Friday Dress Code

Guide to Casual Friday Dress Code:

Thank God it’s Friday!

Indeed the 9-5 schedule looks bearable when it comes to Friday, so what’s your Winter Friday Dress Code? If you have always been a  denim person then probably you’re running out of ideas for the Friday look! People are eschewing casual wardrobes and dressing more stylishly on the last working day of the week.

When Friday comes around the dress standards are more relaxed and you can experiment with the casual and the corporate looks.

If you ask me, I prefer to keep the denim away from my work wardrobe and prefer to exploit them over the weekends.

 

So, here it is my guide to a Winter Friday Dressing:

Friday Dress Code

A long sleeved bodycon dress, which I styled in different ways is my Friday staple outfit. I love dresses and probably this made me experiment this executive style look.

This smart casual allows me to look comfortable keeping in mind the Weekend mood. Friday’s are the most relaxed days of the week before I think what I am grabbing for breakfast, I wouldn’t like to hunt around my wardrobe thinking what to wear.

Looking effortlessly dressed this Long Sleeved Bodycon dress from Cotton On keep up with my style quotient.

“Dressing tip: Style a dress of your choice with a contrast scarf or the Humble Denim Jacket, not to forget to pair it with a pair of Boots or shoes of similar colour”

I love to add a pop of colour to my Corporate look, hence the red lipstick does the needful, accessories are a great way to add colours to your overall look too!

Experimenting with different looks on a Friday makes you look less boring among your office colleagues, well everyone loves to see well-dressed people around them. That’s the 1st thing everyone notices even before you utter a word to anyone.

” Dressing tip: Always wear whatever you’re comfortable in, don’t be afraid to infuse a bit of your personality in whatever you wear or flaunt”

So, whats your favourite Friday Dress code?

Let me know what you love experimenting with?

Top 6 Winter Fashion Trends

Winter is here to stay and we can’t deny this fact, so why not enjoy it and bring out the best trends this season!

Without much talking, I jump into to decode my Winter Fashion. Melbourne winters are harsh and chilly and you must have heard it over and again layering is the game. So, can we keep it stylish even with tonnes of layering?

Well, the answer is yes.

  • Red is the colour: Monochrome is boring and to stand out pop a red trench coat on any monochrome/ black outfit to make yourself stand out. This adds a fresh pop to the usual mundane outfits. Don’t forget to pair it up with your red lips.

This trench coat from Portman has been with me through the Autumn to Winter transition and I still prefer to camaarry it along on an otherwise rainy and Gloomy Melbourne winter.

 

  • Hot Pink it’s a girl thing: Every girl has their favourite pink outfit in her wardrobe, so do i. This hot pink trench coat from Forever New stands out and goes well with an all-black outfit. I prefer to pair it with black boots and a fuchsia scarf to keep it stylish.
  • A touch of Metallic: I know not many of you have experimented with Metallic, as it’s tough to pair. So, I decided to wear it with a black top and paired it with a white fur jacket. Metallic touches add an element of glam to your Winter wardrobe.
  • The humble Denim Jacket: The Denim Jacket is a hardworking wardrobe staple and you probably can’t stay without it any season. So, I love pairing this with almost anything and everything be it a dress, a bodycon dress or denim over denim.

  • The Blanket Coat: This comes handy during the chilly days in Melbourne. The lack of form and structure allow the jacket to drape itself around the wearer’s body, making it versatile and flattering for most. So, wearing it alone or pair it up with a belt both the looks goes well.

 

  • The Corporate Pink Jacket: If you’re a 9-5 person, you know how much overrated the black and the blue blazer is, therefore, I prefer to flaunt a girly colour and yet stick to the work norms. This pink Jacket is Friday work staple and I prefer to create a new look by pairing with either denim or a denim skirt.
  • Boots: Can’t think of Melbourne winter without boots, I love the low cuts boots and my favourite colours will be black and brown which normally goes along with most of the above outfits.

 

So, if you love any of the above looks, don’t forget to drop a line saying which one. My personal favourite shall always be the Pink trench coat. So, folks go ahead and experiment with your Winter wardrobe and don’t forget to keep it stylish.

Autumn Styled shoot!

Autumn my favorite season of the year:

All leaves are falling down the orange, yellow, red and brown; Autumn that time of the year, when we sit back and enjoy the colors of nature. So I decided to capture these colors in my memory lane in the form of a styled shoot.

The location which I choose was the Royal Botanical Garden, this happened to be the last week of Autumn and the colors were still at its best.

So, here I present to you two of the outfits that I styled up

Autumn shoot in Melbourne

An Off Shoulder Lace top from the Valley Girl Australia was my favorite pick of the season, couldn’t wear it much due to the short lived summer. So I styled it up with the formal black trousers from my work wardrobe.Needless to say, this chic look also goes along for a Saturday brunch with family and friends or team up with the humble denim jacket to complete the look.

Autumn Shoot in Melbourne!

The second outfit was a fusion ethnic wear exclusively for me designed by Siya- a stitched Clothing brand from India. If you know me by now, I love off shoulders and this outfit had all the elements of making you feel like a princess, the long trial added to the much-needed drama.

The reason I choose an ethnic outfit as the deep maroon colors complimented well with the season’s colors.
