How many of you’ll remember the fad of keeping it simple with your tops and going bold with your bottoms? Well, we sure do ‘coz we keep up with western and desi trends alike and loved this one in particular. It’s not often that we go bold with our pants and this trend encouraged just that. Seen more in the ethnic space, the fad was all about keeping it plain with a simple kurti on top but going all out with printed pants or a textured skirt or a some snazzy palazzos.

Recently spotted at the Deva Deva song launch of Marathi movie Bhikari, Alia looked her pretty self and we couldn’t help but notice that the young actress was sporting the bygone trend in complete elegance. She sported what we’d like to call a fusion of sorts and we loved it, bet you will too.

What She Wore

Styled by Ami Patel, Alia had on what looked like a peach full length kurti from Jade by Monica and Karishma. The sleeveless kurti was embellished with silver work and was high from the front and grazed the floor from the behind. She paired the look with a pair of piped grey printed pants. The top was relatively simple while the pant had a lot going on which balanced out the whole look perfectly.

Shoes & Accessories

The actress teamed the look with a pair of metallic strappy heels that were match-y match-y  to her pants and she went with bold ethnic earring from Shrinagar to give the look that added touch of elegance. She kept it simple elsewhere and it worked perfectly well.

Hair & Makeup

Alia went with hair stylist Ayesha DeVitre for her hair. Alia‘s hair was taken back partly and left loose otherwise in soft curls. She went with a pink-ish glow with her makeup to match her top. Her makeup was done by celebrity makeup artist Shraddha Naik for the event.


We salute Alia for bringing back a bygone trend and carrying it off as well as she did. We loved how Alia has managed to balance her get-up perfectly by keeping it simple with her top and going rather bold with her pants. The trend can be quite a disaster to pull off if the pant doesn’t go well with the top. However, in this case, Alia’s cigar pants match well with the silver embellishments on her otherwise plain top. We think this look could be apt for a friend’s wedding or even a sangeet! What say?
