Picking on its summer-perfect vibe, Bollywood beauties are going the Brigitte Bardot way with off-shoulder, ruffled tops. Here’s the celeb brigade, doing it their own way. Inspired by French fashion icon and sex symbol Brigitte Bardot, the pleated off-shoulder top made its debut in the 50s and 60s. Here’s a glimpse of Bardot’s classic style (below)

Feeling the 80s
Leave it up to Lisa Haydon to mix it up like a pro. We love the lace choker and the perfect Bardot style top. See the hint of gold? Disco perfect!

Get the look: If you are Lisa-inspired, don’t be afraid to add metallic accents to your look. If gold pants don’t float your boat, pick up 80s-inspired chunky earrings in gold or a fun silver bracelet. And of course, DIY-ing with a piece of lace is something you should definitely try.

Pleated perfect

Actor Shraddha Kapoor’s styling is interesting. The temp tattoo-inspired neckbrace is adding a fun dimension to the look. While we personally prefer the cropped version, Kapoor’s pulling this look off!

Get the look: If you like keeping it basic on a first date, pick up a pleated Bardot top in classic white and pair it with a fool-proof pair of denims. And of course, there’s nothing that a red lip can’t spruce up!

Cropped cool
Actor Sonakshi Sinha highlighted her collarbones, pairing her Bardot top with a black midi. While the look is easy-breezy, the style works across occasions. This one’s for a fashion week showcase, and it works for us because of the no-fuss hair and the dewy makeup. The coral lip and gold tinted hue offsets the look perfectly.

Get the look: Here’s an example of how the choice of makeup can also make an outfit shine. While the gold accents might come off as harsh on certain people, if the tones are well selected (check out Sona’s eyes), it can make your white Bardot-style pick stand out.

Summer diva
This summer-perfect look is a winner for us! The chocolate hued freewheeling bob paired with the cherry lip offsets actor Prachi Desai’s look perfectly. The Bardot-inspired top here is a cropped version, adorned with noodle straps. Steal the style and show off that neck even if you have tumbling tresses. A high ponytail or a low-placed knot at the nape will work wonders.

Get the look: We love the fresh vibe Prachi exudes in this look. Pair your Bardot top with a breezy maxi skirt, high on colour, to add that Coachella vibe. If you are not big fans of the barely-there straps (and would not risk that tan!), pick up a summer jacket in a fabric that breathes and add more colour.
