Take advice from actress Nargis Fakhri, who was in New Delhi to launch a fashion store. "Fashion is a form of expression and it allows every human being to express themselves creatively. They are able to form their own identity when it comes to clothes. It lifts a person's self-esteem. It's a part of everyone's life. You can't ignore it," the 34-year-old actress told NDTV.
Nargis describes her own style as experimental. "I like variety, so sometimes I'll wear a lovely long summer dress or I'll wear something short and sexy. I would like to pair it off with a cool jacket so it doesn't look too sexy. For me variety is the keyword," she said.
For Nargis, the five essentials every woman should have to look 'cool' in the scorching heat are shorts, comfortable cotton T-shirts, tank tops, long flowing summer dresses and crochet tops.
Sonam Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Deepika Padukone figure among the celebrities Nargis admires for their summer style. Nargis also votes in favour of the Bollywood ladies over the men, fashion-wise. "Women dress better than men, they care about what they wear. They know their bodies and what looks good on them," said the actress.
Nargis was last seen on the silver screen opposite Varun Dhawan in Main Tera Hero, a movie in which her own wardrobe was rather 'cool,' to take a word out the actress' lexicon.
