Discovering A New Side

 

One of the things that got me into blogging, is my love for finding new brands and stores and putting together outfits from my little discoveries. Whether it’s a designer piece or something picked up from the street, I love mixing and matching them all. This post is about one of my latest finds - Covo.

When Covo approached me for a collaboration, to be honest, I did not know much about the brand at all. But on visiting their kiosk in Garuda Mall (Bangalore), I knew I had found my new shopping destination. While I was there, I found it so difficult to narrow down on what I wanted to get, which led me to shopping way more than I had anticipated!

So here I am with my Covo Lookbook, featuring.. well, you’ll see. My first pick was their zipper leggings. I was informed that they are uber comfortable and one of the best selling pairs on Amazon, I only realized it while shooting in it. This pair is seriously something I can live in. My second pick had to be one of the bags. Completely spoiled for choice, I had the toughest time selecting just one. What I particularly loved about the bags here are the intricate detailing. I may be rambling but I honestly love the effort that they put into all the little things (zip, inner lining, etc.) - and that’s what takes the products a notch higher. I saw that they had accessories and I knew I couldn’t leave without adding those to my bag!

This lookbook features two looks styled with Covo, both of which show how perfect these pieces are for my varying moods.

When I think leggings, I think comfortable and effortless and that’s exactly what I’ve gone for here. While wearing short tops with leggings is a strict no-no for me, this particular pair is thick enough to approve of the tied up t-shirt. I am a strong believer of simple, no-fuss dressing and there is no bigger achievement than pulling off an effortless look. One of the key ways is: to accessorize! This chunky necklace is all that the outfit needed to add a little glam and the bag is the perfect addition to dump in all my needs for a long day.  The first outfit is definitely all about a look you can live in.

Floral blouse - Street Shopping, KL | Heels - Steve Madden

The amazing part of the pieces I selected is that it manages to cater to all my ‘let's play dress up’ moods as well. Since the leggings are high waisted, I chose to wear them for a more formal look as well. Just a quick swap into a feminine blouse and heels and I was already halfway there. The bag is absolutely the ideal size - it fits all your belongings and is not too bulky to make it look casual. The earrings added a touch of sparkle and were probably the best addition to the outfit.

While planning the post, I could only visualize an effortless look, and turns out I preferred the dressier look more after the shoot. That is why, never refrain from mixing and matching pieces from your closet. Using the same pieces in multiple ways is my favourite thing to do while styling an outfit because you never know what may surprise you!

A brand that I didn’t know about turned out to be one that I’m so impressed with, be it in terms of variety or quality. Covo is comfortable and practical with no compensation on style. Don’t forget to check out their stuff on Amazon or in Garuda Mall (bangaloreans!)

Have a happy weekend!
