Vaani Kapoor’s transition from a conventional Indian beauty in Shuddh Desi Romance to a super-stylish, hot French babe in Befikre is a treat for sore eyes. The actress plays the role of Shyra, an Indian-origin girl born and brought up in France and needless to say, she dresses the part too. Ahead of the movie’s release on December 9, Kapoor shares a few tips with her female fans on how to dress like a local in Paris. Considering French fashion is always a classic, we are more than thrilled.
Wear a scarf as a style statement: Scarves never go out of style and what’s the right way to wear it in Paris? Every way is right states the actress. If you want to make an impact, you can wear it as a headband. It is sure to get people’s attention or you can keep it simple and stylish by doubling it up as a belt around your shirt-dress. There’s another way to rock a scarf and that’s wearing it the vintage way – around the neck.
Ditch heels for sneakers at work: It’s totally fine to go to work in sneakers. We can’t agree more; other than being the latest style trend, sneakers actually look pretty cool and can go amazingly well with a formal suit or skirt. You just need to create a balance in your overall look.
Pick up a trench coat to keep you stylishly warm: There’s nothing more French than a perfect trench coat. You can wear it with almost everything, be it with a white shirt and a pair of denims or a knee-length dress. Not only does it protect you from the cold but also amps your style quotient by a milestone. Just make sure that is tailored according to your body type because there is nothing worse than an ill-fitting trench coat.
Add some accessories to your wardrobe: French style is always classic but you can always add a quirky element with some really fun accessories, like a choker, bracelet or rings. But just make sure that you don’t go over the top and certainly avoid chunky jewellery. Keep it simple.
Black never goes out of style: Be it anywhere around the world, black is the most favoured colour and you will probably find it in every wardrobe. So, it’s no surprise that the French too love black. There are many ways to rock this hue, and with the party season soon approaching, you can go for an LBD and pair it with either a pair of colourful heels or simple black strappy sandals. you can never go wrong.
