Grace & Hustle

Grace and hustle, two words that don’t always work together. Every busy woman has to deal with juggling multiple activities at the same time and the last thing you need to worry about is ‘do I feel good in this outfit’? The Sapphire daily line offers comfortable and stylish looks that any woman can rely on to feel good in and give them the confidence that it is one less thing to worry about. If you feel good then you feel confident, and then anything is possible.

Mashal Waqar has amassed incredible success in the world of journalism. She is the co-founder & COO of The Tempest, has been awarded “Young Leader of the Year” (an award at the 19th Global WIL Economic Forum) and was mentioned in the Forbes 30 under 30 Asia’s 2018 list. Being all too aware of the hurdles and discrimination that women often have to face in society, Mashal tries to help women with her multiple projects, empower them with her dialogue and believes that all entrepreneurs benefit from having mentors, partners and a great network.

Millennials can be motivated by this successful entrepreneur and know that there can be no fixed criteria to become Boss Lady. Mashal helps women materialize their dreams through inspirational articles posted on her website, conducts motivational TED talks, has her own podcast and gives interviews to create greater awareness about how it is possible for women to become a successful businessperson.

“Women are powerful. And we’re shaking things up across so many industries. I hope a few years from now, we see more women in top leadership, and boards, and in decision making positions everywhere. That will happen inevitably when we take steps (sometimes even scary ones) in spaces we’re passionate about. The onus is on everybody to make a more equitable future, a reality.”

Sapphire’s daily line is Mashal’s choice for what to wear to the office and meetings. She believes what she wears at work matters, not to define her, but something that will make her feel comfortable and give her confidence. For our meeting today Mashal has styled the Sapphire daily line unstitched three-piece in a contemporary silhouette featuring a printed jacket, a plain ivory slip with matching cropped culottes; keeping the look stylish and effortless.

The rich vintage inspired prints in fresh pastels create interest without being overpowering. It is relaxed yet elegant, making this look perfect for any business meeting.

Mashal’s second outfit is styled with her lucky-charm beaded bracelet and pink heels for a touch of elegance. Her hair is half-tied in a effortless yet chic way and the nails are painted in her favorite fearless color.
