5 celebrity uniforms that’ll be your saviour on days when you can’t decide what to wear
All the inspiration you need
One universal conflict that has plagued the lives of women since the beginning of time is the dilemma of choosing what to wear. A flirty floral maxi dress? An uncomplicated T-shirt and jeans set? A semi-formal shirt and culottes combo? Amidst a myriad options, it can become difficult to make the right choice on days you’re feeling doubtful, too bored to experiment or are simply running late. Play safe with these celebrity uniforms, as seen on Bollywood A-listers Priyanka Chopra, Alia Bhatt, Sonam Kapoor and more, who’ve found one style that works for them, and have unequivocally adopted them as their go-to look.
“Do I have a pattern? I think I do — I’m into dresses, and I love a good shoe,” Priyanka said recently. Midi dresses, stiletto heels, a classic bag (or a mini bag) and small sunglasses make up the Quantico actor’s look. Alia, on the other hand, stays true to her roots with Indian ethnicwear — think: kurta and salwar sets, complete with a dupatta, and accessories like the trendy hoop earrings.
One style you will always catch Sonam in? Supersized silhouettes and exaggerated sleeves. From gowns to jackets, she’s got them everywhere. Check out the gallery below for 5 celebrity uniforms that will save you on dreary days.
From Priyanka to Sonam: Celebrity uniforms for days you’re not feeling experimental:
Alia has recently taken to classic Indian ethnicwear, and she's tried everything from prints (Tarun Tahiliani's printed anarkali suit, Sabyasachi's floral printed kurta palazzo set) to monotone (dRzya by Ridhi's kurta salwar set and Abhinav Mishra's embellished kurta). Her constant accessory is a humble pair of earrings, with hoops being her favourite. Her choice in footwear ranges from stilettos, wedges and flats.
Where to wear: Daywear occasions like a mehendi or a sangeet ceremony.
Classic yet chic, Deepika's go-to look is a pair of jeans (wide-leg is her favourite), a T-shirt or a camisole, and a jacket. A pair of sunglasses is her usual accessory, and her footwear options include everything from pointed-toe heels to sneakers.
Where to wear: When you're travelling or for brunch dates with your girlfriends.
Over the last couple of months, Priyanka has solidified her daywear look as a dress (in floral prints and monotone shades) styled with heels and accessorised with a mini bag and small sunglasses.
Where to wear: From day occasions like lunches and meetings to evening parties.
For Sonam, her weakness is exaggerated shoulders and supersized sleeves, seen on pantsuits, gowns, shirts as well as gowns. Accessories are mostly minimal but a must — small hoops, stud earrings, chokers, drop-down earrings — and her choice in footwear is usually a pair of pointed-toe heels or flats.
Where to wear: Sundowner parties, night outs, formal occasions.
Janhvi's current favourite style statement is to wear a basic crop top (like a ribbed tee or a striped top) with high-waisted jeans and designer boots. What better way to flaunt your abs this summer?
Where to wear: Shopping sessions, movie outings and coffee dates.
