A High End Wardrobe- Tricks and The DIY Shorts.
I have this really amazing trip coming up, but not a lot of fabulous things to wear during the festivities. Luckily, it's easy to look expensive and gorgeous with these insider tricks. Read on-
- Hit up a local street market or high street stores for designer inspired gear at a fraction of the price. (Recently, on my trip to Delhi, I visited Karol Bagh and bought a bag for a cousin that was an inspired piece from Coco Channel. The original price of the branded item was Rs.7795 but I got it for only Rs. 550. Now isn't that a great deal?)
- Buy inexpensive ensembles online at eBay stores and ASOS. Timeless pieces always look chic.
- Get new basics, like a good pair of black leggings and patterned tanks, to jazz up outfits.
- Buy tops and dresses that look like they could be from anywhere. Layer on accessories, like an oversized ring or dangly earrings, to make your personal style come through.
- Skip the knock-off designer handbag. It's easy for people who have the real deal to spot a fake. Instead, spend that money on a nice non-label bag.
- Wear a single piece of clothing in different styles. It is always great to wear a skirt as a tube dress and throw in a shrug or a coat and add a thin belt on the waistline. Or you could even try wearing a long tunic as a dress and probably like adding a thin belt and stockings or just the belt. And as I always say, EXPERIMENT...
Coming to the outfit. Here's what I wore yesterday and went out with my brothers to have some crazy time to spend. I'm really very attached to my brothers (cousins included). I'm blessed to be the only girl child in my entire damn huge family. :) Imagine what all advantages you can have. *devilish grin* :D Oh! And btw, the shorts are a DIY piece that I made a few weeks ago. The funny part? A rat had made holes in the knee area and I really did not know what to do with the Denims. After a lot of head scratching I finally decided to cut them and convert into shorts. I obviously did not want to throw the Jeans away.
