Shilpa Shetty Just Gave Us The Awesomest Version Of This Hit International Trend

It was the Spring 2015 runway which introduced us to several skirt layering options. There was the ‘skirts on pants’ trend, the ‘skirts on skirts’ trend, the ‘dresses on skirts’ trend and then there was the ‘skirts on dresses’ trend. Roughly a year thereafter, we saw Bella Hadid popularising the trend as part of her street style and then it was Shraddha Kapoor who brought the international hot trend to the Bollywood fashion circuits. But it is Shilpa Shetty who just gave us the most brilliant version of the fad. While Bella and Shraddha both worked mini skirts over mini dresses that barely peeked from underneath the skirt, Shilpa went ahead and teamed her mini with a maxi dress. Yes, she really did!

Here, take a look…

What She Wore

Styled by Mohit Rai, Shilpa was seen wearing a white drop-shoulder maxi dress by Esse. This was then layered with a belted brown mini skirt featuring a side-zipper detail from the same label.

Shoes & Accessories

Shilpa’s lean and tall frame was further accentuated with a pair of monochromatic, snakeskin heels by Uterque and her look was accessorised with a pair of gold hoops and a statement gold ring, both courtesy of Misho.

Hair & Makeup

Shilpa’s highlighted hair was left down with a slightly off-centre parting and her look was rounded off with her signature strong brows, smoky eyes and soft cherry-tinged lips.


Frankly, we’ve always been in favour of the ‘skirt over dress’ trend so to receive a version that beautifully negotiates the territory between chic and classy was a dream come true. And we have Mohit and Shilpa to thank for it. With her forever-on-fleek hair and makeup, her beautiful baubles and her innate poise, Shilpa’s spelt absolute perfection with this look. We, for one, are definitely giving this version of the fad a try STAT!
