Boi’s Budget Buys: The Breezy Off-Shoulder Dress

By  | 

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!

Boho chic is a cool look to pull off, don’t you think? It can be anything you want it to be — no judgement. Think edgy, sexy, breezy, fun, relaxed, and uber stylish. What’s not to love? The other great thing about the boho vibe is anti-fit — say goodbye to unsightly bulges and tummy tuckers! This year’s Winter-Festive season in the fashion world has been all about anti-fit, and we ain’t complainin’!

But even when I go the anti-fit, boho route, my style remains fairly feminine — what can I say, I’m a girlie girl. Which is why my pick for this week’s budget look is this très chic, très chill, très pretty off-shoulder dress. Firstly, it’s white — you CANNOT go wrong with it, no matter where you are and which season it is. Further, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that the off/cold shoulder trend ain’t going nowhere. And this particular piece is so versatile, you can team it with ERRRYTHING.

Well, I decided to pair this with these super haute flatform bluchers (yes, they’re my new obsession). These Zara charcoal grey brogue counterparts with a metallic sheen are just too cool for school. And again, you can wear them with a pretty dress like this one to add a bit of an edge; or your mom jeans for the fashion-blogger look; or even a pair of shorts on a hot summer day. I mean, #LOVE.

Coming back to the boho chic look, I’ve added a ethnic-y chunky silver statement neckpiece, that will perfectly off-set your off-shoulder (see what I did there?). And finally, for the much-needed and much-love pop of colour, here is the cutest faux leather sling bag I found — one I found weeks ago and have been dying to use.

So there you have it! A look that’s boho, feminine, and edgy in equal parts. Can you say yay? If you’re planning this outfit or a similar one for a lazy post-Diwali brunch or for your BFF’s birthday, send us your pictures already!
