It's official, we're obsessed with Mindy Kaling. When she's not being the adorable, quick-witted Dr. Lahiri on The Mindy Project, she's quickly becoming one of Hollywood's hottest fashion icons, embracing every new trend and dominating them all. From crop tops to floral prints, there is something refreshingly real about this sitcom star, and here are some inside secrets to her style you can inspire to get.
1. Cream of the crop top
Still on the fence about it? The actress told Jimmy Kimmel, “I'm not courageous just because I wore a crop top!” Whether Kaling see's her outfit as a risk-taking statement, she's inspired other women to embrace the crop top look with pride! Kaling's matching outfit is from Topshop, and is becoming one of the hottest trends of 2014 with other celebrities like Nicole Richie sporting the style. Whatever your feelings, don't be afraid to be bold and think like a Mindy.
2. The headpiece
This trend is a super easy way to add that little something extra to your outfit. Kaling paired her headpiece with a Helmut Lang twist neck top calling it her, “tiny little Coachella homage.” You can channel your inner Coachella at stores like Urban Outfitters, and Toronto based accessories brand, Headmistress. Easy to wear, and effortless, you'll be guaranteed to turn some heads this summer.
3. “Mindy” inspired summer bangs
Shaggy, side-sweep, or full bangs? No matter the shape, bangs are back and we're all on board! Whether you're looking for a change or “just wanted to look like one of Pharrell's friends,” says Kaling, this sizzling new look is a great way to shake up your current look and add character back into your image. Find that flattering fringe that best suits you and go wild, girl.
4. The classic floral
A classic floral will always be the embodiment of summer, and this summer, count on a full floral dress to make your mark. Can't go wrong with a classic floral print, even the Duchess of Cambridge is shown rocking the same dress as Kaling in this beautiful white L.K. Bennett cotton dress. These ladies are ready for summer, and you should be too.
