It’s been a week of powerful and striking fashion on Instagram.

Stars such as Amna Ilyas, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Katrina Kaif  and Sonam Kapoor made us go gaga with their fashion statements and inspired some new trends for the season.

One trend was very prominent this week and we are obsessing over it – the power suit. From Meghan Markle to Bollywood celebrities, pantsuits have become one of the most classic pieces of our time.  Take cue from the likes of Katrina and Sonam to spice up the classic look and add a bit of zest to your wardrobe.

Here is a low down of the style inspo each starlet gave us this week.

White shirt and jeans dream 

If there’s one look that never goes out of style, it’s the classic white shirt and faded jeans look. Celebs have been bringing it to the forefront this week and we can’t get over it. Give a kept feel to the ensemble by tucking in a long white sleeved shirt and pair it with fitted, torn jeans like Khloe Kardashian.

Our very own Amna Ilyas seems to be on point with this trend too, but keeps it classy by accessorising with gold hoops and a chunky gold necklace. We are also digging that high, slick ponytail.

And if you’re on the move or travelling, look to no other than Khaani star Sana Javed for inspiration with her casual hip bag and crisp white sneakers.

The power suit

The suit is a wardrobe classic (the seasonal appearance of Le Smoking at Saint Laurent is testament to that). It’s evergreen. This is the season of block colour suiting that runs the gamut in terms of shades and cut.  Take Bollywood star Katrina Kaif in this red-hot number.

Skirts, shorts, trousers and jackets come in bold, bright shades that can pack a punch as a full look, as they were at Chanel and Gucci, or be mixed up with softer hues and dressed down with casual shoes. We love Sonam Kapoor’s take on this trend.

The modernised 90’s look: Matching separates:

We can’t get over Kendell Jenner bringing back all the good feels in her red denim matching separates.  Looking like the total model she is, we love how she created this modern 90’s look on Instagram this week.  If crop tops are too risqué for you, compile this look with a fitted white turtleneck or shirt!

The gypsy turban

We can’t get over this exotic turban look some of the stars have been sporting this week.  We adore Sonam Kappor in this cute headpiece but keeping it cool with round Raybans and an off-shoulder dress.  Perfect for a formal summer gathering while bringing something different to the table.

Persian beauty Negin Mirsalehi bewitched everyone on Instagram with her stunning headpiece and layered suit ensemble.  A look not for the faint-hearted!

Statement earrings

Dainty is out and bold statement earrings are back in!  This time, stars such as Katy Perry bring a 70’s feel but in a totally fresh way.

We are also in love with Saboor Aly bringing her A-game with huge, circular gold earrings paired with a simple black tank to show off the craftsmanship.  A total win in our eyes!
