If you’re tired of seeing bold, saturated highlighter hues and neon-everything wherever you turn, it might be time to cleanse your sartorial palate with a classic celebrity styling trick: white on white on white. While it may seem obvious for summer, if you’re looking for reasons to invite this airy hue into your trans-seasonal wardrobe, Bollywood’s finest have all the inspiration you need.
For Your Back-to-Office Look
With the rollout of the vaccine enabling offices to cautiously open again, it is time to start planning your grand return to the boardroom. Allow your hunt to be guided by Kareena Kapoor Khan’s take on the head-to-toe white trend consisting of a pussy-bow blouse and trousers complete with a wide belt. As a finishing touch, add some white to your palette with pearl drop earrings for a look that is instantly elevated and endlessly sophisticated.
For Art Gallery-Hopping On The Weekends
Let your creative streak surge forth for a weekend of taking in art—Sonam Kapoor Ahuja knows just how you can fit in with the creative crowd. Follow her lead and opt for a starch-white maxi that can be elevated with a few simple styling tricks. For starters, swap those diamond studs in favour of a pop of colour, like her chunky gold layered necklaces. If you’re looking to add some definition to your silhouette, knotting a rope belt will help you stand taller.
For Brunch With The Girls
Thought brunch was for tropical prints and flirty hemlines? Step back while Deepika Padukone convinces you to rethink all you know about brunch dressing. For a previous stint at Cannes, the star traded in the neon hues in favour of a soothing all-white look. Her secret for keeping wardrobe ennui at bay? Getting creative with your choice of texture. For a leisurely daytime stroll, she opted for a sheer top and trousers in a coordinated hue, cinched at the waist with a rope belt. Add a pair of tinted sunnies and nude heels, and you’re good to go.
For A Friend’s Wedding
If you’ve got summer weddings to attend, it’s time to take cues from Jacqueline Fernandez’s go-to hue: power white, served in the form of a classic sari. The star had previously opted for a sheer number for close friend Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s wedding, and she gave the trend another spin recently in a lace sari. What makes her look stand out from the crowd, however, is the finishing touches: with a blouse featuring interesting cutouts for bringing sexy back, she finished the look with a retro-inspired winged eye and a statement emerald necklace.
For Date Night
Put that LBD away and allow hues of cream and ivory to move to the forefront of your date night lineup instead. Further inspiration can be found with Priyanka Chopra Jonas who was spotted enjoying a night out on the town in a failsafe classic: a slip dress. With a plunging back and thigh-high slit, the dress slides from demure to daring with effortless ease. Top off your look with a pair of chunky gold heels that will ensure heads turn your way wherever you go.
