How To Break Monotony With Stripes, Featuring Ileana D’Cruz

Style Statement


While we may all love monochrome ensembles because they are hard to go wrong with, from time to time, there’s no harm in being edgy and making standout style statements. Times like these call for stripes, which never fails to impress and as such, we keep seeing it making a stylish comeback in the fashion scene time and again. This season too, stripes have been getting major love, with bold and colourpop designs taking the spotlight. Remember┬áDeepika Padukone’s fun candy striped dress by Tome or┬áSonam Kapoor’s Emilia Wickstead red and white striped dress that the actresses wore during Cannes Film Festival this year?

While various other Bollywood actresses have been making splashing appearances in stripes all of this season, another diva to have gotten it on point recently was Ileana D’Cruz. While attending an event in Mumbai, held by Tourism Fiji, Ileana made heads turn by sporting one of the hottest style trends – pantsuit. But rather than opting for chic monochromes, Ileana picked a bold design with black and grey stripes.

Ileana’s relaxed fit pantsuit seemed like a perfect way to stay easy yet chic while going about with her work. The long blazer had satin collars, and it was teamed with a matching high-waisted trousers and a lacy crop top with a plunging neckline. To spruce up her look, Ileana sported the right kind of accessories – a pair of chic stilettos with transparent straps and statement earrings. Ileana’s hair and makeup was on point too as she opted for a neat ponytail with side bangs, and sported bright lips to add some spark.

Ileana’s pantsuit is all about keeping it subtle and chic, but if you love colours, then opt for stylish designs in myriad hues.

Go on, have fun with stripes and stay stylish.
