    The Chiffon Saree In The Snow

    The chiffon saree in the snow has been a cult classic in most Bollywood movies during the 90s. From Aishwarya to Rani every iconic 90s actress has been seen in a thin bright coloured chiffon saree while a romantic song plays in the background. If the movie had a romantic angle, then it was most likely going to have a romantic sequence where the hero and the heroine danced in a subtle tune while professing their love for each other. One standout thing about this outfit is its simplicity. Actresses were always seen in a light-coloured plain chiffon saree with a matching sleeveless blouse. 

    The Micro Mini Co-ord Set

    The micro mini co-ord set became popular in the late 90s. This was when Bollywood was becoming more progressive when it came to women in the industry. The rage of these sets started off from the timeless movie “Kuch Kuch Hota Hain”. Most of Rani Mukherji’s outfits in this movie were bright and shimmery micro mini co-ord sets. These sets were mostly monochromatic and consisted of a brightly coloured micro mini skirt and a matching crop top that showed off the actress's midriff.

    Another distinct trend that was seen throughout the 90s was the use of accessories to enhance outfits. From Raveena Tandon to Karisma Kapoor, all the actors were seen in movies with not less than at least two accessories in addition to their outfits. Big broad and elaborate belts paired with light-coloured denim, bucket hats with floral detailings, shades of all kinds, head scarfs and hand gloves were a staple in 90s Bollywood Cinema.
