The not-such-a-newcomer to the Bollywood industry was as quick as getting to the list of the best-dressed as she was in turning heads with her acting. Even with a very girl-next-door kind of style, it would be a shame to not highlight her prominent penchant for statement Indian-wear. When she is not spotted outside her gym in her envy-worthy workout-wear, the actor most often dons traditional clothes. Her love for bright cotton kurtas featuring a plethora of prints is unmissable. Whether she is jet-setting, grabbing coffee or going for brunches to her favourite restaurant, shararas, palazzos and kurtas serve as her go-to outfit options.
With a taste so chic in kurta sets, Janhvi Kapoor also has a discerning eye for jaw-dropping Indian pieces like sarees and lehengas. When it comes to dressing for festive occasions or making appearances at other star-studded events, Janhvi leans heavily towards heavily embellished outfits. Like her Manish Malhotra, muted pink, sequin saree or her lustrous golden lehenga set featuring a dramatic, plunging neckline. Want a peek inside her envy-inducing traditional wardrobe? Keep scrolling!
“Can I live in a saree?” the actor asked her fans and followers in an Instagram post and we can safely say: yes Janhvi, go for it! Sensuous numbers with sweetheart necklines or deep, plunging ones are the actor’s favourite choices. While draping a saree, her agenda for the same is quite simple: six yards of sheer sexiness. With a clear affinity to shine bright and stand out in the crowd, sequins and crystals are a mainstay in her saree department. She also favours tasteful embroidery and mirror work when she wants to accentuate her look by skipping on embellishments.

Throwback to the stunnnnerrrr @janhvikapoor in this flaming @manishmalhotra05 @mmalhotraworld sari which he conceptualised and customised for us one a very short deadline! The one thing anyone will vouch for is that his fits are perfect in the first fitting itself and usually we need to do very minor alterations if at all. This look was costyled with @miloni_s91 @teammrstyles #MRStyles #teammrstyles #MRStylesRewind #janhvikapoor
“Subtlety is clearly not my thing” as confessed by the actor only goes to show her love for two elements: flamboyance and extravagance when it comes to lehengas. She does not shy from being on a sartorial pedestal in the room. So, to ensure the same, she either drowns herself in all things shiny—think head-to-toe mirror work, beads, crystals or picks striking colours. And sometimes, she opts for a clash of prints by ways of appliqué or hand-stitched embroidery. Scroll ahead to check out some of her stunning, designer pieces she most-definitely made a statement in.
The actor effortlessly oscillates between hot-shorts and cropped-tops to babydoll dresses to comfortable kurta sets. But her off-duty wardrobe mostly comprises a myriad of sharara + kurta combos, anarkalis and more. And the consistency in all of her kurta sets is that none of them will ever bore you given that they always blend two or more colours; never dull, clash prints and come in interesting silhouettes!
