Recently, the Gen-Z Kapoor girls Shanaya and Khushi Kapoor made their social media accounts public, giving the world a glimpse into their aesthetically-curated internet lives. The first cousins made their Insta debut one after the other, receiving the nod of approval from their fashion-forward sisters Sonam and Rhea Kapoor.
While they both belong to the same Tik-Tok and iced-coffee loving Gen-Z age-group, their styles are contrasting; Shanaya’s sartorial sense is sporty-chic with a hint of glam, while Khushi channels trends from the ’90s and blends it with her signature grunge aesthetic. The former is all about sporting her OOTD in popular Insta-poses, the latter prefers zoomed-in beauty shots of her cosy fits and makeup. Think Euphoria meets Spanish drama Elite.
Here’s our edit of the top 8 looks you can recreate inspired by these Gen-Z fashion enthusiasts.
Taking the vest-over-shirt trend up a notch, Khushi styled her oversized white shirt by layering it with a beige sweater. Perfect for a day out during the current chilly weather. Team it with a pair of white converse and an itty-bitty bag, and you're good to go.
Ideal for a casual night around town, Shanaya opted for a striped bomber jacket and short set, teamed it with a mini bag and a braided chain necklace. Planning a low-key movie night look? Here's one you can easily recreate.
Want to imitate the popular '90s scarf top trend, do it with a modern spin just like Khushi Kapoor did. Pair your scarf top with a tailored oversized trouser instead of low-rise jeans, and ditch the glitter makeup and funky hair accessories for some au-natural glam and round-framed tinted glasses.
Wondering how to up your beach vacation style? Swap your regular summer dress for a printed co-ordinated set. For an extra factor of oomph, opt for a centre-front tie-up silhouette. Finish the look with a pair of flipflops and a cross-body coin purse for a perfect day by the ocean.
Amplify your basic white shirt dress by styling it with a tan belt and a vintage saddlebag. For a more formal setting, team it with a pair of tan pumps; if not, chunky dad sneakers remain to be the most versatile shoes this season.
When its Sunday brunch but you want to make a statement, elevate the glamour quotient like Shanaya. Club a sequined corset top with a pair of high-waisted denim shorts. To give it a further edge, wear oversized hoops, chunky chains, and wrap it up with a low-sleek bun.
The perfect middle-ground between a bodycon and a flared dress is the currently trending bishop sleeve dress. Khushi is seen here in a ribbed caramel number, which she casually styled with gold-tinted dad sneakers and a pair of tiny hoops. For a fuss-free day-to-night look, here's your recommended silhouette.
A classic LBD never goes out of style, especially when you run out of options. Of course, it can be upgraded, like this laced, form-fitting silhouette chosen by Shanaya for an intimate house party. As a rule of thumb, always pair your LBD with nude or neutral-hued heels. Don't match your look head-to-toe.
