Personal Style | Daily diary: Lakmé Fashion Week W/F 2016

When fashion week arrives, there's a heady buzz that fills the atmosphere. The backstage area is filled with post-show glee, the flashbulbs are flashing at a million miles an hour and everybody who is anybody is dressed to the nines. A week prior, when I was planning my fashion week wardrobe, I knew that I was bound to be busy. For a beauty editor at Lakmé Fashion Week, it's a juggling act of interviews, show and shoots.

 Keeping with my style sensibilities, I decided to play my favourite athleisure card since I knew it would get me through to the fashion week finishing line while looking amazing. Here's a daily diary of what I wore to the Lakmé Fashion Week.

On day 1, I was raring to go and anticipating a lot of action, so I opted for light washed jeans with a DIY patchwork t-shirt. To balance the sportiness of the look, I paired it with a sleek bob and red lip.

Day 2 of fashion week was spent at a shoot hence, comfort was key to me while I intended on dressing a little girly. To serve both purposes, I paired a tulle skirt with sturdy oxfords and a large tote to get me through the day.

The midway mark of day 3 brought out the excitement in me. That's when I styled my favourite look of this season which involved my dream shoes and one of my favourite cartoon characters. I kept my bob straight and went with a coral lip.

I've always love both sportiness as well as femininity so on day 4, I decided to mix them together. For this, I went for a light, fresh look that was trendy by pairing a frilly maxi skirt with white kicks and keeping the rest of the look muted.

By the 5th day of fashion week, I decided to power through by keeping it bright. For this, I wore a simple yet vibrant dress which I complemented with neutral accessories, loose curls and a bold lip. Just what I needed to complete a manic, fashionable week in style!
