Every now and then we like to take inspiration from fashion divas, who always teach us a thing or two about style. This time our spotlight was on Sharmistha Biswas
of The Bong Ass fashion blog and we had a tonne of fun talking to this gorgeous fashionista. Her blog showcases her individual style and take on fashion, which is no short of fabulous.
Shopcade HQ (SHQ): Describe your style.
Sharmistha Biswas (SB): I would like to sum up my blog in just one word: comfort. Curating street-style whilst taking cue from runway trends for women on the move with real lives and concrete duties is something I enjoy doing.
SHQ: What is the story behind your blog name?
SB: The idea was to capture the attention of my audience! I wanted people to remember and come back to my blog hence the quirky title.
The BongAss stands for -The Bengali Attitude Style and Statement, giving away much about who I am and what my blog has in store for my readers. The Bongass is not just a fashion blog but also a journal of stories told via pictures.
SHQ: How do you style your denims?
SB: Every woman has as a certain predominant style statement despite the ever changing trends but there is one trend I swear by and that is -- the distressed denim. The distressed denim has a democratic appeal in its style due to its versatility. It can be styled in numerous ways:
1: Blaze it up
In this look I have worn a graphic tee with a cape blazer and paired it with the distressed denim. To finish the look I have worn the classic red heels.
2. The classic white button down shirt
Nothing looks more chic than a classic white button down shirt and distressed denim. I have added pop of colour by coordinating a colourful choker and sling bag.
3. The oversized sweatshirt
Stealing your boyfriend's wardrobe has never been this cool! The oversized ensemble screams sporty chic.
Yes, Sharmistha, we agree!
