Nepotism aside, the Kapoor Khaandan of Bollywood have sure swum in the deep end of the gene pool. They shared exquisite features but were essentially like chalk and cheese. Their distinct personalities gave us the gift of diverse appearances and sensibilities on screen. While reams can be written about their star prowess, a glimpse into their sartorial choices is enough to give you all the December feels.


While Rishi Kapoor exemplified the ‘sweater’ swag as the unabashed lover boy, Shammi Kapoor simply relied on a muffler in Tumsa Nahi Dekha to exude his flamboyance. Shashi Kapoor may not have experimented much with dressing on screen but he boasted a malleable aesthetic, where he adopted an attire befitting the character - be it the boatman in Kashmir in Jab Jab Phool Khile or the army man in the suave red turtleneck pullover in Sharmeelee.

His sublime sensuality was hard to miss. Even his white muslin and shawl clad simplicity off screen made a statement. The younger generation comprising the likes of Karisma, Kareena and Ranbir continue their stylistic legacy.

Rishi Kapoor even went on to express his fixation with sweaters on social media.
