Everything We Learnt From Deepika Padukone's Stylist Shaleena Nathani

Get ready to take notes!

It’s no secret that celebrities have stylists to pick out clothes for them to wear to each and every public event. One of these celebrity stylists is responsible for dressing one of the best-dressed women this country has seen. Shaleena Nathani is the force behind Deepika Padukone’s strong sartorial game, which somehow just keeps getting better and better.

Together they’re a team to be reckoned with and tbh, we wouldn’t have it any other way. Nathani occasionally styles superstars like Shah Rukh Khan and other actresses like Kriti Sanon, Alia Bhatt and Jacqueline Fernandez from time to time.

So of course, we’ve learnt a whole lot of lessons from her styling game, most of them through what she puts on Deepika’s back.

Covered up can still be sexy

It’s a misconstrued fact that you need to strip down to keep it sexy. Going by Deepika’s all-covered-up outfits, you can see that she’s a smoke show without showing off too much. The trick here lies in that bombshell makeup and hair she has on, and let’s not leave out those sexy stilettos!


Matchy-matchy will never go out of style

When was the last time you wore a blue top with a blue skirt and blue shoes to match? Shaleena stuck to the metallic and shine theme for all three pieces and put together they make one hell of a combination.


It’s cool to repeat

You can only be a true fashionista if you can wear one piece in several different ways. Stock up on your basics and match them with statement pieces as you go. No two outfits will look the same if you’re smart about it.


Oversized is always better… and comfier

All black will never let you down

We didn’t really need more proof that this was actually a thing, but now that Deepika’s stylist advocates it, we’re truly convinced of its powers. All black everything has a way of looking so good, it’s a shame we can’t wear it all day everyday. Or can we?


Don’t be afraid to mix prints

Mixing prints is something people often shy away from. It’s quite a lot to handle and for someone who likes solid shades only (me) it just doesn’t feel right. But the key to doing this right is mixing prints in the same color family. Take Deepika’s stripes and polka dots combo for instance. They work because it’s the same shade of black and white.
