A few posts ago I mentioned that I would like to start incorporating more of my Indian (and other non-Western) clothing into my regular rotation. Kurtas/Tunics with jeans that's easy and pretty common but wear my billowy shalwaar pants to work, that was a bit more intimidating. I turned to one of my favourite blogs for inspiration. WearAbout is for Indian street style what The Sartorialist is for New York.
Grey Alfred Sung Blazer: Zellers || Black T-Shirt: Joe Fresh || White Shalwaar Pants: Karachi, Pakistan || Black Wedge Heels: Bata || Red Bracelet: Dollar Store || Red Earring as Brooch: Gift from Sana and David || Earrings: Previously loved by my grandmother and mom
I'm actually quite happy with how this look came together, and even if it looks a little unusual the best part was the walk to work when two different shop keepers noticed the pants. One gave me a thumbs up. Another shouted "Aray wah! Shalwaar paynee hey? Achi bhaat hey." Roughly translated "Oh wow! You're wearing shalwaar pants? Good job."
