The Easy Tricks That Make Priyanka Chopra's Style Flawless

There are some actresses we could easily pass on the street and never know we were in the presence of a celebrity. Their style is effortless, low-key, and non-flashy. That’s not to say uninteresting, by any means—it’s simply unassuming. But we have a hard time believing that would ever happen with Priyanka Chopra.

The actress seems to always be wearing ensembles that are glamorous and polished, even if just in a pair of distressed jeans. And if that’s the kind of vibe you’d like to adopt in your own daily—likely non–movie star—life, take notes on the outfits ahead.

Be it with slightly vintage-inspired feminine dresses, leather LBDs, or just a strong collection of eyewear, Chopra’s style will help you step up your everyday look. We can’t promise you’ll be mistaken for a celeb, but hey, anything’s possible. Scroll down for inspiration.

On Priyanka Chopra: Prabal Gurung dress; Gianvito Rossi Emerald Satin and PVC Peep Toe Pumps

Style Notes: Now that we know Chopra will be heading to the royal wedding, we have a very important question: What will she wear? Well, her cheery spring look in New York City would actually be perfect. Thanks to the modest long sleeves and midi length, it’s certainly appropriate for the royal affair, but the fun colors add a dose of personality.

Play With Texture

Style Notes: Sequins and shimmer are great but can occasionally be too much of a good thing. Not in this case—Priyanka’s sophisticated look demonstrates a pro use of paillettes that add just the right amount of interest.
