    Samantha Akkineni (or Samantha Ruth Prabhu) is not just a wonderful actor. She's a fashion icon too. While we're all waiting for her to woo the PAN-Indian audience with The Family Man Season 2, there's no reason why we shouldn't take a look at her wardrobe for some style inspiration. We love that Samantha prioritises comfort over anything else, and if you look at her wardrobe, you'll spot lots of handlooms, feminine silhouettes, and youthful prints.

    Whether it's an airport look or an at-home look where she's found chilling with Hash Akkineni, her adorable doggo — her style is always on fleek. So, we've decided to put together an ultimate guide to dressing up like Samantha Akkineni. And the best part? Everything we've picked is made in India.

    If we were to ask you what's your first memory of spotting Samantha on screen, wouldn't it be from Ye Maaya Chesaave? In her debut film, she's found wearing comfortable cotton sarees. One saree that looked great on her was a blue saree that we spot in a scene where Naga Chaitanya (her real life husband) confesses his feelings for her. Simple and comfortable — we found something similar at Suta. This blue cotton saree comes with a green striped border and we love that it can be paired with any blouse. Don't forget to Instagram this look when you get your hands on it.

    To talk about Samantha's fashion and not include her very own label — Saaki would be a sin, isn't it? While most clothes get sold out within minutes of their launch, the accessories are absolutely worth loading up on. This collection is close to her heart because it's inspired from Hash, her pet. It's a layered gold-coated chain that's made from brass, and finished with rhodium. It features an imprint of Hash's paw and also Samantha's tattoo.
