Style evolves with experimentation, says Yami Gautam

Mumbai: Actress Yami Gautam says there were times when she ended up making fashion mistakes, but she feels one’s sensibility evolves with more experimentation with style.

“In current times, there is no dearth of fashion experts, stylists and clothing brands, but when it comes to fashion the only thing that matters is the comfort factor,” Yami told IANS via email.

“One should know their body type well to experiment with trends. When I look back at my past mistakes, I realise that there were times when I wasn’t myself and that’s why certain styles did not work well for me. It’s a learning process, and by experimenting with your style, one keeps evolving it,” she added.

The “Vicky Donor” actress walked the ramp here for KALKI, a Mumbai-based fashion house on the final day of Bombay Times Fashion Week 2018 on Sunday.

The brand unveiled its exclusive runway collection Spring-Summer 2018. The fashion show saw the presence of small screen celebrities like Pankhuri Awasthy, Pooja Bannerjee, Tanaz Irani, Tanya Sharma and Mrunal Thakur.

On her favourite fashion trends, Yami said she loves feminine soft shades for the summer season.

“I like pastels and bright hues too. I like summer dresses and tank tops. I think they never go out of style. As much as I’m happy with western wear for red carpet and social dos, I also like Indian ethnic wear for special occasions. I am very fond of sports wear and I shop for it online most of the time since I’m always on the move,” she said.

What are the must-haves in her daily beauty regime?

“When I leave my home, I make sure I have a lip-balm, hand sanitiser and some face tissues in my bag,” she said.
