When it comes to movies, Deepika Padukone doesn’t just work hard, she works smart. As a successful multi-hyphenate, the savvy 31-year-old knows exactly how to focus on her strengths. Sanjay Leela Bhansali script? Yes please. Period drama with Ranveer Singh for a co-star? She’ll have three of those, thank you very much. Likewise, when it comes to living up to the mantle of the most fashionable lady in showbiz, she knows how to apply the winning formula right and play up her strong points.
Swipe through her off-duty looks, and you’ll find a science emerging through her casually-thrown-together ensembles. And well, whether you’re the busiest woman in Bollywood or a crisis-riddled millennial, there’s no denying the welcome relief of an algorithm doing all the work for you and solving the routine ‘what do I wear’ dilemma. If you’re looking for a go-to mantra for your closet—without looking like you’re wearing the same outfit all the time—here are the wardrobe staples that Padukone personally swears by.
The easiest way to convert your entire wardrobe into desk-to-drinks material? Invest in a statement jacket, or three. Padukone likes hers to push the envelope, from patent leather to technicolour fringe. Start out simple with your favourite wardrobe basics as the base, throw on an OTT jacket as the finishing touch, and watch those heads turn.
White tank top
While Padukone does appreciate the transformative powers of an edgy jacket, she knows better than to have too much of a good thing. With an eyeball-grabbing jacket doing all the hard work, she keeps the rest of her outfit simple, allowing the humble white tank top to regularly cinch her outfits together.
When you’re shuffling between continents trying to keep up with your busy social calendar, a dainty sling bag just won’t hold it all together. Padukone has a soft spot for tote bags—the roomier, the better. The Chanel Deauville tote occupies pride of place in her star-studded wardrobe, followed by a Céline Phantom in Croc Skin Black and a Saint Laurent Sac de Jour.
We aren’t talking daintily distressed here. When shopping for denims, Padukone makes a beeline for busted knees, slashed hems and undone seams. For those days when you can’t even, follow her lead—throw on a basic white shirt and allow a statement making pair of distressed jeans to do all the talking for you.
While the world remains fixated with white sneakers, the Padmavati stunner regularly works in some no-nonsense chic into her ensembles with classic tan shoes. Loafers, espadrilles, laced-up booties—you won’t find her discriminating when it comes to this elegant wardrobe staple.
