Experiment 1: A Tunic in Different Avatars

There is this little grey tunic that I bought the other day, to match this particular pair of leggings I have. But as I am not a leggings person and I love to show my legs off (ok so sue me!), I get this brainwave and start teaming it with other stuff and voila I get these all new and different looks. Now honestly, am not really into accessories like costume jewellery or bags. But yeah I love shoes and jackets and have gotten around teaming them different stuff to create whole new looks all together :)

So anyways, this grey tunic of mine has these intricately structured sleeves that spell chic and feminine. Here's a look:
The structured sleeves!
I have done five different looks with it and here they are...
For A Lunch Date
Wearing the tunic as a dress with a pop of colour in the form of Indigo suede peep toe pumps brings in a casual chic look...

For An Afternoon of shopping
Who doesn't love shopping and if it is done with your best friends in a sunny autumn afternoon it becomes double the fun :) For my afternoon of shopping I paired the tunic with a pair of Red denims (thoughtfully gifted by my MIL). Yes you heard it right I paired with a pair of denims and yup with a front tuck! The Red here gives the pop of color and well I kept it at that!

Meeting up for a Family Get Together
This was an easy one... Since, my family stays in Mumbai and it is known for its laid back attitude in dressing, all I had to do was pair the tunic (as a dress) with my distressed Denim jacket (continuing the denim is IN trend) and got my myself a dash of bright via a pair of Purple ballerinas :) More on these flats in an upcoming post :)

Lounging Around With Guests At Home
People say things change after marriage... Really? Well technically yes it does but one thing that doesn't change is friends dropping in anytime of the day! Well isn't that what close friends are for? :) For this wear my original idea of Grey tunic paired with bright tights! Yup I know bright tights are IN! Btw, I apologize for the horrible image quality in the pic below :(

After Dinner Coffee Date
This is my fav look and my fav outing. My guy and I keep really busy schedules beacause of which it gets really difficult for both of us to actually do some dinner reservations and reach on time. Very often we are the last people sitting and eating in a restaurant. So what we generally do is eat at home but go out for a late night coffee... For this look, I team my grey tunic as a dress with my most favorite leather jacket, which was gifted by my mom :) The Red shade is just brilliant and it is just so soft and comfortable :)
