“What’s better than spending a day shopping to your heart’s content? Not many things”, quips Sapna as she tries on clothes from her favorite brands at Inorbit Malad.
The sunny day had soon turned into a fashion fiesta, with the gorgeous actress giving out tips for the perfect summer tips for this holiday season.
Here’s what she had to say:
With summer here already, what footwear do you think should one opt for?
I personally love boots & uggs but in a humid & sweaty weather like India’s it becomes a little uncomfortable to wear them. You can instead put on gladiator flats that can instantly jazz up your outfit; like this one here, by Steve Madden. Summers are all about letting your feet breathe!
What’s your take on prints? What’s the best way to style printed clothes?
Floral prints are all the rage & I’m definitely a fan. The key is to balance it out. Never go overboard with prints. If you are wearing a printed top make sure the bottoms are plain, solid colored & vice-versa. Or you could pick a printed accessory like a bag or a pair of floral shoes. The point is to keep it minimal.
Where did you shop for the perfect outfit this summer?
Too many stores to count! But I think there are a few stores that I’ve frequented this summer. H&M for one, is a brand that I adore. Apart from that I also loved the spring-summer collection by Kazo.
Considering the sweltering summers in India, could you suggest a party look that’s easy to put together?
I know, we’ve all been victims of the sweltering summers here! Those nights when you go club hopping or to office party you could pair a plain top with jeans & throw on a faux leather jacket. Add a little bling by accessorizing, like I’ve done here, with these golden pocket chains.
Coming to lounge-wear do you have a favorite brand?
Lounge wear is so under-rated! Nothing beats the comfort of cozy clothing while you laze around at home. Hunkemoller has some amazing collection of sleep wear and lounge wear & I love that they have such a wide variety in this category. Plus, the collections are always fun & cute unlike the usual drab and boring lounge-wear.
What are some lingerie essentials for every woman?
The quality of your innerwear is vital, but that doesn’t mean you completely ignore the look, feel & design. The perfect lingerie is a mix of comfort, functionality & design. I absolutely love shopping for lingerie at Hunkemoller. Right from your workout gear to racy nightwear I’m spoilt for choice!
It’s summer & time to flaunt those washboard abs & gorgeous tans, do you have tips to jazz up those beachy-days?
Oh, beach days are fun! Two things to keep in mind. One, never ever forget to apply ample of sunscreen before you head to the beach. Two, find beachwear that’s comfortable yet fun!
Talking about skin, what does your daily skincare routine look like?
My skin is very sensitive and prone to acne so I have to be very particular about the products I use. I’ve learnt that water based skins work best & I’d recommend it to everyone who has skin like mine. Apart from this I make sure that I thoroughly cleanse my face of all makeup before I go to bed, no matter how late I return & no matter how tired I am! And on an average day all I have on is a bit of BB cream, Kohl & lip tints.
What cosmetic brands do you shop from?
I have been an ardent lover of Kiehl’s products for quite some time now. I also like The Body Shop & Forest Essentials because of the natural ingredients they use. MAC, Bobbi Brown have some amazing stuff in terms of makeup & they work well with my skin, so they’re my go to brands.
Do you like to experiment with nail art?
I like to keep it simple and classic. I love pastels when it comes to my nails. And when I’m in the mood for a little pampering I like to treat myself to a nail spa.
Last but not the least what’s one thing you always do while you’re out shopping?
There’s no better way to end a shopping spree than getting a yummy bite. And whenever I visit Inorbit I always get my grub at Starbucks. I absolutely love their croissants & frappes!
Sapna had a lovely time at Inorbit & you can too! Get your summer going with the latest spring-summer collections, enjoy lovely meals & turn this summer into a sassy one!
