Celebrities seem to have been busy little beavers this season as work/social commitments have kept them on their toes. From lawn launches and big, fat weddings to meeting stars from across the border in Dubai, their plates have been nothing short of full. Despite working around the clock, they’ve made sure that their style game is on point. We’ve certainly learnt a thing or two from them and we suggest you do too.
Skirts, lehngas, lawn joras and ruffled tops, there is a plethora of choices available this season so why stop at plain kurtis paired with cigarette pants ? Scroll down to get inspired otherwise.
