At the beginning of lockdown, we were satisfied with our streaming services and OTT platforms. There was so much content to catch up on, this lockdown was welcomed as a much-needed break. However, as our Watch List started shrinking, we started looking for alternate sources of entertainment.
The search led to our good ol’ TV and an old but gold daily soap, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. Our mothers’ and aunts’ favorite on-screen couple Kartik and Naira (#KartikNaira) came alive on our screens. But, truth be told, we didn’t really enjoy the show as much they do. What we did ended up swooning over were the beautiful dresses that Naira wears after marriage throughout the show.
We began stalking her Instagram page and rounded up some of our favorite Naira looks from Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. From her stunning sari collection to her resplendent gowns, here is a list of Naira’s best on-screen looks. We feel these styles will help you curate your looks for the festive season ahead. So, scroll down and bookmark your favorite outfits.
1. Naira in a floral lehenga
The color combination is so unexpected and refreshing here that we had to feature this outfit in our list. Who knew beige and mint could work so well together. This is a great look for a daytime wedding. We like how Naira has kept it modern by pairing the lehenga with a noodle strap blouse.
2. Naira in blue dress
This outfit gives us major Madhuri Dixit-Nene feels from her Hum Aapke Hain Koun days. What do you think? We like the fact that Naira has chosen a high-top bun to finish her look. The ensemble is so ornate that open hair would’ve looked a bit overwhelming. The way she has matched her hair accessory to her outfit is especially commendable.
3. Naira in red lehenga
This outfit is a lesson on how to wear red and not look like you are going for your own wedding. We love how Naira chooses to finish her outfit with a contrasting dupatta in a neutral shade. The beige colour of the odhni really helps bring down the vibrancy of her look. Yet the red colour of the lehenga and the silver sari work makes her shine.
4. Naira in black gown
How to wear black during festivities? Take some cues from Naira’s look book. The actor has kept things interesting by choosing a black outfit that has decorative embroidery all over it. Since the black gown is so heavily embellished, she has only picked a simple ring to finish her look. Pulling her hair back for sleek hairdo is also a great way to make her outfit more eye-catching.
5. Naira in teal dress
This is a tricky color to pull off but not if you style it like Naira does here. In order to elevate you teal-colored outfit, you should pair it with a bright colored dupatta. When choosing a dupatta, please make sure that it has similar work as seen on your outfit. Finally, finish your look with matching earrings and if possible, keep your accessories in the same color palette.
6. Naira in white dress
Naira looks like an angel in this all-white ensemble. However, her look is not out of this world. It is simple yet impactful. Since a white on white outfit can sometimes look a bit washed out, she has chosen delicate glitter work to uplift her outfit. The curly hair and diamond drop earrings are also unique ways in which you can style a white lehenga.
