WHAT’S YOUR PERSONAL AESTHETIC?

I like to be comfortable with a touch of elegance. I enjoy trends, but balance that by investing in classic wardrobe staples and accessories. A personal rule is to never leave home without lipstick, a blow dry and some earrings.

WHAT ARE YOUR STYLE PREFERENCES FOR AN EVENING OUT?

A pair of heels adds instant glamour to an evening outfit. This Summer, I’ve enjoyed the plethora of cuts that have been in fashion – from edgy bootlegs to playful shalwars. I love pairing my looks with neon accents to counter the balmy evenings.

HOW HAS YOUR STYLE EVOLVED AS YOU HAVE GROWN OLDER?

My style has definitely evolved over the years. My love for all things fashion continues, but I’ve become a bit more understated with age.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN DRESSING FOR ONE’S AGE?

I definitely believe so. Figures and contours change, and we must adapt accordingly.

WHAT’S YOUR PERSONAL AESTHETIC?

I’m definitely a jeans person! I can’t do without them. I can be super dressy in them for an evening out or remain casual.

WHAT ARE YOUR STYLE PREFERENCES FOR AN EVENING OUT?

My style has definitely changed with time. My friends will laugh if I write this but yes, definitely more sophisticated.

I believe that age is just a number. Enjoy yourselves while you can and dress up in anyway as long as you feel good about it.

You don’t HAVE to feel a certain way just because of your age. If you look great in it, then a big thumbs up.

Honestly, I don’t wear a lot of shalwar kameez’s, but Élan is something that is right up my alley. I can totally see myself wearing a lot of the silk kurtas. I love Elan’s cuts, which are simple, chic, flattering and always look fabulous.

WHAT’S YOUR PERSONAL AESTHETIC?

My style can be described as easy breezy. I never want to be a slave to fashion, but I confess I keep myself apprised of new trends, and on quick shopping trips, I see what works for me and what doesn’t. I love natural fabrics, both colourful and solid tones and clean lines.

WHAT ARE YOUR STYLE PREFERENCES FOR AN EVENING OUT?

I believe cuts and fabrics are everything. Looking chic is important, but it has to be coupled with comfort.So for an evening out, I prefer silks, both eastern and western silhouettes, even a kaftan! These days, wedges are my go-to choice of footwear.

HOW HAS YOUR STYLE EVOLVED AS YOU HAVE GROWN OLDER?

I’m less inclined to experiment now. Age and body appropriate elegance is so important.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN DRESSING FOR ONE’S AGE?

There’s a time for everything…

WHERE DO YOU SEE THE ÉLAN UNSTITCHED SILK RANGE FITTING IN YOUR WARDROBE?

Elan’s new silk unstitched collection is just WOW!!! I can see myself wear at home and on travels in my own style.
