Flaunt your retro swag with Saiesta's stylish ideas
New Delhi[India], Sep 27 (ANI): What goes around, comes around. Well, it is true for fashion as well!

Leading Bollywood ladies have time and again flaunted the retro style with panache. Maybe it will remind you when you were a teenager, or how your mother used to dress, and maybe you will think women in those days were just as beautiful as today or even more?

As the 1960-90s fashion, which we all know as the 'Retro' fashion is back in vogue, Ms. Sonal Abrol, COO, Saiesta, India's premier e-tail studio for women, brings to you some unique and stylish ideas to flaunt the #RetroSwag.

Actress Ileana D'cruz nailed the retro fashion in Rustom. Flaunting the pastel shades, with influence of Audrey Hepburn look from Breakfast at Tiffany's one can be inspired from Ileana D'cruz look, pick up the midi-dresses in pastel colors or pair an elaborately designed saree with a sleeveless or 3-4th sleeves length blouse to make an elegant fashion statement. You can complete your look with the retro sunglasses that have always been statement pieces.

Moving to the most elegant and stylish Bollywood diva, Aishwarya Rai flaunted some of the very popular designs from the good old days, like the polka dots dresses and sarees in vibrant colors. To rock this look, you can select a polka dots top in various patterns - small animal based print with a broad neckline, in any combination and pair it with skinny jeans or bell bottoms, with a bandana and long earrings.

Flaunt a tunic with ever green polka dots or crop tops paired with jeggings or boot denims. Ace the winged eyeliner look and team it up with stilettos or wedges and carry that bold colored sling bag or clutch, to stand out of the crowd.

As the festival season is around the corner, you can flaunt the chikankari styled kurti or saree in serene white or light shades of yellow, pink, blue or purple. Pair your kurta with hand embroidered palazzo or pants or even boho hippie salwar to give yourself a simple and on-the-go look. You can wear a saree with broad borders with polka dots and a sleeveless blouse, and complete your look with a pearl necklace and earrings. These days, chikankari dresses are in, so you can select a plain dress with intricate chikankari work and complete your look with a broad belt around the waist. To give yourself a disco look, team this up with a junk metal necklace and similar earrings.

If you are in the mood to go for the classic combination, you can take a cue for yesteryear superstar Zeenat Aman, who gracefully flaunted this look in 'Hare Rama Hare Krishna', which became a style statement in the late 70's and continues to be held in high regard even today. To replicate this look, pick any vibrant colored t-shirt and pair it up with flared high waist pants. You can even pair an ethnic short jacket with mirror or phulkari work with a plain dress in bright color and accessories to add to the "oomph factor".

Starlet Hema Malini is still famous for her fashion sense, but back in the days, her lovely chiffon sarees were quite the rage. Pair a plain chiffon saree with a net-sleeves blouse and tie your hair in a bun for a simple yet elegant look. To give an interesting twist to this look, you can even opt for an embellished blouse in a contrasting color with your saree and stand out from the crowd.

So don't hesitate in bringing back the charm of the good old days and flaunt your #RetroSwag with Saiesta, because you have the #RightToFlaunt! (ANI)
