Did someone say revenge dressing? After two years clustered indoors, you’ll want to let your party wardrobe breathe free again. And all roads for sartorial inspiration can only lead to Kiara Advani, Bollywood’s resident expert of all things bling. While she loves her sequinned numbers, the star also knows how to turn around a winning look after a long day of shoots with a few nifty styling tricks.
We took a closer look at her wardrobe and here are the lessons that we learned:
Lose The Shirt
If you are looking to make the transition from desk to drinks with ease, you’ll want to make note of Advani’s style hack: simply lose the shirt from underneath your blazer and belt it over a chainmail mini to add some sparkle to your look.
Play With Proportions
To ensure that all eyes stay on your showstopper gown, it helps to ensure a sense of balance in your proportions. Allow the sheer number to have its time in the spotlight and opt for a minimalist approach to accessories, like the dainty choker Advani rounded out her look with.
If you’d like to invite a peekaboo flash of skin into your look without going too risqué, follow in Advani’s footsteps and opt for the one-two punch of an oversized blazer in a saturated hue draped lazily over a blingy mini.
Skip The Usual Suspects
On those nights when you’re looking to stand out in the crowd, it helps to break free from the pack. Love sequins? Why not swap the usual minis in favour of a tricked-out jumpsuit to invite a hint of androgyny into your look.
Say Yes To Sparkle
Even a monochrome pantsuit can look party-ready with the right finishing touches in Advani’s playbook. For further inspiration, look no further than the monochrome pantsuit that she livened up with kitted-out heels in a coordinated hue and a flash of diamonds on her fingers.
