The petite singer often buys shoes from the children’s section. But her dresses need to be tailored to fit

Tulsi Kumar is known for singing romantic numbers like Soch Na Sake (Airlift; 2016), Tum Jo Aye (Once Upon A Time In Mumbai; 2010), Tu Hai Ki Nahi (Roy; 2015). Much like her songs are music to the ears, her closet is a feast for the eyes. Kumar, dressed in a green crop top and a pair of denim shorts, gives a walk-through.

Style statement: “I like the cute, girl-next-door look but I can play around with being classy. I prefer being minimalistic with my look. So, you’ll find a lot of fun and cute stuff in my closet.”

Collector’s items: “I collect a lot of shoes — I have at least 70 pairs. I get them from the children’s section at times since I have small feet. I also like collecting dresses, but I’m finicky about the fit. Since I have a petite frame, I have to tailor-make all my clothes so they are of the right fit and length.”

Pastels please: “I like matte, soft colours. You’ll see a lot of feminine hues. I don’t wear deep colours. Pastels dominate my wardrobe.”

Kumar’s Hermes Berkin bag is the most expensive bag she’s purchased

Shop till you drop: “I am a shopping freak. If I go to a mall, I have to come out purchasing something. My Hermès Birkin bag and my Stella McCartney shoes have been my most lavish purchases. I also shop from Net-a-Porter and the Selfridges websites.”

Brand value: “I love dresses from Self Portrait. Their cuts and fit flatter my body type. Zara stocks a lot of trendy outfits for every day. For casuals, it has to be Miss Selfridge.”

As you like it: “I usually go for one statement accessory and keep the rest of the look simple. For my stage performances, I like to have a single bling element. I generally get all my style tips from my sister, Khushali, who has trained me well on what looks good on me and what I should be avoiding.”
