While the concept of statement pieces has been around for ages it can be a daunting thought for someone who loves sticking to their neutrals and basics. However, picking a statement piece for your outfit is not as tough as you might think. Statement pieces could be an article of clothing or an accessory that is unique or interesting to look at, and when paired correctly can elevate your style. Including new colours and textures can be an enjoyable and refreshing experience for your fashion wardrobe. Don’t be shy to try new things and experiment with your looks. We’ve listed 5 trendy statement pieces that will take you from basic to chic with the help of our favourite Bollywood celebrities.
Take a cue from the following Bollywood celebrities when styling your statement pieces:
1. Kangana Ranaut’s Oversized Blazers
Blazers are a timeless staple. Most of us have one in our closet but a statement blazer is something special altogether. Kangana plays into the oversized clothing trend beautifully and looks like a boss babe while doing so. She rocks the tailored, oversized blazer from Two Point Two, teamed with a pair of neutral coloured pants for a chic menswear-inspired outfit that speaks for itself. This is what we call making a statement.
Style Tip: Try styling a blazer from your man’s closet and pair it with more minimal neutrals for a professional yet fashionable look that expresses your creativity.
2. Ananya Panday’s XXL Hoop Earrings
Say hello to the new take on the classic 70’s hoop earrings this season. Hoops never really went away but now they’re supersized to XXL proportions. Ananya has styled her printed blazer dress wonderfully with large gold textured hoops from Misho. The pulled-back ponytail makes her look fresh and allows the earrings to have their own moment while inserting that extra bit of oomph the outfit needed to look complete. One great thing about hoop earrings is that they go well with just about anything!
Style Tip: Think about the pattern and colours of your outfit and how you’re going to style your hair when picking out the right pair of earrings.
3. Rhea Kapoor’s Chain-link Necklace
Let the pro show you how this trend is done. Check out how Rhea has layered her chunky and elegant chain-link necklaces from the gorgeous RheaKapoorXPipaBella collection. The chain-link necklace is a statement piece that recently made a comeback this year. An accessory that can be easily styled with any outfit, they look great on their own or layered with other chains. Rhea has tastefully paired a gorgeous black off-shoulder velvet dress with these necklaces. This helps highlight her neckline and gives us that feeling of luxury with an edge.
Style Tip: Afraid to layer chunky necklaces? Try layering 2-3 chain-link necklaces in varying weights and lengths to get that softer luxe appeal for your décolletage.
4. Athiya Shetty’s Statement Mini Bag
Did you notice Athiya’s mini bag? It’s so tiny and cute! Bucket bags and mini bags with buckles are all the rage right now. We love how she’s nailed her cropped pantsuit outfit by introducing a silver Indian mini bag from Kunal Rawal, isn’t that exactly the twist this outfit needed?. How am I going to fit my phone in there you ask? Well, it’s barely big enough to sit on the palm of your hand so practicality isn’t the answer here. This truly is just a fun statement piece, if you don’t take yourself too seriously.
Style Tip: Pick a bag that has striking details to it and keep your outfit minimalistic so your bag has a moment to shine. Also, when styling a mini bag it helps to pair it with an outfit that already has pockets.
5. Deepika Padukone’s Wide-Leg Denim
Pants are really in this season with the oversized trend following us into 2020 as well. These include the likes of boot cuts, wide-leg fits and even mom jeans. Whew! This is one trend we can easily get behind especially during the summer months. Deepika looks amazing in everything but we’re especially in love with the way she’s styled her trendy wide-legged denim from Dhruv Kapoor with a darling white top with puffy sleeves. Keeping it simple yet utterly feminine and elegant, creating a stunning statement which speaks volumes.
Style Tip: Keep things simple and pair your trendy denim pants with a basic white t-shirt or tank and a thin belt. Perfect for those summer months ahead.
