One piece three ways: Sanam Chaudhri

Three fashionistas showing us how to put together an item from a designers collection

March 27, 2016

While trends fade, style remains eternal and one piece can be put together in many different ways. In this feature we have three fashionistas showing us how to put together an item from a designers collection, according to their own individual style and taste!

What designer Sanam Chaudhri enjoys most about this wrap is that “along with making one look glamorous, it is also extremely comfortable to wear.” It is primarily made using embossed boski silk, and is embellished using dabka and nakshi kantha embroidery. The silk is mellifluous and lustrous, and the intricate work of the gold zari gives it a luxurious touch. The vibrant colour and lightweight material makes the piece extremely versatile and easy to wear day or night.

I loved the Sanam Chaudhri wrap because it has a very glam feel to it, but at the same time it is very versatile and cool. I paired it with a pair of J Brand blue jeans with a black tank top underneath, my black YSL tributes, and for final touches, a fabulous pair of gold statement Outhouse earrings, which complemented the gold embroidery in the wrap. What I love about my look is that even though the wrap is glamorous, the jeans and the tank top make it laid-back and cool, especially when I added the funky accessories. I kept my hair in soft waves, did a soft taupe eye with lots of mascara, and put on a deep pink glossy lip to keep the makeup soft, which ties in with the casual look I tried to achieve. I would wear this outfit to a casual dinner with friends or a glamorous get-together.

I wore this wrap with tailored white pants from Zara and a pair of gold Christian Louboutin heels. Since the reddish hue of the wrap is rich, I tried to keep the accessories on the minimal side, wearing only a pair of diamond and pearl earrings. This is reflected in my personal style as well, as I am someone who prefers a classic and elegant look. For my make-up, I used bright red lipstick, which I think goes with everything, and classic winged eyeliner. I then chose a soft blow-dry to complement my ensemble. I think this makes a perfect outfit to wear to a daytime lunch or brunch.

I wore this stunning wrap with black silk tailored pants. I then accessorised using a gold Outhouse bracelet, Christian Dior heels, and my every-day jewellery, which includes a pair of solitaire earrings, and a leather strap watch with gold hardware. Keeping in mind that I was trying to create a classic evening look, for my make-up I applied red lipstick because I always wear red at night, some gold and beige bronze eye shadow and a light pink blush. I am a full-time mother, and I have found that my naturally straight hair pulled back with a hairband is a convenient look to do. It has become my go-to hairstyle when I am in a hurry, because it is very quick yet it looks elegant and classy. I would wear this outfit for dinner with my friends, or to an evening tea.
