Anushka Sharma’s pretty dresses from India’s England tour are so far from ordinary

The best kinds of outfits are the ones that are easy to pull together, while still looking meticulously stylish. Take Anushka Sharma’s latest looks for example. The actor has been giving us a lot of sartorial goodness on her UK vacation and proving that sometimes an elegant and minimal dress makes one heck of a fashionable ensemble.

Anushka is currently travelling with cricketer-husband Virat Kohli, who is playing in the ongoing India-England series. And with every appearance, Anushka is making a case for an easy throw-on utilitarian print dress (in knee or above the knee lengths), one of the most classic wardrobe staples any woman can own. Dress it up, dress it down, wear it to the office all week long (different dresses, of course) and have fun with its versatility.

Anushka lends a decidedly cool, fresh aesthetic to casual-chic celebrity travel style, complete with (tastefully) lacy dresses and It accessories (off-the-moment hoop earrings), while still staying perfectly appropriate for every occasion she’s attending. With her every look, Anushka’s showing how styling a printed dress is insanely easy. You can throw the dress on with some dark sunglasses and white sneakers, and walk all day, attending matches, grabbing meals and so on. At its core, Anushka’s style has a no-frills vibe.

Below, we’ve got six ways to wear a dress like Anushka Sharma.

Polka dots are having a major moment in 2018. With some of our favourite stars, like Malaika Arora, Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan, putting their own sartorial spin on the classic print, it’s safe to say the ubiquitous dot is making a thoroughly modern mark. And with this playful black and white dress with supersize spots, Anushka showed exactly how to wear the print without looking overly prim. Simply finish the look with some casual (white sneakers) and edgy (round retro sunnies) accessories to toughen up the ultra-feminine print.

As far as prints go, stripes are a crowd favourite. But on the hunt for something new? This Anushka Sharma dress proves stripes are classic, timeless, chic, and look great dressed up or down. The effortless print horizontal stripes on her dress exude a spring and summer vibe. Simply add flats, like Anushka, for your easiest weekend look. Keep your look clean and pair this cool dress with minimal jewellery and make-up.

We love the juxtaposition of flirty (lace) and fierce (black) in the design of Anushka’s maxi. If you’re running around during the day, pair it with sneakers or boots and a colourful crossbody bag. In the warmer months, opt for slides and a pair of sunnies. You can also dress this piece up for an evening event with strappy heels and a matching clutch.

We can’t get enough of Anushka’s baby blue look. Choose a similar belted shirtdress for a comfy weekend look that’s perfect for a Sunday brunch, and a little more polished than jeans at the office. Anushka’s pretty belted shirtdress is surprisingly versatile: At the office, pair it with a stole or cardigan loosely draped over your shoulders and a pair of flats, and then transition the dress to be happy hour-appropriate by ditching the cardigan for a leather jacket and swapping your flats for a pair of platform sandals.

Follow Anushka’s sartorial choice and try an A-line dress in a funky floral print for the perfect springtime look. A printed dress like hers is an easy one-step solution to achieving a look that is simultaneously polished and cool. We love the bold red, blue and green on this dress and would love to wear it to brunch with a denim jacket and wedges. Anushka looks somehow quirky, still businesslike.

If there’s ever been a more perfectly summer outfit, please show us. For an outing in London with Virat, Anushka wore this sweet black and white-print dress with a ruffle detail around the neck for a dose of girly appeal. For accessories, Anushka picked retro-ish sunglasses and a pair of white sneakers.
