Best of 2016 – Fashion trends by Bollywood’s leading ladies

It has been a great year for Bollywood so far. Especially for our leading ladies.


SonamKapoor showed us the face of heroism in Neerja. KareenaKapoor Khan played the role of a primary breadwinner in Ki &Ka while her husband took care of the household. Ritika Singh dominated the boxing ring in SaalaKhadoos and the brave women of Pink stood up to their abusers.Priyanka Chopra has broken into Hollywood with her upcoming Baywatch remake and DeepikaPadukone joins Vin Diesel in XXX: Return of Xander Cage.

It wasn't so different off-screen either. They experimented with their looks, setting fashion trends and becoming role models. Let's take a look at how Bollywood's leading women led the way in style.

Are the 90s back?! Going by the return of dungarees, it would certainly seem so. Everyone's favourite Friend Rachel Green practically lived in them.

We're not complaining though. The decade had its cheesy moments, but the dungarees are a highlight that deserves a comeback.

But when the weather goes gloomy, make sure to go bright too. Pair your winter colours with bright colour pops in the form of scarves, ear muffs or printed sweaters.


It goes back further though. Trends that dominated the 70s, patchwork and badges, have been making a comeback.

Alia Bhatt and KanganaRanaut have been showing off their quirky sides, wearing outfits customized with badges and patchwork. It's the revival of hippie chic and we wholeheartedly approve.

Here's a trend that simply outshines everything else. The metallic midi skirt is eye-catching yet elegant and versatile enough to go with tank tops, jumpers and bomber jackets.

Alia Bhatt has again been a trendsetter along with Priyanka Chopra and Jacqueline Fernandez.

No, not the superhero variety. Though we wish it was. Let's hope 2017 delivers on that.

Capes have been burning up the ramps and red carpets this year. From being styled as jackets, gowns and even dupattas, capes are surprisingly flexible.

SonamKapoor and KareenaKapoor Khan have been slaying it at fashion weeks and awards nights dressed in their capes. If that doesn't qualify as making a statement, we don't know what will.

He isn't a woman but he deserves to be on this list. Ranveer Singh is single-handedly bringing in the trend of androgynous dressing into the country.

With the androgynous look, the line between menswear and womenswear is getting blurred. Ranveer has made several public appearances wearing skirts and carrying purses. And that's why we love him.
