How to recreate the 90’s Bollywood fashion in your own way


We all have taken our fashion inspiration from Bollywood at some point. We get our outfits, our hairstyles, and our accessory choices after looking at what our favourite celebs’ styles. While these trends keep changing with the changing times, there are some really cool fashion outfits from the iconic era of Bollywood – the 90’s, which have sparked off lasting fashion trends. Here are some of the favourite, iconic looks of the era which you as a 90’s kids can recreate and flaunt in your own way.

Dungaree with a matching backpack

Remember Anjali from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, the sweet, tomboy role played by Kajol? She pulled off the dungarees with a contrasting crop top well and even won our hearts with her cute gestures. You can re-create the look with a soft pastel shade dungaree with a bright crop top and matching it with a backpack.

Pro tip: Add a bandana instead of a matching hairband to add to the boho-ness

Patiala Suit with a hobo

Even girls who didn’t love to wear the salwar suit changed their wardrobes, with Rani Mukherji’s collared kurta and Patiala pyjama, popularly known as the Bunty Aur Babli suit. The look was also recreated by Alia Bhatt in Badri Ki Dulhania with a cropped mirrored jacket. Revamp your ensemble with this 90’s inspired suit style and add a hobo to make your own style statement.

Pro tip: Put on a large sized pair of oxidized jhumka to get the desi-chic look right.


Crop Denim shirts with a sling bag

If you thought the crop top was a new addition to the fashionista’s recommendations, then you’re wrong! It has its roots tied strongly to the 90’s Bollywood fashion. While Urmila won the hearts of everyone with her groovy dances in Rangeela, her crop denim shirt look with a waist tie up, is still a favourite among today’s girls. Recreate the look with a loose palazzo and match it with a multi-utility sling bag.

Pro tip: Put your white sneakers on for festival-ready look.

Coordinates with a ripped denim clutch

The coordinates that Karisma wore in the movie Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge is such a timeless piece that high street fashion brands use it as their display pieces even today.. Donning knee-high boots, match similar coordinates with a ripped denim blue clutch to add to the modern choices of your wardrobe.

Pro tip: Choose oversized cat-eye shades to add the extra dose of glam. 

Long line jacket with a tote

When Preity Zinta starred in the movie Soldier, we not only fell in love with her dimples, but we also had a crush on her long line jackets that she wore with her mini dresses. Give a shot at this 90’s look by layering your mini dress with a long line floral or solid jacket and a shimmery tote

Pro tip: Match this look with stilettos to be party ready at any time of the day.
