Let’s admit it – Bollywood’s Sri Lankan girl Jacqueline Fernandez has a lot of things going right for her. That gorgeous smile that can make the most glum days seem fine, never-ending legs and a heart and spirit to match the goofiest child you’ve encountered. It’s only an icing then that she is a walking Pinterest board of effortless chic style.
She turns 30 today and on that note, we’ve trawled through her looks and we found a style file that’s sheer genius from start to finish.
Here’s the perfect compilation of her style game.
Steering clear of nudes, beiges and blacks Jacqueline excellently teamed her bright fish –printed Surendri by Yogesh Choudhary outfit with a pair of silver Miu Miu heels.
Classic And Quirky Can Be Friends
Red carpets and red gowns are an old cliche. Jacqueline won the style diva award at Stardust in this playful-yet-polished spin of the classic red dress. We say, she must definitely take a bow or two.
Pant Suits Needn’t Have To Be Boring
Ditching the favoured montones, style savant Jacqueline donned this Akansha Pajria pantsuit with Valentino Rockstud pumps and red lips. Now no more reserving pant suits for boardroom meetings and conferences.
Pastels Are A Summer Staple
Fernandez’s sartorial greatness remains intact even in sultry weather. She brought her impossibly chic, not to mention melt-proof, aesthetic to the forefront in a summery multi watercolor-esque Alberta Ferrerti skirt and an Elizabeth & James crop top. She topped it off with glamorous lavender earrings from Curio Cottage.
Denim Jackets Are Versatile As Hell
Jacqueline stepped out to grab some coffee, where she braved the glum rains with a striped Zara skirt, a printed tee, a light-wash denim jacket and faithful white Tod sandals.
Make Print Mixing An Art
Interested in mixing prints? Make one pattern the star (in this case, the intrinsic maroon pattern) and the other a part of the supporting cast. Take a cue from Jacqueline’s old-school look comprising a skirt suit by Nimish Shah and a Zara classic shirt which were accompanied by Fendi’s Giano clutch and caramel-colored heels. Sweet!
A Hot Clutch Is The Ultimate Arm Candy
Who needs a beau when your clutch looks like a million dollars? Jacqueline knows her clutches like Carrie Bradshaw knows her shoes. Look how she made high-street fashion romance high-end luxury in this look with her sporty Zara dress and the very glamorous Louis Vuitton’s petite malle clutch.
Baseball Caps Are Effortless Sexy
Whether worn to go incognito amid paparazzi, or as a casual accessory on a sunny weekend, the classic cap has become a celebrity staple and this beauty believes no different. At the airport, or even in at a club, she owns the baseball cap rage.
Go Bright Or Go Home
Jacqueline Fernandez wore two blue separates which involved a rather cutesy bardot top and a blue skirt. An unexpected twist to the look was a red Chloe sling bag that made it the ultimate color blocking trick you can master. Take a hint and go daring with the colors of the rainbow, regardless of order.
Take Risks (Even When They’re ‘Not You’)
This imperial blue velvet piece by Sabyasachi at the Vogue 5th anniversary bash wasn’t very true to Jacqueline’s style. But you know what? She tried it and we applaud her for that.
Clash Clash Clash
Yes, we know that it’s all about dainty jewellery right now, but you just can’t beat a statement piece to really jazz up a boring look. No one knows this better than Jacqueline Fernandez who wasn’t happy with her bone-white ensemble by Pankaj and Nidhi and decided to pimp it up with some technicolor from Amrapali’s Manish Arora line.
Bling Never Hurts
There are a few defining pieces that every party-goer must own and needless to say sequins and embellishments must be heavily involved – and looks like Jacqueline has hers right here. At the success party of one of her films, she glistened in this Matthew Williamson piece which definitely has us in a fix.
A Big Bag To Go With Your Busy Schedule
In an off-duty look caught at the airport was Jacqueline in a cute crop top and distressed denim skirt with the perfect travel tote by Furla.
Go Oversized, Literally
An oversized shirt dress and shorts would be a definite nod from us when they have some great toned legs like those of Jacqueline. We can’t think of anyone else who could wear it quite like her.
When In Trouble, Trust Thy Bestie
They both have killer fashion senses and have been identified as “ones to watch” so we guess it was only a matter of time before Sonam Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez teamed up and haven’t they? Sonam is helping her BFF get through a potential malfunction we suspect. Definitely cute.
Invest In A Color That Works For You
A recent pride of the Indian runway scene is the color ivory-white. Fernandez has made this her staple color preference, be it a bustier crop top with palazzos by Anamika Khanna or a sari by Anand Kabra. Lesson? An unseen color is warranted to help you make all the statement in a sea of colorific Indian hues.
Black And White Is The Chicest Combination And Shall Be
That black and white prints and stripes are as off-duty as they’re red carpet is no secret. Nor is the fact that they never go out of vogue. Jacqueline made us believe in the ambidexterity of the same by wearing all things monochrome at Forever 21’s Mumbai launch.
Believe In Pink
There aren’t many casual pieces that could be called impactful. Lending edge to an otherwise casual look is Moschino’s adorable dress that is every bit girly as it is fun. Jacqueline was seen strutting around in it post her shooting and expertly paired it with a large pink tote and white sandals. We love the pink philosophy here.
Draped Jackets Are Game Changers
While everyone’s hoarding on capes, a casual varsity jacket thrown casually over the shoulders does the trick. Almost-pale jeans, a plain old white tank, black boots, a plaid shirt are thrown in together and the jacket elevates the entire look and proves Jacqueline is quite the winner at casual chic style.
Go Daring With The Eyeliner PLUS Red Lips
Ignore those boring people who say you shouldn’t go bold with both your eyes and your lips – they’re being spoil sports. Just take a cue at how Jacqueline nails the epitome of beauty looks in a summery number. She reminds us so much of Dolce & Gabbana, it hurts.
