Malaika Arora is proof that jeans and a white T-shirt is never basic
Has Malaika Arora ever taken a sartorial step wrong? Probably not. The former VJ has an ability to rock an itsy-bitsy polka-dot shorts from TopShop, a gargantuan Manish Malhotra couture gown and simple gym workout clothes, all with the same nonchalant ease.
Malaika’s latest street-cool look spotted outside a Mumbai salon on Friday has us lusting over her wardrobe more than ever. It’s weekend casual done oh-so-well. The trick with how Malaika gets it just right is all in the detail.
Here’s the photo evidence.
First, the close-up:
Second, the full look:
Look to the cut of Malaika’s box-fresh white T-shirt. The sleeves are capped and the neckline keyhole brings an added air of refinement, while taking this tee from casual to tantalizing.
With a jaunty turn up, Malaika’s flared blue jeans provide a knowing sense of style. The front-button denims came with a raw-edge hem. In contrast with her immaculate T-shirt and jeans combo, her well-worn black wedge slippers make sure it doesn’t feel contrived but more like, “Oh me? I just threw this on.”
That all being said, you just can’t ignore the hero of this look: Malaika’s salon-fresh hair. The cotton canvas and calfskin tote bag ($ 955 or ₹65,388) from Balenciaga is cute too.
Jeans and a white T-shirt have become staples in every girl’s closet. But if you wish to add a dose of style to the classic, take a tip from actor Deepika Padukone, who’s always on the go, and tie up your tee to reveal your high-waisted denim. Make a sporty look slightly more edgy-meets-sophisticated by finishing your slogan tee with oversize dark sunglasses, à la Deepika.
