White as a colour in our wardrobes that is flattering, easy to wear, perfect for every occasion, and guarantees the wearer an undeniable sense of cool. Don’t believe us? Just take a quick look at these Bollywood actresses' sartorial archives, and an all-white look will immediately start making sense to you.
Here are 7 different ways you can look the best in white. So, scroll on to get inspired.
If you're all about matchy pieces, pairing a plain white shirt with matching pants like Deepika Padukone is definitely up your alley; plus, it'll take you, like, five minutes to pick it out and put it on. Accessorize your look with a pair of ivory pumps and a pair of diamond earrings before heading out. You can elevate your look with a swipe of red lips, kohl and softly curled hair like DP did. This look is perfect for both offices or casual outings with friends.
If you are someone who likes experimenting with unpredictable patterns, this look could be your best bet. Here, Sonam Kapoor is seen wearing a white sari patterned with vibrant red masks all over it. She styled her saree with a high-neck blouse featuring full sleeves, and a pair of traditional jhumkas, and a statement gold necklace by Amrapali Jewels. For her makeup, she opted for red lips, winged eyeliner, and a super sleek ponytail adorned with red flowers.
If you’ve been looking for a classic white shirt that works for both formal meetings and brunch outings with girlfriends, try recreating this look of Alia Bhatt. Pick a puffy white top and style it with a pair of balloon jeans and white sneakers. Keep your makeup minimal and your hair open.
Want to try something 'hatke'? Take cues from fashionista Kareena Kapoor. Pick a knotted white shirt and pair it with a pair of relaxed beige trousers to complete your look. Leave your hair open or tie them in a messy bun, keep your accessories and makeup minimal and you’re all set to grab everyone's attention! You can replicate this look for a casual outing with friends.
Here, Kareena is seen proving that white is no longer restricted to day occasions. For the Jashne-E-Youngistaan awards in November 2018, Kareena Kapoor Khan wore a snowy chiffon saree that was accentuated with a delicate crystal-laced border. Her saree was covered in small buttis and she styled it with a v-neck blouse. The diva paired her white drape with diamond and emerald earrings that instantly added a pop of colour to her outfit. She left her hair loose and rounded off her look with smoky eyes and glossy nude lips. If you are planning to replicate this look for a cocktail party or a reception pencilled in your calendar later in the year, pick a plain white saree and pair it with an embellished blouse.
Got a cocktail party to attend after lockdown? If yes, take cues from Katrina Kaif. For an event, Katrina Kaif stepped out in a pristine white gown from Australian fashion designer Alex Perry’s resort 2020 collection. The gown featured a thigh-high slit, plunging neckline, bishop sleeves, and draped detailing on the bottom. Katrina rounded off her look with a pair of statement-making diamond earrings by Sapna Mehta and subtle makeup and let her attire do all the talking!
You have seen striped dresses/ shirts/ t-shirts everywhere, and they are not going away anytime soon. Trust me. Since the pattern gives uber chic and refreshing summer vibes, you can pair a white striped tee with anything. Here, Anushka Sharma styled it with light-washed jeans and a delicate gold necklace.
