She’s just one film old but Athiya Shetty has already carved her way into Bollywood’s A-list. You just have to browse through the internet to know that the world can’t get enough of this beauty. No, it’s not because her father is is a cinematic legend or because she was launched by none other than Salman Khan, but it’s that killer jawline, those perfect almond-shaped eyes and legs that go on for days! All this together with her effortlessly chic sense of style catapulted her to the spotlight, making her fashion’s newest IT girl. Even with the likes of Sonam, Deepika and Alia, young Miss Shetty holds her own. We picked out some of the best on point outfits she’s sported to make her B-town’s bonafide fashionista.
1. Ladylike Chic
For her first ever public appearance (at the trailor launch of her film Hero), Athiya channeled some feminine charm in a tulle skirt, a floral belt and left her locks to cascade freely. Since then, there’s been no looking back for the young fashionista. She sure knows how to flaunt some girly chic.
2. Print Party
It’s not an easy feat carrying off head-to-toe prints but Athiya makes it look as effortless as ever. Whether it’s a summer dress, a maxi or matching separates, Athiya loves to step out in a whole lot of print to grab heads. We can’t fault any of her printed looks.
3. Desi With A Twist
Among all that high fashion she sports, Athiya loves to mix things up by coming back to her traditional roots every now and then. Not one to ever be predictable, we love how she’s always surprising us with her sartorial choices. Anyone else want to pair a cropped jacket with their suit the next time they go desi? We know we do!
Who said basics were boring? This new kid on the block has no qualms about stepping out in grungy denims and sneakers. She’s all about being comfy like you and me. We love how she jazzes up a simple jeans and tank outfit with a snazzy blazer, a dramatic pout or a bright, attention-grabbing bag. Go on and take some style notes.
5. Queen of edgy
Unlike every other newcomer, Athiya doesn’t play it safe and isn’t afraid to take a few fashion risks, which is one of the main reasons why we love her. Like we said, boring just isn’t her style. Whether it’s head-to-toe gold or adding a cool harness to her dress, she’s always wowing us with her love for experimentation.
We couldn’t help but be impressed by her first red carpet stint. We don’t think any of her counterparts fared this well for their first big fashionable appearance. We couldn’t fault a thing with her look- that gorgeous yellow dress, the dramatic plum pout and the understated jewellry, everything about it was absolutely on point. Sonam Kapoor, we hope you’re watching your back!
