Celebrity trend to try: Shoulder-duster chaandbalis
The longer, the better
With the wedding season just round the corner, you’re probably neck-deep in picking out your outfits and accessories. As seen on the runway, black is a colour to experiment with this season, and as for jewellery, maximalism is trending. Shoulder dusters were unanimously voted by designers like Ritu Kumar and Sonal Varma as the one accessory fad to invest in. And now, Bollywood A-listers like Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor have taken that trend forward and added some traditional appeal to it — say hello to shoulder-duster chaandbalis.

Sonam pairs her shoulder-grazing chaandbalis with a beige embellished anarkali suit, subtle make-up and her hair styled in loose waves.
Sridevi works her chaandbalis with a gold embellished Sabyasachi sari.
