On Thursday, actor Karisma Kapoor showcased the perfect desk-to-disco outfit at her father, actor Randhir Kapoor’s birthday celebration, which was also attended by mother Babita and sister Kareena Kapoor. Teaming shimmering ox blood pleats with a simple fiery orange and black bodice, the Bibhu Mohapatra floor-touching dress made sure Karisma looked sartorially up-to-date, in a look that blended day and night fairly well.
What set this look apart was how it blended old-world elegance with modern flourishes. The ensemble, part of the designer’s Fall 2017 Ready-to-Wear collection, was given a romantic touch with subtle accents: The fitted bodice lent Karisma an air of sophistication, which was augmented with a grand, sweeping, pleated skirt.
Even as the daring colours and a studded-leather bag from Gucci added a fun, unexpected twist to Karisma’s look, her ox blood lips and light smoky eyes definitely packed a punch. Blow-dried natural hair completed the ensemble to make a bold, yet polished statement.
Whether your style aesthetic is classic, rocker, or trendy, you must work a pleated maxi dress into your wardrobe. There is such a thing as office-appropriate partywear, so give a fashion-forward twist to your office apparel, like Karisma: Wear your pleated dress with flats by day and trade for embellished stilettos for after dark.
