Alia Bhatt’s Desi Wardrobe for Petites.

Posted June 01, 2016

If you keep an eye out for Alia Bhatt’s style as much as we do, you’d notice that she doesn’t bring out her Indian-wear very often. Maybe because she prefers figure hugging western wear? That said, when she does, she pulls out the good stuff, and looks like a different person altogether. Sure, it’s great when she steps out in those cute sneakers and shorts; but it’s when she puts on an elegant lehenga that she looks really exceptional and is an inspiration to every petite girl out there.


We picked out some of the best traditional outfits in Alia Bhatt’s wardrobe that still show off her fantastic figure to best effect - and you’re going to want them as much as you’ll love seeing them.


In Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla


Nothing looks more elegant that a white lehenga with an embroidered kurta to match. Alia is an absolute vision in Abu Sandeep, and the maroon accent as well as the way her dupatta is draped makes all the difference. The shorter top stops this heavy number from drowning her.

In Manish Malhotra


When you’re attending a sangeet, (even if it's of Fashion Queen Masaba Gupta) it’s always a good idea to ditch the dupatta – who needs that extra hassle, and it just drowns you right? Alia’s Manish Malhotra number comes with a top as a blouse paired with a full, embroidered lehenga.

In Tisha Saksena


Once again in white and minus a dupatta, Alia wore this to a Navratri party. The wrapped kurta and churidar keeps the look traditional and functional at the same time – win-win! And the synched in waist adds definition.

In Reynu Tandon


Make sure you bookmark this white trouser suit for all those family poojas and Diwali card parties. It’s easy to wear and looks as chic as it is effortless.

Here’s the thing with white on white; no matter how you wear it, it always works wonders and petite girls can totally get away with it. Alia picked a white Kashmiri aari work kurta, with a slit down the front so her white pajamas peeked through. For a daytime formal event, the outfit is perfect!

In Payal Singhal


Another favorite in Alia’s ethnic collection is this blush pink and mint one from Payal Singhal. Baby pink and floral all over, it’s an ideal pick for the quintessential girl-next-door.

And if you're really not convinced on full ethnic wear, next time you decide to wear a lehenga, leave your blouse at home and pair it with a shirt instead. The Indo-Western twist will spice up your look and if you’re looking to stand out, it doesn’t get much cooler than this!
