Layering A Dress With A Skirt Is The New Bollywood Trend That We're Crushing On!

Isn’t it great when you need a new outfit, and you don’t even have to shell out ridiculous amounts of cash to get it? This Bollywood trend is all about combining the two basics every woman has in her closet - the dress and the skirt. Yep, B-town’s star gals working this layered trend is kind of making me wish I’d thought of it first. Why? ‘Coz it’s a brilliant discovery, that’s why. More importantly, it takes your glam game up like how! Doesn’t hurt that it’s super easy to get the layered look and in style, no less. Here are a few star-studded instances to take a cue from:

Kriti Sanon’s street style was all about the sequins. Also, she went all out with neon 90s style colours as part of her OOTD. Props for her adding a simple pencil denim skirt to balance out the crazy in her dress. Definitely a must-try for the glitter girl.

When it comes to Parineeti’s style evolution, it’s been one hell of a ride. From frumpy dresses to a high fashion layered look. Well done, Miss Chopra! You sure know how to ruffle feathers around here. Add an edge to your outfit, like the Bollywood starlet did, with a retro print and statement hem.

Bollywood newbie Kriti Kharbanda stole the spotlight with this one-of-a-kind layered look. A slogan shirt dress peeking from under a quilted, metallic green skirt and clear PVC shoes to finish. Perfect look to wear to Friday night drinks, isn’t it?

As always, Bollywood veteran Shilpa Shetty keeps it fresh with never-seen-before looks. This woman is all kinds of #stylegoals and you know it. If you want to know how to make the skirt-dress layer trend work with maxis, Mrs Kundra shows you how it’s done. The white dress. The zip detail camel skirt. The attitude. All on point!

Here's how you can work this trend:

What You Need:

  1. A well-fitted dress

  2. A skirt shorter than the dress

How To Style:

Wear your skirt over your dress so that the bottom of the dress is visible. As you might have already noticed, it’s important to strike a balance with respect to colour and print. If your dress is too loud or bold, remember to keep your skirt simple. Remember, don’t limit yourself to short dresses, play around with midi and maxi silhouettes to level up your skirt-dress game. To conclude, match your shoes and keep your accessories simple. Your best friends: pumps, block heeled sandals, hoop earrings, a solid crossbody bag or tote in this scenario.

P.S. Slit detail skirts are your best bet to pull off this on-trend look.
