Your favourite fashion piece
Lingerie is for me the most important and my favourite. It’s versatile and the closest to your skin. If you feel good, it elevates your confidence.
What will you be seen wearing on a casual day?A pair of shorts and an oversized shirt. I like shopping from the menswear section and opting for oversized stuff.
A fashion trend you are obsessed with.
It has to be menswear. We are in a time and era when the lines between men’s fashion and womenswear have blurred. Even though I feel men don’t go for womenswear, except for a few who like to experiment and can carry it well. Ranveer Singh is an example. However, it is much easier for a woman to steal men’s fashion ensembles. A shirt is the best pick, and something that can be styled in varied ways. If you shop from the men’s section, make sure you get a size where your shoulders drop, but not more than two inches. Pair a men’s shirt with something from your own closet like a fitted denim skirt. You can also go for men’s shoes. Sneakers are good!
Your fashion icon
I love Indianwear, so Rekhaji’s style is what I love. Though my style is very mood-driven but I’m always in for Indian wear. Every time I want to wear a sari, I raid my mother’s wardrobe. I believe that saris are very versatile — you can team them with different blouses and wear them again and again. I come from Calcutta so I like handloom pieces such as kantha saris. I also love the kasavu sari. I prefer organic clothing because it’s time for us to make ourselves aware of the harm we are causing to our environment. I buy a lot of eco-friendly garments from Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Puducherry.
