Monday Mode ☆ Styling with scarves

neon pants yellow scarf Sanctum-2

Indian women are great with scarves. I didn’t know that scarves in India are not only for the styling purpose in fashion but also for a practical reason to accommodate the climate. It gets quite cool in Mumbai from November to February. It can get cold in December and January after the sunset and as you know, scarves keep you warm. I started to style with a scarf more frequently after I moved to India.

I love my converse, but for someone like me who need some help with heels, I must say that pumps balance out the proportion better. I love my neon pants from GAP, but they are not necessarily in the most flattering shape. I love the casual look you get with converse, but if I want to emphasize more on the look as a whole, I would pick a pair of pumps. The pumps also add to appear a tad bid more dressed. It is interesting to see how what we wear can shape the style of the whole look.

インド人女性はスカーフの使い方が上手です。インドでは、スカーフはファッションの目的だけでなく、気候に合わせて使いこなせるという便利さも兼ねています。ムンバイは11月から2月の間涼しくなります。12月と1月は、夜日が暮れた後、肌寒くなったりもするので、スカーフは寒さよけにもなります。コンバースを着るとカジュアルな雰囲気になるのが好きな一方、スタイルに重点をおくなら、足を長く見せる効果のあるパンプスが良いかなと思います。インドに来てから、よくスカーフを使ってスタイリングしてみるようになりました。

コンバースは大好きなのですが、足が長くないと、やっぱりパンプスが体のバランスを取ってくれると感じます。GAPで購入したニオンパンツは大好きです。コンバースとスタイリングするとカジュアルな感じになりって可愛いのですが、足長効果を得るにはやはりパンプスかな、という気がします。パンプスだと、同じ格好ですも、少しドレスアップしている感じが出ます。足元が全体のイメージを決めるのは、面白いですね。

      Thanks, Bombay Jules! I bought them at a discount store in the U.S, but inside says Calvin Klein. They were on sale during last summer!
