You all might know Kanika Kapoor as the person behind blockbuster hits like Baby Doll and Chhittiyaan Kalaiyaan, we know Kanika Kapoor as a fashion icon. There's SO MUCH more to her than just playback singing. The 40-year-old singer has achieved outfit goals so high, you cannot help but follow her right away for some eye candy. Here are 10 of her fashion looks that'll make you look twice if it's actually a singer or a stylist.
White, especially with Indian wear, is probably the most unboring colour in the fashion world. No amount of colours can beat the versatility and vibrancy of it. This blue and white printed sharara set looks simple and stylish at the same time. Works for office, weddings and casual outings alike. Here's an idea for your next lunch with la famille.
POPxo Recommends: All-Over Print Sharara Pants (Rs 599) by Ajio at flat 40% off.
When polka dots and ruffled hem combines in a pantsuit, it's a fashion delight you cannot help but dote over. We love how Kanika has paired her monochrome outfit with nude flat mules, similarly toned shoulder dusters and a hard-hitting blue handbag to break the monotone-y.
POPxo Recommends: Light Beige Mules (Rs 1,299) by H&M.
More than celebrity trends, I like to gram on street style trends. They tell me a lot about what to buy next and what to stop wearing, how to layer like a pro and how to dress up without wearing more. Up next - flared jeans with a cropped sweatshirt and a studded bag. Oh! Almost forgot. Damn those earrings!
POPxo Recommends: Studded Sling Bag (Rs 1,199) by Origami Lily.
This outfit is the epitome of statement fashion. No, literally, even the tank top and the fringed sleeves on it spell it out. The waistband of the beautiful ruffled ombre skirt is reassuring - both fashionably and morally. Clearly, there's more to slogan t-shirts than just jeans *light bulb!*
POPxo Recommends: Slogan Mesh Tank Top (Rs 699) by K Active.
I kid you not when I first saw this picture on my feed, I seriously thought it was Priyanka Chopra with her a-one street style. Looks like we've fresh fashion inspiration around the block. A striped high-neck tee with a furry coat and a dazzling green metallic skirt to up the game, sometimes, things like these make me wish I lived in London or New York. Don't even get me started on pairing thigh-high boots with midi skirts *heart eyes*!
POPxo Recommends: Pleated Midi Skirt (Rs 2,490) by Zara.
Colourblocking, slashed-knees, frayed hems and the sock-fit boots again, I think it's safe to establish that Kanika Kapoor is all the trend watch we need. When opting for bulky tops, go with slimmer bottoms to bring out the boxy effect. Also, investing in fashion assets like boots is the price tag you should never be scared of.
POPxo Recommends: Ultra Edge Light Blue Flared Jeans (Rs 1,207) by Lulu & Sky.
I've mixed feelings about this outfit given I'm not the biggest fan of asymmetrical hemlines. But the cold-shoulder denim jacket got my attention and got it good. I know what my next DIY is going to be about. Revamp your denim jacket for a summer-friendly affair without letting the heat get to you.
On the other hand, maybe I should give assymetry another shot! While most celebrities opt for big gowns and evening dresses to award shows, Kanika gave us #OOTDGoals by wearing a crisp black blazer with a bralette inside and a skirt that speaks louder than the sound of your heels. Sugar, spice and everything nice, this ombre skirt has it all (along with our attention). The studded pumps are not be missed.
POPxo Recommends: Black Studded Pumps (Rs 1,119) by Addons is available on Myntra at 60% off.
In a trendy indie print, this three-piece coordinate set has boho vibes written all over it. When wearing monotone, go big on accessories just like Kanika's multi-coloured statement necklace. Give them something to talk about *wink*!
POPxo Recommends: Kutch Silver-Plated Necklace (Rs 679) by Studio Voylla at 60% off on Myntra.
Finally, a saree that I can drape without my mum's help. Just a basic crop top, my old farewell saree, and the good old silver oxidized jewellery. No one would be able to tell if that's a crop top or a designer blouse, we tell you.
