Strawberry popsicles. Easy-breezy sorbet hued dresses. Colourful acetate sunglasses. There’s something about the quintessential ‘summer vibe’ even if its just spending hours basking in sunshine by the window, at home. And Bollywood’s heartthrob Alia Bhatt doesn’t shy away from getting her dose of vitamin D. Proof? Her social media grid. From sporting pristine whites when the temperature rises to inclining towards unconventional pastel silhouettes, it’s a no brainer—the versatile star harbours a likeliness towards calming tones and hues.

Whether it’s giving pastels a major sequin upgrade or making an appearance with the least sought after colour, Alia does summer dressing like no other. What we love the most? Her style is one that runs high on practicality and functionality, making it easier for women across the globe to emulate. And as we approach summer yet again, we suggest learning a lesson or two from the actor’s pastel closet before the season ushers in with full swing. Swipe through:

Whoever said layering is for winters certainly didn’t flip through Alia’s stylebook. Up the ante by pairing your crisp, white shirt with a pastel, peplum tube top. Complete the look with dewy, rosy makeup for max effect.

For minimal effort, maximum impact, load up on day-time sequins. Opt for a high ponytail and barely there, strappy heels. We promise, you won’t look like a walking ice-cream stick.

Channelling your inner Greek goddess made simple, courtesy Alia. Here’s the outfit formula you need to steal for your next summer get-together: Sheer fabric, breezy pastel silhouettes, messy side braid, minimal accessories and tons of highlighter.

Can’t do away with your love for prints? Wear them the right way this summer by keeping it lowkey and blending pastel hues with gingham print. Take notes from this light mint-green checkered number.

We've got to say, we lilac this look a lot. It’s easy, understated and after all who doesn’t love candy tones in the scorching heat? Bring out your best lavender linens and let your hair down (literally and figuratively).

When it comes to pastel clothing, do not be afraid to experiment with different cuts. From bow-tie detailing, asymmetrical flow to multiple ruffles, count on Alia for inspiration.

For days when you want to go extra, pair a pastel tie-dye tee with your denim. Our say: add on a chunky, gold chain-link necklace to really amp up the look.

Have an intimate daytime wedding event on your schedule? Opt for a calming, blush pink silhouette paired with oxidized silver jewellery.
