Take cues from Shanaya Kapoor for your next outing.

Harper's Bazaar India

Let’s face it, the best part about going out is the anticipation building up to the event. Remember the iconic scene in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham where Poo (Kareena Kapoor Khan) gets ready? She indulges in a fun skincare routine before meticulously sifting through her wardrobe to curate the perfect ensemble before heading out with her friends. Much like Poo’s character, Shanaya Kapoor too exudes that unmistakable main character energy. Her wardrobe serves as a wellspring of inspiration for any occasion, including a casual Sunday brunch with friends. Whether you’re rooting for the ‘coquette’ aesthetic or aiming to channel the corporate girl within you, Kapoor’s style offers a spectrum of options to draw from. So, next time you’re prepping for a laid-back brunch, take a page from Shanaya Kapoor’s book for some killer fashion ideas.

When in doubt, pick a floral dress 

A floral dress is always a great choice. It’s charming, sophisticated, and it is the epitome of femininity, resonating with the vibe most aspire to emanate. Kapoor effortlessly paired her ensemble with a delicate necklace and beach waves, embodying the perfect summer girl aesthetic.

A pantsuit that just blends in 

When you’re yearning to shed the corporate persona but still retain a hint of that sophistication, a chic yet slightly relaxed pantsuit is the perfect choice, just like Kapoor’s. Opting for a striking red ensemble, Kapoor expertly nails the look, pairing it with the right accessories—minimal gold-plated jewellery and a cute handbag.

On days you are feeling lazy, keep it casual 

Dressing well in reality isn’t as challenging as it seems. Kapoor shows us that rocking a casual tee with a great pair of jeans is all it takes. She elevates her look with a simple tank top with jeans, complemented by a soft no make-up make-up look. The result? A total winner in style and simplicity.

Streetstyle all the way 

Street style has been gaining momentum, so why not put together a streetwear-inspired outfit? It’s incredibly comfortable and effortlessly stylish. Kapoor, in this instance, opts for a timeless combination of beige and black, topping it off with a cool cap. It’s a solid 10 out of 10. And this is definitely something you’ll want to pin to your Pinterest mood board.

Pick a simple shirt 

Summer means relaxed and effortless attires and airy cotton shirts reign supreme—especially in coping with Mumbai's humid climate. They're also the perfect choice for a casual brunch outing. Kapoor pairs her shirt with jeans, but you could easily opt for a skirt or even shorts, adding small gold hoops for a chic touch.
