I don’t remember the last time I actually went out and bought workout T-shirts because hey, when you have two elder brothers, I don’t see a need for it. Why buy it when you can flick it! 😉
I was in a state of dilemma ever since they moved out; only because of the tees part!
So I resorted to flicking my Dad’s clothes instead, and made them my own. 🙂
I have created three looks using pieces from my Dad’s closet.
1.The Knotty Kurta :
Pulled out an Ikat Kurta from his wardrobe and made a dressy affair by simply knotting up two ends thereby creating some asymmetry.
Threw on a printed vest to keep things fun. A simple lip neckpiece, a ceramic white watch, a green sling, and my go-to white sneakers finished the look for me.
Kurta: 100 Park Street; Vest: Self-Designed; Neckpiece: Shopper’s Stop; Watch: GC Watches; White Sneakers: Forever 21; Sling: Charles & Keith; Shades: Tribe.In
P.S: Do wear a pair of shorts underneath to avoid any embarrassing moments.
A big fan of vests and when I spotted this vest in Dad’s wardrobe, I couldn’t keep my hands and eyes off it.
Teamed this Ikat(yes, again) vest with a simple polka dotted dress underneath and clinched it with a belt to create a slight peplum-ish effect.
A pair of combat boots, golden earrings, a green belt creating the peplum effect, and a rose gold watch finished the look for me.

3. (K)Not My Shirt:
Wanted to create a rather edgy look which could be totally worked for the after hours.
Teamed a plum coloured shirt from my Dad’s wardrobe with a pair of suspenders, a black sheer, pleated skirt and a statement brooch. Tied the shirt in a knot at the waist and pulled up the cuffs!
Marsala platforms and a tin briefcase completed the look for me.
Break Up of the Look:
Shirt: Blackberrys; Skirt: A Store in Sri Lanka; Suspenders: H&M; Marsala Platforms: Forever 21, Shoe Brooch: Sameer Madan; Tin Briefcase: Thrifted; Shades: Tribe.In
I hope all you women are running to your Dad’s wardrobe.
One word: be sly; okay that’s two.
