When it comes to ever-changing fashion and 'how-to' inspiration, Bollywood has been our go-to saviour since time immemorial. Outfits featured in movies and well as worn by leading ladies while out for events often have us falling hook, line, and sinker for the fashion trends. But how does one exactly wear clothes the celeb style, without splurging more than required? And how to find what your personal style is? The answers all lie in your wardrobe, all you gotta do is figure it out! Here's how you can shop on a budget and style yourself like your favourite celebrity.
Organise Your Wardrobe
This might sound redundant until you try it for yourself. Not only will cleaning up your wardrobe make it easier for you to see all your belongings, but you will also find some outfits you had forgotten all about. Totally worth it!
Make A Calendar
No, not a 'to the T' timetable that you have to follow come what may, but it's good to have an idea of what you are going to wear, no? Pair your outfits in advance and you will not be sorry, we promise!
Browse Through Instagram
We have all been there at some point or the other, so when it comes to getting your daily dose of fashion inspiration, go to the gram. Bollywood celebrities aside, there are plenty of international fashion accounts you can follow—Scott Schuman led 'The Sartorialist', Instagram's Eva Chen and Man Repeller's Leandra Medine Cohen, to name a few.
What: Dark Denim Separates Alia Bhatt's dark denim separates, read a shirt featuring leg-of-mutton sleeve and wide-legged jeans, are just perfect for a shopping spree with the girls or a casual day in college. Choose your double denim separates and pair with flats or heels, depending on the amount of walking to be done.
What: Check Blazer and Wide-legged Trousers Trust Ms Padukone to serve us with chic fashion inspiration that works perfectly as a desk to dinner ensemble. Invest in a pair of tailored, check separates that make heads turn at work. While out, add sunnies to beat the glare that is synonymous with the summer heat.
What: Slogan Shirt and Denim A fan of all things casual yet effortlessly chic? We suggest taking a leaf out of Kareena Kapoor Khan's book of sartorial style. On your next shopping spree, online or offline, select a slogan tee complete with fun graphics, teaming your pick with black jeans a la Kareena Kapoor Khan. Wear it to college, to the movies, and just about anywhere!
What: Monochrome Dress and Heels All hail PeeCee, the queen of experimentative fashion. What summer months (and you, by extension) currently need is a bright coloured dress with minimal flounces to spare. Cinch it at the waist as you accessorise with heels of the same colour or keep it simple in an A-line silhouette. Either way, your date night and dinner party requisites are sorted.
What: Puffed-Sleeve Maxi Dress and Sneaker If sporty chic is more of your style, Sonam Kapoor's fashion-forward look is one to derive your fashion inspiration from. Shop a bright coloured dress with details to die for, and pair it with your favourite sneakers for a fashionable upgrade. Feeling a little courageous? Add a quirky fanny pack to your look and you will be good to go.
What: Dress With Cut-Out Details Come summer, uber-cool dresses and tops are bound to find their way out of your wardrobe where they have been stocked all winter. Looking for a fresh to death approach to elevate your style? Opt for a cut-out detail dress or a top in all black like Kangana Ranaut, pairing your pick with a fun backpack to carry your belongings.
What: Printed Summer Dress Prints for summer are inevitable, so why not make them fun and fashionable at the same time? Get all the fashion inspiration you need from Anushka Sharma and work a floral dress this summer as you step out for vacay, play and anything in between. While you are at it, don't forget to shop for a super fun mobile cover that matches your state of mind!
