When it comes to the statement-making impact of denim, there’s no such thing as too much of a good thing. Just ask Bollywood’s finest who take their denim in every way possible, often layered twice in the same look. With summer well and truly upon us, you’ll want to make the most of this staple with denim-on-denim pairings—allow Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor Khan and more to show you how.

Deepika Padukone

The Gehraiyaan star had been serving a slew of high-impact looks for the movie’s promotions, but she made a notable departure from evening glam for this easy-breezy outfit that marries the season’s top trends into one cohesive look: bodysuit, coordinated track pants and some cutouts for a peekaboo flash of skin.

Kareena Kapoor Khan

When you are looking to level things up, you’ll want to take notes from Kapoor Khan who took hers with a tone-on-tone pairing for good measure. Remember the time she buttoned a denim vest over acid-washed jeans? Loop in some layered necklaces around your neck, and you’ll be good to go.

Sara Ali Khan

Or perhaps you’d like to take your love for denim to the boardroom? Ali Khan knows how—with a cropped jacket and trousers. Finished off with button detailing, you can wear the coordinated set together or swap the jacket for a casual buttondown when the mercury starts climbing the charts.

Athiya Shetty

A denim shirt over coordinated jeans may be the oldest trick in the fashion book, but Shetty gave hers an elevated spin by cinching in the waist with tie detailing. Follow her lead, and reach for a pair of oversized hoops and a swept-back hairdo as finishing touches.

Kiara Advani

Denim goes disco, as it usually does in Advani’s hands who is known to favour an embellished take on this everyday staple. The star tucked a buttondown into a slouchy pair, with a side helping of pearl embellishments for maximum impact.
