Bollywood is just an ocean of style tips, isn’t it? From Internationally recognised fashionista’s like Sonam Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai to Bollywood’s own Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt – everyone has something to contribute, and some of them do it better than the rest. If you’re ever stuck in a style rut, look to your TVs or even Instagram and you’ll find a never ending scroll of different things you can try. And if you want to see what they look like, bets are that Bollywood has already tried it. Here are 8 useful tips we stole from 8 such celebrities.
If we could give Alia Bhatt a title, it would be ‘Child of the Sun’. Here’s what we learnt from her look – The best way to dress for the summer is to add bright colours, obviously. But when they come in prints like leaves, palm trees, the sun, or anything that screams summer, that’s when you know you’ve done it right.
The fact that she added sandals in an even brighter colour only adds to the look and makes it pop out more.
No one does print on print like Anushka Sharma, this you already know. Why it works so well is because she’s paired two primary prints together. The look probably wouldn’t work as well if there were florals or an aztec print involved.
The only reason leather worked in this heat for Priyanka Chopra is because she matched it with summer essentials. Floral shoes and a washed out denim vest. Next time you feel like breaking out those leather pants, remember to take your florals with you.
Ask Kangana Ranaut. Sometimes just one layer isn’t enough. Pile it on like Kangana and when you’re doing it, don’t be afraid to mix up your materials and silhouettes – it won’t work if everything is slouchy or if everything is super tight.
It’s true! Jacqueline Fernandez wore all blue and felt like a pop of colour, which came in the form of her sling. That’s two block colours and a perfect combination. She didn’t need to wear two different pieces to colour block, all she did was accessorise.
…if you do it like how Shraddha Kapoor has. A twin-set is all the rage right now and whether it’s a matching top and skirt or jacket like Shraddha, it’s got that somethin’ somethin’.
This is quite similar to point 6. It isn’t a power-suit you’ll see in the halls of a super corporate office, this is a bright number that can be worn to a formal cocktail or dinner – don’t be afraid to match your trousers and jacket to amp up the edge. And better yet, make sure your buttons go high enough and skip the blouse/tee inside – sexy and powerful all at once.
Just add sneakers! And if Deepika Padukone can get away with it, it’s something you definitely need to keep in mind. Sneakers work under dresses, skirts, shorts and basically anything you throw at them. See how Kangana did it too in point 4.
