When it comes to our Bollywood divas, there’s no doubt that our fashionistas can easily switch between their bling-treated ethnic ensembles, red-carpet couture, and even the best of high-street garb.
As the paparazzi follows them no end, we get to see how they turn up across promotional events, glam dos and even as they travel and switch between airports. As we all rejoice in knowing that we have the freedom to wear sneakers with dresses (three cheers!), here’s B-town giving us some more style lessons and loads of inspiration for fashion that is effortless, casual and super sporty. Got a favourite?
Deepika Padukone loves her pair of white sneakers as much as her high-heeled red soles. And, when it comes to styling, this beauty gets it right more often than not. The glint-high chevron jersey-style topper brought in the luxe factor in this otherwise super sporty ensemble. And the beauty angle to it? The addition of the ponytail that brings in the fun factor.
When in doubt, layer it up ladies. Here’s some Sonam Kapoor style inspiration when you don’t feel like donning that dress. We love how the actor played casual chic with her sporty tee topped with the plaid-style, all-over stripes. And, if you thought sporty could not be glamorous, here’s some food for thought. Luxurious curls and a prominent red lip can bring in the glam.
Here’s Esha Gupta giving us multiple bouts of envy and a big dose of fashion inspiration. The effortless vibe the look exudes brings in the sporty flavour, and gives you inspiration for what to wear when you are travelling. Comfort is a big factor when we speak about fashion that is sporty cool, and Esha looks pretty comfortable (and fashionable!) in her fun slogan tee and snug-fit pants.
We don’t match
A bold graphic tee, cute dotted pants and a checkered shirt-to-go. Not to forget tangerine mirrored glasses and stacked bracelets — sounds like a big mish-mash? Well, it is, but who says it can’t work? Here’s Shruti Haasan doing some devil-may-care sporty as she shifts between terminals. If you want to turn the look down a notch, skip the accessories, except of course, the killer shades.
Here’s Sonakshi Sinha, mixing it up! A pair of distressed denims, a top that shows off her shoulders and all topped with a cap-to-go. This New York Yankees baseball cap is quite a celeb favourite, and we like how Sona styles it casual-perfect. With the addition of the thick-framed black glasses, she completes the look with a flavour of geeky chic, which is in fashion!
