An outfit you can live in
Joggers and vest.
Comfy pants, something stretchable and a jacket.
Work wear essentials
Tracks, vest, stylish jacket and sneakers, always in a neutral palette. It’s my uniform.
Flats or heels
Flats during the day and heels at night.
An outfit you can’t wear, yet can’t get rid of
I have a closet full of pieces like that…India can be a very restrictive place.
