There’s something about a great power-suit or a chic dress that add the perfect amount of chic, confidence and character to the one wearing it. For long, formal wear was worn only on special occasions but now, they can be styled up or down, worn casually or for bigger events as well. Our featured guests today, Chubasenla Jamir and Kikruneinuo from Nagaland make formal-wear the hero of their wardrobe, styling them from various occasions and event, and combining them with street wear for the uber-chic look.
“Whatever we wear, if we wear it with confidence, it’s fashion. If I am not confident or happy with my look or my outfits, I’m never going to feel as fashionable as possible. Wearing clothes that play up our best style strengths will always look trendy no matter what is trending,” says Chubasenla. Get to know why formals are becoming girl’s best friend!

Tell us a little bit about yourself to start things off.
Hello, our names are Kikruneinuo and Chubasenla Jamir, currently studying. We love dressing up for the occasions. To be honest, we are that type of girls who put up anything from the wardrobe and run off the day. Can’t really believe we will be talking about fashion today, but well let’s get started.
What is it about the formal-wear trend that you love?
First thing first “comfort”. It goes out with all kinds of events and occasions and coming from a place where there are tons of events the year round, basically one’s adoration for formals is inevitable because it accompanies you most days of the year. Also, a well-dressed woman with a good style will always look nicely out together.

Some thoughts on your favorite formal apparels.
Chuba says, “ Talking about my favorite apparel when it comes to formals, there are plenty I could list out. But if I have to choose my the top favorites, then I would go for two piece outfit in pastel colors, dresses with ruffles, tiered dresses.”
“My favorite apparel will always be a plain oversized shirt and black pants. I can never get over it, it’s just so comfortable. A blazer with a high waist skirt is also one of my favourite. When you know you’re well dressed and you’re comfortable with what you’re wearing you get the confident automatically and I know it’s very important to be confident in yourself,” says Kikruneinuo.
With the growing increase in street fashion, do you think this trend on formals will ever go out?
Definitely not! In fact combining street fashion with formals creates a perfect outfit. The pairing you’ll see is somewhat out of the ordinary and brings together two different styles. But at the end of the day, it’s an individual’s choice to dress up the way they want to. Besides, it’s all about being comfortable in what you wear and love yourself for it.

“I honestly don’t have a favorite, I love all. I always try my best to put up my best in whatever occasion it maybe.”
It’s all about showing off for the big-day for Chubasenla, “Formal events obviously – Weddings, dinners etc. If there is a big day ahead of you then why not wear formals. We won’t be able to help ourselves from getting out and showing off.”

Making an effort to dress well is important because it reflects your personality and who you are. Experiment with different styles and colors.
