No matter how much I love experimenting with bold colors, I keep coming back to neutral shades every now and then. Recently this particular monochrome stripe dress from Raaika caught my eyes while surfing the net. This one came with a belt, but I ditched it as it was on the wrong place and kinda made me look even more petite. I really love the fact how shirt dresses work for just about any occasion. This one, for example can be worn to work with statement earrings as a sleek office wear or dressed down for a casual look. Also, you get to play with layering by pairing it over a basic outfit to level up the look.
Coming to the brand Raaika, it's a brand new label based at Kolkata catering to the fashion-conscious, independent woman who wants to look good, feel great and have fun with her look. Their pieces are stylish yet sufficiently casual with super unique design and is sure to add flair to your look book. I was really happy with the products I received from them and would definitely recommend you'll to check it out.
I have kept things simple and worn the shirt dress casually with a pair of white sneakers. To break the monotony I have added a turquoise bag which has a huge pink pom pom attached to it. I was so dead tired with another shoot before this one that we ended up taking some shots in McDonald's and a few nearby a local hawker's magazine stall. And, yes I was checking myself out in Cosmopolitan throughout the shoot. :P
