THE TEE AND JEANS CLASSIC COMBO If there is a single iconic fashion statement to be chosen for this entire century, it is the jeans and tee. A style that everyone can pull off no matter what sex, race, age, income group or country you hail from! Here Kareena takes it a notch higher with yet another classic trench coat in camel. You can practically make an impact anywhere on earth with this look. An extremely versatile look, you can team it with a Lavie Marigold Tote in grey. Wear boots or sky-high heels with this depending on whether you want to go adventurous or girly. It is a win-win combo both ways!!
THE COCKTAIL SAREE The cocktail saree has indeed brought the age- old traditional classic instantly onto the ramps and into our wardrobes! Look at how Kareena upgrades her black georgette with a Swarovski detailed saree and bandeau blouse, and teams it up with statement drop earrings! With the wedding season beckoning, this is a must-have look for every girl. Go for pop colours in sarees as well and be the absolute centre of attraction at any celebration! Imagine how cool a Lavie Peppermint Dome Satchel in black will look with this ensemble. Sometimes it is cool to try new things and everyone carries clutches with sarees, so go do something different!
THE ANARKALI Kareenaâ€™s stunning cream Anarkali is even hotter because of its plunging backline, an interesting twist to the usual! The fine feminine detailing on the neck and the shimmer of the fabric all make this a perfect look for a day event. Sangeet ceremonies and mehendi ceremonies where you have to be active, and maybe even dance to a Kareena hit from Bollywood, are just the thing. Best worn with slinky heels in a metallic shade and a lot of blingy bangles. The Lavie Anise Satchel in cream will be a perfect match with the outfit.
TIGHTS AND OVERSIZED SHIRT Tights are the perfect wear for travel where comfort is the priority, with hours of flying ahead of you. This look allows you comfort with great style. Although tights come in myriad shades and prints, Kareena opts for the classic black and teams them with a cool, crisp white shirt with ruffled detailing for an added feminine appeal. A simple, uncluttered high ponytail is very practical too. The accessories are all from the same colour family, brown. This is an interesting thing to note and follow when matching accessories. Knee high boots are so very in right now and the Hobo is spacious enough for all your must-carry stuff while traveling! Check out the Lavie Gooseberry Hobo in classic brown, it will make you a really stylish traveler for sure!
THE GOLD GOWN The evening gown in gold is absolutely the en vogue item now! The new age drape and asymmetrical figure-skimming silhouette is perfect for the diva in you. Gold is also a colour that suits most Indian skin tones and adds a subtle glow to your complexion. Keeping the gown decluttered is the key to achieving this classic Oscar statuette look. Pair with slinky heels and simple gold accessories for added glamour. Team it with a Lavie Clove Large Tote in khaki for that additional glamour quotient.
BOOTLEG JEANS WITH PLATFORMS The bootleg jeans with platforms look is a wonderful throwback to sixties chic and a definite winner any time of the day. This look can easily go from day to evening with a few smart make-up changes, and don’t we all just love that! The tuxedoinspired jacket with satin lapels is a steal from the men’s wardrobe and a good one too! You can team a versatile jacket like this with an LBD, a summer frock, a skirt and blouse, the list is virtually endless! To make this look even more interesting, you can try Lavie’s Basil Boat Bag in camel for a mix-and-match style.
THE CLASSIC COCKTAIL DRESS Kareenaâ€™s knee length cocktail dress in tangerine is young and dynamic and the saree drape is very inspired and in. The saree drape is, incidentally, quite the rage worldwide with major design houses like Gucci, Versace and now Karl Lagerfeld, going Indian for inspiration en masse. The relaxed silhouette lets you move and be at ease while lending a really dressy appeal at the same time. Lavieâ€™s Cassia Box Bag would look absolutely smashing with an orange dress like this. Do try!
THE INIMITABLE PUNJABI KUDI LOOK The inimitable Patiala salwar kameez is a classic that will always get you compliments at any wedding or celebration. Vivacious and contemporary, this combination is great because you can colour block and how! Splurge on candy pinks which do wonders for your complexion, an added bonus girls!

Wear all the funky bangles and earrings you love so much and I can bet you will draw all the attention at any do. Try a Lavie Hemptree Small Hobo in peach or orange to go with this look.
THE SEQUINED LBD The little black dress is a must in your wardrobe come party season and one with sequins all over is so much more chic! Bling is the flavour this year end, so pile it on girls. With your dress so bling, you can absolutely do away with accessories. Just put on your highest sky-high heels and you are good to go. You can pull back your hair high or just leave it loose and keep the make-up simple with a nice vibrant red lipstick and a touch of blush. A Lavie Heather Small Hobo in steel grey will be a perfect fit for this ensemble.
THE SHORT DENIM SKIRT We all know that this year the denim hot pants, hot shorts, crotch shorts and the lot have been done to death. Thank God,here Kareena has the perfect solution to how to flaunt your long legs and yet avoid the hot shorts route! The mini skirt in denim is a classic and was popularized in the sixties by the first-ever divas. So, if you have the legs and the style, go for this look and in the winter you can team it with cool knee high boots. Head gear too is in and scouting the high streets for some funky hats and caps is definitely a good idea. Notice how Kareena rocks the Voilet Box Bag with this look? Nice touch. Keep this look de-cluttered and see the compliments coming.
THE CHHAMMAK CHHALLO LOOK Kareena is back with a bang this season with her new and healthier avatar, and thank God, because this is the body type that is great for us Indian girls! The horrible size zero days are behind us so we can enjoy our mitthais and our bodies like we were meant to. The classic red chiffon saree is a stalwart of the Indian wedding wardrobe and with good reason. Red looks wonderful on any skin tone and can carry bling like no other. Pile on jewellery like bangles, necklaces, earrings and even a cool waist chain like Kareena, and do a Chhammak Chhallo look this wedding season. The chiffon blouse with bandeau top inside is also a lovely twist on the basic saree blouse. But you can go funkier with halter blouses or even spaghetti straps to up the oomph factor. Pair this saree look with an Acacia Mini Satchel in brown for a complete look
