Like A Boss: 7 Tips From Our CEO’s Week Of Rethinking Power Dressing!

Your comfort zone isn’t where the magic happens.


As you move along in life, you fall into a pattern. Your morning routine is set, your commute to work is set, your recreation is set and the outfits you feel comfortable in are also somehow set. But when it comes to fashion and even progress in life, you have to remember, rethinking and reinvention is where the magic begins. CEO and Founder, POPxo, Priyanka Gill decided to take a big leap out of the fashion rut. She spent a week experimenting with power dressing and breaking a pattern.


Marks & Spencer’s Spring-Summer ‘19 collection with their ‘Rethink’ theme inspired and aided Priyanka’s fashion upheaval journey. Here’s what she learnt from this week of high fashion overhaul.

For work, I am always on the lookout for interesting separates. I love the structured look - here I have paired a @marksandspencerindia blazer in a fun colour with a floral shirt and linen trousers from their SS19 collection. . Beating the #MondayBlues with pink is always a good idea :) . This week, for @marksandspencerindia, I will be sharing a new look everyday. I love the idea of #RethinkWithMandS - especially when it comes to workwear. .

Starting with day 1, Priyanka decided to shed the blues. While the structure was the theme of the day, she decided to rethink a classic blazer look with this more fun pink version. Instead of colour block separates, she decided to soften the look a little with a spring themed floral shirt.


Rethink tip: Pairing separates in pastel colours will give you a structured but softer look.

While Monday was about structure, Tuesday was the day for the reinvention of the pantsuit. Priyanka decided to give long trousers a rest in the heat and decided to amp her look up with a shorts-suit.


Rethink tip: While wearing formal co-ords, experiments with various lengths and silhouettes. Don’t just stick to a pantsuit combo.

As it’s the middle of the week and the weekend is still a while away, I decided to brighten up my look with a splash of colour. . Pairing mustard linen pants with a printed purple blouse is a departure from my usual muted palette - I was pleasantly surprised at the result. Stepping out of my comfort-zone (style-wise) is definitely on my to-do list now :) . This week, for @marksandspencerindia, I will be sharing a new look everyday. I love the idea of #RethinkWithMandS - especially when it comes to work-wear. .

As Wednesday rolled around, and Priyanka started yearning for Friday, she decided to bring weekend dressing to the week and gave it a formal twist. A sucker for a muted palette, she decided it was time for mustard.


Rethink tip: The easiest way to change your look is to add a bright popping colour that is a complete contrast to your usual colour palette.

On Thursday, Priyanka’s boss woman mindset gained momentum. She decided to risk it all and explore her wild side. Pairing this animal print top with structured and muted mustard pants was definitely a risk but completely worth it.


Rethink tip: If you’re a little apprehensive about wearing bold prints, pair it with a more muted garment.


Look 5






It’s the best day of the week (we aren’t counting the weekend here). Priyanka decided to fall back to her favourite high waisted skirt and blouse combo to ring in the weekend.


Rethink tip: A pencil skirt is an ideal companion if you have plans after work. Change your top or add a bold lip colour and you’d be ready for a dinner or party within minutes.

For my Saturday look, I decided to work with one of my fashion faves - the dependable black and white striped shirt. I usually wear it with a pair of black pants but today I decided to #Rethink the usual. The cherry red pants and pretty block heels add a dash of glam - perfect to bring the weekend in. .

To kickstart the weekend Priyanka decided to go the cherry red route, and we are definitely not complaining.


Rethink tip: If you usually combine a particular piece with the same garment, try and change up the pairing with a contrast colour or silhouette. It would completely change your look.

For my seventh and final look, I went with bright and easy going separates. My first instinct was to pair the cape with well-tailored pants but I decided to #Rethink the obvious and teamed it up with this lovely dress that's ideal for the Delhi summer. Paired with these gorgeous orange pumps - this look is my Sunday #ootd This week, for @marksandspencerindia, I will be sharing a new look everyday.

Alas, the last day of the challenge. Priyanka decided to completely go with the flow on this one, literally! Usually capes are paired with structured silhouettes and that was her first instinct, but instead, she decided to go for this flowy brunch-ready ensemble in a spring colour.


Rethink tip: Don’t be afraid of colours. Even if your outfit is a bright colour, pair it with bright contrasting accessories, it will turn your look on its head.


Marks & Spencer with their SS ‘19 collection is imploring you to let your inner diva out and rethink the way you style yourself. With the bright and happy colours in this collection, you can absolutely let your personality shine through just as our CEO did. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to rethink and reinvent!
