4 Offbeat Styling Ideas To Count On…Featuring Quirky Bags

4 Offbeat Styling Ideas To Count On…Featuring Quirky Bags

Unconventional styling is not something many women try often. Either they’re afraid to do something that doesn’t suit their vibe or they do not know how to go about it. If you fall into this category, where you’re skeptical of sporting something that’s slightly offbeat, here’s a tip — no matter what your sartorial element is, the right styling can get you looking fabulous. To prove this point, WODROB’s curated The Bag Edit. We’ve got you four stylish looks, using quirky bags as the key element, that you can easily try out on a daily basis. Check out these styles and look your best.
The bags used in the entire editorial are from Indian label All2Defy.

 Pleated pride

If you’re not afraid to sport a funky look with bright colours, then this look is for you. We’ve picked an accordion pleated skirt in tangerine for this look. Pair this fiery hue with the blue checked shirt to achieve a foolproof colour combination. We always encourage mixing prints together in an outfit and also silhouettes with prints. The accordion pleats serve as stripes, hence look perfect when paired with checks. We’ve added this green backpack for an edgy vibe. Amp up your makeup with a purple glittery pout and go for a half top-knot in the hair department. Finish off the look with a pair of red block heels that you can team up with white ankle socks.

Reinvented 6 yards

Team up a black mesh crop top and black leggings with a sari. We picked up this ash grey sari and tucked it in at the waist, wrapping the pallu around the neck. To add a spin to this look, we threw a pair of red pointed-toe boots and radiant mirrored sunglasses. A cobalt blue backpack adds to the offbeat aura of this look. Keep the makeup minimal and opt for a red lippie and sleek hairdo to let the outfit and accessories do all the talking.

Casually brimmed

If you’re on trend, you’ll know that Baker Boy hats are now officially a fad. For this look, we opted for a white off-the-shoulder top and teamed it up with maroon wide-legged trousers. To accessorise, we threw a trending Baker Boy hat in glen plaid and a black rhombus backpack. We’ve added a simple pair of black block-heeled pumps. Take the look up a notch by trying the two-toned lips. Here we went in for orange and purple lips and added a winged liner as well. This chic street style-inspired look is perfect to wear to college.

All about fusion

Fusion looks are our favourite because you get to have the best of both worlds. A white Chikankari kurta is a versatile Indian piece that can be styled not only in an Indian outfit but also in an Indo-Western ensemble. We put it together with a pair of Ikat-printed blue pants. This mini backpack in orange and blue complements the white and blue outfit. A pair of black chunky heeled brogues were added to give off that fusion vibe. You can keep the makeup minimal if you wish to. But if you’re feeling a little experimental then try the two-toned graphic eyeliner like we did. We also went in for a faux mohawk double ponytail to complete this look.
