Trust me, I know the struggle. I know those long hours spent in dilemma about what to wear. There might be a thousand outfits and yet we struggle to find something new, and every time we do buy something new, it creates a mammoth hole in our pockets. For them, here is a list of five wardrobe must-haves, which you can wear and re-wear in multiple ways and have a new outfit every time.
I can’t even begin to stress how important it is to have a plain white t-shirt in your wardrobe. For all those days that you feel like not dressing up, just throw in an over-sized white t-shirt with a faded denim or black leggings and you are good to go. If you do feel like dressing up a bit more, pair the white t-shirt with a flared skirt, tuck it in, put on some dainty jewellery and voila. You can also team it up with your favourite pair of culottes or palazzos.
This is probably the most versatile and most used piece of clothing you would own in your wardrobe. Pair it with your crop tops, flared tops, graphic t-shirts, plaid shirts…basically anything and everything! Tuck your shirts in for the more formal appearance, or just tie a knot for the effortlessly casual look. The main idea is to keep the upper part relaxed and loose, while the pants give you the illusion of being leaner and taller by hugging you at the right places.
Very, very important for all kinds of looks. You can throw this in with your favourite LBD, or any dress, to hide those flabby arms. You can pair it with your favourite tank top or graphic tee for the perfect layered look. Or you could just wear it like a shirt, with black fitted pants or denims, for that edgy Alia Bhatt ‘denim on denim’ Dear Zindagi look.
A must have in an Indian girl wardrobe. A perfect black straight Kurti is perhaps the most elegant piece of clothing. You can pair it with ripped denims for an Indo-western look, or any bright coloured leggings. You can wear it with patiala or dhoti pants for the most comfortable feel. You can also wear it with black cropped leggings and a multi coloured Dupatta or scarf for a beautiful ethnic look. Don’t forget your silver jhumkas with it!
You will need it. I assure you, you will. Wear it with your favourite denims, layer it with your favourite shrug, shirt or those long ethnic jackets. Wear it with long skirts, ethnic palazzos and accessorise with a multi-coloured scarf and junk jewellery. You can always wear them below those deep neck tops as a contrasted vest. You will probably find yourself using this more often than you could imagine.
There are several more, but these, according to me are absolute wardrobe staples. I hope this is useful for all the ladies out there, next time they stand in front of their closets thinking what to wear. Thanks for reading this. Comment if you want me to cover any other topics.
