She hails from the family of Tagores and Pataudis, holds a degree from Columbia, has two major Bollywood talents for parents, and is a beauty to commit a felony for. Yet, Sara Ali Khan presents herself as one who’s relatable and grounded, and fans connect with her instantly.
One of the many things that make her one of us is her personal style which is pragmatic and wearable for a college-goer, housewife, young-adult, or a seasoned professional. What’s more, they are apt for Indian summers and you all can borrow or re-create her looks easily.
A fresh face sans make-up with a warm smile is her signature style. Her healthy complexion makes make-up totally unwanted. To attain her style, do this: clean and detox your system, sleep and hydrate well, follow an effective clean-tone-moisturize routine to get flawless skin and keep yourself happy to smile widely. The budding actress has incorporated a lot of whites in her wardrobe; when she is not shooting and not all dolled up, it’s easy to catch her in a cotton chikankari set paired with exquisite juttis or mojris. She shares her new additions on insta stories every time brands and boutiques often send her such pieces, expressing her gratitude. White or pastel chikankari pieces are a staple in the Indian summer wardrobe anyway. Sara loves flaunting her active wear collection and she sure has tons of them. As a fitness-freak, she spends hours at the gym and to keep things interesting she puts on loads of colorful shorts, vests and track pants. After investing all those hours in the gym, or working out at home whenever she can, Sara now has a perfectly chiseled midriff that she loves to flaunt. She has appeared in multiple promotional events dressed in Indian, Indo-westerns or totally western designs that tastefully leaves the midriff bare, but belly-button hidden. You could shop for some high-waist lehengas, palazzos, or shararas and match them with matching or contrasting itsy-bitsy tops to re-create these looks. She has been seen in heavily embellished Anarkali suits in bright reds, yellows, magentas and greens. Could be an intricate zardosi pattern, mirror work or gota patti. She never goes overboard with jewelry pieces - never. Mostly, it's just a pair of statement earrings that add to her youthful charm. Speaking of accessories, she shows love for stacking up on bangles, albeit, just in one of her wrists while the other one stays free. Maybe you can add a watch to the empty arm and push in loads of glass bangles that go with your outfit for the day. Sara’s personal style translates to comfort, and you can’t talk of comfort styling without mentioning flats. On her way out and about, the Love Aaj Kal actress is always clicked in flats or juttis, if not sneakers when headed for the gym. Move over the little black dress, make space in your closet for a signature little red dress. Get the perfect red heels to go with it and add an absolutely matte lipstick in red to your dresser for that perfect pout. And with lips so bold, remember to go easy on the eyes. Often spotted in desi wear, sarees, however, are not something we have seen her enough times in. However, this yellow bandhej she draped for a Diwali party last year was an absolute winner. The simplicity coupled with the easy appeal of the light-weighted fabric is what guaranteed all eyes on her. If ethnic wear is what amazes you, a silk bandhani piece with a contrasting blouse is a must in your wardrobe. Never seen her opting for complicated hair-dos in her personal time. She lets her manes loose; at best, groomed with a blow dryer. Her silky tresses are neither too long nor too short. They hang a few inches below the shoulder, and compliment all kinds of looks perfectly. This hair-length is also easy to maintain and care for, hence we find it apt to emulate in these busy days.
