New Kid On The Block Sara Ali Khan's Style Decoded
27 th Feb 2019

Freshly minted debutante Sara Ali Khan has more than just her royal lineage and star parents backing her gradual rise to possible super stardom. The porcelain-skinned beauty is the poster child for the adage ‘If you dream it, you can do it’. The now svelte beauty has battled obesity and PCOD as a youngster but overcame those hurdles with sheer grit and hard work, qualities that shine through in all of her interviews and press interactions.

Sara Ali Khan is no trust fund baby who’s happy to fall back on mom and dad’s laurels and connections to get her to the top. She’s a young lady who knows her mind and isn’t afraid to be totally real. She has an effortless ease in front of the camera that some of Sara’s contemporaries have yet to master. Something that even the usually cynical Indian press has lauded her for as she flits from one interaction to another with the ease and poise of a seasoned pro.

With 2 films under her belt already, Sara Ali Khan’s performances have also been well received by critics and audiences alike. She’s not just lighting up mainstream screens with her acting chops but also blowing up social media with her off-kilter sartorial choices. Unsurprisingly her bold and confident streak comes across in her ensembles as well ensuring that she’s wearing the outfits and they’re not wearing her!

Sara Ali Khan favoured a panoply of ethnic chic when promoting her first movie Kedarnath. Salwaar kurtas, Patiala trousers and sharara pants by her favourite designer duo Abu Jaani Sandeep Khosla made up the bulk of her wardrobe. The colour palette was decidedly pristine and traditional with a lot of whites and pastels mixed in with festive prints. The coordinating accessories like boho bags and Kolhapuri slip ons also added to her channeling the quintessential desi girl vibe. She exuded the vibe of the timeless beauty of classic sensibilities with a contemporary touch, adding a flair of modernity and relatability to her looks.

When her second movie Simmba was about to release Sara Ali Khan expertly redefined her style aesthetic. This time it was all about retro glamour and bold experimentation. Keeping up with co-star Ranveer Singh’s hyper-stylised persona is no easy feat even for actresses who’ve been around the block plenty of times, but Sara Ali Khan isn’t one to shy away from a challenge. Her fashion appearances metamorphosed dramatically from pristine flowing ethnic outings to over-the-top eclectic pieces. Sequinned trousers, embellished mini dresses, animalistic jumpsuits and bright hued disco separates became the new closet staples. Killer Louboutin heels mixed in with exaggerated colour blocking, screaming feline prints and tactile tassels added to her reinvented Coachella-esque vibe.

With this total 360 Sara Ali Khan proved that she was no novice when it came to her on-screen and off-screen personas. We’ve put together some of her most memorable looks to give you a glimpse into her chameleon like style.

White Magic

Sara Ali Khan seems to adore the hue made ultra famous by the Kardashian clan. She’s been seen in a myriad of totally different silhouettes in white and always looked simply ethereal.

She wouldn’t be considered a style maven without a few key Indo-fusion moments in her repertoire. Sara Ali Khan is no different from the millions of new age Indian women who adore their fusion pieces for their elegance and comfort.

Retro Chic

For someone who wasn’t even alive during the flared bottoms and bell sleeves era, Sara Ali Khan certainly has a handle on how to rock these hard-to-pull off statement pieces. Funky colours, unique embroideries and loud sequins are no biggies for this effervescent young star.
