| Victorian meets Modern |
A romance between ruffles and fur
The winter came all of a sudden, didn’t it? It was sunny one day and the freezing winds the next. I was such a happy kid when the winter was not so extreme. Anyhow the good thing is it is the legit “fur weather”.
I had this look in mind for the longest time and planned to shoot it with a photographer but things did not work out well. The whole idea behind this look was Victorian meets modern Indian. Ruffles are a common element in my shirt, skirt and shoes. If balanced well, the ruffles become a part of the outfit instead of over-powering the outfit. Each of the pieces in this outfit are statement pieces on their own but together they fit like pieces of a puzzle.
The ruffle detailed shirt and the hand-painted ruffle skirt from Adagio are the Victorian fashion inspired pieces in my outfit. The black faux fur coat and the silver Jhumka’s add a touch of Indian modern to the outfit. The ruffle shoes are a DIY and I had shared a video on how to make them on my instagram.

Wearing a skirt in winter is no easy task and with temperatures dropping to 4 degrees it just seems kind of impossible. I had worn pants beneath my skirt and you can also layer your skirt with a thermal or pants, it makes a huge difference,trust me.
This look is so easy and yet it makes a strong statement. Keeping the base outfit monochrome and adding a fur coat or a leather jacket is my mantra this winter. What is yours?
Until Next time
