I am highly inspired by ‘Vintage’ or ‘Retro’ form of styling from previous era. It is something which most of the designers have experimented and Hollywood has a major contribution of re-introducing it to society. When we call something ‘Vintage style’, it actually means – Exclusive form of dressing during 1920’s to 1960’s.
Who can forget perfect vintage example, authentic 50’s Chanel chain handbag.
“Vintage [clothing] is not only glorious and stylish, it’s also the way forward in terms of recycling. Whenever I go into great vintage stores, I wonder why we ever buy new things.” – Thandie Newton
I have realized Vintage clothes has something for everyone and it is really full of great fabric work. Colors and items are very attractive and catch a lot attention by people. I usually try mix & match way for styling and keeping only one item Vintage at a time, else it looks excessive of retro.
Today I have created Vintage formal look by wearing this 1960’s look jacket and matched it up with straight (not pencil) skirt. I chose mix of black and grey as they are one of the most favorite color among all vintage clothing line. Best thing about them is, they never go out of style. I took the trend of shoes little back by matching this DKNY Bow shaped pump. They have 3inch comfortable heels and can be easily worn for 8 hrs at office, which again supported my formal look. I used simple diamond stud and no other jewellery, keeping it bare minimum.
You can purchase some of the best Vintage style clothes at Shopbop.

Great weekend !!
So I am back with Look 2 from my Passage to India series (Checkout Look 1 here).
My husband has a personal view that I compliment Indian outfit much better than western, so here is my second look in Indian outfits.
Coming back to outfit, I simply love this beautiful Nehru collar kurti with little embroidery and touch of green. I used mint green nail paint and mint green ring to bring instant summer look. Don’t you think Indian dresses are very pretty and traditional. It is elegant yet chick. Hope you all enjoyed my attempt.

Above quote totally justify my look in this old collection of dress. Indian kurti & churidar is one of the best casual form of dressing that exists in India, Pakistan and in Middle East. Designers use embroidary & lace to generate most of the fashionable addition in these Indian wears.

I am glad that finally I got a chance to present my black pleated skirt in front of you all. Elegant-yet-stylish piece of dress to carry. Although I am not feeling very well but still I pleaded to go-out, just to refresh my mood. DKD took me to Brickworks Forest which has amazingly beautiful heart-throb scene to capture.
I have realised that ‘Red’ is coming out to be my favourite colour and most of the time I find something of red in my styles.
This sunglass is one my newest purchase from Gucci and it has wonderful curves at the corner.
Do you love accessories, I simply do as they are one of the things which can make your simple outfit look so chic and classy. So always purchase best accessories and combine it with any basic dress in your wardrobe.
Black purse is something which is found in every girl’s closet. I find it very handy to pick for my regular office days.
Hope you all liked my attempt.
I am all open to hear your idea of styling pleated skirt.

Thank you so much for reading my post.
First of all, I would like to thank everyone for providing their wonderful support. As a fashion blogger, I consider this as my first official style-post for Pink Jasmine Styling. Seriously speaking, posing at -8 degree without any woolens was deadly experience since photo-shoot went for some time and my smile was freezed.
Last week, I bought my blue pumps and beautiful piece of earring and I was really confused how to best use them and at the same time look stylish.
