Buzz 46: 5 Style Lessons You Can Learn From Birthday Celeb & Fashion Icon Sonam Kapoor 

Gold, kundan, pearls, diamonds, and silver – Sonal experiments with it all. Right from statement pieces from upcoming desi brands to fine jewellery from international couture houses, she loves exploring it all. What’s more, this fashionista knows how to strike the perfect balance with the jewellery she wears – dainty ear studs with a chunky neck piece or a superbly ornate earpiece while giving a neck piece a miss. Talking about styles, she crushes on traditional designs like chaandbalis.

What You Can Do

Match your accessories and its ornateness to the occasion and the time of day. While silver, diamonds, and pearls are just the right fit for any time of the day, the same cannot be said about every kind of gold and kundan jewellery, unless you’re wedding is at daytime. Wear the lighter ones during the day and the ornate ones at night.

2. Experiments With Saree Drapes

Sonam loves flaunting traditional Indian weaves with a hint of global flavour. The result is the 9-yards draped in a never-seen-before style. Not just the saree drape, she never fails to surprise fashion enthusiasts with the hatke blouses she pairs with her sarees – the neck, the sleeves, and the length. 

What You Can Do

The timeless ensemble has graduated to being more than what it was even a few years back – thanks to the play of drapes. While dhoti-sarees are readily available these days, there is so much more that you can do with a saree. Look up for a few drapes that you can explore or simply let your creativity flow and come up with a few styles of your own.

3. Made Her Baby Bump Look Fashionable 

The fashionista made heads turn with her style statements while flaunting her baby bump with panache. Her pregnancy announcement Instagram black-and-white post introduced a flavour of the yore, while our jaws dropped at her exceedingly gorgeous black silhouette. Later, her pregnancy photoshoot in a pleated ivory drape, paired with traditional jewellery and kohl-lined eyes, garnered equal appreciation from fashionistas, if not more.

What You Can Do

Women have started owing their baby bump and flaunting it with elan like never before rather than keeping it hidden. With pregnancy photoshoots galore, try your hand at different outfits as versus to going with flowy gowns as is usually done.

4. Classy To The Core At Cannes

She gave fashion a whole new meaning with her impeccable choice of fashion at the Cannes festival, every time she graced the red carpet as the brand ambassador of L’Oreal. White, ivory, and beige have mostly predominated her Cannes look time and again, with an occasional colour pop like a bright blue or a fluorescent yellow being thrown in. The queen of mix-n-match gave her couture and accessories a global touch while blending them with elements that celebrate her Indian roots.

What You Can Do

Even if you aren’t hitting the Cannes red carpet, special occasions call for out-of-the-ordinary outfits that do justice to it. Try out a unique saree drape, a lehenga with a dupatta worn in a different style, or a dress of a distinctive fit and style.

5. Gorgeous Wedding & Pre-Wedding Looks For Bride Inspo

Sonam paired awe-strikingly intricate bright red wedding lehenga designed by Anuradha Vakil with vintage jewellery. She layered her choker with a guttapusalu necklace and an ornate matha patti. For mehndi, she wore a stunning matte gold lehenga by the same designer, accentuating it with traditional jewellery yet again. 

What You Can Do

Getting married soon? Take a cue from this fashionista and experiment with different colours of lehenga for your wedding and pre-wedding events, not missing out on the much-needed attention that your jewellery deserves. Go for jewellery that perfectly complements your personality, and the shade and design of your lehenga and you’ll be sorted with a significant part of your wedding trousseau.
