6 Style Lessons We Learnt From Bollywood’s OG Fashionista, Kareena Kapoor Khan
From wearing chiffon Manish Malhotra sarees and rocking blonde-golden highlights at almost every red carpet event to becoming style inspiration for girls across the country, Kareena Kapoor Khan has come a long way in the fashion game.
Whether she is lunching with her girlfriends, hitting the gym to maintain those abs, attending an event, promoting a movie, or travelling with her cute-as-a-button son, Kareena is always impeccably dressed and her outfits always make headlines.
As the actress celebrates her birthday today, we decided to take a leaf or two out of her style journal, and bring you 6 style lessons Kareena Kapoor Khan. Keep scrolling for a crash course in Bebo-ness (yes, that’s a thing)!
Lesson #1: Anti-fit Is Not The Answer To dressing a baby bump
Kareena Kapoor’s pregnancy was the talk of the town and caused a fashion revolution in India. The actress made the baby bump fashionable and rocked it like a boss! Unlike most actresses who wear loose clothes, don’t make any appearances, or hide away until the baby weight has been shed, Kareena made the most of her pregnancy, made as many appearances as she would otherwise do, and didn’t stop working either!
Lesson #2: Play Up Your Assets
One thing this begum always does is play up her assets. Like most women, Kareena’s body has also changed over the years. In her size-zero phase, Kareena had long, lean legs, so mini dresses became her choice of outfit. Followed by this, the actress had the sexiest back in B-town, so she played that up with backless outfits, and recently the actress shed all her baby weight and earned herself envious abs, which she flaunts in crop tops or cutout outfits. If you got it, you better flaunt it is the mantra for this style diva!
Lesson #3: Always Give Your 100%
Whether she is headed to the airport, a friend’s house, lunch or even her yoga sesh, Kareena always looks glam AF. The reason behind this may be that she is photographed so much. However, even when she is on vacation where there is no one snapping her, Kareena puts 100% effort into her look. So ladies, always bring your fashion A-game!
Lesson #4: Classics and power dressing are a no-fail
One prime lesson everyone should learn from Kareena is that classic cuts, structured silhouettes and power dressing is always a no-fail. The actress is often seen wearing classic flowing gowns, structured LBDs and power suits for events.
Lesson #5: Sweater and sweatshirts > Basic T-shirts
If you are jeans-and-tee kind of girl then, take a cue from Bebo and elevate your look with chunky sweaters or graphic printed sweatshirts. Sweatshirts, jeans and sneakers are almost like Kareena’s airport uniform. It is also quite practical as these will keep you warm on those long flights.
Lesson #6: Nothing looks more royal than a sharara for the festive season
Whether it was her pink Faraz Mannan look, her Tarun Tahiliani Diwali look, or her recent Raw Mango look for the Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations, Kareena has proved time and again that, for the festive season, there is nothing more timeless than the classic kurta-sharara combo!
