How to Get The Dolly Ki Doli Look

Ask Sonam Kapoor how to deck you up for the next wedding you’re invited to and who knows, she might read out an entire wardrobe item list for you. Truth be told, Sonam has nailed the modern bride look in her new movie Dolly Ki Doli. She looks unconventional but stays traditional, adds avant-garde details but lives it up in deeply embellished ghaghras and finally, makes sure the new bridal look for the year is anything but mellow. So we put together a few things you might need this season to nail Dolly’s look.

A Traditional Lehenga with a Twist
A good lehenga should adhere to a few rules: a good fit, a vibrant colour and a neatly stitched blouse. Now, what Sonam showcases in the movie poster is not a conventional one. It’s a little on the subtle side. The lehenga is simple, parades itself in monotone and keeps those accessories at bay. Subtle yet colourful but packed with a punch – notice that there are no jarring Swarovskis and crazy sequins. Now that’s how you make a statement.

Have you ever wondered which sunglasses go well with Indian wear? We did and we agree with Sonam. Aviators have always been trendsetters and on Indian outfits, they tend to take the chic factor up a notch. These days aviators come in varied shades and cool reflective lens – just choose one that suits your outfit well. For all those who love convention, a classic aviator is all you need – with it’s dynamic military looks and vintage-y frames.

Leather Jacket 
Now leather jackets on lehengas might just be way too bold but Sonam does it so effortlessly. When looking for a cover-up to use, buy one that is staid, refined and structured so as to combat the flouncy exuberant lehenga. Reams of fabric needs a structured top to keep it in place and to flatter your shape.

We all know sports shoes are the shizz – they seem to keep you toned, help with your everyday look and generally make you look fabulous on a daily basis. But teaming them with a lehenga is a first, even for Sonam. But she wears them effortlessly and pulls it off – maybe wearing sneakers on Indian wear is far too unconventional for a regular girl but you can wear them on kurtis and sport them with ethnic jackets. Whatever it is, it shouldn’t stop you from ogling at the fab fare we have here, right?

Hair Accessories 
All those maang tikkas have come to some use. With fashion going traditional, hair accessories too have gone unconventional. You can easily sport hair band with your denim shirt and can also easily pair it with your kurti. Talk about multiple benefits. Choose ones with many chains, unique charms and fun crystals – they will add the glam effect to your next outfit in a jiffy.
