The alignment of your stars may reveal a lot about you, but so does the outfit you are sitting in right now. Whether it’s a ruffled blouse, ribbed tank top or one-size-fits-all sleep shirt, you know who you are. By this time, under lockdown, a look at your sartorial picks will answer the looming question, “Do we dress up for others or for ourselves?”.
The answer doesn’t matter, as long as it makes you happy. In case it makes you feel better to find others alike, keep scrolling to find out celebrity style twin. Don’t blame us if it’s not what you expected.
The TikTok stars
Cupboard full of crop tops, distressed denim shorts, oversized shirts, golden hoops and a fluffy bathrobe. Sounds familiar? It’s what Alaya F and Ananya Panday are wearing at home under lockdown to film their TikTok videos and prep for virtual photoshoots. So if you ever find yourself at a creative block for your own feeds, you know where to find DIY star-like inspiration.
Yes, she’s self-isolating on a farm and yes, she’s always spending time outdoors, but no, her white crop tops and cut-off denims are notgetting soiled. Jacqueline Fernandez seems to have packed well for her time under lockdown—from off-shoulder blouses and midi summer dresses to detailed pilates wear, it’s all there. Do you too put in those extra 10 minutes to fluff out your hair, layer your jewellery and pick up the highlighter? Then you’ve met your match.
The lazy girls
If your lockdown checklist includes baking, reading, sipping coffee, getting a haircut and cleaning your junk drawers, we know what you are wearing. Roomy hoodies, shorts and slogan T-shirts have gained the vote of approval from Karisma Kapoor and Kriti Sanon as well. Not to be confused with boring, but Kapoor’s quarantine uniform of choice makes dressing at home a lot less daunting.
The working professionals
Always struggling to find that sweet spot between professional and comfort dressing? Make smart casuals your go-tos during this time, just like Priyanka Chopra. Always in luxurious knit skirt sets and printed turtlenecks to sharp blazers, the global superstar has not resorted to pyjamas yet. Over to Anushka Sharma, who makes casual T-shirts look just as acceptable on Zoom. Even when she is hanging out with Virat Kohli and her pets, she’s dressed in a striped linen shirt—ready to face the camera the next minute.
The fitness freaks
For fitness enthusiasts like these Bollywood stars, being confined in their city homes does not get in the way of keeping fit. If you too spend your days in printed leggings and tank tops after a de-stressing morning routine, then go though Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Bipasha Basu’s at-home closets for some more sartorial inspiration. While the former is a pro at picking standout athletic sets, Basu’s looking forward to that post-workout picture each time.
Love to play dress up
On a live chat from home during the lockdown, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja admitted that dressing up every day made her “feel really good”. So if you too are guilty of using your closet as your playground during your months at home, you’re not alone. Take styling cues from the star’s outfits that often combine wardrobe basics and statement jewellery into noteworthy looks. See how Kapoor Ahuja styled her cotton maxi dress with gold earrings, added a statement watch to a printed dress and dressed up a typical light-washed denim shirt with chunky oxidised silver jewellery. The choker and statement earrings were a quick and easy way to add a bohemian vibe to the workwear staple.
The nature lover
Through her Instagram community of over four million followers, actor and activist Dia Mirza shares her message on conservation and environmental ethics. While the nature of her social content during the lockdown has maintained that mindful ethos, her choice of dressing reflected it too. Mirza faces the camera from home in printed cotton blouses, embroidered kurtas and homespun dresses. If you find yourself reaching for breathable fabrics and muted colours, Mirza is your nature-loving, compositing style twin.
