An exclusive autumn street-style mood board with Arpita Sinha
Street style that gained momentum in the 1990s with styles that defined casual and cool is back on the trend-o-meter but with a slight shift in the sensibilities of the urban youth. It is no longer just about acid-wash jeans, sneakers and graphic tees. The contemporary street style is smart, structured, quirky and classy with a subtle hint of casual in appearance. From the classic A-line flared skater skirts to the contemporary favourite coords, street style has evolved over the years. The Telegraph creates a colourful, contemporary street-style mood board for autumn, with model Arpita Sinha as our muse.
This multicoloured outfit from Forty Four has a vibrant print on silk and satin and is detailed with drawstrings for adjusting it to the desired length. Comfy and colourful, this design is based on the classic Indian street style, accessorised with contemporary accessories from Prism Jewelry.
A classy blend of prints inspired from a Moroccan escapade, pastel shades and smart silhouette made of silk, the coord set from PDS by Sneha exudes a fun vibe as a smart street style with a swish touch.
The solid-colour Amarillo slit cut-out dress from Couche is made of Crepe Lana stretch and is all about comfort wrapped in a luxury fabric and a modern silhouette. The scarf to tame the hair and Just Cavalli watch from SH Mumtazuddin Times add a boho-chic touch to the street-wear look.
Bringing together the classic shades of black and white, the modal satin jacket dress from Mehek Talreja is designed with a contemporary quirky print and vintage fringes along the sleeves. The smart and quirky street style with a classic touch is accessorised with jewellery from Michelle Alexander.
Arpita channels a chic look in this printed pant, organza overlay top and printed organza jacket from Studio Radical, inspired by calligraphy text. The street style inspired by amalgamating two trends — sheer fabrics and layering — is accessorised with jewellery from Divinus Creations. The roadside parked Vespa acts as the perfect backdrop for the shot.
For me street style defines easy, effortless yet head-turning. Autumn is the season of contrasts, neon colours, pattern-on-pattern and pop colours. Breezy silhouettes, light fabrics, bright colours make up this chic street-style lookbook — Sumit Sinha, stylist
For Mehek’s outfit, we chose kohl eyes and orange lipstick with a messy bun. Studio Radical’s look was accentuated with coloured liner and semi-nude lips along with a mixed-style hairstyle of classic middle-parting and contemporary low ponytail. The outfit from Forty Four required a touch of vibrant shades in the make-up too, with a messy ponytail. Couche’s look was completed with nude gel eye make-up and soft curls with side front braids — Abhijit Paul, make-up pro
