    Following trends blindly is certainly a sign of an outdated fashion vocabulary. Fortunately, Kalki Koechlin is one star who never fails when it comes to refurbishing her style canvass.  For many, she is a naturally beautiful woman but at times what people tend to forget is her adventurous attitude when it comes to fashion. She is a true blue fashion maverick.

    At a time when the whole of Bollywood was going gaga over backless gowns, she was the one who sported pantsuits with ‘hasthphools’. How can we ever forget her daring attitude (case in point -  read a turban paired with her Sabyasachi gown). If we go digging references to her style perfection there are many. There are times when she channels her inner demure Indian woman too. Nobody can rock an ethnic ensemble or a saree like her.

    With so much on the table,  how can we not seek some style lessons from Kalki? Here are a few to help you out in case you are having a wardrobe conundrum.

    When Nothing Works, Red Does

    Red is a colour of passion and tradition. Though most of the people relate reds to festivities there are moments when you can wear red with great panache. If you are heading for a dinner date, it is time to get rid of traditional sarees or even suits. You can always go for a sexy red dress. Also, you can have fun with the piece. You do not have pick a run of the mill dress, go for a sexy one-shouldered or a backless number and you will be sorted. Also, do not forget to compliment your look with a clean bun and classic red lips. Take cues from Kalki ladies, doesn’t she look ravishing in this Gaurav Gupta gown. What do you say?

    Do Not Shy Away From Head To Toe Stripes


    The simple traditional sari has come a long way. It is no more an insignia of just family values. Just like the iconic ‘Birkin’ bag, saree too is a status symbol now and why not. From Avavila’s linen saris to Sabyasachi’s gorgeous floral one’s one has a lot to choose from. Kalki never steps back when it comes to sarees and here we can see her sporting a head-to-toe striped look. Most of the times women tend to avoid this trend, overthinking about their body shape and occasion. We suggest stripes can be fun. There are a very few ladies who can pull ahead to toe stripes trend, for the ones who get intimidated, we suggest pair it with simples single toned pieces and go ahead.

    Black trench coats have forever been an insignia of power dressing but take cues from Kalki who schools on how to do it with a white Nikita Mhaisalkar trench. In case you are too intimidated to try a trench pick a floor length white shrug to go with your dress or palazzos. Many people shy away from white, thinking it makes them look voluminous, but if styled to perfection, white can do wonders. We suggest pairing it for a cool night out with friends and belt it up.

    Sari Without A Cape? NO WAY
