One dress, three looks!
Converting one outfit into three sounds like magic. But with these simple tips, you can squeeze out more from your shirt dress, saving you money and pepping up your style quotient.
Tired of wearing your shirt dress? Instead of relegating it to the back of your closet and spending money on buying a new outfit, here’s how to get three trendy looks on a budget, by re-using the classic shirt dress.
The shirt dresses
Save: If you don’t already have a shirt dress and want to pick up one that doesn’t cost the earth, your best bet is this pretty peach shirt dress from Myntra.com, for Rs1,539 (30% off on the regular price).
Splurge: If you’re treating yourself, pick up one of the gorgeous shirt dresses from Nautica. We love this brown floral one, for Rs5,999. It’s also available online at Myntra.com.
#1: Dress it up
A classic way to wear the shirt dress is on its own. But for a little twist on that look, secure the waist with a thick belt to create a look like this one.
A red tote from Jabong.com as a fun accessory Rs299
A red belt from Jabong.com to cinch the dress together and add a pop of colour Rs480 (20% off)
Nude shoes from Myntra.com to complete the look Rs649 (50% off)
Total cost: Rs1,428
#2: Top it off
If you’ve got colourful t-shirts around, here’s a great way to use them. Wear them over a shirt dress to create a range of different looks.
A bright pink skirt from Dressberry, available at Myntra.com Rs769 (30% off)
Accessorise with this bracelet from Craftsvilla Rs250
Pair it with black slippers from Flipkart.com Rs348 (41% off)
Add colour with this cranberry clutch or design your own from Toteteca bags Rs900
If you want a look that’s more pocket friendly, ditch the clutch and carry one of your own purses instead.
Total cost: Rs2,267 (Rs1,367 without the clutch)
#3: Skirting the issue
Why buy a skirt when you’ve got a pretty shirt dress that can double up as one? Make a fun outfit by picking up these items:
A yellow mesh top from Riot (Infiniti Mall, Malad W) that covers the inset sleeves: Rs899
Red earrings from City N U to add a pop of colour: Rs250
A scarf from Wrap Studio to wrap over the collar: Rs550
You can skip the scarf on a very hot day and let the collar peek out for a cute, alternative look.
Total cost: Rs1,794 (Rs1,244 without the scarf)
