As the sun peeks out from behind the clouds of the pandemic and onto a vaccinated future, it is time to make up for all the lost summers spent indoors on the couch. The quest for inspiration can only lead you to Sara Ali Khan’s Instagram, a visual moodboard of eternal summer. A quick scroll, and you’ll find that the star loves her two-piece swimsuits and is the first to spot the newest trends on the horizon.
If you’ve been looking to give your vacay wardrobe an upgrade, here are the top swimwear trends that you’ll want to bring from her wardrobe into yours:
The easiest way to make heads turn on the beach is to invite a loud-and-proud dose of colour into your suitcase. The star loves her highlighter hues, but if you are yet to find your footing with vibrant hues, you can follow her lead and opt for a printed wrap-around to temper the colour.
Tie-dye is the trend that refuses to die, and your swimwear wardrobe will always be incomplete without a merry riot of colours. Follow her lead, and carry a slice of the Coachella magic with you all year round by opting for a psychedelic print that is guaranteed to get the double-taps rolling in.
Not a fan of tie-dye? Perhaps Ali Khan can interest you in a statement-making colour-blocked set instead. Opt for bright hues, add in a pair of chunky hoop earrings and once you are back from vacay, layer the top under a white blazer to add a pop of colour to Sunday brunch.
Another way to ensure that you keep monochrome monotony at bay is to reach for graphic prints—a comic-inspired print like Ali Khan’s will help you keep your inner child alive. Round out the look with your favourite pair of sunnies and load up on the SPF, and you are ready for a day of lounging by the pool.
After two years of cosying up indoors, you’ll want to add some homely touches to your vacay wardrobe as well. Ali Khan doesn’t need to be told twice, and was spotted rounding out her tangerine bikini with a crochet cover-up and shell necklace that can be easily DIYed as you enjoy the slow life by the beach.
