Bollywood is not just another Indian film industry – It is a beacon of inspiration for many and almost like a religion in the country, next only to Cricket maybe. There are no restrictions to the variety of factors that are Bollywood inspired – from hairstyles to popular catch-phrases, Bollywood is everywhere in the Indian society. However, Bollywood celebrity styles undeniably attract maximum followers. From Salman Khans hairstyle in ‘TereNaam’ to Kareena Kapoor’s long T-shirts and patiala salwar look from ‘Jab We Met’, we have witnessed some widely popular fashion trends lifted straight out of the silver screen. Off the screen too, many Bollywood stars are making waves in the Indian fashion scenario. Be it SonamKapoor’s easy elegance in carefully putting together high fashion ensembles oMadhuri Dixit’s classy ethnic style – there are a lot of styling lessons to be learnt from the glittery world of celebs. Let’s take a look at one of the latest fashion trend that is being flaunted extensively within the glamour world – Polka Dots!

Big, small, tiny, close together, dispersed – you will see them in many varieties. Sarees, dresses, skirts, gowns, trousers and even accessories – Bollywood is flaunting Polka dots with a fierce passion. The love for Polka dots started early in the filmdom, with those lovely colourful sarees and shirts from the 70s. Now, contemporary fashion has a fresh take on the retro print, and it is perfectly chic for today’s fashion sensibilities. Looks like these humble dots can never go out of trend.

So, why select the polka dots? They are fun and flirty, but also classic at the same time. Polka dots are also very versatile prints. They look best paired with solid colours. Do not go for polka dot print on both bottom and top; if you absolutely must, try different sizes of dots – large once for the bottoms and tiny close-together ones for the top. Also, remember to keep the accessorizing to a minimum.

Take a cue from these Bollywood celebs, to get the Polka style right.
