The White Shirt Project: 1 shirt, 9 ways

By 03:13 Thursday, 14 April 2016 , ,

Hello everyone,

#TheWhiteShirtProject is a 10-day personal style photo series shot by Aliya {@matargasht} from @streetstyledelhi and styled by me. 

We have tried to have as much fun as possible with a single white shirt while being extremely practical- hope you all will like it. It would mean the worldddd to me if you share your thoughts about the outfits in the comments. Have a look: 

Description


What does a good white shirt need? Nothing, really. But I do believe that a kickass pair of boyfriend jeans {mine's got pretty rhinestones too}, sturdy bright kolhapuris and a bucket bag to carry your world in, work mighty fine.

It's going to be hot and you're going to want your hair out of your face. Great news- top buns will forever be fashionable.

However, at the end, it all comes down to one very important question- do I need the bling? If the answer is a screaming YES, put on whatever the fuck you like the most in that jewellery box- there are no rules to this game. 🌸✨

Shirt: Street shopped
Jeans: Koovs
Kolhapuris: Dilli Haat

Bucket Bag: Stella Ricci on Amazon.com

Life is too short to wear your favourite dress the exact same way each time. We can do better than that! Throw on a white shirt at the very least and see how it transforms the whole thing. The belt is optional, I am liking whatever little structure it lends and the tan sync. Two things I discovered with this one: hair ties make for fantastic brooches and that my knees can never be free of bruises

Dress: Street-shopped
Shoes: AQ Shop
Bag: Lavie

I tend to pick up anything that is even remotely retro- should have been born in the 70s. I truly believe there is no reason you shouldn't tie your best scarves as headbands every now and then, and that a pop of yellow is always a good idea.

Always remember- no sunglasses are ever "too big" and you really don't need a time machine to travel back in time. 🏼✨

#TheWhiteShirtProject is also the story of how I was too broke to invest in a summer jacket so I just put a shirt on the shirt. They are anyway layering EVERYTHING these days- did you hear about the trend of layering bags? SHIRT ON SHIRT has the potential of becoming the next big summer trend. If it does, you know where you saw it first! ✨

I had got this vest tailored especially for the dandiya season! Never really planned on wearing it with a white shirt ever, but this was fun. The sole reason I want to be rich in life is so that I can spend all my monies on gorgeous silver jewellery. Silver jewellery makes me happy.

And though it may look like it but that is not my bitch-face. My bitch-face is better than that.

Silver Necklace: Street-shopped

This one is an ode to the classics- black sunglasses that don't demand attention, flared denims that fit like a dream and an envelope clutch that is justtt the right size.


Details:

Flared Denims: H&M
Envelope Clutch: Koovs
Sunglasses: Vogue Eyewear
Dreamcatcher necklace: H&M




Description

I am not the biggest fan of lace but I like how it instantly makes a garment look dressy. Added chunky jewellery, a box clutch and colourful peep-toes so that the outfit doesn't end up looking like a uniform. I would've left my hair open if it wasn't such a bad hair day.

Skirt: Trendybella
Shoes: Footin at BATA
Box Clutch: Lino Perros on Myntra
Necklaces: Street-shopped



Description

Culottes are the only thing I like more than palazzos in summers- easy breezy! Have been wearing these outrageous but awesome octagonal sunglasses almost everyday, everywhere. The knot on the shirt is purely for the purpose of fun.

Shoes: Footin at BATA
Sunglasses: Propshop24
Bag: Chiaroscuro
Necklace: Dandelion Fashions {More about them here}

Summers are for weird, but fun experiments and getting away with them! Wear your cotton maxi with a shirt and a tie and most importantly, a smile. 🏼✨

I have to admit guys, prepping for and executing this series was back-breaking! But it was really worth it, I am quite happy with the end result and hope you like it too. Feel free to drop a comment if you have any feedback, questions or favourites <3
