Personal Style | Epilogue

If I could describe the past year in one word, I'd probably call it 'momentous'; even if it hasn't always been for the right reasons. I mean, why would it! From most Indians spending hours in snaking queues to a real estate mogul turning into a president elect, 2016 dropped the bar like it was hot. Even the genius of George Micheal and Carrie Fisher weren't spared in its wake. With a year like that, going out with a bang seems inapplicable, right? Wrong. No matter how terrible it may seem, there's nothing that fashion can't fix.

Even on the most trying days (or years, in this case) dig deep inside to fix yourself up, slip on your killer heels and walk into a room like you own the damn place. So it's been a dismal 365 days to say the least; but it deserves a fitting send-off nonetheless - if not for the year that was but at least for the year that will be. Regardless of how 2016 fared for you, it's time to bring out the calligraphy pen and write a fitting epilogue to it. My instruments of choice are a heap of sequins and a classic red lip.

2016 has been a year of learning for me. Tip-toeing into a career, carving out time for hobbies, lending Style File more of my touch and pushing my personal style boundaries were just a few of the paths taken. From discovering new fashion icons to trying a vampy lip, this year was also one of experimentation; one of which led to this trench coat. While I bought it on a whim with no foreseeable place to wear it; (thanks for that, Mumbai humidity!) it was the first thing I could think of when a light chill hit the city. Of course, I was apprehensive about the merger of sequins and sneakers but then again, it is the party season and everything is allowed ! For an added flair, I went with metallic accessories, a messy bob and dark nails. Together, it's a look that's doesn't discriminate between a night of dancing or a morning workout, whatever be your interest.

So whether your year was a complete drag or a cake walk  dotted with cherries, this is your chance to give it a fitting farewell. As I write my epilogue to a year full of new experiences, thank you for lending your digital presence to Style File, for your endless double taps and comments which is worth every single word I pen down. Here's to a spectacular end to 2016 and an even better 2017!
