What kinda journo do you want to be?
There are certain cliches about professions that you can't do away with. Take, for instance, a journalist's attire. You'd think they turn up everywhere in their trademark sack bag, not-so-crisp cotton kurta and geeky broad-rimmed glasses. Well, you know what? You're not too off the mark. I wore exactly a version of that wardrobe to work on my first day as a reporter. It's easy to see why Sonakshi Sinha's latest movie, Noor, has her playing up those cliches. Thankfully, with a contemporary twist. So the kurta-jhola look is more Pero than Fab India. Get what we mean?
We bring to you Noor's two polar opposite looks from the movie as she straddles between being a serious journo and a trendier, more carefree version of herself. Here's how you can get her look, too.
Working the old-school look
This is old-school journo attire done chic. Indigo is the shade to swear by for this season to keep summer heat at bay.
Get this look:
Go for a loose but structured long kurta in the most summery shade of blue. Pair it with easy, breezy sandals and white palazzos. Stacked bracelets with #girlboss vibes will keep you on your toes when it comes to chasing deadlines.
Tunic: Anouk, Rs 1,339, Myntra
Stole: Anekaant, Rs 449, Myntra
Bracelet: Pipa Bella, Rs 699
Going for badass vibes
Dungarees are officially in vogue to take to work. Thanfully, journos don't have strict dress codes. So, play with those 90s cool girl trends all you want.
Get this look:
If dungarees are too dramatic, sass up your regular cropped pants and tee combo with suspenders. Make sure you stock up on your choker collection to work this look. Don't go OTT with them, though. Go for simple but statement-making styles.
Pants with suspenders: Evah London, Rs 1,799, Koovs
Sneakers: Shoetopia, Rs 799, Myntra
Choker: Pipa Bella, Rs 210
