Women’s style is the index with which we judge trends in fashion.With fashions changing all the time, how do you dress stylishly without being a slave to fashion? Check out these six looks.  

Work wear
Truly feminine work wear has its own look and feel. And this does not solely consist of wearing pants to office. No matter how individual your style of dressing may be, the basics of style remain the same.

Structured ensembles provide just the right amount of chutzpah to your look.

The Look:
This is a classic power look—from the austere, yet stylish, hairdo to the powerful silhouette, which flatters your feminity.

She’s Wearing: Chestnut brown dress from Escada for Rs 33,999 Bronze neckpiece used as wristband from Aldo. Price on request Daimon’s Lock bag from Tod’s. Price on request Lulu Masch Pelle Pump from Tod’s.
Price on request

The Look: A more classic look, yet this is an ensemble that wouldn’t look out of place on the high street or at a party. She’s Wearing: Shirt from Mango for Rs 2,990 Dark Charcoal trousers from Guess by Marciano for Rs 11,295 Belt from Charles & Keith for Rs 900 Hemet Due Manici Media handbag from Tod’s for Rs 92,000 Loafer from Metallo for Rs 27,000

Evening wear
This is where you shine. Forget the little black dress for a bit. We’ll assume you already have it. It’s time to get yourself some dresses and belts to match.

Unlike Fall/Winter styles last year, the emphasis is no longer on large belts with prominent buckles but on thinner styles that sit well with the overall look.

The Look:
Go for an open hair look with muted makeup. A properlystructured dress like this one falls just right. To break the monotony and accentuate your waist, wear a thin belt.

She’s Wearing: Brown rock dress from Escada for Rs 22,999 Belt from Charles & Keith. Price on request Assioma steel and gold watch from Bvlgari for Rs 3,02,100 Shoes from Valentino for Rs 33,000.

The Look: With winter just a few months away, why not go for a silk dress? It falls beautifully and injects just the right amount of swish into your look.

A glowing skin, smoky eyes and soft lips decked by a nude gloss and accessories enhance the washed-out colours.

She’s Wearing:
Floral silk dress from Valentino for Rs 71,000 Gold bracelet from Bvlgari for Rs 2,56,600 Belt from Charles & Keith for Rs 1,050 Purse from Bottega Veneta.
Price on request Shoes from Valentino for Rs 33,000

Casual wear
Break away from the tyranny of jeans. From funky stockings to skirts of all shapes and sizes, there is a lot to choose from. Focus on mixing many disparate elements for a distinctive look.

Casual wear
The Look:
Since it is casual wear we’re talking about, it should also be said that it is a lot of fun to mix and match clothes. The focus of this ensemble is on two things—comfort and fun.

She’s Wearing: Grey dress from Araxa for Rs 3,899 Belt from Charles & Keith for Rs 1,399 Shoes from Guess for Rs 4,495

The Look: A touch of the wild West in the structured waistcoat and a nice floral printed skirt adds up to one great look. Wear them with ankle-length boots to complete the look.

She’s Wearing: Cream waistcoat from Mango for Rs 1,590 Necklace from Promod. Price on request Floral skirt from Mango for Rs 4,450 Shoes from Bottega Veneta. Price on request
