If we had to use a single adjective to define Kareena Kapoor’s style, it would undoubtedly be carefree. Her looks might very well moonlight as a handy black book to anyone who is looking forward to learning how to nail the casual-chic aesthetic while keeping things effortless. The lockdown, which is making the rest of us trend-savant cohort want to push our luxe pieces deep into our wardrobes and bring our casual-wear to the fore, has, in fact, only worked for the actor, who seems to be using her recently-created Instagram account to showcase her bohemian-inspired at-home style. And while we like all clothes that we see on the actor, the one outfit we’re particularly fixated with these days is the ivory-coloured one-shoulder draped top and skirt by Masaba that Kareena wore to celebrate her 40th birthday.
The picture, posted by Karisma Kapoor, shows Kareena sitting sans makeup (that seems to have become her trademark makeup look in the lockdown) wearing the Masaba outfit with funky prints, while cutting into her Wonder Woman-inspired cake. We like how she has kept the accessorizing to a minimal with the exception of a simple necklace with sapphire-like stones embellished in it.
Sure, one-shoulder and off-shoulder silhouettes were slowly making a comeback into the fashion scene of 2020’s last few months, but we won’t be surprised to see everyone opting for these now that the trend has Kareena’s go ahead, too.
Depending on how one prefers to style it, you can wear the set as is in its slouchy state like Kareena or give it a slightly more high-fashion feel by cinching the waist with a belt, just to give it a slight shape. One can also accessorize with chunky silver or oxidised jewelry for a tribal-inspired look that’s completely in tandem with the tropical theme of the printed bird motifs on the outfit.
Not only is this piece chic and versatile, but also budget-friendly, which is what most people are looking for when they want to find an outfit that packs a punch without dropping an ostentatious bundle on it. If you’re looking for a functional-yet-stylish outfit, this Masaba number as seen on Kareena is for you.
