In today's world of leggings, palazzos, or flared pants, the invention of churidars was a timeless gift. If you do not like to wear tight leggings in the summers, churidars are an alternative for ladies who are in love with ethnic wear. 

  • Bell bottoms

Bell bottoms made a hit re-entry in the 20s and it was exactly the same time when people were bored with jeans or pants. Bell bottoms not only turned out to be a party piece for women but also a professional outfit too. Bell bottoms are now a versatile outfit that is totally in demand. 

  • Bell sleeves

Bell sleeves were mostly seen in dresses in 80s movies. If you remember, in the song "Ek Main Aur Ek Tu", actress Neetu Singh was donning a beautiful dress which had bell sleeves. Since then many experiments have been done and bell sleeves now exist in blouses, tops, and kurtas. 

  • Puff sleeves 

Earlier puff sleeves came in blouses but now they are present in dresses or tops as well. These puff sleeves led many designers to work on them and introduce them in other fashion staples. This particular sleeve still has the vogue to add flair in a simple look. 

  • Bandanas 

 

Bandana is a triangular piece of cloth converted into a headscarf for long treks, winter season, or for a sweaty day. India adopted this trend from foreign countries during the 80s to give a cool chic look. It is a fashion accessory that can be used when you want to head to a party, shopping, trip, etc. 

  • Polka dots
