Twinkle Khanna is working this classic colour combination like a pro
Time to jot down some style notes
Whether it’s her Chanel vintage quilted bag that she’s carrying around or the To Kill A Mockingbird book she’s hiding in the same bag, Twinkle Khanna is all about the classics. And this philosophy extends to the colours she chooses to wear. At the recent premiere of the play Salaam, Noni Appa — adapted from her bestseller The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad — the author and interior designer showed off the timeless appeal of navy blue and tan.
From head to toe, Twinkle worked different shades of blue and tan, adding just the right amount of gold through a statement ring and her Bulgari Serpenti watch. Light pink lips, kohl-rimmed eyes and a touch of blush on her cheeks completed the understated look.
Twinkle styled her midnight blue blazer embellished with gold buttons with a nude camisole that she tucked into her flared blue jeans. Beige peep-toe pumps accentuated her look. That Chanel vintage maxi caviar quilted bag in tan put the entire ensemble together — we’re sure it’s because of the bag’s versatility that makes it Twinkle’s favourite. (PS: See all the luxurious bags in Twinkle’s closet).
The multi-hyphenate opted for the same combination to Suzanne Khan’s birthday party a couple of days back, where she styled a short blue A-line net dress with the same beige peep-toe pumps and Bulgari Serpenti watch. A beige clutch finished off the neat look. Clearly, the witty writer knows how to work her colours.
In case you were wondering which books live in her massive library:
Twinkle tried to get through this one as slowly as possible just to make it last longer.

For the literary romantics Khanna recommends Dear Scott, Dearest Zelda.
Twinkle is seriously obsessed with the Fitzgeralds. If your high school reading covered Gatsby, you may want to check out Tender Is The Night.
You know when you check out a book by a same author because you loved his previous work? Well this one didn't hit the spot for Twinkle quite like The Hundred Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared.
Of course, Twinkle sticks to the classics.
The children's book that makes it to most adults' all-time reading favourites.
That time when Twinkle went to detox with her sister and discovered they were reading the same book.
"My Brilliant Friend is brilliant indeed. This book does not do any of the complicated zigzags of successful storytelling but is an arrow that flies parallel to the ground and hits at the heart of all human emotion," Twinkle breaks it down.
