6 Times Neha Dhupia Gave A Masterclass In Oversized Summer Dressing For Bigger Women

Neha Dhupia Oversized Dressing

Wear black. Wear stripes. Vertical ones only, please. Don’t wear anything lined with ruffles. Avoid anything bold like red or yellow. God forbid, you go for anything oversized. You don’t want it to attract unnecessary attention to your belly, do you? Well, I say screw it. Ditch these obsolete rules that no one asked for. And rather, own it, just like Neha Dhupia does.

If I had a penny for every time a big girl received unsolicited dieting and fashion advice, I’d be the one buying Twitter. But Neha Dhupia’s style file is a fresh take and an absolute inspiration that squashes the notion that oversized clothing isn’t for big girls. From the easy-breezy kaftans to loose dress-shirts, her wardrobe is without a doubt, a masterclass in acing non-constrictive silhouettes.

1. Oversized Maxi

A tropical-printed, loose and light Payal Singhal maxi always comes to save the day. Paired with juttis and a chunky choker, this look hits multiple targets simultaneously, ranging from a seamless day to night switch. Brunch with a bestie? Perfect. Meeting in-laws? I’m sure they’ll adore this one. Vacationing in prickly heat? Here’s your one true saviour.

2. Kurta-Ghagra For The Win

Your ghagra is nowhere near to being the breaking news on prime time television. Why? Because it lacks the ‘it’ factor. But not anymore. Opt for a kurta in place of a choli. This Punit Balana gem of a kurta-ghagra set emerges triumphant and possesses the charm to convince you to give this a shot. Dupatta or not, this one’s a must-try.

3. White Is Right

Here’s your summer saviour in white by the lovely homegrown and sustainable brand ILAMRA. Neha’s seen in their Midnight Frangipani dress that seems lighter than a feather. Perfect for these troublesome, hot and humid months. The bow placement and the deep neck add ample character to the dress and for best results, put on some stacked gold jewellery. Et voilà!

4. Relaxed Casuals

An oversized satin shirt and a midi skirt always work. No complications. But what makes this look stand out is the accordion ‘esque tulle element of the skirt coupled with the combination of earthy metallic hues. No efforts are needed. Also, can we talk about how the boots are just *chef’s kiss*?

5. Kaftan Fever

This kaftan is an offering by Rajdeep Ranawat and its rustic and boho-tropic aesthetic is proof. The hem features asymmetric stitching that helps accentuate all the work you put in on your leg day. With the oxidized jewellery and open hair, we all bop our heads in unison.

6. Construction Play

How refreshing is this look? This hand-dyed waterfall cape dress and trapeze pants by Sartorial By Swati is the numero uno fusion combination that deserves praise aplenty. Neha stacks it with chunky bangles by Ritika Sachdeva and it serves as the perfect festive yet minimal option.
