The world of fashion is governed by rules—Coco Chanel’s favourite? Take off one accessory before you leave the house—but it is also true that rules are made to be broken. If you have been sequestering your summery whites at the back of your wardrobe with the onset of the monsoon, allow Alia Bhatt to inspire you to break them free. No matter the occasion, she has the perfect outfit for anything that may come up on your social calendar:
Ivory Blazer And Pleated Pants For Morning Meetings
There’s nothing like a powerful OOTD to show that you mean business. But if you have been feeling the ennui with pantsuits, Bhatt recommends swapping the constrictive trousers for the fuss-free comfort of pleated pants for adding a dose of texture to your look.
White Silk Sari For Family Dinners
Leave the embroidered kurtas behind and instead allow yourself to fall in love with the timeless allure of a silk drape. For finishing touches, Bhatt likes to add a pop of colour to an all-white look—like the scarlet rose that she slid into her loosely defined waves.
White Blazer Layered Over A Corset Dress For Apres-Work Drinks
If you haven’t found your comfort level with bodycon dresses yet, take notes from Bhatt’s book and layer yours under a pristine blazer in a coordinated hue. Bonus points for keeping an eye out for unusual details, like the corset-style boning that highlighted her all-white number.
A Romantic White Gown For Date Nights
If you are looking to make a statement on a special dinner with your beau, a ballgown silhouette will help you channel your inner princess. Wear it off-shoulder with a few freshly plucked flowers tucked under your ears or pinch his white blazer to cosy up if your midnight stroll runs a little chilly.
An Embellished Mini For Club Nights
If you have a date on the dancefloor this weekend, Bhatt’s coordinated blazer and minidress won’t disappoint. Channel your inner rebel by offering a daywear look, like tweed, a party-ready update with pearl embellishments and a coordinated blazer.
