Our B-town girls are a source of fashion inspiration, and they show us new trends quite chic and pretty now and then. But sometimes they too go over the top in their ensembles and looks, but they do know how to carry them off as well. It all depends on the attitude and personality, which are the pillars of looking every bit the editorial muse of a fashion magazine on a daily note; irrespective of what you wear. So here are a couple of our favourite celebrities flaunting the non-traditional Indian wear and silhouettes. Check them out!
1. Dhoti pants and asymmetrical kurtis
Celebrities back in the 90s flaunted this look like there was no tomorrow, and then it faded out of the scene. But as they say “fashion is a vicious circle”, which is why dhoti pants are back to pair up with chic asymmetrical tops this time. Bright warm colored asymmetrical tops with or without embellishments can be worn with neutral toned dhoti pants to balance the look. Go further and doll up the eyes with a smokey touch and dark kohl, and complete the look with a clutch in hand in neutral to metallic tones- on the lines of the asymmetrical kurti worn.
2. Long skirts with longer kurtis
Summers in India can be unforgiving, and don’t our celebrities know that all too well just as much as we do? This is why designers across the nation have come up with street style pizzazz to add to the oomph factor; marrying long kurtis off with equally long flowy chic skirts. A fashion hit for sure, the top rests and falls generously over the knee or below it too, bringing about a cool chick chic look! Makeup wise, play with the nude look with foundation and blush closest to your skin tone and light brown kohl for the eyes. Leave the hair loose and carry a tote bag or a chic hand bag for company.
3. High Slit kurtis and fitted pants
Wondering what to wear at your bestie’s sangeet ceremony? Without stealing the thunder around at the event, the look we bring to you is a very chic one. High slit kurtis and fitted pants, in cool toned shades for the top and neutral metallic chic tones for the bottoms, when paired with heels or pumps, makes for a spicy effect to flaunt. Embellish the hair with a passa or a maangtikka, leaving the hair in a messy low bun. Wear gorgeous smokey eyes and hot red lips that balances the look, and carry a clutch in metallic tones matching the hue of your ensemble.
4. Lehenga and crop tops
Lehengas are those regal Indian and versatile garments that look impeccably stylish when paired with classy crop tops. From pairing a heavily embroidered or flower printed lehenga with irresistible styles of lace or net crop tops to wearing over-the-top lehengas with zari, bling or stone-studded crop tops, they surely make for an irresistible combination. Complete the look with ethnic hairdos embellished with flowers on the hair or a chic hair accessory. Makeup wise you would want to keep the eyes dark and rimmed black, with red hot lips or peach-pink glossy lips. A clutch in hand with ethnic embroidery and gorgeous heels for the feet are a must-wear.
5. Gorgeous cocktail saree gowns
Not necessarily that one has to wear a saree or a salwar suit for the special cocktail gatherings on a summer night- you could think of the saree style gown in sequence and silks as the best ensemble to wear and make a grand statement with. It’s one fashion rage which has been shown in many exquisite ways by various eminent Indian designers, such as Tarun Tahiliani and Sonaakshi Raj. A cross between the regal and royal essence of gown and grace and class of a saree. Choose pretty powdery coloured saree gowns with high-fashion sequins work that have intricate embroidery on the sleeves and the midriff, and wear the ensemble with metallic pumps for the feet to complete the look. For the eyes, we would look at smokey metallic dark eyes and hot blushed cheeks with glossy red lips for the sensual touch to come through. Hair should be tied into a low bun or left loose, but with chic hair accessories such as a maang tikka to enhance the desi touch is a must.
