Look chic in Indian clothes!

Deepika’s classic style in Piku

Superstars in India are considered nothing less than gods and goddesses. This is the reason that the clothing styles they endorse in movies become immediate trend-setters. Sushmita Sen’s sexy sarees in ‘Main Hoon Na’ and Rani Mukherjee’s fun colourful patiyala kurtas (tunics worn with voluminous pants) in ‘Bunty aur Babli’(Bollywood hit movies) are testimony to this fact. Replicating these looks often involve extremely careful styling of clothes, hair and make-up. However when you see an actress in a girl next door look, it is an extremely refreshing change.

The crux of Deepika’s styling in the movie Piku is functional, yet aesthetic. Her wardrobe personifies a typical working girl from a metro. So no bodycon dresses, no slinky tops, no leather shorts and no cleavage baring outfits. In fact, Deepika rocked in no-nonsense fusion tunics, salwars (Indian pants typically worn with tunics), palazzo pants and everyday denims.

An over-sized handbag and a scarf were her staples. Finally there was someone on the big screen who we urbane girls can actually relate to. In spite of the simple outfits, she managed to look ultra stylish. Her wardrobe was a perfect amalgamation of professionalism and her individual style. Her look was strong, independent as well as earthy and connected to her Indian roots.

Her makeup consisted of simple kohl and lip colour. The only accessories she wore were simple earrings and the quintessential bindi. She broke the barriers of traditional Indian clothing, yet did not depend totally on the trends of the West. So the bindi was retained, but the dupatta was replaced with a scarf.


This is one of the picture perfect Piku look where Deepika combines a thigh length plain black kurta with maroon palazzos. Her look is rendered complete by a multicoloured scarf, gold juttis(flat shoes) and a bindi.


Here, Deepika rocks the sweet girl next door look. Dressed in a pretty white kurta and flowy, open hair, she made us all go ‘aww’. A pretty blue bindi completed her look.


This is in striking contrast to the girl next door look. Here, Deepika means business. With a simple black and white kurti paired with black culottes, she totally rocks the professional look. The red scarf adds a breath of fresh air to the otherwise black & white outfit. A tan bag, matching juttis, a bindi and oversized shades complete her look.


Here again we notice a completely different style where Deepika combines a basic blue denim with a longish blue shirt thus rendering an Indian touch to an otherwise western outfit. Going by the fact that she is grocery shopping, she carries a no-fuss handbag and wears no make-up. Simple drop earrings completed her look.


This is another everyday look from Deepika comprising of dark blue jeans paired with a thigh-length pink kurta. This look was completed with her staples – a scarf, tan bag, a bindi and over-sized shades.


Deepika rocked the sari-look in Piku by pairing a simple red and black striped sari with jhumkas(heavy ear rings) and her hair tied up. Her dark kohl lined eyes perfectly complemented her nude lips. And of course, a black bindi brought the whole look together.

Deepkia’s Piku style-file is perfect testimony to the fact that you can look a stylish professional in trendy, yet functional Indian clothing.
