25 pictures that will take you inside Alia Bhatt’s wardrobe of Indian wear
From pastel lehengas to jewel-toned saris, there’s something for everyone
In the eight years since she stepped into the movie industry with Student of the Year, Alia Bhatt has traded in the school crest for some serious sartorial cred. Her parlance of unapologetic femininity is easy to love, with sugary shades and flirty silhouettes that deliver on fashion and functionality in equal measure. A closer look at her Indian wear wardrobe, and you’ll find that the young star is prone to flights of fancy—from her neon lehengas to vintage bohemian saris.
Decoding Alia Bhatt’s collection of kurtas for daywear
Kurtas have been witnessing a sartorial revival of sorts, with Bollywood’s most discerning dressers favouring the fuss-free silhouette for daywear. Floral tunics and light sharara sets are de rigueur in Bhatt’s wardrobe as well, but what sets them apart is the way they are worn—like the gota patti sharara set and chunky silver jhumkas she picked for running a quick errand across town.
For leisurely Sunday mornings, you’ll want to take cues from her white threadwork kurta which is best paired with a messy bun while you get stuff done. Palazzo pants are another wardrobe hero for Mumbai’s unpredictable weather, and Bhatt recommends stocking up on a crisp white pair. What can you pair them with? Just about every hue on the colour wheel. For a quick mood booster, you’ll want to bookmark her cheery yellow pick that juxtaposed stripes with playful polka dots.
