Anushka Sharma has appeared in multiple best dressed lists and has always made a statement. While there is no doubt that her red-carpet looks have anything less than ordinary, it’s her everyday style that has our attention. The steal? The strength of a wardrobe is in its timeless basics and the 32-year-old star sure makes a solid case for it.
Investing in strong separates gives you the opportunity to mix and match these pieces to create new looks. Sharma is often spotted wearing her favourite classics (some even borrowed from her husband, Virat Kohli) on repeat. What’s great is that she makes it look new every time. Taking cues from her effortless style, here is everything you need to build a wardrobe that will take you through every season.
1. The oversized tee
The T-shirt is one garment that can have so many different personalities and Sharma’s love for it cannot go unnoticed. While you see her rocking a T-shirt to the airport or even on holiday, the oversized tee has caught our attention. This fuss-free piece is a reflection of Sharma’s style as she wears it with utmost ease. Be it over a pair of your favourite jeans or man style trousers, or tucked into denim cut-offs, this wardrobe staple is the perfect match to anything you want to wear it with. Anushka’s favourite kind: one with a giant logo.
2. The cropped jacket
The cropped jacket is a great way to add a layer to your look while still showing off your waist Anushka Sharma wears a cropped trench with classic black cigarette trousers. While the shoulders of the trench are boxy, the cropped length balances out the proportions. The Pari actor also chooses to throw her cropped jacket over a sports bra. To give this look a touch of sophistication, Sharma pairs it with man style trousers. Evidently this style of jacket is Sharma’s go-to travel companion.
3. The suit
A well-tailored suit is a foolproof look, but the Sultan actor is always known to add her own spin to the most timeless pieces. Anushka Sharma’s T-shirt plus suit combination is the epitome of business casual. While you might want to wear this look with a pair of kitten heels to the boardroom, swap it for white sneaks to take the look out on a date night.
4. Slouchy sweats
The elastic waist has been the talk of the town these days and Anushka Sharma is no stranger to it. From lounging around the house to wearing it on a long haul flight, the slouchy pants have become a new wardrobe favourite that has made its way outside the house. Wish to include it in your everyday wardrobe? Wear it with a matching hoodie or even a tee, and you will see how comfort and style can go hand in hand.
5. The white shirt 2.0
While the white shirt has been a constant in the wardrobes of many, its 2.0 avatar makes it even more desirable. Anushka’s collection of the white shirt—think wrap silhouettes, and drop shoulders, have made appearances at the airport, movie screenings and even business meetings. If there’s one thing we can be sure of, you will be wearing this staple on rotation.
6. The lightweight kurta set
Anushka Sharma has been a proud advocate of Indian silhouettes and wears them with as much ease as she does any other outfit. Case in point: The lightweight kurta set lends itself perfectly to the current weather. Feel free to mix and match the kurta with the bottom and wear it with your favourite pair of summer flats.
7. Boyfriend jeans
Denim, specifically jeans, is an essential part of our wardrobes. While Sharma has worn almost every style in the book, her favourite seem to be boyfriend jeans. This versatile pair has the ability to be worn during the day as well as can be dressed up for a night out. Sharma wears hers with an oversized shirt and mules to the airport and swaps the flats for a pop coloured heel for a night out. Here’s more proof:
