Simi’s Steals: The Striped Slit Skirt
One universal fashion problem for most girls is, “What do I wear today?” This question has the power to reduce us to a hysterical mess. Fashionista or not, nobody wants sartorial answers that cost a fortune. And let’s just be honest, you’re THE style star if you know how to dress to the nines on a budget. So I’ve taken up this Herculean task: every Saturday, I’ll round up a budget-friendly ensemble for you, all BELOW Rs 10,000. Yes! It’s going to be an entire outfit — from head-to-toe — without breaking the bank. Quite a challenge, right? Scroll down to shop this budget ensemble, and don’t forget to come back every Saturday to discover an outfit that’s yet another steal!
There’s nothing more basic than a striped outfit. But frankly, you should never underestimate its potential — it can totally stand out given the way you style it. Add a striped shirt to a pair of denim dungarees for a laidback yet chic vibe. Or team up a striped dress with the right pair of shoes to get you a perfect 9-5 look.
This week’s Style Steal is a striped slit skirt that I found while online sleuthing on Mango. This one is perfect for days when you’re looking to be a little touristy (woohoo, it’s the long weekend guys). I’ve paired this skirt with a playful print poplin shirt; the multi-colours on the shirt make it look really funky. Skip the white sneaker for a black pair from 20 Dresses, and add a studded sling bag to your ensemble that’s big enough for your essentials. Don’t forget to accessorise with rings, and I’d suggest you also add a pair of sunnies to this look, especially if you’re going to be out and about in the city for some sightseeing.
