Summer Lookbook | Look 12

While most of the looks that I’ve been curating for the ‘SUMMER LOOKBOOK’ have been day-looks, this time I wanted to go a little bit later in the evening and with just a hint of glam, keeping basic solids in the outfit. The result was this simple, non-fuss black and white look with slivers of grey and shine – an outfit that would be great for a romantic evening with your partner.

It features a classic LBD (Little Black Dress) and white cardi – this time both are from Forever 21 (they are really old pieces I have that have lasted me a long time and I keep coming back to them because they are such evergreen pieces to wear). I paired this with interesting earrings and a slinky diamante necklace and grey-silver bag & shoes. We were actually on a late lunch date at EEST at Westin Gurgaon – they have such great food and you cannot miss their ‘Wasabi Martini’ – it’s my favorite here.

As always, all details of the outfit are towards the end of the blog post so don’t forget to scroll all the way down. Hope you guys enjoy the pics!

    Hey Akansha, I got to this post because of your giveaway but thank god I did. I absolutely love this look for how classy it is. I absolutely love the bag and the shoes and I the way you’ve shot it would’ve definitely bought both if I had the money for it. I like that you’ve gone monochromatic with the clothing. It’s makes a great choice for an eve look. It’s simple but not boring. Love it. Keep it up!

    Hey there. I love this look because:
    1. The grey monochrome is such a classic.
    2. I have the same CL bag, but guess what I purchased if before your lookbook was published. I got it for Rs. 2k and when I saw your lookbook it was for Rs. 1.5k. Such a bummer. A lesson to always let the fashion jnsiders like you post about the sales et al.
    3. I am loving the mules as its transparency adds heaps of length to your never-ending legs.
    4. Those stunning earrings are paired with such elan with a simple jacket and dress adding to the sophisticated vibe.
    5. Just one mini suggestion, if I may – I would have added a mini Makeup drama to add oomph to the look. Say like a winged eyeliner or popping grey tone highlighter. Cheers!

    Effortlessly chic !! The bag is just gorgeous . I’ve been wearing Carlton London footwear for years now but never really like their bags. Seing this one im stunned . Looks like I need to check out their collection ASAP. Your jewellery is stunning, really adds to the whole look. Love the miles as well. Digging how simple this look is. Perfect outfit for a date night .

    Gotta have them layers and you executed this outfit perfectly! Never thought to match a pullover sweater with a dress, but I’m loving it.

    I guess I am absolutely in love with this summer glam look of yours! A classic LBD (Little Black Dress) paired with a white cardi is a timeless elegant combination. In addition to that, your earrings and slinky diamante necklace and grey-silver bag & shoes has added to the glam factor. This look is sexy yet powerful!

    Hey Akansha!!!
    I have been following your blogs since a very long time.

    I loved the dress paired with a white jacket it is perfectly suiting on your face and body structure.

    The earings could have looked more better if you had tied youe hair with a bun!!! Or if you wanted to keep your hair open the earings should have been selected which is long like a tassel!!!!

    Heels is perfectly suiting on the outfit you have selected!!
