They say black isn't even a colour. Well, we beg to differ. Even though this shade isn't considered festive or lively, it's the one that is brightening up our lives - and from the looks of it, also those of our fave B-town beauties.
Within the last 10 days itself, we've spotted wedding function-worthy Indian ensembles that are making us want to break into a dance. Quite literally.
Sara Ali Khan is our latest sighting in bewitching black. Sara, who is promoting her new movie Kedarnath, stepped out in this Sabyasachi lehenga with floral embroidery, paired with a black sequinned blouse.
She topped the ensemble off with traditional gold chandbalis.
Look, how pretty! Alia Bhatt was spotted wearing this sexy black lehenga choli by Shyamal and Bhumika at KJo's Diwali party last week. Bhatt's all-black look featured a subtle floral border and was clubbed with big chandbalis, like Sara's.
You're starting to see why black isn't a dull choice for festive occasions, aren't you?
Now, if floral prints aren't your cup of tea, why don't you don a black saree, like Karisma Kapoor did? Dressed in a black and cream saree with stripes, Lolo looked as striking as ever.
But, while we have a soft spot for prints, an intense, solid black is just as stunning. Bollywood actresses, Shraddha Kapoor and Katrina Kaif think so too.
Or you can take the middle road like Ileana D'souza and play with glitter and texture instead.
