Bollywood Inspired Women’s Fashion in India

Whether it's about ethnic wear or western attire, films have inspired the fashion of common men. Here are some timeless outfit ideas that we are highly replicating what famous divas showcased in movies.


  1. Anarkali Suits

Anarkali Suits are originally inspired by Mughal era fashion. But it is Madhubala’s heart-rending performance that made it a fashion in modern India. Till date, the Anarkali style dress is one of the favorite festive wear of Indian women. It is worn while attending weddings as well as celebrations including Diwali, Eid, and other social gatherings.


  1. Designer Sarees

Who can forget the iconic orange saree draped by Mumtaaz as she sets the dance floor on fire with Shammi Kappor. Her unique saree drape took the saree world by storm. And that is how pre-pleated sarees with slim pallus became the love of every Indian woman. Unlike traditional style, this saree hugs the body like a second skin and that too in a very stylish way. Tight sarees and sleeveless blouses were already draped by bollywood heroines but the frills and pre-pleated style made it incredible.And such designer pre pleated sarees and sarees with frills are still considered trendy. And the trend is further elevated by Madhuri Dixit and Deepika in films like Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and Yeh Jawani Hai Diwani. 


  1. Churidar Kurta

The credit of hip-hugging tight churidar kurta and salwar fashion goes to Sadhna. She literally ruled the fashion world with her famous hair cut and churidar suits. The outfit remained popular for very long and also inspired today’s leggings and kurtis. This ethnic wear is going to stay here despite hundreds of new trends.


  1. Short Kurtis

Traditionally, salwars and churidars were paired with long or mid length kurtas that covered knees. And then we saw Rani Mukherji in her absolutely vibrant and short collared kurtis. Since then short kurtis became a new love. And they are paired with every kind of bottom wear including jeans, jeggings, leggings, patiala or plain salwars. So far, the fashion of short and stylish kurtis has no looking back. And we are sure, it is going to be here for a long time in different ways.


  1. Backless Blouses

Blouse is a traditional wear paired with saree, ghagra, and lehengas. Madhuri Dixit’s vibrant purple backless blouse and stylish saree became an epitome of voguish sarees. Since then backless blouse designs are almost essential for heavy and rich sarees. And then there are hundreds of blouse designs. Most of them are backless and have versatile necklines and sleeve styles. You will come across halter neck, collar neck, boat neck but the backless style rules. Backless blouses are also trending during Garba nights as hundreds of chaniya cholis swirl. 


  1. Halter Neck Tops

This boldest neck style is paired with a variety of outfits ranging from tops, blouses, and long gowns and even Anarkali suits. As women became independent, their urge for freedom was also exhibited in fashion. Priyanka Chopra contributed to the popularity of halter neck tops among college girls. The fashion of halter neck tops was at its peak in the late 90s and early 2000s.But after dwindling a bit, it is back with a bang again in 2022. Designers are trying this neck style with other outfits as well. And every actress today is wearing this neck style. 


  1. Lehenga Choli

Lehenga is one of the most popular outfits for grand wedding ceremonies. Despite being an ancient ethnic wear, bollywood movies have contributed to the full-fledged fashion of lehenga today. Because we are still under the spell of Madhuri Dixit’s million dollar lehenga from Khalnayak and Devdas. Aishwary’s Kajra Re lehenga look and Rani Mukherji’s bridal lehenga added more edge to this timeless apparel. 


Lehengas are mostly heavily embroidered or embellished and worn with choli and dupatta. Going by the occasion, one can choose lightweight lehengas or heavily studded ones. Fashion designers today are in awe of this attire and creating innovative pieces. 


  1. Full Length Gowns

Full length gowns are the ultimate party wear when you want to wear something westernized for occasions. Every actress from the 90s and 2000s have shimmered in full length silk or satin gowns. And the trend is back again and this time with a unique style statement. The long party gowns are more popular. Depending upon the occasion, they are made from different fabrics and styled differently. Rich party wear full length gowns are favorite for engagement parties, anniversary parties, and formal dinner parties.
