How to cheat at Saree Styling

Gone are days when you had to wear the saree in traditional ways, sarees are redefining Indian essentials, it’s no longer used only for dancing atop the Swiss mountains or for socials fucntions 😉

Jacket for Business Attire

 

For a tropical country like Singapore and a hot humid city like Mumbai, I knew my client had limitations when it came to adding layers to their outfits.
However, layers do add authority to your outfit as a whole. It’s not necessary to be in a heavy wool suit or for that matter even in a matched suit if your work does not demand you to be.
Jackets do add authority and nothing says powerful and serious like a third layer, so choose a stylised version of a peplum jacket or cape jacket or if you are the classic type of person than choosing regular lapel classics in black and grey. various options to choose from, you can read my blog on types of jackets here.
