Looking stylish while feeling comfortable seems like an impossible feat during summer. But when it comes to our Bollywood’s leading ladies, they show us how Indian wear is the answer to all our wardrobe woes this season. From airport looks to lunch dates, young actresses are ditching shorts and dresses for breezy chikankari suits.
Spotted in whites and pastels, actresses like Sara Ali Khan, Janhvi Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma have made this traditional Lucknow kaarigari an indispensable part of their garb. While Deepika wore a heavily embellished chikankari sari for her wedding reception, Sara and Janhvi are often spotted wearing chikankari embroidery on sheer fabrics like chiffon and georgette for casual outings and Alia Bhatt seems to love wearing cotton suits with chikankari work for film promotions. Bollywood divas are flaunting their ethnic ensembles everywhere, and they show us how to style this royal embroidery for every occasion.
