From sneakers and leggings to cardigans and glasses, sometimes dressing down can make you look casually dressed up and chic! But putting together an outfit that is easygoing yet trendy (instead of boring and drab) requires some skilful sartorial mix-and-match. So, for your style inspiration, we give you some of our fave Bollywood actresses who have ditched the heels and short dresses in favour of a laid-back look and nailed the art of comfy dressing with fashionable lair. If you’re looking to do casual chic in style, these divas show you just how!
1. Shraddha Kapoor - The Classic White Top
The latest Kapoor on the block stepped out in an outfit that is every girl’s go-to - a white top and denims. She paired the pretty top and simple jeans with nude flats for a look that is fuss-free, relaxed and super-cute! You just can’t go wrong with this one.
2. Alia Bhatt - Pops of Red
Alia took her jeans-and-tee look out to dinner and added a bit of spunk with ankle boots. We also love how she brought a touch of sexy to the casual look with red hot accents by way of her bag and bright pout!
3. Sonam Kapoor - Jumpsuiting It
Instead of going the usual denim route, Miss Kapoor spiced up her casual day style with a vibrant jumpsuit. Using a simple jacket to tone down the party-factor of the outfit for a style that is easygoing and fabulous was pure genius. Trust Sonam to do comfy dressing with her own stylish twist.
4. Jacqueline Fernandez - Style Check
Jackie turned heads with her off-duty style by layering an uber-cool jacket over a checked shirt and tank top. Those Jimmy Choo boots added just the right amount of sass to her chilled-out style. And let’s not forget that scarlet pout and high ponytail. Tres chic!
5. Kalki Koechlin - Blue Crush
Looking as adorable as ever was Kalki when she showed up to an event in a simple blue maxi skirt and cotton shirt. Cute white sandals and a laid-back topknot was all she needed to channel some relaxed elegance!
6. Deepika Padukone - Sexy Specsy
DPad tones down the sexy with her off-duty style but looks gorgeous nonetheless in blue jeans and stylish brogues. We love how she brings some sparkle to an ordinary look with her T-shirt and rounds it off with those geek chic glasses and a pouffed ponytail.
7. Neha Dhupia - Leggings and Prints
On a day when you just want to feel cosy, and jeans don’t cut it, a basic pair of leggings comes to our rescue. Celebs are no different, and have been known to do leggings with a healthy dose of fabulous. Neha Dhupia opted for trusty black leggings while holidaying in Sweden and paired it with a fun, printed tunic. She brought a pop of colour to her monochrome look with a hot pink cross-body bag. That’s definitely some real-girl style we can relate to!
