  • Since a regular shirt would have looked far too big on me, I decided to go for one that's a 'slim fit'. If you're on the skinnier side like me, then you should do the same. I then paired it with a pair of grey tights to keep the look monochrome and minimal. A tiered necklace and brogues finished the look. PS: I wore my hair down so that the shirt didn't look bigger than it already was, since my hair covered the shoulders.

  • Okay, here's a rule of thumb. When you're wearing anything oversized, wearing a belt really helps. It immediately pulls in the waist and gives some shape to all the bulk. In this case, I did exactly that, plus I paired it with a metallic skirt so that focus shifts from my dark, bulky sweater to my pleated skirt. And it's definitely a look I would try again.

  • I have never worn a tie before. And I mean never. My school didn't have them as part of the uniform so this was a first for me. Which is also why it's tied in a weird manner (I just created a knot on my own). So I paired it with jeans to make it more casual and tied my hair so that the tie remains the focus. Apart from a watch and monochrome sandals, I wore no accessories.

  • It was the big shirt with a twist; I paired it with jeans and a crop sweater. I kept the jeans and shirt monotone and added a colourful sweater to brighten up the look. And it didn't look all that new to me after I wore it either. It was definitely the easiest one yet.

  • And last but not the least, I decided to pair my skin tight pencil dress with my dad's sweater. It seemed quite odd at first, but the outfit actually seemed to work. I finished the look with basic brogues and a sleek top knot.
