Andie Anderson, How to lose a guy in 10 days
This silky, yellow full length (May we also add iconic) dress with a beyond stunning back, would be ideal for a weekend spent amidst vineyards or even a beach house. If you’re heading out for a fancy-schmancy dinner, we’d recommend pairing it with some earrings and stilettos.
Mia, La La Land
There could be nothing more summery than this mid-length, flowy, bright yellow dress worn by Emma Stone in the film La La Land. Now, all you need is your boo (or Ryan Gosling) to come and sweep you off your feet.
Here’s one that screams summer in every language. This sleeveless denim dress, paired with a belt and white shirt with super-cute pink flamingos, is all you need for a fun getaway by the beach. You can skip the shirt (or pair it with some shorts) and wear the dress for a minimal look.
Sophie, Letters to Juliet
This salmon pink summer dress is perfect for a picnic amidst lush green hills, a brunch in a farmhouse or even a sundowner by the beach. You can glam it by accessorising it with some golden hooped earrings and a necklace.
Aisha Mehra, Dil Dhadakne Do
Here’s another outfit that would be perfect for a weekend away with your beau. This multi-coloured striped cropped top with a high-waisted, white flair pants are ideal for a beach getaway.
Kaira, Dear Zindagi
With the film set in the sunshine state, all of Alia Bhatt’s outfits in Dear Zindagi are perfect for a summer date. You can opt for a minimal yet stylish look with these denim shorts, a white tank top and a boho-chic style cotton cardigan that would be just right for camping on the beach.
You can also go for the vibrant, floral-printed full-length dresses that she has donned throughout the course of the film.
Gabriella Montez, High School Musical
If you’re looking for something totally chic and elegant, then this sea-green floral sundress with puffed sleeves is beyond beautiful. You can pair it with some earrings, rings and stilettos and you’re good to go.
Tia Malik, Kapoor and Sons
Looking for some boho-chic outfits? This white, loose cotton shirt with white shorts and a headband is perfect to wear on a beach date, a long drive or anywhere else you and your beau have in mind.
