Occasion specific attires in Indian wear instantly bring to mind the lehenga, the quintessential outfit that works like a charm and never fails to leave a mark. In the past couple of seasons, Bollywood stars have been spotted choosing black versions over the rest, hence establishing a non-conformist fashion appeal. Who did we pick for our #FlashbackFriday feature that highlights the black-dominant lehenga? Alia Bhatt & Deepika Padukone, whose remarkable looks from the times gone by are still on our minds.

Black Indian Wear Worn Two Ways

Continue reading to know how each of the Bollywood actresses styled their black centric occasion wear in equally unique ways!

Alia Bhatt's Black Floral Lehenga

Wearing a monochrome look in black, Alia Bhatt went the unconventional route for a Diwali party. The all-over black lehenga was sourced from designer duo Shyamal & Bhumika, and came with quaint florals embroidered at the hem. Save the placement embroidery, the rest of the look was in exuberant black, the 'non-colour' undoubtedly standing out from the crowd. A bandeau blouse with straps and a matching dupatta featuring zari work accompanied the actress's lehenga, all fitting in perfectly to present an impeccable Indian wear outfit. Should you be looking for a similar iteration to wear for an upcoming intimate ceremony, scroll down to shop from our selection of similar items below.

Keeping the attention on her outfit, Alia Bhatt accessorised minimally, opting for statement earrings while forgoing the rest of jewellery. A small bindi rounded off the 27-year-old's festive look.

Deepika Padukone's Black & Beige Pairing

Also opting for black in her Indian wear attire, albeit a different route, Deepika Padukone wore a black and beige coordinated outfit for an appearance. Whilst the plunging full-sleeved blouse and embroidered dupatta that she wore focussed on the neutral bold colour, the Bollywood actress's lehenga was a fully embroidered beige pick from Sabyasachi. A lesson in styling the subtle and stark hues, the traditional look was styled the new-age way. Love Deepika Padukone's take on the black lehenga?
