We Thought Stripes Were Over Until We Saw These Bollywood Looks!

We Thought Stripes Were Over Until We Saw These Bollywood Looks!

Our love for florals and a soft spot for loud leopard prints and polka dots have ensured that anything with stripes gets designated as casual wear in our wardrobe. Because haven’t we all worn everything that could possibly have stripes? Think monochrome striped skirts, multi-coloured stripe pants and striped swimsuits. So, naturally, for us, stripes were SO over and done with until we noticed our favourite Bollywood celebrities bringing retro stripes back in style. We have rounded up 6 striped numbers that will never go out of style. If you want these in your wardrobe then it’s time to get in line, straight ahead!

1. Candy stripes officially rule our heart! 

Nothing makes us happier than seeing Deepika Padukone in a saree. But when she walked out in a candy-striped printed saree, the actress got everyone to stop whatever they are doing and take notice. Forget those striped tees and pants, the striped saree is here to rule. Why we love it? Because who needs sequin and sparkle when striped sarees are in style now? 

2. Monochrome always slays

The only acceptable way to show up at the airport is by adorning monochrome stripes and fearlessly adding layers to your ensemble just like the gorgeous Kareena Kapoor Khan. We dig striped shirts especially when paired with silk trousers, black aviators finished off with a bold red lip. 

3. The dress that will add power to your aura 

Nothing gets us going than seeing a dress that can make you look powerful, strong and sexy at the same time. We love how this dress has stripes but the little chevron detailing makes this dress fabulous. Opt for killer accessories like funky ankle boots and a wide black belt for the extra touch of drama! 

4. Cool & Chic

You simply can't fail in striped wide-leg pants in blue hues teamed up with a white ruffle blouse with dramatic sleeves. So the next time you are going out for brunch, this is the super cool outfit you should be spotted in. Don't forget your sunglasses! 

5. Lehengas & Stripes Tottally Work

Time to bid goodbye to lehengas that are full of heavy embroidery and pull you down. We love the modern hand detailing of just white stripes gracefully showcased on this lehenga. Take this design to your tailor right away. It's easy to carry off and will surely get all the heads turning in your direction. 

6. Metallic never looked so good

Forget the mini when you can totally stand out in a midi especially when the dress has such fine and gorgeous striped detailing. For the next formal event, invest in a metallic midi with stripes, pair it with black heels and a gold clutch. We guarantee you will make the best first impression!
