In quintessential Gen Z style, jump on the contrast stitch bandwagon with a corset fit. Like actor Palak Tiwari, opt for a double denim look with a halter neck top and flared washed out pants.

Style it right

  • With the contrast stitch style, less is more. So, avoid over accessorising or wearing too many patterns/prints.
  • Pair with neutral colours like black, white or tan to make it pop.
  • Experiment with different fabrics and textures to add some depth to the look.
  • For a casual look, add a pair of sneakers or sandals. While for a dressier look, opt for loafers or heels.
