Power suits or pantsuits are fashionable, comfortable, trendy and most importantly command your attention. These masculine styled ‘trouser suits’ were introduced in the 1920s. Lately, Bollywood actresses have shown a penchant for the female power dressing in their role as that of a fashion influencer. While sarees and gowns remain the first choice of an Indian actress when it comes to a special occasion, one cannot deny the rise of pantsuits in recent times. And when these women suits are worn in hot pink colour, their charm is irresistible. How to Wear the Jacket Right: Learn From Priyanka Chopra, Madhuri Dixit, Sonam Kapoor and Other Bollywood Divas.
We have seen the likes of Sonam Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Alia Bhatt don fuchsia pink power suit on formal outings and now with Kangana taking her love for the aforementioned combination to an airport, it is grabbing more eyeballs. Here are our best power suit moments by the beautiful Bollywood female celebrities.
1. Kangana Ranaut
Her last few airport looks were all about being traditional, be it her white saree or blue salwar suit with floral threadwork. But Kangana switched her style back to modern in her latest airport appearance. The 31-year-old wore a pantsuit in rose pink colour with a basic crew neck white tee. Talking about the pantsuit, it was a straight ankle pant with a perfectly tailored jacket with big buttons. Kangana wore white sneakers, carried a Gucci sling bag and a pair of shades to round off her airport look.
2. Sonam Kapoor
Expect only the best and unique sartorial display from the true-blue fashionista of Bollywood, Sonam Kapoor. On two occasions, the 33-year-old showed us how to style a pink power dress. Firstly, it was during the movie promotion of Padman, which took Sonam to IWC Schaffhausen event in Geneva, Switzerland. It was a rouge pink ensemble by Bouguessa with the actress wearing a double-breasted blazer with culottes and an overcoat. Sonam completed her look by wearing Stuart Weitzman boots and Marni earrings in oxblood.
Another stylish pant-suit moment of Sonam Kapoor came up during the Veere Di Wedding film promotions. She chose to wear printed cropped pants and jacket from Georgian fashion designer, Keti Chkhikvadze. Sonam wore a high collar white shirt with it. The embellished blazer with pearl details was the highlight of her attire. She complemented her look around it, wearing pearl statement earrings, black and pink Jimmy Choo pointed heels and box bag from Rheson.
3. Deepika Padukone
We have seen her in power suits and rocking pink colour outfits, but separately. Barring one occasion, a long time ago (quite forgettable), Deepika is yet to nail the powerful combination of a pink power suit.
4. Alia Bhatt
Alia Bhatt is your millennial fashion icon. The 25-year-old actress has shown her impeccable taste in fashion by wearing something that’s elegant and also reflects her age. Take, for example, her outing in this pantsuit for a corporate event. Alia chose a sharp power suit in dark strawberry pink from Top Shop, which she teamed up with a camisole. With a pair of clear heels, high ponytail and fresh makeup, Alia looked set to take over the world.
5. Priyanka Chopra
Coming to the Queen P, who showed us nothing is over-the-top in her case. Priyanka channelled a shocking pink pantsuit from Sergio Hudson, a ready-to-wear label while attending Penguin's annual lecture. Featuring a wrap neckline with big buttons adorning the sides of the pant and an overcoat, which took the female power dressing to another level. Her accessories like the gold hoop earrings, blow-dried long bob hairstyle and chunky strappy heels were all on fleek.
6. Anushka Sharma
If there’s anyone who reminds you of ‘Boss Lady’ in Bollywood, it has to be Anushka Sharma. The 30-year-old is phenomenal in power dressing. This photo shoot with Elle magazine is a perfect example of suiting up sharply and sexily. Anushka is wearing a printed burgundy and black Mary Katrantzou pantsuit. The stylist Rahul Vijay had layered it over a blue, black and purple Versace shirt, and given her a pair of Christian Louboutin pointy-toe pumps with long ribbon ankle ties. From hair to expression, there is nothing you can point at and call it wrong. It’s that good.
So, these are our gorgeousness looking pretty and power in pink power suits. From ankle-length to straight pants to culottes, or decorated jackets to styling an overcoat over a blazer, the fashionistas show us how to make a pantsuit look cool.
