As Malaika Arora nails the busy printed suit and neon shoes look, we tell you how you can pull off your own version of this unique combination.

Tapering tall

  • Stick to two contrasting shades when you pick a busy monochrome suit; these shouldn’t look confusing or messy.
  • Opt for a pair of heels or sleek pumps in a neon variant that isn’t too similar to any print, shade or design on the suit. If it’s a black-and-white combination, don’t wear a silver or grey option.
  • The cut of the two-piece is crucial. Padded shoulders or a style that gives the same illusion works best, especially when paired with tapering pants. This helps prevent you from looking too formal, which takes away from the look.
  • Wear an accessory from the same family of colours inside — a silk turtleneck will look great.
  • Be generous with your kajal.

Neon top-up


  • Sombre plaids are best for a formal event. Use a thin belt to cinch it.
  • Add a dash of colour by sporting a solid neon hat or cap depending on the occasion. Even a beanie works.
  • Pair this with nude shoes or even ones with the same pattern as the suit.

When boots are bae


  • If you wish to flaunt many shades, go for a design with minute symmetrical elements.
  • Keep with seasonal changes, and wear a cool pair of bright boots with buckles.
  • You can even choose a power cape suit, which would complement the bad-ass vibe the boots offer.
