The fuss around this new trend of jackets is totally justified. It is, undoubtedly, a must-have, an enviable ensemble in the squad of traditional outfits! But when wearing an Indian jacket, you need to be very attentive towards the way you style it. Your fashion game has to be on point all the while. Also, you cannot be afraid to experiment.

The Bollywood divas are super conscious about whether their fashion is on fleek or not. They not only keep up with all the trends that are making a buzz, but also, give birth to new trends by styling a particular outfit in their own unique way!

Here are 6 B-town hotties who have turned heads with this new fashion. These long jackets when clubbed with anarkalis and lehengas are not only up-to-the-minute, but also regal!

1. Katrina Kaif

In a red anarkali with zari-work throughout the body of the ensemble, designed by Manish Malhotra, Kat looked ravishing. But what made her look different from her other appearances is her jacket! It appeared as though Kaif was wearing a jacket-style anarkali!

So if you want something smart and formal, yet red carpet dressy uppy, you can seek inspiration from this combination!

2. Deepika Padukone

Deepika rocked the floral long jacket with her cropped tee and jeans that she wore for a promotional event of her movie Tamashaa. The print is vivacious and young, lending her the spunk she is famous for!

Again, we saw Padukone in a cobalt blue Anamika Khanna, in which she looked gorgeous, but what took our breath away was her ivory embroidered jacket! The detailed high collar long jacket makes Deepika look like a queen, doesn’t it? Also, we are hearting the statement necklace by Estaa that she is carrying with such panache.

Taking inspiration from both Padukone and Kaif, you can team up your bold-colored raw silk lehenga with an embroidered jacket that will let you steal the show!

3. Sridevi

Layers was the baby of the runways around the globe, all through 2015. Well, we are approaching the end of 2016, and yet, the style does not seem to be going anywhere, anytime soon! If you too cannot seem to get over the art of layering, try creating a silhouette by dropping your long jacket over a simple cocktail dress!

5. Sonam Kapoor

We don’t call her the queen bee of fashion in Bollywood, just like that, do we?! There isn’t a single style that this diva hasn’t tried her hands on. But what is more surprising is that she pulls each one of the outfits combination challenges that are thrown at her! For instance, no one can carry a trench-style take on the long jacket with the ease and sophistication that Sonam portrays! If you want to refashion the look, you can give it a little twist, by teaming the jacket with a Patiala or a bloc-print lehenga or even dhoti pants!

Sonam was also spotted donning a Payal Khanwala rigout with a silvery jacket clubbed with oversized Apala earrings! Like Sonam, you too can make even a vintage flair look state-of-the-art by adding a chunky piece of jewelry!

6. Sonakshi Sinha

7. Karisma Kapoor

“If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster.” This Isaac Asimov line, embraces my love for writing in the finest and most desperate way that it is and should be! I was tormented by the earnestness of the written word not very early in my journey. But once smitten, it has helped me devour life twice over; savoring the moment and indulging in its memories. As a flâneuse, I wander to understand the intricacies of human relationships. Realizing that, they are just different manifestations of the same feeling of love, has been my greatest learning. I seek to share its opulence through the words I type.
