Usually, when someone brings up trench coats, I instantly draw up a picture of chilly London streets and a cup of hot tea in my hand. However, today was different and Bollywood actress, Shilpa Shetty, had a big part to play in the matter. Or rather, her outfit of the day.
It's no surprise since Mrs. Shetty Kundra isn't afraid of out-of-the-box looks. One of the first to sport a pants-saree, this time, the Bollywood veteran made an event appearance in yet another unique ensemble.
Shilpa rocked a bright royal blue trench coat, which she wore with an asymmetric hem striped skirt in black and white. No longer will I associate a trench coat with, truthfully, the most boring beige. In fact, I need me a bright blue trench now.
The complete ensemble, including the trench coat and the sheer skirt, is the original creation of Indian designer label Bennch. While the earrings are from vintage jewellery retailer Viange Vintage, the cool colour-blocking shoes are from Vincenzio Robertina.
I appreciate Shilpa Shetty's ability to work a bright blue the correct way. Takeaways from this look: One, classics can be re-imagined; Two, monochrome and bright colours will never fail you.
Well styled, Sanjana Batra.
