Fashion trends always have a way of coming back with changing generations. And we can clearly see some of the most popular 70s and 80s Bollywood style trends making their way back. From flared pants to neck scarves, vintage fashion is a rage among the B-towners today. Everyone is embracing the trends in their own way and we just can’t get enough of the glamour! So, here are some of our favourite Bollywood fashion trends from the 70s and 80s that are back in vogue!
1. Flared pants
Bell bottoms are comfortable, chic, and becoming increasingly popular. From Neetu Singh to Zeenat Aman, they were a fashion statement back in the day and are back in demand now. You can see several B-town divas spotting trendy flared pants outfits, from the red carpet to movie promotions.
2. Neck scarves
Neck scarves have been a huge trend among the stars in the west for years. And there was no shortage of glamorous and bold looks in Bollywood either. Neck scarves look beautifully feminine and give out that boss lady vibe. B-town divas are all about embracing vintage fashion and we are all for it.
3. One-shoulder outfits
One of our absolute favourite vintage fashion trends is the one-shoulder look! It is sexy, it is bold and so glamorous. Bollywood seems to be catching up with the trend and donning some extremely hot one-shoulder outfits.
4. Androgynous outfits
Gender-neutral outfits were a rage back in the 70s and 80s. From Hema Malini to Rekha, Bollywood’s top actors rocked androgynous outfits. And we love how they’ve made a comeback because, to be honest, they are pretty cool!
5. Metal frame sunglasses
The very trendy and chic metal frame sunglasses that every influencer and B-towner is posing in are a big Bollywood fashion trend from the 80s. The OG Bollywood actors introduced this style statement, and we are completely in love with this fashion trend.
6. Sequinned dresses
Sequinned dresses are elegant, classy, and add a touch of sensuality to the whole look. And since it has been one of the biggest fashion trends of the 80s, it had to make its way back. From red carpets to events, we just can’t get enough of the drop-dead sequinned dress looks!
7. Edgy chokers
People think chokers are a fashion trend that emerged recently, but they were actually popularised in the 70s and 80s. With the rise of the disco dressing trend, chokers of all varieties were a big part of vintage fashion. From studded to embellished chokers, Bollywood divas rocked them back then and are rocking them now.
Swimsuits of all types were popularised in the 70s and 80s but monokinis were one of the biggest hits. And Sharmila Tagore was the one who made them fashionable and sensual back in the day. So it is only fair that this chic and sexy Bollywood fashion trend made a comeback.
