Haila! Seeta Or Geeta? 9 Fashion Items That Serve A Double Purpose For The True Gemini Girl!


Admit it, we’ve all tried to wear our mini skirt as a tube top at least once in our life. But not all of us can pull it off. What begins as an experiment to multiverse fashion has the potential of ending as an epic fail or…well, a new trend.

Geminis, owing to their two different personalities, have a knack for things you and I otherwise might fail at. Expressive, sociable, communicative and ready for fun, a Gemini is many things. So, here are nine fashion items that serve a double purpose to feed their two moods. Take a cue from these Bollywood celebrities and nail the art of doubling like a true Gemini girl.

2. Tunic As A Dress

We all have at least one oversized tee in our closet and every time we look at it, we can only picture it with basic black leggings. Though that makes for a very comfortable outfit, it’s not a real head turner. Ditch your jeans and wear it as a dress if it’s long enough to pass for it. You could try the same with your tunics as well, just like Taapsee.

3. Longline Shirt As Dress

This is why we have boyfriends! So we can steal their gigantic shirts and wear them as dresses. A longline or oversized shirt can double up as a cute dress with the right belt and accessories, take it from Parineeti Chopra. You can also wear it with leggings or tuck it in your cropped pants for a Sonam Kapoor-like look.

4. Shirt Dress As Shrug

Mira Kapoor wore this shirt dress from the House of Anita Dongre like a casual shrug, as pointed out by A Fashionista’s Diary. The doors to shrugs have finally opened for us. I, for one, don’t like spending on shrugs because I end up forgetting to wear them. But this shirt dress cum shrug business sounds like a deal made in fashion heaven.

Kurtas are an excellent way to beat the heat this season. They’re not limited to jeans, leggings or palazzos! Pick a kurta without side slits, ditch your churidaar and wear it as it is like a dress. They’re usually either calf or ankle length so no need of spending separately on midis. Big on fashion, big on savings.
