I know! I know! What you must be thinking, what is up with this girl! How is she pulling off a beanie in a warm city like Mumbai! Well, here is what happened. While cleaning up my closet, I came across all these things I have not worn in a long time. Things I loved once and bought without thinking twice. When I got to Mumbai they just took a back seat because ‘weather’. But this time finally the city allowed using some layering pieces for the cooler months. The opportunist that I am, I made the most of it.
Usually there is always this one thing you know you want to wear no matter what and you plan your outfit around it. Very evidently it was the beanie for me this time. I just wanted to work it into whatever I was wearing. So I did.
I picked slightly softer hued and textured pieces, so that focus was on my beloved beanie. A classic denim jacket, black skinny jeans, white tee and black converse; I had my outfit of the day. You can try this sort of outfit out and just replace the denim jacket, for a moto jacket night look or plaid shirt for the day and when it is slightly warm. If you want an unconventional beanie look, try it out with a structured blazer, it will look very chic.
By the way the way these shots were taken was pretty much a fun story in itself. We went to this corner of this marvelous city, where taking pictures is strictly prohibited; except for this one corner as was told to us. Still, every time a guard would pass by I had my heart pumping louder and louder. Once we got some decent shots, we took off at the speed of light. It was exciting though!
Anyways, hope my beanie and my silly city adventure brought a smile to your face.
