Kareena Kapoor Does Desi Minimalism Right!

When it comes down to desi dressing, too much is never enough. It’s one of those times where it’s perfectly acceptable to go heavy on the accessories, even when your ghaghra weighs more than 4 kilos. While this might be exemplary for the wedding season, there are times where we need to put on a stylish kurta for an occasion that doesn’t require all that embroidery and bling. As Indians, we often find ourselves perplexed when someone tells us to go traditional, yet simple, amirite?! Well, those days are gone because once you check out Kareena Kapoor Khan’s minimalistic desi style, we don’t think there’s any occasion you can’t dress down for. Scroll ahead for some inspiration:

Using Statement Accessories

She keeps her saree relatively simple with a monochrome drape and amps up the style quotient using a shirt as a blouse and that gorgeous statement neckpiece.

Cutting Down On The Bling

While bling is great in limitation, you will often find things like motifs or embroidery more dominant in Kareena’s outfits. Plus the fact that they’re only towards the hemline of her anarkali gives those gorgeous earrings just the amount of attention they need.

Ditching The Dupatta

Yes, it seems a little hard to let go of that third piece that makes your outfit so complete. But ditching the dupatta can instantly lend a more casual vibe to a kurta, considering Kareena sported it in her airport style.

Letting Your Hair Down

While those braids and top buns really add to your outfit, sometimes letting your hair down gives an easy-breezy vibe to your traditional ensemble.
