With her recent Filmfare win for the Best Debut Actor Female in ‘Student of the Year 2’, Ananya Panday is a star on the rise. Even though she is not a veteran, she is already making the right moves when it comes to fashion. In 2017, she was a part of the prestigious Le Bal in Paris, where as a debutante images of her in a Jean Paul Gaultier gown made rounds on social media.

Since then, her every appearance sealed her status as an upcoming fashion star. One look at her Instagram feed will prove that Panday can slip into a cool pair of track pants, a cocktail dress, and an uber glam lehenga with an equal panache. Her most recent red carpet moment in a two piece ensemble by Dylan Parienty puts her much further in the league of those attuned to the best of trend.

For those of you who are looking for some much-needed, millennial dress inspiration, maybe Panday’s looks can give you a few cues.

Track pants done right

Though there are some who still consider track pants to be comfort indoor dressing, its transition into a veritable symbol of street style has made it anything but. Panday perhaps feels the same, and has pulled them into her fashion canvas. Her pairing of the moss green velvet track pants with a bra top is all kinds of summer goals. If you think it is too risque to pull the look together, think of pairing those track pants with a buttoned down linen shirt. We do not recommend going easy on heels – keep them high and sleek.

Solid colours are a rage

Summer dressing is high on colours, and solid hues are great. An undiluted tone of lively blue can pack a perfect punch. This dress, with its ruched detailing, exaggerated sleeve, and a thigh-grazing slit gives it a Coachela-meets-Cannes vibe.

Summer appropriate layering

Layering is  an art, and it’s not just for winters. A light robe with a pair of trousers is done to death, so instead let the top peak out and belt the robe round your waist. The same idea can be replicated with a pair of jeans or trousers. This green head-to-toe look on Panday is summer done right.

Pussy bow blouses are here to stay

There is something lady-like about a classic pussy bow blouse. From Melania Trump to Emma Stone to Kangana Ranaut, many have favoured them, and the latest one is Panday – she wore a black pussy bow blouse with a Sabyasachi embroidered skirt at the designer’s show in Mumbai last week. The slouchy blouse is perfect for summers, and can be paired with jeans or any other kind of skirt.

Don’t add any other accessory to the look – let simplicity speak.
