Another word to describe Sanya Malhotra would be patakha! She acts effortlessly, dances like a professional, dresses like a fashionista. The 28-year-old curly haired actress knows how to work the stylish girl-next-door vibe to perfection. High-waisted denims, anti-fit tees, structured blazers–it’s like Sanya’s cracked the fashion code for petite girls and she’s given all of us a secret Instagram masterclass.
Here are a few great hacks we picked up from Sanya’s outfits. They’re great for short-heighted girls who are looking to add height to their frame as well as experiment with some unconventional silhouettes!
1. The everyday combo
The white polo shirt has been tucked into these boxy, high waist mom jeans and worn with closed sandals. The bagginess of the shirt lets your upper half seem taller while the fit of the high-waist denim makes your waist seem higher. All of which are great additions!
2. Street Style ninja
The oversized graphic tee and cargo pants are peak street style outfits. The combat boots are extremely rock chick and super cool. Both pieces here are extremely comfy and oversized, so it is easier to look laidback and chic. It is important to keep outfits like this one, uncinched / unbelted to not give away your frame underneath.
3. Power house
Wearing a power suit for a petite girl can be quite daunting but Sanya tells you how to crack the code. In this look, she does the same with a suit that is high-waist and has a fitted crop top. The proportion of midriff you show with outfits like this is very important as it balances your overall frame.
4. Red carpet hot
For the Filmfare Awards this year, the Photograph actress was spotted in this beautiful sheer, muted gown, heavy on crystal work. The one-shoulder number has a bustier bodice which ends right at the waist. The net layer which forms the sleeve, as well as the colour palette make the outfit look extremely delicate.
5. Denim disco
The denim overalls with white retro boots is such a breezy, casual look! There’s the scrunched up bun and no accessories which are great plus points. The jumpsuit comes with an in-built belt and is again, quite high-waisted.
6. Cool girl retro
The babydoll dress, worn with a white tee below, is such a 90’s vibe check! It’s a cute uniform to sport on a day out with friends or on a vacay. The black and white monotone is an easy combination to work with, because all other colours work with it. Here, we love Sanya’s headband and chunky white sneakers!
7. Working and walking
Everyday chores need stylish everyday clothes. This is one primary example. Tank top with cargo pants but high-rise enough to give you a taller frame. It’s paired with black sneakers, sunglasses and a small backpack for the sartorial punch!
