If you’re a fan of the classic school of fashion, and your best friends comprise of the LBD, the white blouse and a tan tote, you should have a look at Mahi’s fun fashion blog. Her style is a modern take on the classic aesthetic, with versatile pieces like dresses, palazzos and denim worn in her own fashionable taste. We had a quick chat with her about her style, and also asked for tip! Read on.

Q. How would you describe your personal style?

A. I believe being fashionable is not just about standing out, but also being remembered! Fashion as a whole has always been a repetition of ideas through the eras, but what makes it new each time is the way you reinvent it with your own style.

Q. If you could shop any celebrity’s closet, who would it be and why?

A. That's a really tricky one, but I think it would be everything from Kareena Kapoor’s! She’s just so effortless – the trait of a true diva. She never goes wrong with her style, whether a casual denim-tee outfit off screen or full glam on the red carpet! She's definitely my style icon.

Q. According to you, what is a creative way to wear print on print?

A. I’d say space your prints well to keep the look balanced, meaning if your top has a crowded print, make sure your bottom has a print that’s spacey. Next, layer in neutral coloured clothes and accessories so it doesn’t get busy. For instance, if you have to style a leopard print, graphic prints like polka dots and stripes complement its natural shape well.
