I’m a new mother and as a con­se­quence, I have no time for any­thing, es­pe­cially to think about pulling an out­fit to­gether. But a new baby also means lots of visi­tors and I would at least like to look pre­sentable. Can you share some tips on putting to­gether sim­ple com­bi­na­tions that don’t re­quire too much thought or time?

— Neeta Ya­dav, Bar­oda

Con­grat­u­la­tions to you and your fam­ily for your baby. The com­bi­na­tion of sim­ple and fuss-free dress­ing is what you need to fol­low for the next few gru­el­ing months. Leg­gings are the eas­i­est op­tion, yet trendy and to­tally in fash­ion when paired with an over­sized sweat­shirt and logo print can­vas slid­ers. For a more dressed up look, opt for lacy palazzo pants or long tu­nics that are flat­ter­ing but still cover all the areas that you want. En­joy this phase, be com­fort­able but also ef­fort­lessly stylish.

I’m plan­ning a trip to Morocco next month. Could you please give me some ad­vice on what to pack?

Firstly, keep in mind that Moro­coo, though lib­eral in cer­tain areas, is also con­ser­va­tive in cer­tain parts. So while walk­ing around the bazaars, souks and sight­see­ing, I would rec­om­mend be­ing slightly con­ser­va­tive. A scarf is the best travel ac­ces­sory. It can be used to cover your hair while vis­it­ing a mosque, can also be wrapped around your head to shield you from the sun, or wrapped around your shoul­ders when the tem­per­a­ture drops in the evening. Flow­ing en­sem­bles like kaf­tans, an­kle-length skirts, dresses or pants will re­spect the coun­try’s dress code and yet keep you com­fort­able.

I’m ob­sessed with the print on print trend. How­ever, are there any dos and don’ts to keep in mind when pair­ing prints? And how much is too much?

— Nimisha Jain, Pune

How much is too much de­pends en­tirely on you. If you are con­fi­dent, walk like you own the room and there’s no stop­ping you - you can lit­er­ally pull any­thing off! The num­ber one rule is to make your own rules, en­joy fash­ion and em­brace it. Per­son­ally, I love bold colours and flo­ral prints. But then one must not add more to the over­all look. Keep it sim­ple with nude heels; slick, straight hair or a high knot and let the out­fit do the talk­ing.
