The fashion hopping continued on the day 2 of London Fashion Week when I visited Masaba Gupta‘s pop up shop at the Old Brompton Gallery in West London. The Indian fashion designer has truly contributed some fantastic creations in the style domain with ”a diffusion line catering to women from the age group of 18-40 years”. Her silhouettes are fuss free, vibrant and commercially viable. What better way to spend that Sunday afternoon of London fashion Week browsing through her latest collection over a glass of bubbly and delectable desserts! And it was wonderful to have met her in person. Sharing with you what I wore to the event. This turned out to be my first official autumn look this year. Lots more coming in the next few weeks. After all being an autumn-born, it is my most favourite season of all.

Those of you London fashionistas couldn’t make it to the event, I have created a vlog for you all and shared below to get a glimpse of it all. Please share your thoughts on Masaba‘s creations.
Autumn has officially arrived, and while days are still long-ish with sunshine playing hide and seek in London but things are getting much chillier especially early mornings and late evenings. Enter my protagonist colours this autumn: burgundy and navy blue. I fell in love with burgundy when I bought these pair of ankle boots last winter. As you may know, I love a versatile piece with a touch of feminine flair. There’s something so versatile about a woman making pieces like a pussy bow blouse with frills and a beret hat like this her own without looking like you’re ”back to school”!
Headwear is big news for this season – anyone who braves a hat projects an air of confidence. They enhance – or at the very least change an outfit. But what makes the beret so relevant for 2017? Despite its military roots, the beret has long been associated with creatives and hipsters throughout history – they were worn by beatniks, painters, directors and poets. Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, Edith Piaf, Marlene Dietrich, John Lennon, Yoko Ono and Brigitte Bardot all loved them. It was the hat favoured by intellectual free-thinkers. This is why I love Fashion. It is one of the ways you express yourself! So, make it stronger and impactful!
Another favourite trend of the moment is definitely a printed midi-skirt. I can think of very few (if any) occasions for which a skirt like this is not appropriate this Autumn, when it’s not warm enough to be going out bare legged but a woollen tights is just too much. From wanting to make a good first impression at work, to Friday night-outs with friends, there is always a suitable way to style your midi-skirt. My current favorite way to wear mine has got to be either with a pair of ankle boots, sling-back kitten heels and white sneakers. And the best part? They are perfect for any body shape and height.
But whether a beret hat, burgundy accessories, midi skirts like these are a one-way ticket to looking suitably sophisticated and chic this Autumn, no matter the occasion, but it is YOU who make it all look chic. Wear it with confidence!
