Being great at your job is essential but so is looking great and feeling comfortable. So for all you boss ladies, here are some tips that will never go out of fashion!
A woman is never sexier than when she is comfortable in her clothes – Vera Wang. In my opinion, this quote has always been relatable.
I love my job and I’m so glad I get to do something I enjoy every day. And while playing dress up might be every girl’s dream, it sure does get hard at times because aside from having to be on my toes and attend several events, I have to also figure out the answer to the eternal question of “What to wear?”
Dressing well and looking presentable is so important, but so is being comfortable because that’s what ultimately makes you feel confident. And in my case, it takes a dream team, whom I refer to as my personal squad, to put together a great look for every single event and appearance. Thanks to my stylist, Rishika Devnani and her team as well as my makeup artist, Swati Das, I am able to look my best every day!
Now considering I’m privy to all of the behind-the-scenes discussions that have allowed me to pick up a few things over the years, I have decided to put together a few style tips that have helped me bring my A-game, style-wise, every time.
Opt for classic formal outfits and make them stylish by accessorising with a belt or jewellery. A plain outfit can be jazzed up with an interesting pair of shoes.
If you choose to wear heels, make sure they’re comfortable, especially if you have a job that involves a lot of running around.
You can mix casual elements like T-shirts and sneakers with formal wear, or pair a tee with a knee-length skirt/high-waisted shorts. You can also choose to pair dress sneakers with a suit and make it more comfortable and stylish.
Don’t be afraid to play around with colour! It brightens up a simple formal outfit and makes it look more stylish and makes you more approachable.
If you love Indo-western wear, pair a kurta with types of denim. Even a casual Indian kurta pantsuit is eternally comfortable and gives off super boss lady vibes!
Other must-try styles include coloured/checkered blazer with skirts, shorts, culottes or pants; blazer dresses; denims with a nice white or coloured shirt; straight wide leg pants with a casual top; shirts under dresses or jumpsuits.
Pro tip: While it’s good to experiment with styles, I personally believe in comfort first. Always choose comfortable, fuss-free clothing and make sure the fabrics of your garment are breathable.
I usually like fuss-free hairstyles like a ponytail, braid, top knot, straight or wavy hair.
When it comes to makeup, I like to keep it natural and neutral. It is the best and on-the-go but if you want to jazz it up you can play around with winged eyeliner or a fun lipstick should do the trick!
I hope you all were able to take a few pointers from this but at the end of the day, dress what suits your style and body type the best!

As a mother, Neha had always been there for her daughter. Why couldn't her daughter be there for her when Neha needed someone to talk to?
Neha was having severe problems with her periods. Her periods were highly irregular.
Once they had stopped altogether for 8 months after a long period of three years of hot flashes, and she was hopeful that her menopause had arrived. But presumably not so! She had heavier than usual period soon after.
These intermittent on-and-off intervals of period puzzled her a lot. Not that she hadn’t shown to the gynaecologists, but the prolonged period of menopause was very irritating and difficult.
