How to Rock a Long Coat a la Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor
A good winter coat will take you through the whole season in style. We look at how Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor style the long coat and how you can too
As we are slowly starting to transition from winter into Spring, the weather is changing and our wardrobes too will change in time. While a new season is upon us, there is still a slight chill in the air and this could be your last chance to wear your winter wardrobe. From cable knit sweaters, to your chic turtle necks and delicate cashmere sweaters, winter is the chance for you to wear your finest winter gear and keep warm at the same time. Another winter staple is a warm, practical coat that will take you from the beginning of the season to the very end.
We recently came across two Bollywood celebrities who opted for a long winter coat and upped their style quotient instantly by teaming the coat with their ensembles. Something to keep in mind is that a winter coat should be practical, a colour that can be paired with all your ensembles and versatile enough to be styled in a variety of ways. And there are two Bollywood divas that did complete justice to the winter coat and we show you how.
Deepika Padukone was recently in Davos, Switzerland where she attended the World Economic Forum’s Crystal Award Ceremony and shared glimpses of her trip on her Instagram stories with her fans and followers. She also shared a series of pictures of an all-white look and she was the epitome of all things chic in the look. The starlet was clad in a pair of crisp white pants which were teamed with a silk blouse featuring an oversized bow.
A second picture revealed that the blouse was also adorned with feathers around the neck. The ensemble was teamed with a pair of white Manolo Blahnik but what really stood out for us was the cream coloured coat thrown over her ensemble. The long coat was almost ankle-length and was in a slight contrast to the pristine white of her ensemble. The coat also featured a statement collar and a lapel and we want to steal this look stat! Deepika Padukone opted for a sleek bun and subtle sultry makeup rounded off with a nude pout. One of our fave Deepika Padukone looks thus far!
Meanwhile in Paris, Sonam Kapoor was invited to attend the Jean Paul Gaultier showcase at Paris Fashion Week. For her look at the show, she tried to create a fusion between east meets west. The actress, who is an avid user of social media, took to her Instagram account and shared a series of pictures of herself in which she is clad in an all-black ensemble by Jean Paul Gaultier.
The ensemble featured a pair of black flared pants which was teamed with a matching layered one-shoulder top. The top featured leather detailing along the top and a statement sleeve. The fusion ensemble was a blend between a pant suit and a western suit creating a fusion look. Sonam Kapoor teamed the black ensemble with a statement silver necklace by Amrapali jewels which gave the look an eastern edge. The Veere Di Wedding actress always knows how to add a twist to each look and in this case, she did so with a cream coloured coat.
The coat was almost floor length and was the perfectly subtle contrast to her otherwise all-black look. For her hair and makeup look, Sonam Kapoor opted for a loose bun, smokey eyes and a glossy nude lip. As always, Sonam Kapoor was styled by her sister and stylist, Rhea Kapoor and left heads turning at the Jean Paul Gaultier show.
The coats sported by these two starlets are proof that a good winter coat will take you a long way. Invest in a good coat that suits your silhouette and it will certainly last you all season-long.
