2 breathable kurtas from Anushka Sharma’s closet

In a pandemic, breezy kurtas are the only way, and Anushka Sharma knows! We’re imagining her sitting in a kurta in her balcony, enjoying Mumbai rains and a cup of coffee…

Anushka Sharma, was recently seen on Vogue India’s cover for the July 2020 issue in a steaming hot Hermes swimsuit and is giving us major FOMO. We’re pretty sure her own pictures her giving her major FOMO too. One thing is for sure that even the pandemic couldn’t stop Bulbbul’s fearless producer from making news. Be it the cover story, the star watering her plants, enjoying with her dog, or playing the gibberish challenge with spouse (Virat Kohli), Sharma has always managed to beat the boredom on the gram. And let’s not forget the two genius productions that came our way this pandemic – Bulbbul and Paatal Lok

In the world before the pandemic, Sharma’s style file was always ahead of time. From her dialed-up red carpet moments to her relatable everyday style, Sharma believes in functionality more than presentation, which I admire. She’s one of the very few fashion enthusiasts whose aim is to balance things out and not overdo it! On her wedding day too, this Sabyasachi bride understood the emotions of the garment and kept her face looking lively and not at all cakey. Her choices of silhouettes have always been right up on the alley of her powerful personality – effective and practical.

While the ongoing lockdown has given us insights of Bollywood celebrities keeping it cool with their off-duty wardrobe, the Sui Dhaaga actress’s pre-virus worn kurtas below serves us the best proof of her already achieved relaxed style with a blend of comfortable and classy. If you don’t want to go the extra mile this Raksha Bandhan, opt for one of Anushka Sharma’s looks!

If there is something to lesson from Anushka Sharma, it’s her practical sartorial picks for airport looks (crop top, jeans, ethnic wear). A white kurta goes a long way when it comes to style aesthetics, which by the way has won celebrity votes innumerable times. The actor wore an ivory Good Earth kurta with pastel coloured trousers (styled by Allia Al Rufai). Girls, this ensemble is a mainstay in your everyday wardrobe. If the occasion warrants more natural and minimal, this can be the fuss-free garment you should opt for.

Back in 2019, the Jab Tak Hai Jaan actor stepped out to vote wearing a light and easy-going kurta, paired with the most romantic pair of white palazzos. Her note-worthy outfit featured chikankari details with intricate thread work. The quintessential kurta look was completed with a pair of ivory juttis reflecting so much of her personal style. This breezy number can bring out the best in you at a small pooja or simply just running an errand. Here are some similar picks to recreate the look:

You did it during the BLM movement and you’re doing it again. You’re taking away from the wonderful moment women in Turkey are having. These black and white images aren’t here to further your Instagram aesthetic, they’re here for a cause. So if you cannot use your caption to talk about the cause, DO NOT UPLOAD A PICTURE. And if you really want to, don’t use the hashtag (#ChallengeAccepted) because you’re only filling up space that is otherwise needed to talk about a pressing issue. Naomi Watts, Natalie Portman, Gal Gadot, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Anushka Sharma and many wonderful women are posting their selfies too, and while some of their captions talk about female empowerment, they don’t talk about Turkey, about the origin of this challenge. Instagram currently has 5.3 million uploads under this hashtag alone. #WomenSupportingWomen, #BlackAndWhiteChallenge are two more trending hashtags with increasing numbers. And we’re just adding to the crowd. Your selfie is adding to the crowd. Don’t get us wrong, we love your pictures. We love it when women come together and show the world that the future us female. But this is not the best way to do it. Taking part in a challenge also means talking about the challenge and no challenge ever stops at being just an aesthetic cause. Times travel reporter Tariro Mzezewa, in a thread of tweets, said, “#ChallengeAccepted was making zero sense to me and I wasn’t buying that it was just for vanity’s sake. Talked to some women in Turkey this AM who say it started there as a response to them being frustrated over always seeing black and white photos of women who have been killed." TALK ABOUT WHAT MATTERS. Because if we don’t, no one else will. Stand up for humanity, we’ve only got each other.
