Totally Unique Sonam Kapoor Style Tips

1. Lady So Bright

Do you have lots of monochromes, greys and whites in your wardrobe? Well, these shades may be subtle and even classy but too many of them can pull down your style. Try to introduce some “Khoobsoorat” blues, reds, pinks and yellows in your wardrobe. So what if you’re a mommy? That’s all the more reason to look bright and energetic!

2. Be The Indian Diva

If you prefer wearing Indian clothes, don’t for a minute think this is boring. Sarees, salwar suits and long skirts can be super attractive when accessorized with bling jhumkas, a statement clutch, a neat hairstyle, and of course, a radiant smile! Remember Sonam as the gentle Biro in ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ or the cool girl next door in ‘Delhi 6’? Exactly what we mean.

3. Hoard Statement Pieces

Large neck-pieces, brooches, sequined purses and cocktail rings – they can come well within your accessories budget but look downright stunning. Why not splurge on some ‘Aisha’ style accessories to funk up your wardrobe? You can wear them as a solitary piece of jewellery to office parties or any function at your child’s school.

4. Try Out Bold New Looks

One thing you should never do is stop experimenting. Change your look every now and then with little, inexpensive things like a new hairstyle, a different way of tying your sari or pairing your usual jeans with a kurti instead of a shirt. From ‘Saawariya’ to ‘Bewakoofiyan’ to ‘Dolly Ki Doli’, different styles are sure to be refreshing for you too!

5. Eyes That Mesmerize

What is your usual makeup routine? If you’re mommy to a little one, chances are you comb your hair, dab on some perfume and lip gloss and say bingo. Well, just add another teeny weeny detail – put on some eye makeup. You don’t need to be too elaborate; apply kajal and a liner for a regular day and some eyeshadow for a glamorous evening. Dramatic eyes elevate any look from plain to wow – just like Sonam’s eye detailing steals the show at many of her public appearances.

6. Corporate Chic

Office culture is changing quite a bit – more and more corporate offices are embracing the ‘casual dressing’ culture – which means you can now up your office-dressing game! Put a new spin on the conventional pantsuit with some smart culottes and a tailored blazer. Keeping it playful and comfortable, yet not compromising on power-dressing!

The ever-classic black-and-white combination can be worked in many ways and does not have to be boring at all. It’s all in the details – whether it’s a dramatic flare in the sleeves, statement accessories, or a pair of killer heels that can turn the outfit up a notch!

10. Elegant Casuals

Even oversized sweaters can be classy when paired and accesorised with everything right. Ensure that you get fitted bottoms to go with your oversized tees as you wouldn’t want to give off an impression of a shapeless silhouette! Throw in some bling accessories to amp up the look and take it to the next level with the right pair of shoes!
