5 Kickass Office Wear Trends From Bollywood and Hollywood


Going to work can be a boring affair if you present yourself in better-hide-it-in-the-closet or give-them-away-right-now kind of clothes day after day. Update your office dress code and life up your spirits with these 5 kickass office wear trends inspired from movies.

Kareena Kapoor Khan’s sleek dress and blazer look

We love this sleek look of Kareena Kapoor Khan in the recently released movie ‘Ki and Ka’. The brown colour may be non-descript, but the neckline is surely interesting. And what makes this brown dress more interesting is the cropped black blazer that it’s been paired with. Black high heels and a messy ponytail completes the look of a successful power woman. Wear diamond studs, your wedding ring (if you have one) and a watch. Remember, the idea is to keep your look neat, yet stylish.

Anne Hathaway’s polished, chic look

If you have watched ‘The Intern’, we are sure you would have fallen in love with Anne Hathaway and her comfortable and chic office attire. Jules (Anne Hathaway) is the CEO of a fashion startup, but she is also a doting wife and a mother. Her look has all the elements of high-end fashion, and practicality blended into one. The knitted black top, slim red trousers, white tuxedo jacket and leopard print pumps, give Jules a fun look. Her ensemble is perfect for an impromptu meeting, a business lunch or a PTA at your kid’s school. Wear a gold chain and gold hoops to complete the look.
Go for this style – classic, chic and modern...and you are sorted for your corporate life.

Deepika Padukone’s stylish and functional look

A real style icon, Deepika Padukone has effortlessly carried off the traditional as well as the modern look on screen and off screen. However, in the movie ‘Piku’, her clothes were stylish, yet equally relaxing for an entire day in office. A traditional kurti with cotton palazzo pants, and comfortable mojris are ideal for a weekday attire, and lends you a powerful look of an independent woman. And the blue jeans and a long kurti will give your Friday a much dressy look and will see you through a late night drinks date with your colleagues. If you aren’t having a bad hair day, keep your hair loose for a soft endearing look. For an Indo-western look, wear silver bangles/bracelet and large hoops.

Meryl Streep’s powerful and sophisticated look

As an all-powerful fashion magazine editor, the successful Miranda Priestley in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ is the last word in fashion. She carries herself in style, and according to her age. This all black long sleeve V-neck dress with a wide leather belt is one of the many beautiful and stylish dresses that Meryl Streep has worn in this movie. 

Miranda is obviously fond of gold jewellery; we would recommend to go easy on the bling though. Wear a statement gold necklace or a long gold chain with a big pendant. If you are wearing big gold hoops, pair it with a less conspicuous, delicate gold chain. Wear a gold watch and a cool sutra (if you are married) on your wrist with a dazzling diamond pendant, and you will look very much the executive in command.

Alia Bhatt’s girl-next-door look

We loved Alia Bhatt in ‘2 States’, we are sure you liked her too! The sweet girl next door look is so her! In her simple cotton dresses, silver jewellery and minimal make up, she looks very much the epitome of today’s young women who know their mind and are poised for success. Alternatively, you can wear diamond earrings and a delicate diamond studded bracelet.

Whoever said you can’t wear gold and diamond jewellery to the office have obviously taken birth in the wrong century. Flaunt your real jewellery to the office; absolutely no harm in it...just do not wear it altogether. You wouldn’t want to look like a mobile jewellery shop, do you?

Hope these office wear ideas shall get you from Mondays to Fridays. And, Saturdays or Sundays too, if work comes calling!
