DIY Pre-plum Elegant Dress #ErtsyLookOfTheWEEK

DIY Pre-plum Elegant Dress

Hey Lovelies! As I spent last week in India with my family, I styled my younger sister, Ananya, for an ERTSY look of the week. The special thing about this look is that while coming with it, we joined our heads together to create a DIY dress and eventually it became a DIY Pre-plum Elegant Dress. The composition is fairly easy, we picked up some beautiful clothing pieces and belted them together (literally).

The Look:

A dirty nude pink mid/below knee length skirt

A black tank top

An black and red embroidered clasp-able/zip-able shrug

A navy blue cloth belt and a Big Choker necklace to bundle it.

Stockings and suitable black boots

Some DIY Spirit! 😀


The Hair & Make-up:

Light turquoise in eye make-up

Red Mat Lip Color

Twisted part hair pony in wavy hair


The DIY:


  1. Start with the skirt over the tank top and pull it all the way up.

2. Use a slightly over-sized embroidered Jacket/shrug in the matching colour scheme. We’ve used red and black here. Make sure that it is in sturdy fabric and is clasp-able/zip-able to create the pre-plum look.

BTW, I cut this out from another dress I had, so you could always do that, too.

3. Use a cloth belt, complementary to the colour scheme and tie it a little on the upper side of your waist over the jacket/shrug.

4. Belt it and then adjust your shrug/jacket from the belt to create the pre-plum frame.
