful sometimes even high fashion is how we visualise polka dots. They can’t help but make you smile!
