I love brunches, specially the ones by an inviting pool. Frankly, what’s there to not love about it? Great food, sparkling champagne and some foot tapping music, not to forget catching up with friends in a laid back, relaxed atmosphere.
But ‘laid back’ doesn’t mean a clumsy appearance. It also does not necessarily translate into the predictable denim. So on Saturday, I styled a shoot on brunch wear (see pic gallery above).
Here’s the behind- the- scenes video, showing what went into the styling of the shoot.
And now, deconstructing the looks:
I gave model Neesha a cutesy white Forever New playsuit and tie up Roman sandals from our very own private brand Dressberry to go with it. She wore a gorgeous chunky turquoise necklace from Ivory Tag and a multi coloured broad belt from Pieces to add a bit of colour to the look. Since it was a simple playsuit, we decided to style her hair in a messy braid and use a dainty Estelle hair clip to accessorise her hair. The make was was kept fresh, dewy ad soft with a tinge of eyeliner and a hint of lip gloss.
For the second look, I picked a lovely waterfall hemline dress from Dressberry (you will soon find it on Myntra), and moss green heels from Dressberry. Stacked bangles, a mammoth glossy red one from Myntra and some multi-hued ones from Toniq along with a quirky owl ring from Myntra were the only jewellery she wore, since the dress came with a busy cage print. And, I picked an adorable orange bag from Baggit to complete her look.
The hair was styled in loose curls and we gave her a matte red mouth for a dressier look.
Iqbal wore an ombre dyed shirt paired with denim bermudas, both from Roadster, our private brand. Along with it, there was a tan coloured Lino Perros belt, a cross body bag from US Polo Assn. and crimson Alberto Torresi loafers. We gave him a key pendant from Ayesha were his only accessories. The hair was kept slick with minimal products and a bit of styling.
A navy graphic printed tee from Wrangler worn with a pair of white linen anti fit trousers from Arrow. I picked a really cool pair of tan gladiators from 1977 and a grungy neckpiece from Ayesha. As for the hair, there were a fringe or two framing his face.
White is the preferred colour for brunches across the world, but you can add a pop of colour for sure. Go ahead and be experimental. But remember to keep it casual yet chic.
All four looks were kept fuss free, easy to put together, and most importantly, effortless, because you don’t want to look too dressed up for the brunch.
So off you go to that fancy brunch and rock it like never before!
