Happy happy birthday my darling @amaker7 . I wish we were all celebrating together. You are loved by all your friends and family and it’s very easy to do that because you’re kind, creative and funny. Love you and miss you! See you soon.. ( ps It makes me proud that I’m the exception of a human you like taking pictures of) ❤️ 🎂 🎈
We have said it before, and we will say it again—polka dots are the holy grail of all things print, and there is just no denying it! From minuscule to large and from scattered to neatly placed, the classic polka dot print is a wonder that you can style in a plethora of ways, Indian wear and western apparel alike.
POPxo Recommends: If not opting for a monochrome look of head-to-toe polka dots, add a solid colour to your look like Sonam Kapoor to highlight the print in your OOTD.
The ‘florals for spring’ meme is deeply embedded in our minds and with reason too! A go-to pick for all seasons now, florals ranging from bright blossoms to subdued iterations are all you need for a winning look. Oh, and they work for just about any occasion!
POPxo Recommends: Go all out, as your heart desires, just like Priyanka Chopra here. After all, aren’t florals “groundbreaking”!
Never doubt the power of a pinstriped formal piece, all that you would need to bring a power-packed element to your workwear wardrobe. Deriving their name for the fact that they are thin stripes, hence the word pin, pinstripes are still as effective and groundbreaking as the larger versions in the family.
POPxo Recommends: Let your choice of classic print stand out in a tailored separate. Take cues from Alia Bhatt’s one-shoulder jumpsuit, or select a pair of trousers to do the trick.
A classic go-to that will always surprise you, checks make for striking appearances. Be it a variation in size, colour or scheme, there’s a reason the cool print is always looked up to for a chic wardrobe.
POPxo Recommends: Mix and match your checks by bringing two distinctive kinds together to form a complementing outfit, just like Deepika Padukone has done here. Alternatively, you could also opt for stripes to match.
If you like to live life on the edge, this is just the classic print version you need in your closet. The animal print too has its fair share of iterations, ranging in type and kind. But one thing is for certain—it’s not for the faint-hearted!
POPxo Recommends: Minimize accessorising, adding subtle hues to your OOTD to let your chosen animal print stand out. Speaking of standing out, there’s Kareena Kapoor Khan showing how!
Quintessential and fun, the trippy tie-and-dye print has been all over our Instagram feeds since last year, not that we are complaining! With a plethora of types to pick from—think shibori, bandhani and leheriya, this one is essential to inject a bit of colour in your wardrobe.
POPxo Recommends: Go monochrome à la Ananya Panday, matching your separates with the base colour of the tie and dye print.
When speaking of psychedelic prints, think intense, often colourful and surreal. Derived from the art and counterculture of the 60s, the kaleidoscopic prints are a maximalist’s haven, a classic that rarely goes out of fashion. Even if it does, it finds its way back in no time!
POPxo Recommends: Pair your psychedelic pick with a solid colour to keep the emphasis on it while also avoiding a clash of colours.
Which one of these is it going to be then? All? Thought so!
