I hope you had a glorious weekend. So, if you’re bored and want to try something new this Monday, why don’t you try layering – a trend that’s suddenly gained focus?
To layer, no need to buy anything. Walk into your closet and stare at what you already have. Look for graphic tees, jackets, plain white tees, oversized boyfriend shirts, strappy dresses and silken slips.
Basically what you’re looking for is a combination of the following:
A: Something boyish
B: Something incredibly sexy, strappy or girly
Now, look at these images that I have borrowed from Vogue – and see how many of these looks you can channel today.
Wear your graphic tees with contrasting separates – a skirt or a blazer, for maximum impact.
Layer your strappy slips with a plain white tee or toughen it up by adding some leather.
Wear a lot of jackets. Use them to layer and add interest to your everyday attires. Indians, yes, I know it’s hot for a jacket, but if you’ve ever fought with a colleague over the AC temperature, you know indoors, even India can be shivering cold. Yes, so buy some jackets to channel workplace chic.
4. The boyfriend shirt
I decided to layer my white sundress with an oversized boyfriend shirt for just the right amount of playfulness. The best part? It covers the love handles and muffin-tops while accentuating the girlishness of the dress.
Well, that’s all for today. Do try any of these outfit ideas, take a picture, upload on Instagram and tag me at @shivani_krishan
Lots of love, and Happy Monday. 🙂
