You Do You: The INDY’s Super Fabulous Interactive Dress-Up Doll Extravaganza

What to wear, what to wear?

It's a vexed question that preceeds many a day or night out. We consider it our solemn duty to make sure you don't miss your Uber, which is why we've assembled this paper-doll spread so you can test out various options on the fly.

Step one: Cut out the gender-neutral paper doll. (Go ahead and grab a couple of copies of the paper if you need to—really, we don't mind.)

Step two: Select your destination, whether it's a concert at Cat's Cradle, the grocery store in the middle of the night, or a meet-and-greet at a tech start-up hub.

Step three: Cut out your outfit of choice and affix it to the doll with the tabs provided to see how it looks.

Step four: Profit?

Really though, our crash course in how to dress where is a bit of a laugh. One of the things we love most about the Triangle, including its style, is its individuality and self-definition. So if you want to throw on the opera cloak for a Motorco show or rock the overalls at DPAC—hey, you do you.
