A lot has changed in the seven years since Kriti Sanon made her debut on the big screen with Heropanti (2014). A string of blockbusters and 37 million followers later, what remains unchanged is her penchant for on-trend numbers and sartorial conversation starters. Indeed, a quick scroll through her Instagram feed and you’ll find that her wardrobe plays host to all the hallmarks of millennial fashion.
And after a year of living in loungewear, it is time to allow Sanon’s choices to help you rediscover the joy of dressing up.
If you can’t be at the disco, you might as well dress for one—the Panipat star clearly agrees. Chainmail and sequins are regular visitors in her après-hours wardrobe, teamed with slouchy trousers or worn head-to-toe. While smoky eyes and big hoops serve as the go-to finishing touches, if you’re feeling whimsical, a pair of classic white sneakers won’t go amiss either.
If you’re ready to take a break from gilded baubles, Sanon would like to put forth antique-style silver jewellery for your consideration. From chunky jhumkas to oxidised necklaces, her choices channel the nostalgia of a bygone era. When the time comes, you’ll want to cop her outré stacked kada and chandbali pairings. But for now, coin necklaces and dainty chandelier earrings will prove to be worthy companions on the Zoom trail.
After months of sheltering indoors, there’s some peace to be found in the calming hues of white. Sanon recommends introducing the hue to your wardrobe in every way you can—from breezy dresses, fringed tops and itsy-bitsy miniskirts to embroidered anarkalis and lehengas with gota patti work. The key takeaway? White-on-white serves as a failsafe classic with summer around the corner, but the versatility of the hue will make it a welcome addition to your trans-seasonal wardrobe as well.
From heritage drapes to cocktail-ready saris, the star chooses to give her picks a contemporary update with new-age blouses. Your options range from knotted backless numbers to halter neck blouses with strategic cutouts that will help you bring sexy back.
If you’re tired of seeing muted pastels everywhere you turn, Sanon has all the inspiration you need to inject a dash of colour into your Indian wear wardrobe. On the roster is a diverse array of unconventional hues that are guaranteed to serve as a mood enhancer, from parrot green to cheery yellow with the occasional tie-dye thrown in for impact.
Fairytale-ready gowns are never in short supply on the shores of Bollywood, but Sanon has been giving hers a modern edge with risqué details that are guaranteed to get you noticed from a mile away. With our social calendars curtailed during the pandemic, you’ll want to make every outing count with her discerning eye for stop-and-stare silhouettes—think thigh-high slits, plunging backs and midriff cutouts that are anything but boring.
As fashion goes multidimensional, Sanon’s choices have been serving up a treat for more senses than one. Flip through her style files, and you’ll find that the star has been bookmarking fringe trims, feather embellishments and iridescent paillettes. If you’re looking to deliver a viral moment on social media, she recommends opting for textured numbers designed for movement—whether it’s buttery soft plumage that begs to be touched or holographic fringe for that extra shimmy on the dance floor.
