Just a little #extra

That failsafe striped shirt that lives in almost everyone’s wardrobe today has been a modern woman’s go-to uniform ever since Coco Chanel identified the pattern’s mass potential. From shirts and skirts to bags and boots, in sizes small and big, wearing stripes will never go out of fashion — take it from stylist Rhea Kapoor herself, who recently picked the print for her sister Sonam Kapoor’s OTT celebratory dinner, hosted by Natasha Poonawalla. 

And if you’re wondering how to give your stripes a makeover that has 2018 written all over it, Rhea’s version is perfect:

3 easy ways to take your striped shirt from desk to dinner, according to Rhea Kapoor:

1. Opt for super-sized sleeves

The bigger, the better. Everyone from Prabal Gurung to Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla is experimenting with the trend — check out our curated list of sleeve styles to covet for summer.

2. Add statement jewellery

Rhea picks a silver choker and a double finger ring to round off her outfit, but not before unbuttoning the shirt to give it a sexy spin. Explore our top picks of designer jewellery, all under Rs. 5,000.

3. Complement your flared sleeves with flared pants

Palazzos are perfect for bottom-heavy girls who want to accentuate their waist. Add a pair of heels to give the illusion of longer legs.
