spring style: day 2/10 combining the #10x10challenge and #onedressthirtyways – how to style a capsule wardrobe

How to Style the Mustard Trend for WorkArati Devasher yellow scarf

Day 2 of 10… featuring the Peaceful Paisleys silk scarf, with its pastel colours which are perfect for spring. Styling the longline shirt as an actual shirt with a basic pencil skirt, classic heels and a light fitted linen blazer, it’s a formal look without the “I’m in a full corporate suit” vibe. I don’t work in an office, so when Continue reading


spring style: how to style a capsule wardrobe – combining the #10x10challenge and #onedressthirtyways

How to Style the Mustard Trend for WorkArati Devasher yellow scarf

This month, I’m taking on a challenge… it’s a combination of two separate challenges, to be honest. And I’m so excited about sharing it with you!

The first part of the challenge is inspired by the 10 x 10 Challenge™, created by Lee of StyleBee … and involves choosing  a micro-wardrobe comprising 10 items of clothing and wearing them in different combinations over 10 days. 10 x 10, get it?

My second inspiration is Megan Auman and her One Dress Thirty Ways – she styled the same wrap dress 30 different ways in January of 2018, and she is reprising it with a different dress in April 2018.

So, wanting to do both these and not having that much time to devote to it, I will be styling  Continue reading

How to Style the Mustard Trend for WorkArati Devasher yellow scarf

The mustard trend – love it or hate it? Personally, I love yellow in any shape or form, and am delighted to see that it’s back in fashion, particularly for Spring 2018, worn both on and off the runway by celebrities and common folk alike. Here in London, though, it’s cold, windy and still very much winter. The daffodils are out already, though, so don’t hesitate to add some mustard to Continue reading


winter style: 7 ways to wear a silk scarf with a jumper dress

winter style: 7 ways to wear a scarf with a jumper dress | arati devasher painted silk accessories, london

On days when I don’t know what to wear, I automatically reach for a jumper dress. This burgundy jumper dress from .Object with the fun frills on the cuffs is my current favourite. I’ve paired it with comfy but stylish wedge heel knee boots from M&S.

What makes the outfit stand out, however, is the way the Sunset Waters silk scarf can be styled with it in several different ways. This would be a great combination to wear to a winter wedding (or dare I say it so soon – a Valentine’s day date) yet it’s also appropriate to wear to work.

I made this one-of-a-kind pure silk scarf in a traditional Continue reading
