We are crushing on the sunny colours our B-town divas are stepping into - from cheerful pinks to sunny yellows to cool blues. The endearing Shraddha Kapoor always gives us fashion goals with her fresh dewy minimal makeup and chic style. We loved her one-shouldered loud pink satin pantsuit at the trailer launch of her film Haseena Parkar. With her mid-parted hairdo and shoulder-grazing colourful floral danglers, Shraddha looked at her cheerful best.

Stripe- teaseThey are dominating the runways this season. Vertical or horizontal, stripes are everywhere whether in classic pinstriped officewear or cool casual outfits. If worn right, it can accentuate your curves. The B-town beauties too are bitten by the stripe bug. Take a cue from Raabta actress Kriti Sanon who knows how to rock the stripe look. We loved her sporty airport style of a navy blue and white striped jumpsuit teamed with just a ring.

Get the look: If the top has a busy floral print, go minimal with one pair of jewellery. Studs are your best bet. If you are sporting neckpieces, try a thin chain with a pendant along with a ring.
