Deepika Padukone shows you how to style your favourite dress for colder weather
Transitional wardrobe for the win
Deepika Padukone spends half her life on a plane jet-setting between different time zones, so you know the Bollywood actress is a dab hand at repurposing her wardrobe to suit the occasion/climate/time of day. And just like you, she’s not about to let the cooler winds of November deter her from wearing her favourite summer dress. So what does Deepika do? Unbutton the front of the dress to turn it into a floor-length jacket, throw on a pair of distressed jeans and call it a day.
Wearing dresses over pants is a trend we’ve seen more and more of among the fashionable members of the movie industry and its benefits are two-fold. Forgot to shave your legs? Dresses aren’t off limits wit this styling trick. It also combines the dramatic appeal of a full-length dress with the practicality of a T-shirt-and-jeans look, which is perfect for those lazy days when you really don’t want to be spending too much time figuring out what to wear.
No wonder Jacqueline Fernandez, Alia Bhatt and Anushka Sharma are all card-carrying members of Deepika’s dress-over-pants club.
5 ways celebrities are styling the dress-over-pants look
Elsewhere, Alia Bhatt made the trend red carpet-worthy by pairing her high-low Monique Lhuillier number with sleek black leggings.
Anushka Sharma’s ripped denims help keep the interest alive under a semi-buttoned tunic.
The dress-over-pants trend can work in some easy glam too. Shraddha Kapoor matched her fringe Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna number with black denims and high boots.
Since it’s all too easy for a pair of denims to get lost under a flared dress, a high slit helped Deepika Padukone show off some leg.
As with all good things in life, you can’t have the best of both worlds. If your dress is voluminous, opt for fitted leggings like Jacqueline Fernandez, and vice versa.
