Jennifer Osei

Maximalism is one style trend not meant for  the faint hearted , yet in the mind of the dresser, they are simply – dressed .Is the term ”  Basic is dead” actually true ? or we would just like to stand out by expressing our inner thoughts and individuality in style ?
According to a maximalist dresser  , the world is her runway and every moment is an opportunity to be a star. To say it truthfully ,this is something most execute all too well, as always finds a way to add an element of vavavoom on something as basic as pants and a blazer.
Even with a colour block added to the look, she would add something to elevate her look. whether a wide brim hat, some elaborate jewellery, or sleeves that speak. Its a simple matter of – Go bolder or go home.

 Jennifer Osei
Not widely acceptable is this trend  yet quietly admired ,  according to – Jennifer Osei aka theladyvhodka , who was featured in Vogue India , she had this to say – “I’ve felt like people have been offended by my appearance,” theladyvhodka makes bold style statements wherever she goes .

A mixed print look is not one that can be executed by just about everybody. There are chances of you blundering and ruining this look. The fashion queen has somehow figured out how to work her way around this trend. She adds character to her flare pants, by wearing them in a leopard print, and seamlessly styles this with a snake print top. If you thought that was over the top, try adding a printed bag to the same ensemble.
