Onscreen, Anushka Sharma has made a name for herself with her trailblazing choices and off the screen, she is known for her parlance of elevated essentials. The Sui Dhaaga star’s normcore aesthetic finds expression in a fuss-free roster of Indian wear looks that accentuate, but never overwhelm. Nonchalant neutrals serve as her sworn go-tos, from breezy kurta sets to lightweight anarkalis. However, on those nights when she’s looking to play dress-up, you’ll find her opting for trendsetting lehengas and statement-making looks. With her postcard-perfect nuptials in Tuscany, the star singlehandedly made pastel lehengas a permanent mainstay on bridal moodboards. Here, we take a closer look at the silhouettes that have earned her favour.Inside Anushka Sharma’s daywear wardrobe
If you are tired of seeing copy-paste athleisure looks everywhere you turn, there is plenty of inspiration to be found in Sharma’s roster of classic kurtas. Whether she’s hopping on a long-haul flight or running around town for errands, the fuss-free kurta aligns perfectly with the star’s definition of laidback luxe. Spotted at a voting booth during election season, she opted for a soothing blue kurta set, detailed with chikankari embroidery. The scalloped hemline of the breezy white palazzo pants was flanked with ivory juttis for maximum impact at minimal effort. A quick browse through her airport sightings will convince you to add the classic silhouette to your rotation for whenever we can travel again. Muted neutrals generally win her vote when on the go, and further proof can be found in the ivory number from Good Earth she chose for a quick dash to the airport.

If you were to bump into Sharma during wedding season, she’d be the guest commanding all eyes with her envy-inducing roster of lehengas. Unconventional colours play a headlining role in her occasion wear wardrobe, with moody hues often earning her favour for a standout OOTD. Minimalists will want to bookmark her black kurta set from Sabyasachi for day occasions. Detailed with badla work, the fuss-free silhouette serves as the perfect candidate for an intimate family gathering.
On those nights when she’s looking to make a statement, you’ll find her choosing from the couturier’s scene-stealing creations. For Diwali celebrations last year, the star indulged in a rare display of maximalism with a multi-hued lehenga from the designer’s ‘Charbagh’ collection. The moody florals of the blouse were juxtaposed with colour-blocked panels on the lehenga for maximum impact. The finishing flourishes came in the form of an ornate choker with coloured gemstones, coordinated earrings and stacked bangles.
And while she loves impact-making lehengas, Sharma isn’t immune to the allure of a cocktail sari. For Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ star-studded reception party she picked a seafoam green pick from Sabyasachi, embellished with crystals, sequins and diamanté. The hue pulled in another appearance in her wardrobe in the form an ephemeral drape painted with romantic florals. The seasoned sartorialist expertly manoeuvred the impact of the look by teaming it with a pair of shoulder-grazing chaandbalis.
