Back to Mono|Face of the Month|New Monthly Series- Part 1

Hello everyone,

This post was something that was in my  mind from a few months but for some or the other reason, it wasn’t getting executed. Finally when my friend’s sister agreed to help me with it, I was more than happy to work on it right away. You must be wondering what I’m talking about right???

Well, I have decided to start a monthly series called “FACE OF THE MONTH”, where I would be featuring street style fashion from regular working women and men, bloggers and even the gorgeous home makers from all over the country. I do not know if I can convince people to pose for me every month but I would try my best to get this series successful as much as possible.

So, the FACE OF THE MONTH for May is ARPITHA RAM, who is a software engineer in an IT firm in Bangalore and looks gorgeous in both Indian and western outfits and was so awesome to work with during the entire shoot. I wanted her to be in utmost comfort in the outfits I styled for her and hence, went for easy summer looks that can be worn to office and casual brunch events with your friends and family.

The first look is appropriate for all office goers and is the perfect combination of monochrome patterns. I asked Arpitha to take her most comfiest long kurti out along with a Palazzo. Palazzos are great to be paired with long and short kurtis/kurtas and can also be styled with so many other variants like crop tops, regular tees or even a nice off shoulder top. Since it was a Work Look, a white cotton kurti was the best option. You might ask, why Black for Summers? Well, if you choose the right summer fabric,like in this case it was cotton, I think even black can be soothing to your skin and since most of us stay in the air conditioned office, colors aren’t much of a worry. Plus, according to me, black is a color that can make anyone look chic yet professional.2016-04-25_00.05.27

Just to give it a bit of Indo-Western look, the outfit was styled with a crop jacket which had the same monochrome pattern to it. Being a very comfortable, yet stylish look, we went for flats instead of heels and added some pretty Jhumkas and silver and red bangles and little BINDI for some Indian touch to it. The right accessories can amp up your MONOCHROME LOOK to a different level. The plain and simple black and white combo can be quite experimental if you play with your accessories from jewellery to footwear to even the handbags you carry. And don’t forget to put on some red lips and guess what, even your office look would be talked about among your colleagues and you will certainly look unique and well-groomed.2016-04-24_22.54.47

This was the first look, I styled for her with minimal makeup and the PART 2 of it will be live tomorrow.  The look is super simple and would look good on anyone with any kind of body type. You can even experiment with other monochrome colors like blue and pink, yellow and pink and so many more. If anyone of you is interested to be featured on the blog for the “Face of the Month” series, both men and women, please do email me at “thattripeurbanlife@gmail.com” with the subject line as FACE OF THE MONTH and I shall be more than happy to welcome you to my blogging family.
