Simi’s Steals: The Patched-Up T-Shirt
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 3,000. 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!
Ever heard the saying, “It’s the small things that matter”? Before you boycott me for going all philosophical on you, let me clear this out right away. The small things actually matter sartorially. And as of this season, the little things that are making quite a statement in style are patches and pins. I love how these tiny accessories can update anything from a basic tee to a plain old pair of denim pants or even a moto jacket that you thought had lost its cool quotient. In fact, I remember when I was in school, pins on backpacks were seriously in vogue. You were instantly part of the ‘too cool for school’ squad if you could successfully showcase your crafty side by trying a patch-or-pin DIY on either your tee or backpack (the little joys of a 90s kid).
And so, my pick for this week is a patch tee from Mango. It is a perfect choice for those who like adding a fun element to their everyday style. I’ve paired this with a cute polka-dot skater skirt that I found on Faballey. To complete the look, I picked a pair of espadrille flats that are perfect for the season. A weekend outing ensemble, all for under Rs 3,000. Perfect, isn’t it?
