The Look: Latha Sivaprasad, MD

Latha Sivaprasad, MD is a doctor by day, fashionista by night


"My style could be described as classic with an urban twist. Spending the last several years in New York City has definitely had a profound, creative and lasting influence on how I approach accessories, colors, patterns and comfort. My standard uniform at the hospital always includes a suit jacket or my long white lab coat with extremely rare exceptions. That has been the case for several years, even while I was pregnant with my one-year-old son."

"I typically wear black with pops of color through statement necklaces. My current favorite costume jewelry designer is Amrita Singh. Her pieces tend to be bold, different and fun. I like to pair her items with my onyx Van Cleef & Arpels earrings, which are a near-constant wardrobe staple."

"For work I tend to lean heavily towards Elie Tahari, Theory and Anne Klein as a base and then personalize the look with blouses or jewelry.  I do firmly believe that first impressions are critical and that what you wear contributes highly to that significant equation."

"I find enormous joy from collaborations with high-end designers and retail stores. In that spirit, my necklace is Trina Turk for Banana Republic and my blouse is Altuzarra for Target. My bracelet is Kate Spade, a designer I love wearing because her pieces are happy and always a bit whimsical. Mixing and matching is the foundation of my approach to style."
