The newer generation of Bollywood is known for setting serious sartorial benchmarks. Many of them really have upped the ante for laying down ground rules for modern dressing. One such celebrity (that we have ALWAYS crushed on) is Athiya Shetty, who not only gives us back-to-back body, skin, hair goals but also renders us speechless with her covetable style aesthetics.
Her stylist, Ami Patel, makes sure to enhance her strong suits which are her innate inclination towards fool-proof classics and that enviable frame. Her cluster of ethnic and contemporary looks includes leading designers which have often made to the headlines of many articles.
As the actress celebrates her 28th birthday today (wishes are in order), we thought of looking back at some of her best pin-worthy looks to date.
Pantsuits FTW! Especially the ones featuring a trendy crop-jacket. Athiya does not shy away from making a bold impression and picked this cobalt-blue set by Kunal Rawal for a fashion show. She teamed her piece with an oxidized silver necklace, micro bag, and block heels.
Athiya looks absolutely ravishing in this black one-shoulder gown by Reetu Neeva. The exquisite piece features a classy train and a structured bodice. We can't even.
We are making space in our closets for some quirky, contemporary pieces after checking out this Athiya-approved perky lehenga set by Masaba. The outfit is replete with palm tree motifs, which is atypical, yet cool. Needless to say, she rocks it with much aplomb by pairing it with a chic choker-necklace set.

Icy-blues all the way! Athiya Shetty serves as a wedding-guest inspiration in this elegant number by Anita Dongre. She teamed this piece with classic chandbaalis and stone-encrusted kadaas for a traditional vibe.
The actress is giving vintage vibes in this blush pink sharara set by Anjul Bhandari. She paired her minimal chikankari style with a kundan choker set and added mogra gajras to her hair-bun. Classy, much?
This classic red Ri-Ritu Kumar anarkali is a must-have in an ethnic wardrobe. We're making this beautiful piece our go-to and taking fashion cues from Athiya on how to style it, which is with temple-gold danglers and embroidered juttis.

One of the most versatile pieces a modern woman can own is a traditional chikankari lehenga. Take cues from this stunning look, and add this powder blue number by Rahul Mishra to your festive closet. Doesn't she look gorgeous in this elegant outfit?
We're turning toward tropical motifs for a little pick-me-up, which is also a comeback trend of this season. Trust this Athiya Shetty-approved lehenga for Mahima Mahajan's LFW '19 show to make a statement. Plus, the sequin-embellished blouse elevates the contemporary look, which the star complemented by wearing an emerald-encrusted necklace.

Monotone lehengas? Yes, please! One of the star's best looks till date, this vermillion red lehenga set by Anita Dongre is every modern bride's dream outfit. Evidently, the dainty floral embroidery is the MVP of the outfit.
Nothing says classy like an understated beige sharara set. This piece by Tarun Tahiliani is equal parts regal and minimal, and also has Athiya's stamp of approval. P.S., note that if your ethnic number is just as detailed, a dainty maangtikka works the best. Close-knit wedding outfit inspiration, anyone?
After all her stunning ethnic looks, Athiya gives us #offdutywardrobe goals with this chic white tunic by Anamika Khanna. If dressing down is your criteria for a day out, then pick this asymmetric jacket-tunic piece and style it with a millennial's go-to accessories, sling bag and white sneakers, just like her.
