There’s something undeniable about the charm of an ensemble that is made up entirely of classic colours—even Coco Chanel only worked with timeless shades of black, white, red, beige and gold in her initial designs. Considering Sonam Kapoor Ahuja is well versed with the rules of sartorial dressing, it’s not a coincidence that her recent airport look saw a combination of black, white and red (with the last hue featuring only on her lips and nails). Dressed in a black floor-length jacket that came peppered with white dots, matching pants and an oversized white shirt, the actor’s outfit was at once casual and statement-making.
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s guide to wearing the classic black and white combination
On her way to Dubai last night, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja gave a masterclass in updating the classic black and white combination for a paparazzi-worthy travel look. Her long jacket and matching pants both had a comfortable slouchy fit, which the actor countered by buttoning her shirt right to the top to bring in a sharp touch. A black sling bag, paired with matching frames and sneakers, complemented her outfit, while a subtle addition of red was established through her bright lip and nail paint. Why not add a similar number to your travel wardrobe? Scroll ahead for options.
