Kareena teaches us the new rules of brunch dressing

by Hasina Khatib

You’ve seen them dressed to the nines on the red carpet, but Bollywood’s shiniest stars do lowkey just as well. Case in point? Kareena Kapoor and her glam squad consisting of Karishma Kapoor, Malaika Arora Khan and Amrita Arora who’ve thrown the rulebook out of the window when it comes to off-duty style.

The ladies are taking power dressing to brunch, and here are the fashion diktats you need to follow:

Fuss-free hair

Perfectly coiffed ‘dos are so 90s. Give your blow-dryer a break and instead let your locks do their own thing au naturel.

Statement sunnies

Invest in a designer pair and hold them dear every time you’re headed out for a day out on the town with your girl squad. Not only do they make for excellent name-dropping, but they are also good at hiding the remnants of last night’s hangover.

Tote bag

The one time when size does matter; these hold-all bags are useful for stashing everything from books for your impromptu book club meeting to a change of shoes to take you from desk to drinks.

Graphic tees

For those days when you aren’t sufficiently awake for witty punchlines and comebacks, let your t-shirt do all the talking.

Minimal make-up

Sunday brunch is the one time when you can afford to give your skin a much-needed breather from all the products. Swipe on your favourite bright lipper instead and you’re good to go.

Even lesser accessories

Turn a stern back to your jewellery kit and stick to the memo for casual dressing sans accessories. (Okay, you are allowed one statement ring if you absolutely must.)

Comfy footwear

Give your pencil heels the day off and instead explore the fun world of flats, from blingy espadrilles to colourful sneakers.
