Bollywood Costume Ideas

Create An Amazing Bollywood Outfit

Bollywood is fabulous, colorful, and fun. I've been watching Bollywood films for years and have always loved the Indian clothing the women wear in the films. I was first introduced to Bollywood films whilst working nights in a care home with an Indian colleague, and fell in love straight away with the whole look and style that I saw in the films.

Bollywood costumes are interesting and look beautiful, they are a very glamorous choice for a costume party and because they come in so many different fabrics and patterns it is easy to find one that you will love.

There is a large selection of authentic Indian clothing here, as well as ready made Bollywood costumes, and some beautiful shoes and accessories that would be fantastic to complete your Bollywood look.

Amongst all this you will find video clips to give you costume inspiration, Bollywood make-up tips, and also an instructional video on how to tie a sari.

Properties Of A Good Bollywood Costume

Bollywood costumes are generally bright and colorful, the fabric often contains beautiful prints, accents, flower details, and patterns, sequins, or even sparkling mirrors that are sewn into the cloth.

Good colors to go for are bright pinks, which are often mixed with golds and lime greens, other good colors are aqua, purples, reds with golds, and greens.

Bollywood costumes are generally not that short, the tops can be short, but I have not seen many films where the girls are wearing very short skirts, long flowing skirts are favoured which are worn with a short cropped top and shawl, other styles of outfits have pretty tunics which are worn with leggings and a shawl, and then of course there are the saris...
