As per industry standards, the ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’ star Alaya Furniturewala may be a newbie, but one look at her Instagram feed will tell you more about her evolved fashion choices. The 22-year-old actor aces the art of snapping a perfect selfie, picking the right filter, and being candid with her captions. Even though her social media feed exudes a true millennial vibe, her acting chops reflect her understanding of the big screen.
This New York Film Academy graduate made her debut opposite Saif Ali Khan in the movie ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’ earlier this year. But this doesn’t mean that she is new to fame — Furniturewala participated in a beauty contest with her mom Pooja Bedi in a reality TV show ‘Maa Exchange’ at Sony Entertainment, and has also been facilitated with Balak Ratna National Art Award in 2013 for excellence in art.
There’s an evolved sense of style as well. For those of you on a lookout for perfect summer inspiration, we chalk out Alaya Furniturewala’s top looks to get inspired by.
Ethnics for summer
Yes, one can never go wrong with an exquisitely embroidered ethnic ensemble in summers. And when everything is right about the look, why not turn it into a mini photoshoot — which is exactly what the young star did.
Ditsy, dramatic, monochromatic and avant-garde, the floral trend is a fixture in every fashion-forward wardrobe, and this summer dress on Alaya is a winning look.
What is summer without a hint of striking hues? Reds, oranges and a dash of neat yellows, and your summer colour wheel is done. But why opt for a simple day dress when you can go for more dramatic options. This Lavish Alice number of Alaya is summer goals.
Get your gym look
Gyms might be shut but prepping for a home workout doesn’t harm anyone. Puma infuses your look with a dash of bright colours, and Alaya agrees.
Tulle or nothing
When it comes to the red carpet, why go simple. There is nothing better than a Marchesa tulle gown to register your front-row presence among the big league Bollywood fashion fixtures, and Alaya does complete justice to the look.
Keep it chic
Statement tops are a summer essential. We’d say pick the one that suits your vibe. As an ensemble, this July Issue denim top and jeans look makes it for a winning look. You can opt for something similar in black and white.
Coachella done right
Eclectic prints and patterns for summer is never a bad idea. Think contemporary take on paisleys, Aztec, miniature paints inspired prints, and much more. You don’t need to go to Coachella to slip into a music festival-inspired look. This Hemant and Nandita ensemble on Alaya is breezy to perfection.
Just in case you are planning to opt for a fancy jumpsuit, maybe graduate towards their cropped cousins, playsuits, for summer. They look fresh, chic and are a perfect millennial approved trend for summer. This rendition by Madison on Alaya is just what we are looking for.
Leave it to Bollywood starlets on how to make a trend of their own. Drazers is already a major celebrity-approved trend, and this one featuring art/patchwork Shahin Mannon, deep green drazer is what closet goals are made of.
Denim on denim (on denim)
Denim on denim is an everlasting trend, and we love the way celebrities creat their season-appropriate version for the same. Alaya, once again, in this head-to-toe July Issue denim look is perfection.
Get over the usual denim, leather, or even cotton shorts for summers. This wiper print pair of Fuss Pot shorts prove that Alaya is up for experimenting with looks. A statement shorts and an off-shoulder t-shirt is an off-duty look done with a bit of glam.
