Comfort and wearability have been key in putting together our at-home wardrobes. And a relaxed-fit shirtdress promises to keep you looking and feeling cool. The summer staple was also an obvious pick for Samantha Akkineni amid the mandated lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak. The south star, who is currently confined to her home with husband Naga Chaitanya, has so far been relying on laid-back maxi dresses, kurtas and shirts while at home. Now, the Jaanu actor shared another Instagram story with her 10 million followers, where she can be spotted in a checkered shirtdress. Keep reading to take a closer glimpse at her choice and how you can recreate the look for yourself.
Samantha Akkineni skipped makeup with her roomy shirtdress
To capture her latest selfie, Samantha Akkineni chose a roomy white and blue checkered shirtdress. With minimal styling required, shirtdresses are perfect to lounge at home in, and have got a nod from other celebrities like Priyanka Chopra during self-isolation too. Akkineni ditched chunky jewellery and simply wore diamond studs with her ensemble. The 33-year-old combed her hair back tightly and left her face bare to flaunt her glowing complexion in the picture.
Lightweight and playful, a checkered button-down shirtdress is an essential you can wear repeatedly. Although Akkineni’s pick came, quite literally, with no frills, don’t be fooled by its simplicity. A checkered shirt combines the care-free vibe of a shirt with a put-together appeal of a dress. Why not keep a comfy basic like hers on hand if you have to get on video calls through the day? All you need is a pair of earrings to dress it up. If you need a similar option to add to your stash, scroll ahead to find out where you can find it online.
