As basic as it may look – a shirt has some fabulous properties. You can modify it however you want. Match it with pretty much everything and use it to dress up or dial down an outfit. That is why shirts are the real deal. But if you are in the mood to experiment with something new, then look no further.We recommend styling a shirt with your Indian outfits – lehengas, ethnic jacket, brocade palazzos, literally anything. Don’t believe me? Observe the styling hacks incorporated by these five Bollywood celebrities who are creating magic with their shirts.
Flared pants and the ethnic jacket is a stylish choice, but it’s the pairing of the crisp white shirt that elevates this outfit. The pristine shirt provides a canvas for all other pieces to make a statement as seen exactly on Aditi Rao Hydari. For an interesting combination, add contrast coloured earrings and juttis.
A gauzy chiffon shirt matched with a bohemian skirt makes for an interesting (and flattering) choice. For more formal occasions wear your lehenga skirt with a shirt in the same tone. Kudos to Deepika Padukone for picking an unconventional hue. Opt for silver jewellery with darker colour shirts for a stylish texture.
The pairing of a long white shirt with dhoti pants is just the eye-catching detail you require when incorporating a western garment into Indian wear. You can layer your outfit by adding a similar coloured ethnic jacket to your shirt. Add heels and a lot of funky bangles for an edgy fusion look.
Use a crisp white button down shirt instead of a blouse the next time you wear a saree. An unexpected combination, this modest look works beautifully when accessorised with bold brooches and cuff earrings.
For girls who are into minimal dressing – style your white shirt (extra props for bell or exaggerated sleeves) with literally any coloured palazzos. It will translate into an instantly fashionable outfit.
