Katrina Kaif and Jacqueline Fernandez Are Bringing Back the 70s Lace-Up Trend
Jacqueline Fernandez donned a lemon yellow coloured lace-up mini, teaming it up with a black and gold belt on her birthday last month. This week, Kat sported a lace-up accented dress for Manish Malhotra’s success bash!
Minimal accents on a plain-jane outfit can make all the difference. From Bollywood films introducing many trends to Indian cinema fashionistas bringing back yesteryear fads, there is a whole lot of leading ladies to take inspiration from. The past month has seen the likes of A-listers, Jacqueline Fernandez and Katrina Kaif, throwing it back to the 70s with their recent looks. If you’re looking to elevate the cool girl quotient, all you need to do is incorporate the now-trending lace-up staple in your outfit. While the trend seems to be catching up big time this season, here is a lowdown on two well-done versions of it.
But, hang on for a minute! It seems like both Kat and Jackie have also taken cue from none other than Alia Bhatt, who rocked the lace-up look back in late 2016. It was undoubtedly the first time Alia let go of her ‘girly-girl’ avatar and went from cute to sexy in a jiffy. She donned a crème coloured lace-up mini, teaming it up with a black and gold belt. She finished off her look with pointy-toed gold stilettos that stood out.
While many would opt for such an ensemble for a night time look, the Student of the Year star made it an easy breezy look as she opted for a neutral colour. She kept her makeup minimal (in the same way has been acing the no-makeup look these days) and let the focus on her trendy attire and smokey eyes.
While we give credit to Alia for donning the 70s trend back in the day, other B-town girls have caught onto it now. On a recent birthday vacation, Jacqueline put her best foot forward as she holidayed in Sri Lanka. During her visit to Colombo, she headed with close friends and family for a day cruise and sported the prettiest outfit. The bright yellow off-the-shoulder number feautured lace-up detailing at its neck.
The Race 3 starlet cut a sleek figure in the crop top and matching skirt. With the hemline short and sleeves tapered, she worked the lace-up trend just right. Her skirt also featured the crisscross detailing and was completed in ruffles and layering. The high-low silhouette provided for the perfect casual yet chic vibe.
Following suit, Katrina Kaif turned up in a lace-up dress for Manish Malhotra’s big bash following the Lakme Fashion Week. She was not only the renowned designer’s showstopper but her after-party outfit exuded major #showstopping vibes too.
The Bharat star was clad in a baby pink spaghetti strap dress that comprised lace-up accents on both the sides. It definitely added to the oomph factor of an already toned down and simple look.
While she kept her eye makeup on the heavier side, Katrina opted for minimal makeup on the rest of her face. A nude glossy pout and tinted cheeks made her look like a true star.
Not only this, her long tresses were done in an outward blowdry, creating waves of volume. Yes, we are swooning over the 36-year-old star if you could not tell already! The golden strappy stilettoes screamed elegance to the max.
