Belting a long scarf with your dress is a surefire way to look taller! Needless to say, the layers will up your style game in no time!
2. Knot your shirt instead of tucking it in

Tying a knot instead of tucking in your shirt is a great way to make your attire look more fun. High waisted pants, a knotted shirt and a slight hint of that waist - you’re good to go, girl!
3. Wear fishnet stockings under distressed denims

Since overly distressed denims are quite hot right now, pairing them with fishnet stockings is the perfect way to show some skin without looking scandalous. Team them up with brogues or oxfords in the same colour to make the outfit look well put together.
4. Tie a scarf around your neck!

This works best with off shoulder and boatneck tops. A scarf in the same colour palette as that of your top will complement your look so well! Just look how gorgeous Aashna looks here. *Sigh*
5. Reverse your shirt and wear it

6. Try the half tuck...

You can do this with just about any fancy top in your closet! Don’t we all have one? It’s going to give your look a casual feel while adding a chic vibe to it.
7. Revamp your basic white tee!

8. Tuck your kurti into your ethnic skirt
