Who says an outsider cannot make it big in showbiz? From being a contestant on Indian Idol 2 to judging the show in its 10th and 11th seasons, Neha Kakkar has undoubtedly come a long way. Her social media presence cannot be ignored as everything she does goes viral in just a matter of minutes. So, on the occasion of the Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast singer’s birthday, we are celebrating her singing hidden talent, which is styling. From the sets of reality shows to her real life, Neha’s fashion sense is so ‘girl next door’ and yet glamorous at the same time. Below are her top 10 looks and the reasons they are our favourite!
So without further ado, here are 10 of our absolutely favourite looks of Neha that prove that (a) the singer can pull off any colour, (b) styling for shorter people is not that tricky, and (c) her taste in fashion is just as amazing as her voice. Read on!
Ah, the (green) apple of our eyes–Neha is looking so cute in this pastel green with rose printed three-piece set by Pasha India. It’s casual, chic, and perfect for summer. Best part? With sets like these, you can mix and match individual pieces to create cool new OOTDs! Can’t wait for corona to calm down so we can finally step out and enjoy summer the way it’s meant to be enjoyed.
Neha posted this picture earlier last month with the caption, “Me, Right after #Lockdown is Over! 🌻”, and we felt that! This gorgeous all-black lehenga by Kamal Sood with black embroidery and sheer details needed nothing more than a tiny bindi to make a statement.
Speaking of making a statement, Neha has yet another way in her fanny pack to wear black and it’s this solid lehenga with a tube choli, flared skirt and ruffled dupatta by Surabhi Chopra Label. I can already imagine all the different things I can team each of these pieces with. What a versatile lehenga! She paired it with a statement choker by the same label. Check it out:
The jewel-toned trend had been a gamechanger in 2020. Needless to say, this emerald green saree by Ekaam is looking fine AF on Neha. Its satin finish with glitter details all over the pallu and saree fall is giving a well-balanced look with that heavily embroidered blouse. She’s a gemstone, all right!
Laal mere dil ka haal hai after seeing Neha sporting this vibrant floral dress with such panache. With a thigh-high slit, cape sleeve on one shoulder, and a flowy silhouette, this red outfit from JULIE By Julie Shah is giving us such resort wear goals. Great, now I can’t wait to go on a vacation and run to the beach making a slo-mo video. Thanks very much, Neha!
Nothing says style in summer better than cotton suits that are comfy and chic and this sharara set in blue with a contrasting grey dupatta is all I can imagine wearing to the office once it reopens. It’s super easy to dress up or dress down such outfits with the right choice of accessories and for any occasion. Besides, a printed cotton suit like this is a wardrobe staple.
Who doesn’t like high-waisted jeans, especially when they’re flared! This lightly faded pair teamed with a multicoloured cropped blouse has ‘summer’ written all over it. I tell you, flared high-waisted jeans are the best (read flattering) way to survive the scorching heat without compromising on either comfort or style.
They say your belt should match your shoes and the super stylish Neha be damned if she didn’t do it her way! This bright graphic T-shirt dress with a typography belt and matching sock boots look of the singer is something I would like to try one day to widen my comfort zone. It’s bold, sure, and the perfect way to stand out in the crowd. Would you give this combination of yellow and fuschia a shot?
Co-ord sets are so underrated and I don’t understand why! They are versatile and one doesn’t even need fancy accessories to complete the OOTD. A co-ord set is statement enough on its own. This dusty pink printed set with a button-down skirt and an off-shoulder top is looking oh-so-chic on Neha. We love!
The dullest days can be instantly lifted if you skirt for it and Neha here is proof. The way she paired this wrap denim skirt with frayed hems with a basic T-shirt is, in fact, looking anything but basic. Denim never fails, I tell you!
A very happy birthday, Neha! You know, 32 doesn’t look better than this!
