Back in our junior school days, we’d be given essays to write on “My Favourite Season” and I remember how winter would come easy to me simply because it was my birthday month. Funny how the innocent, infant mind functions. There was no other reason to prefer winter as a season, really.
As a Bengali kid, I’d always have to bear the brunt of an overprotective parent trying to cover me up with all kinds of woollens – sweaters, cardigans, scarves, socks, and only sometimes, Bengal’s all time favourite, monkey caps! Even though mum always made sure I looked cute and fashionable, it is quite off-putting now as it was then, to bury myself into tons of winter wear looking like a bear suffering from gluttony.
Therefore, this winter I wanted to reach out to all those people who have always disliked wearing a zillion layers of clothing to beat the chills. So I decided to mix and match a few outfits from my wardrobe to style three solid looks.
