Rohit Bal’s grey, fitted waistcoat jacket makes perfect wear for a boardroom battle. The crinkled yoke, in olive, adds the necessary flair to make everyone sit up and pay attention. A simple black bolero jacket from Abraham and Thakore (left) gets a bold update when lined with white edging and paired with a white/black outfit. The ensemble pairs this season’s hottest hues—ebony and ivory—with the coming season’s trends.
Heading to a party after work? Don’t miss Cue’s cropped jacket with silver overtones. “A jacket with a diffused sheen works whether in or out of the office. With the colour palette for the coming season veering towards dark hues, a touch of silver-grey adds a spark of individuality to any wardrobe—official or otherwise,” says Rohit Gandhi of Cue. Hot tip: Three-quarter length sleeves are in, as are puff sleeves.
Coats to go
Perhaps a bit too heavy for Indian summers, these options, nevertheless, make perfect sense for that business trip to London. No sense in losing style points abroad. For the ideal spring look, opt for this bright, flowered feminine coat designed by Puja Arya (right). For colder climes, wrap up in this woollen double-breasted mid-thigh-length coat designed for Wills Lifestyle by the king of minimalism, Rajesh Pratap Singh (left). Oh! and don’t forget to add that touch of glam to your working coat with white stilletoes.
