Sonakshi is nailing summer chic in this white look
Nothing screams ‘sunny summer afternoon’ quite like an all-white look. It’s easy on the eyes (and on the body) while looking stylish as hell. From her latest style spotting, Sonakshi Sinha knows that spring is in the air and summer’s right around the corner so she’s dressing for it. Recently, Sonakshi stopped by the sets of Super Dancer to promote her upcoming flick, Welcome To New York. More than the movie promotions however, our eyes were peeled to her breezy look.
Sonakshi’s ensemble is from designer Shriya Som’s latest collection, hot off the Lakme Fashion Week runway. Her look consisted of a mirrorwork V-neck bustier, wide-legged trousers with a draped waist tie and a light eyelet jacket. With it, she skipped accessories and only opted for nude strappy heels with poker straight hair and mauve lips for a minimal makeup look. All in all, she looked fantastic and better still, perfectly appropriate for the season.
One look at this outfit and we know you’re aching to try this style with summer fast approaching. Thing is, white-on-white is a tricky game to play and one wrong move will land you in Jeetendra territory. So if you’re wondering how to wear all white this summer, simply follow these styling tips from Sonakshi’s latest look.
1. Switch Things With Texture
A fatal mistake to make when styling a monochrome look like this is opting for one single type of finish. Sonakshi has smartly paired reflective mirror work with cutout eyelet lace and trousers with an easy fall. Together, this creative mix of textures merges wonderfully together while still complementing each other’s differences.
2. Ease Up On Accessories
It’s a bold thing to wear an entire outfit in one colour as it instantly grabs all the attention. A bundle of accessories can clash with it and take away from the appeal of this look. Like Sonakshi’s minimal accessory game, opt for muted footwear and barely there jewellery.
3. Differentiate The Tones
Although the look in its entirety is white, notice that there’s a difference in tones between all three pieces. This clever styling trick intentionally pairs the silver toned bustier with the ivory jacket and white pants. This makes sure they don’t just merge into each other and stand out as separates as well.
4. Keep It Light
It would be tempting to throw on a red lip with a look like this but that’s not what Sonakshi has done, for good reason. She has kept her makeup minimal with dewy skin, winged eyes and mauve lips which gives her look definition without taking away from the outfit.
That’s all you need to know to slip into an all-white look this season.
