One shirt, four fabulous ways, as modelled by Anoushka Shankar!

Most Popular

1. Shirt + Bralet

The easiest route to go from classic to sexy—pair a bralet with a white shirt. It adds edge, plus makes the otherwise daring bralet much easier to work.

Shirt, Calvin Klein, Rs.6,699; bralet, IKAI by Ragini Ahuja, Rs.6,490; pants, CUE by Rohit Gandhi+Rahul Khanna, Rs.14,500;  Tiara, vajor.com, Rs.1,950; Link bracelet, Amrapali, Rs.10,000; yellow pumps, price on request

2. Shirt + Corset

Just like the bralet, adding an off-shoulder anything (top or corset) elevates the look by several notches. Pro tip: go for bold prints or solid colours to make the look fashion forward.
