#CelebrateingtheRainbow at the workplace – share your stories of Pride!
These 5 female entrepreneurs have developed a signature style that is all their own. An interesting look at women business leaders with some great style chops!
The age of serial entrepreneurship is here, and we have much more inspiration to make it big in business now more than ever before. Then again, the way businesses have seen transition over the years is revealed in the way entrepreneurs carry themselves these days.
They are no longer a muddled lot, with nothing except work as their sole vision. They have developed a style story and signature fashion of their own that has rewritten how success in business and fashion can merge together on a forward movement.
Take a look at these top business entrepreneurs who inspire us, with the way they have clubbed clever fashion with great business-making ideas.
This name automatically pops to mind when you think about someone having become successful in the field of business development for women exclusively. Sheroes is one of the largest business ventures in the country, with a 3 million strong, growing audience. The app and website stands as one of the biggest support systems for women around the country.
What inspires the audience more than just the networking and the support available is the way its founder Sairee Chahal, carries herself. The first thing that you see on her are her trademark pair of sneakers. These, she ditches for nothing ever, be it in a board room or a restaurant meet-up.
Chahal takes fitness seriously, and the way she combines classic colour choices with an edgy pair is worth the mention. Even her hair stands for minimalism. What’s best about Chahal’s sense of fashion is her ability to remain minimalist yet unforgettable in the way the final look develops.
Mukherjee has come a long way from her time as a journo-anchor to co-founder of Money Mile. She inspires us with a chirpy sense of fashion that is high on boss-like. Her love for black, navy, and mostly dark shades is evident across all her interviews, shows and appearances. Mukherjee’s motto for her personal style is – neat and in-place. Her hairstyle is to die for, given its prim look and perfect neatness.
One of the biggest names in the leadership coaching niche, Ashu Khanna has a power laced sense of fashion. Be it sarees or suits, her style choices reminds us of maintaining a crisp feel, with attention to one statement accessory; which is usually a classic pearl necklace, a watch or a grungy stole.
Khanna has managed to make ethnic wear on par with the western counterpart of power suits!. Her salt and pepper hair is a symbol of her easy-to-carry, natural personality, without much of a fuss.
The Baby Chakra founder reminds you of the girly enthusiasm that everybody craves for but fails to retain. It is hard to believe that someone with such an amazing background as Saggi could even have such a humble sense of fashion. Mostly seen in casuals, her fashion sense is chic sans any excesses. She also likes to keep her hair short, with no added flair. The fitted blouses and tops, straight-cut denims and pants, and dresses tends to make her the young entrepreneur who makes a statement at work while being down to earth with her style. Saggi specifically favors lighter tones, simple silhouettes and fits.
Mydala, as a business venture, has been around for a long time now; but with MTV DropOut Pvt Ltd, Singh got a wider audience base that appreciated her fashion sense. Even before the show, Singh’s fashion was always about power dressing without being gaudy. Her signature heels and skirts pack a punch, and her choice of colours are usually bright without being edgy. And yes, she loves to wear those trinkets just right.

Can you believe this bloke compelled me to wear only saris - full time at home- till the eighth month of my pregnancy?! The excessive heat coupled with humidity made my life miserable.
Recently when I browsed an interesting post by a fellow author on this very forum I had a sense of déjà vu. She describes the absolutely unnecessary hullabaloo over ladies donning nighties and /or dupatta –less suits.
I wish to narrate how I was in dire straits so far wearing a ‘nightie’ was concerned.
I lived in my ultra orthodox sasural under constant surveillance of two moral guardians (read Taliban) in the shape of the husband’s mom and dad. The mom was unschooled and dim-witted while the dad was a medical practitioner. But he out-Heroded the Herod in orthodoxy.
My supervisor introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As a transwoman navigating the corporate world, I had encountered my fair share of discrimination and challenges. Transitioning without the support of my parents and having limited friendships in my personal life made the journey difficult and lonely. However, when I stepped into the office, something remarkable happened, I left behind the stress and negativity, embracing a space where I could truly be myself.
Joining the marketing team as a graphic designer, I was initially apprehensive about how my colleagues would react to my gender identity. But to my surprise, the atmosphere was welcoming and respectful from day one. My supervisor, Sarah, introduced me as a valuable member of the team, emphasizing my skills and contributions rather than focusing on my gender identity. This simple act set the tone for my experience in the workplace.
As I settled into my role, I discovered that my colleagues went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and included. They consistently used my correct name and pronouns, creating an environment where I could be authentically me. Being an introvert, making friends wasn’t always easy for me, but within this workplace, I found a supportive community that embraced me for who I truly am. The workplace became a haven where I could escape the stresses of my personal life and focus on my professional growth.
