Speaking of the 90’s, one name that resonates continuously is Birthday girl Karisma Kapoor. From her high octane glamour loaded screen image to a red carpet queen, her fashion trajectory has seriously matured. The mother of two, thought might not be the busiest one to appear on screen, is still one of the strongest fashion fixtures to take over our fashion radar. It is not just her ethereal Anamika Khanna pieces, Sabyasachi sarees or Abu Jani white, ethnic pieces, she rocks a sexy skirt and a pair of denim with equal élan. In case you doubt her fashion prowess, here are a few times when she slayed it as a real fashion star.

Florals Forever

Summers have become synonymous to florals and what better than an ethnic floral ensemble to pair with a blouse in a striking hue. Among those heavy embroidered bridal pieces, Karisma stood out in her gorgeous organza silk Sabyasachi lehenga paired with a graceful green blouse. And to complete her look, she picked up a stunning polka choker. If they say, simplicity is everything may be Karisma can be a great example.  

Bohemian It Is

When nothing works, you can always indulge in some flowy summer pieces and you are set. Who says, maxis are ideal for summers, you need to get over them and pick up pieces in languid silhouettes. We love this rust coloured piece by Sakshi Kinni on Karisma and the dual-toned appeal of the gown does it all. In case you want to ditch your saree and make sure that your evenings are glam, may be this is the look you need to try. Also, for all the women out there, who think age is a number to consider, may be not. You can always take cues from Karisma when in doubt. Pick up something camouflaging and you are set.

White Is Here To Stay


In case your friend’s getting married, then an interesting white number can be of use. We love this not-so-heavy Sukriti and Akriti ensemble rocked by Karisma. Not only is it very season-appropriate but it also performs the balancing act of keeping festive vibes up.

Metallic Skirts? Yes, please…


If you were in a bracket who thinks skirts are not happening for women your age, maybe you need to think twice. Be it leather, denim or a high slit one, skirts are certainly meant for women of all age. It just depends what you pair it with. We love this metallic skirt paired with a patent bomber jacket and the parakeet motif does it for Karisma. One might come to think of the colour coordination, it is nothing less than classic.

The belted detailing with a sleeveless shrug like a cover, is adding character to the look. It is not the just the classic combination of black and white that stands out, the way, Karisma channels her inner diva is something to look upto. Ladies take notes.
