Kareena Kapoor Khan, Bollywood's evergreen fashion icon has done it again! The Jab We Met actress wore an on-point print-on-print outfit at the Ishq FM press conference and it is giving us all the feels. The actress chose to dress in a polka dot one-shoulder top with ruffled sleeves and a gold stripe skirt, complete with her hair in a fashionable top-knot. And she proved all the haters out there, who think print-on-print is an overkill, absolutely wrong.
The secret behind the success of her unusual pairing was the fact that she wore a small print with a bold print; take styling notes ladies! The stripes on her skirt flattered her body type because they were a combination of vertical and horizontal lines. A lot of women stay clear of stripes because they think that stripes make them look big and bulky, and the truth is, you're wearing them wrong. The thing about stripes is that you need to pick the type of stripe that works for your body type. If you are bottom-heavy, then always go for vertical stripes or stripes that meet in a 'V' because that accentuates your curves. Similarly, if you're heavier on the top, opt for prints that are smaller in size, they'll flatter you best!
And if you're one of the lucky few who has Kareena's insane bod, here are a few ways you can carry off this exact pairing. You're welcome!

Polka dots on polka dots won't always make you look like a tragic Bollywood heroine from the '70s. Just pair large polka dots with smaller ones to give the trend a 2018 update.
POPxo Recommends: Polka Dot Off-the-Shoulder Top (Rs 999) By Forever 21
POPxo Recommends: Women Black & White Striped Flared Mini Skirt (Rs 1,099) By Texco
Pairing large polka dots with thin asymmetric stripes is another great way of achieving Kareena's polka and stripe look. Simple and stylish, you can never go wrong with a black and white combination.
POPxo Recommends: Wrap Knot V-Neck Striped Top (Rs 1,095) By Shein
POPxo Recommends: Slant Pocket Striped Pants (Rs 740) By Shein
Pairing thin stripes with larger, bolder ones give your outfit a chic and sleek look. But make sure that the colours don't clash! If a classic top and pants combo is too safe for you, switch things up by choosing a wrap top or a classic shirt with billowy sleeves. We guarantee, your outfit will look anything but boring.
So, go on, start shopping, ladies!
