Although the lockdown has changed the course of our present lives we are still 100% fashion-obsessed in our spirit (can't take that away from a fashion lover). And we know you are too. Quarantine and chill has got us cooking, cleaning, and fondly reminiscing and re-watching some of our favourite movies. (If you don't know which to watch check out our list of favourite movies). The one recurring theme we noticed and agree with is how Bollywood has a major influence on setting fashion trends. One such movie that changed and laid precedent for the years to come was Cocktail.
It's been over 7 years since this film released but have we gotten over it? Probably not! Even today we are obsessed with Veronica's edgy glam and her effortless oomph. Together with her movie stylist Anaita Shroff Adjania, Deepika created on screen fashion magic. Take a look at these 5 Deepika Padukone outfits from Cocktail we would wear even today.
Monochrome Outfit Trend
The coloured summer shorts that are our summer staple may have been around since forever but we have been going monochrome with our pairings, haven't we? Cocktail not only gave rise to the coloured summer shorts trend but also gave us the monochrome outfit trend that we can't seem to part with even after all these years. Inspired by DP's green on green ensemble, the trend has gone beyond shorts and has also paved its way into jumpsuits, pants, and trousers.
The Golden Dress
Proving that there is no such thing as too much bling, Deepika shined in this sequined number. The golden dress may have appeared on screen only for a several seconds but it made a real impact on us. Just like Veronica it is edgy, glamorous and OTT. And when paired with smokey make-up, like Deepika Padukone, there is no other dress that fits the bill for a night out quite like this one.
Given Deepika's physique she can pull off almost anything with ease and this striped bodycon dress is no exception. Styled with just heels and a pink statement sling, the striped dress is the centerpiece that rightfully commands all the attention. Are we wearing striped dresses even today? Hell Yeah!
Printed Palazzos With Tank Top
The palazzos fever caught on after this movie and has never truly left. From western wear to fusion wear and solid to printed, we absolutely adore our flared pants. Even though we have added some layering in the form of jackets and blazers today to make this more work-appropriate the tank tops and printed palazzos started by Deepika Padukone continue to rule our wardrobes.
Tiered Black Lehenga Saree
Yet another outfit proving that the styling of this movie was BANG ON! Not only did Deepika sizzle as the sexy siren in this tiered black lehenga saree by Sabyasachi but made the lehenga sarees a rager. The maang tikka paired with the lehenga saree is a bridesmaid's look which continue to be relevant even today.
