Babe On A Budget: Movie Date Look Under Rs 5000

By  | 

Dressing for a date can be rather tricky,  you have to walk that fine line between dressy and laidback. Movie dates especially can be hard, a dress can be too dressy for a just movie, while wearing PJs may look like you got too comfortable, too quick. What you need is to look effortlessly chic. Easier said that done.

Hence, we’ve taken up this enormous task and curated an entire outfit from head-to-toe, which is chic and dressy, yet has relaxed elements, to give that smooth ‘I woke up like this’ vibe!

What’s even better is that you can snag this look on a budget! This entire look is under Rs.5000, so you don’t have to break the bank. And these are statement pieces that you can add to style up any other outfit.

If you want to look cool, yet dressed up and stylish, the trick is to keep the clothes casual, and really make the styling work. The easiest way to look easy-chic is to slip into a pair of joggers. This pair of pants looks stylish, while giving off a nonchalant and easy vibe. A white pair like this one, with a broad waist string, makes it less gym-wear and more movie-night cool.

Add a pop of colour to this look with a bright spaghetti top. Unlike a tank top, this top comes in a light fabric that does not stick to your body and gives a relaxed vibe.

It tends to get chilly inside a theatre ( a conspiracy to get people all snuggly, methinks!).  Save your self from the theatre’s chill that will make you run for a bathroom break several times, and carry a lightweight denim jacket along. You can either sling it across your forearm or wear it in a Canadian-tuxedo style.

Now that we have our outfit sorted, let’s get down to the styling! It is a universal rule that a pair of heels can elevate any outfit. Instead of picking really fancy ones that make you look too excited about a movie date, wear PVC block heels. They will go with your look, they are understated and give you that much-needed height. The heels are what add an edge to this otherwise casual look.

In terms of accessories, a simple black sling bag to carry all your essentials, and a pair of light and thin oversized hoops should do the job.
