After months of solid colours trending in Bollywood, prints have finally found their footing. In the recent past, there have been ample celebrity style spottings emblazoned with prints. Neha Dhupia has been their biggest fan with her maternity looks. There was even the time three stars went all out with ikat and tropical hints on one day. But really now, in the world of prints, is there anything more classic than stripes? Of course not.
Stripes have been present in fashion long before you and me but that doesn’t mean a thing for a classic fashion staple like this one. Vertical stripes flatter the body and work like an optical illusion to visually elongate the area so it’s unsurprising to spot it everywhere, from runways to B-town parties. On one particular day, two pretty actresses went ahead and made it a fashionable coincidence by donning stylish vertical stripes.
First there was Ileana D’Cruz spotted with Andrew Kneebone at the airport. While her partner opted for a casual look in a shirt, jeans and sneakers, Ileana went slightly dressier. She wore a grey, pink and white vertical striped wrap dress with a plunging neckline, a fresh no-makeup look and black sandals.
The next vertical striped look of the day belonged to Shraddha Kapoor. For movie promotions, the actress wore a black and yellow striped shirt dress by Pink Porcupines with her hair in a braided ponytail, a coral lip and black strappy heels.
One day with two stylish striped looks. You can’t go wrong with this classic print and these two stars certainly second that. With their chic looks, they are making a case for vertical stripes and how.
