One winter morning in New Delhi, I decided to go out and enjoy the chill weather that I don’t get to in the hot streets of MUMBAI! I thought why not make good use of the winter chills and create some amazing content. First TBH I didn’t plan it this way, I thought I’ll do different winter looks (but everyone is doing that) then when I was actually out there, thinking, I was like this is genius, I can help all of you guys to create different looks out of one turtleneck LBD that I bought from H&M, that would be pretty cool, so here it is.
The first look is quite easy, I layered my LBD with a Massimo Dutti long overcoat, the greyish brown colour of the coat gives it a formal yet stylish look, also my velvet black sling from Charles & Keith completed the whole outfit. Ofc, my Apple Watch for counting my steps as well as a fashion staple nowadays for me and I like to add those sunglasses for a finished look. You can keep your makeup minimal, in nudes or you can go over the top with red lipstick and a quirky eyeshadow. That’s the beauty of this outfit, its so minimal that you can play around with makeup and hair. But, I like to keep my outfits simple yet stylish so here it goes.
The second look involves layering the LBD with a zebra print, long shrug which I bought from ZARA and a silver sling from C&K. Animal prints are “in” right now so investing in an animal print overcoat, jacket, skirt or any piece of clothing is a good decision. Plus it also makes the whole look more “FASHION” per se. I used the 90’s retro glasses to finish the look.
Third and the most interesting look is this one, I personally love this look. I happened to carry a leather skirt with me but was confused how can I style it in a way that is not conventional, tried putting around my waist (nah! that’s really common) tried other things but this one stuck with me the most, I used a black leather skirt as a layer on my LBD in the most unconventional way. Well of course, I paired it with an embellished sling again from C&K and this time used my yellow retro glasses to add that extra quirk. I know y’all will be skeptical about wearing it out but trust me its the most unique way to style a skirt.
The fourth look is pretty simple as well, I wore a red velvet skirt from Forever21 over my LBD. Used the same Massimo Dutti coat for some extra layering and my embellished sling along with the retro black glasses. This look can be worn with or without the overcoat, just play with it according to your mood. S/O to moody people like me who dress up according to their moods.
The fifth look is styled in the similar way as the fourth one. I used the same black leather skirt that I used for the third look over my LBD and layered it with the same Massimo Dutti overcoat and my favourite sling with it. This is how you can use pieces from your wardrobe to create various different outfits. Just bring out the inner creative genius in you and you are good to go.
Here comes the sixth and the final look that I created. I layered the LBD with a beige overcoat to give my outfit a luxurious and classy touch. I bought this coat from a vintage shop in Europe. Then to add some quirk I used my yellow sheer retro glasses and faux fur ankle boots for the extra oomph. I love how this experiment turned out. I really enjoyed making this post, hopefully its equally interesting for the readers as well. Basically its about how we can play and style our existing wardrobe that counts. I am also going to post many of my styling projects on my blog from now on so be prepared for the same. Also comment which look you liked the most in the comments section below. Till then XOXO.
