Layer up for the Mumbai winter
We know, we know – Mumbai cannot claim to have a winter. The days still leave us flustered in 30 degrees heat and the evenings dawn upon us with a mild 22. But the last few days have seen a slight nip in the air, much to the excitement of city residents. We turned to our favourite Bollywood beauties for inspiration on layering in style.
Deepika Padukone: The poncho
One of the lucky few to snag Burberry’s monogrammed poncho, Padukone wears it well over skinny jeans and boots.
Kangana Ranaut: The lightweight knit
A light knit gives just the right amount of relief. Layer over a shirt or wear on its own with boyfriend jeans for the ultimate in casual cool.
Neha Dhupia: The dupatta scarf
Take a load off your shoulders and wrap your dupatta around your neck, doubling it up as a scarf. Choose a neutral hue and team with your desi attire. Tres chic.
Priyanka Chopra: The gilet
The too hot-too cold conundrum becomes a thing of the past when the fur gilet enters the sartorial equation. Keep it as the statement piece with an all-black outfit, and don’t be afraid to add more texture—think waxed-effect denim and embellishment.
Sonam Kapoor: The jacket
It’s the fashion world’s newest form of armour – a jacket thrown over your shoulders like a superhero cape. And its perfect for those in-between moments.
