When I’ve overslept and there’s not enough time to even crib about how ‘I’ve nothing to wear’, I wear my basic white tee and blue jeans. When I’ve to dress up for an office event, a crisp white shirt comes to my rescue. When I’m going on a vacay, I always pack my white sundress and shorts because they go with every accessory and footwear. When I want to feel comfortable without looking shabby, white palazzos save the day.
We all have white something in our closet that we avoid wearing either because it’s too bright or because it’s high maintenance. But nothing comes between white and these Bollywood celebrities when it’s for fashion. Here are 10 different ways in which you too can wear white on a daily basis without looking like you’re coming from a funeral.
Award shows are a great source of fashion inspiration, especially for parties, cocktails and date nights. Everytime you refrained from wearing white to a night event, here’s a picture of Deepika showing you it can be done. Power shoulders, plunging neckline and a sleek updo - the three come together to create a powerful look.
Pantsuits don’t just belong to the 9-to-5 curriculum and Bollywood celebrities have proved this time and again. You don’t need colour make white a dramatic shade. Add a little bit of flare and suit up Bebo style.
Afraid that a pantsuit might be ‘too much?’ Here’s how you can wear it nonchalant - with your plain white tee. Don’t worry, you can break the all-white monotone-y with a bright lipper and quirky shoes just like PeeCee.

Every Sonam Kapoor outfit has ‘extra’ written all over it whether it’s a ball gown or a basic white kurta. We love the way she has paired pinstriped pants with a button-down kurta, and dupatta drape inspiration? Nice fusion!

Indian ethnic wear is the easiest to pull-off in white. All you need is a white kurta and white churidaar, something we all have in our closet, to ace Kriti’s look. Embroidery or no embroidery, print or all-white, this is how you look your chic best. Easy, right?
White net saree (notice how she’s matched her clutch purse to the saree’s contrasting border) with matching choker and earrings - this sure does look like the work of Sabyasachi. A saree even your mom would approve of.

Ah, weddings. Such a happy occasion. People dressed, so many colours all around. But If you like to stand out, you won’t wear the usual reds and pinks. Something like Bhumi’s white angelic lehenga is what you should be wearing to the next wedding you attend.
Step one, get a white dress. Step two, pick any pair of trousers. Step three, take a belt matching your shoes and cinch it around your waist. Viola! Looking like a celeb is that easy.
How could we forget the outfit that started it all - a casual chic dress!

The obsession with white everything in fashion is so high that we want even our jammies to be this cool. Shraddha Kapoor’s kurta-pyjama set is what a Sunday hug must feel like. Notice the nude slip-on sneakers!
