Project '6 for the price of 1'

Objective: To get 6 times the worth of an oversized denim shirt (bcos we're cheap like that, heh)

Tools: Oversized denim shirt, belt, random Tees, some creativity

We've all gone through days when dressing up becomes a pain in the arse. You've got a shirt, but damn, what do you do with it? Well here's a couple of ways we played around with using a simple oversized denim shirt. Makes life a whole lot easier when u've got a few options to play around with huh?

Wear it how your father would

Or wear it over a Tee and turn it into a bustier tube dress

Or you could try turning it into a long slouchy skirt for that grungier look
Or wear it short?

A simple denim collared dress perhaps?

or wear it over the neck during cooler days

Try this on your oversized checked shirt or a vintage floral piece for different looks. We're sure there's more to play around with , but this is just a few we thought you might have fun experimenting with.

Hit us if you've got other crazier ideas to work with!

ps: We'll be announcing the winner for best 'XXX' name next monday!
