While we talk about how white is the colour of the season and how it logically makes sense, we also should think about experimenting with it. White shirts or kurtas or white tees and even white dress can easily become a go-to but if you wear the same look again and again then your summer wardrobe would be a bore. A quick trick is to switch things up by styling your look differently. Today, we’re reimagining Alia Bhatt‘s all-white desi look as an alternative option for a casual cool outfit.
For the screening of Kalank, celebrity stylist Ami Patel went for a simple yet beautiful kurta set from Drzya by Ridhi Suri. Known for all things handcrafted and summer-friendly, the ensemble that Alia wore was just made for this season. The kurta set was eye-catching on its own so Ami rightfully styled it with just jhumkas from Sangeeta Boochra and strappy heels. Here are the few details of her outfit that we really loved:
- The striped texture on the bodice against the polka dot texture of the rest of the kurta.
- The trumpet sleeves.
- The tiered silhouette of the kurta.
- The flared pants with a design panel at the hem.
- The fringed border of the dupatta with the self-embroidery design.
With some interesting design elements like this one, it’s easy to make it your go-to outfit. But imagine a style twist in this. What if you could wear the kurta as a dress? A kurta like this one can be easily pulled-off as a dress, as it has all the making of one. You can style it with strappy heels, long statement earrings, and a tote bag and you’re good to go for a casual day out or for a brunch date with your friends.
