City Style – The Classy Delhiwalla, Kasturba Gandhi Marg
Searching for the stylish.
[Text and picture by Mayank Austen Soofi]
One summer morning while walking down Kasturba Gandhi Marg in Connaught Place, The Delhi Walla was struck by this woman’s appearance. Amid a blur of tight jeans and salwars (no saree though), her blowy jungle-green harem pants stood out as a more sensible hot-day wear. The black colour of her loose cotton kurta, however, seemed odd if beating heat was the intention. The consolation was that it matched with the black print on her pants, which was of handloom silk. More harmonious was the pants’ spotty golden zari work that echoed noiselessly in the woman’s accessories (earrings, bangles, chappals are not clearly visible in the picture above), all of which were in varying shades of the gold. If only she were not this thin, her elegance would have been less Elle-ish, and more real.
