INDIAN FASHION – THE RETURN OF THE 70’S

Lifestyle 08/01/2024

Old is truly gold, it seems. And nobody seems to better at following this adage than our Indian fashion industry. We are all set with a 70’s comeback. Maybe it’s the influence of Om Shanti Om, or maybe it’s just that true style never dies- think what you may, but it’s hard to deny that the 70’s are back in your face.

Take a walk down the street, and what do you see? You’ll see atleast one man wearing trousers slightly flared near the ankle (called bellbottoms in their day), and atleast a few girls wearing decorative scarves, jazzy earrings, with a wave in their hair.

Meghna Dutta, studying Fashion Design at Symbiosis Institute in Pune welcomes the change. She says, “True style never goes out of style, it’s a rather bad joke, but it’s true! The 70’s are back in a big way.”

Even shops are cashing in on the 70’s frenzy, selling snazzy earrings, thick framed glasses, big bangles, and clothes outlets are not far behind. With polka dots, leggings, bellbottoms, drainpipe trousers, and A-line dresses back in fashion- one simply cannot go wrong. Even the beaded look has made a comeback, beads being a must-be part of any girl’s wardrobe nowadays.

Ashish has just bought himself a pair of bellbottoms, and is quite pleased. He says, “I know it’s outlandish, but hey- it’s the 70’s look, and I want to be in with it!”

So many girls envied Deepika Padukone’s look in Om Shanti Om, and so many men wished they could look like Om, played by Shahrukh Khan. Well, now that the 70’s are back, go retro and be part of the movement!
