Clothes are a reflection of who we are: they tell the world our story at one glance, and express our identity and way of life. The professional sphere - where the definition of what’s appropriate is often quite narrow - can sometimes constrain self-expression.  However, there are certain prints and patterns that can suit every formal work-related occasion or mood, from a board meeting to a brainstorming session.

Here are some tips from the house of Wills Lifestyle wherein they suggest the modern women today, to team up different prints, embroidery and techniques from different parts of the country and give your clothes a fusion twist. Use Indian prints like paisley, ajrak, bagru, Gujarati embroidery and more, a modern touch.

Ideal for work or a get-together with friends, pairing a beautifully embroidered blouse or a paisley shirt with a mustard yellow, or ivory trouser or skirt will elevate your look to give it a classier finish. 

Trouser/ Skirt

Many may feel conscious to wear printed garments. But this certainly is something that we can help with. Add a sophisticated touch by dressing yourself in paisley printed pant or skirt along with a plain t-shirt or shirt to exude an effortless feel. Don't take it to the next level wherein you team a contrast blouse with the print as that would look too busy that too for a workplace.

Mixing Paisley

While too much of anything spoils the broth, wearing two or more contrasting paisley prints is a look that will work very well together. This can be done by combining a bold print with a much more subtle print piece.

Sweaters and Coats

Wearing a paisley sweater or coat over a muted or solid shirt and trousers will give a bohemian twist to an otherwise formal look, or go for a 100% linen checkered blazer in blue and burnt russet combination, which would be perfect for a date night. Yes, these combinations would work well in the winter season but in the hot weather, we can take a shrug or perhaps wear a sleeveless jumpsuit with subtle paisley prints or any other Indian prints like Ikat, Ajrak, Bagru, Kalamkari and more.

Accessories

Accessories offer a really subtle way to incorporate a print into your look. Whether it’s peppering socks, a printed scarf or a tie, the iconic droplet-inspired design will instantly update a look with colourful detail. You could also wear some kalamkari print jewellery which is easily available in the market and online these days. They look different, stand out and grab eyeballs for the cool finish they give to your simplest of outfits.

Footwear

These days you even get Indian prints on shoes. Team those with your modest outfit. Or team a paisley top with plain pants and printed footwear.
