With monsoon in full swing, we are sure your search for a perfect skirt has begun. Bollywood divas' fashion sense is always on point and can easily be looped in our day-to-day dressing. Here are a few types of skirts that are ageless and can be styled in a number of ways.
Buttoned-Down, Patent Leather Skirt
A leather skirt might not fit in your usual wardrobe choice for monsoon but, when you have to glam up, you got to compromise with your comfort. Leather skirts are available out there in an array of sizes, silhouettes and textures. And this Madison walnut brown skirt sported by Parineeti makes it to our monsoon trend wheel. Think high heels, collared shirts or strapless blouses and you are set to take over the dance floor.
Pleated Metallic Skirts
They were a rage last season and are set to make a comeback. Bollywood biggies such as Alia, Deepika and Shruti have already given their welcome nod to this not-so-regular version of a knee-length skirt. Though they are good enough to become a monsoon staple, what makes them cool is their ageless appeal. From pairing with a regular white t-shirt to bra-top, they can be looped in your daily look in a number of ways.
For all the maximalists and high fashion aficionados, a skirt might not be very fulfilling but thanks to Sabyasachi and Manish Arora for giving us some serious mood board inspiration and colouring our monsoon in brights. For inspiration, we don’t have to dig deep, our very own answer to Blake Lively, Sonam Kapoor paired a crisp white shirt with a smart Manish Arora skirt while Deepika picked up a similar skirt by Sabyasachi.
Micros in striking hues to skirts inspired by saree drapes, this monsoon is all about making bold fashion choices. Shilpa is not the first one to make a statement by picking up an out-of-the-box monsoon staple. Jacqueline also slipped into a bright red Balmain for H&M satin-finished skirt some time ago. The look is still fresh and can once again be looped in, just in case you want to conjure up the party girl in you. Another fashion powerhouse who has time and again rested her faith on a statement skirt is Priyanka Chopra. Among her velvet waist cinching micros to thigh-high slit leathers, this Zimmer pleated number stole the attention.
Buttoned Down Denim Skirt
Casual, rugged and trans-seasonal, there is no better way of summing up a denim skirt. And Bollywood certainly agrees. From being Kriti’s preferred airport staple while travelling to Shraddha Kapoor’s too-cool-for-school choice at the red carpet, denim skirts have graduated from street to couture.
