Sayani Gupta Made Velcro Sandals Look Cool And We Don’t Know How She Pulled It Off
There are a few things every ‘desi’ prepubescent child has had to endure in his/her life. A bowl cut that their mums made them get at the local barber’s, a second-hand bike passed down from their siblings and a couple of chunky shoes that light up when you walked. These are but just a few things that I can recall from my childhood (90s kind right here), with one fashion element becoming a part of my life through ages of 6 through 11…the black velcro sandals!
Growing up, I hated these sandals. They made my feet look gaudy, made a loud noise every time I took them off before dance class and did nothing to keep my feet clean, or warm, in the streets of the 90s era Rajahmundry. Thankfully, I managed to evade the sandals once I hit puberty and switched to cute flats and ballerina pumps. But, the memories if the same still haunt me.
Having said that, I was reminded of them on a Thursday morning when I spotted Sayani Gupta in a paired with her absolutely gorgeous red and white salwar kameez. The Four More Shots Please star looked so cool in her outfit.
The Bong-beaut was out and about on errands and her ethnic ensemble is such a fun take on every day ethnic style. The chikankari salwar kameez paired with flats, a boho bag, and cute jhumkis is such a minimal yet statement look. The outfit is easy-breezy, as a strong play of the colour red and with added shades of crimson on her lips and cheeks. We love the simplicity of these separates, it is a great example of the use of one colour to make your look pop. Love!
We recreated Sayani’s outfit by picking out sheer alternatives for the clothes and slightly smarter flats, check it out!

On the work front, Sayani is just coming off a high of playing a serial killer in Posham Pa (2019), a performance that has garnered acclaim. She is also one of the early participants of the current CAA-NRC protests, using her social media and protest presence as a volunteer to speak out. What a rockstar!
