What are you wearing?

It is pre-draped sari in black, blue and grey. 

It's a creation by two relatively new fashion designers Saaksha and Kinni. 

This is their first-ever collection and the outfit is pretty unique and interesting. 

Style mantra

I'm not one for only brands. I guess I dress as per the occasion. I shop online and am a street shopper. 

I choose something that works and suits my personality. 99 per cent of the time comfort is important.

What are you wearing? 

I'm wearing a fashion jacket from Quirkbox's summer collection that they showcased on Day One of the LFW 2016. 

I have teamed it up with a Guess denim shirt and a white cotton skirt from Zara. 

I chose white sneakers from Aldo and my sunglasses are also from Aldo. 

As it is spring-summer, I went in for something light and comfortable in white and denim, which really works for the season. 

For my hair, I choose to wear the half-knot as it is something that is trendy and really comfortable given the hot summer has set in. 

Cost of the look

The look is around Rs 9,000.

Style mantra

It is a mix between style and comfort.

What are you wearing? 

It is the first day of Lakme Fashion Week, so I chose a red dress, something classy yet sober. 

I purchased the dress from Bangkok. 

And these red shoes are from Tresmode. I really love shoes! 

Cost of the look

Rs 6,500/- 

Style mantra

Stay fit. If you are fit and healthy from within, that will reflect on your attitude and you'll be more confident.

What are you wearing?

I am a fashion student and my outfit is created by one of my seniors.

It has lovely geometric prints. 

I love the colour black, and I thought it would be a great idea to wear a cool black outfit for the fashion week. 

If you notice the ends of the pants, you'll see that one is symmetrical and the other is asymmetrical. 

Style mantra

I will choose something trendy and quirky.

What are you wearing? 

My white shirt with black stripes is from Oxygen. 

The red skirt is from H&M. 

I have teamed the outfit with a pair of black shoes from New Look. 

It's a complete mix and match. I didn't plan anything, just put the look together. 

Cost of the look

It is under Rs 10,000.  

Style mantra

A blend of being stylish yet comfortable is very important. 

You can be stylish and comfortable as well. Being stylish doesn't mean you have to wear uncomfortable high heel stilettos.
