What To Wear On A Beach: Takeaways From Sara Ali Khan
Sara Ali Khan’s seasonal Instagram aesthetic could well be described as bright colours, golden sand, and a ceaseless supply of #SaraKiShayari. The actor’s favourite holiday destination is the Maldives, and we love following her frequent visits to the tropical island with her family every year. These annual, sometimes biannual, trips are also great inspiration for all fashion aficionados.
A few days ago, Sara took off to spend a week on Vommuli Island, and carried with her some swoon-worthy, FOMO-inducing outfits. The carefully-curated ensembles were a diverse mix of colours and silhouettes. From floral and geometric-printed bikinis, one-piece swimsuits, sarongs and retro orange-hued sunglasses to a kaftan dress, statement flats, layered jewellery and maxi dresses, Sara’s outfits made for stunning pictures against the sunlit beaches. Styled by Ami Patel and Tanya Ghavri, Sara’s wardrobe definitely nudged our longing for a prolonged getaway to a remote island.
She rounded off most of her looks with beachy curls, only leaving it damp with her kaftan dress. The cut-outs, footwear choices and asymmetric hems showed off her toned body. The medley of vintage floral and technicolour prints was particularly fascinating, and gave familiar swimwear a new lease of life. The reimagination of the silhouettes of the kaftan and the maxi dress feminises the wardrobe even more.
The crisscross detailing over the bust, the edgy sunglasses, the one-shoulder cuts and the enticing shades and tints had us swiping at our screens for more. Wouldn’t you want to sit by a pool, in a designer number, sipping on a caipirinha right about now? Well, while you book those tickets, here’s the low-down on what to wear while enjoying these activities.

This kaftan dress by Verandah, with its asymmetric hem, is a vision in champagne. A pair of matching Tory Burch flats further elevated the look. If the theme of the night was bohemian chic, Sara definitely nailed it.
Style Tip: If you decide to take the look from day to night, swap out the flats for platform heels, and add gold jewellery to adorn your wrists.
Sara stuns in a sarong and a bikini from Shivan and Narresh’s latest collection ‘Kurt’. In this co-ord set of bold prints, the link-detailed top worn with high-waisted bottoms is a show stealer.
This Shivan and Narresh number with an eclectic print and saturated summer colours is exactly what dreams of warm tans are made of. We’re adding this to our shopping carts right now; we suggest you do too!
Sara opted for a glittery maxi dress with gold accents by the label Verb for a fancy dinner. Layered, gold necklaces reflected the moonlight, giving her a natural glow.
Style Tip: Add a pair of strappy flats, and top off the look with a side-swept hairstyle. Try statement earrings in place of the necklaces.
It’s floral, it harmonises with the blue of the water, and it has a cut-out detail along the waist. This sustainable Veni Vedi Amavi monokini by Esha Lal Swimwear fits perfectly in this frame.
