There is an old saying that history repeats itself. We fervently wish that this is not true for most parts but, time and again we have seen things that were popular once upon a time becoming a rage yet again. Bollywood has been our number one source for fashion and entertainment for a long time now. We have been in awe of the stars and we love aping them, talk like them, own their style and what not. We have adapted a lot of their looks and actions in our daily life without realizing that we have done so. Here are some trends that actors of 70s, 80s and 90s made popular during their time and have stayed with us till today.
Rishi Kapoor – Bell-Bottoms
Men and women during the 70s considered bell-bottoms to be the trendiest thing discovered. The trend faded after a while only to return with a bang in 2016.
Sanjay Dutt – Long Hair
Men sporting long hair is a very popular trend nowadays. In B-town, it was made popular by none other than Sanjay Dutt who showed off his long locks in movies like Thanedaar (1990), Khalnayak (1993), Saajan (1991) and a few more.
Amitabh Bachchan – French Beard
Amitabh Bachchan sported the french beard-look before it was cool and rocked it completely.
Metallic colors are in now but, don’t forget it was Mithun da who showed off the real way of pulling them off.
Salman Khan – Dungarees
You have seen Salman Khan sporting these super-comfy dungarees in movies like Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya (1998) and Hello Brother (1999) and a few more in the late 90s. They are back in style now and you see a lot of women wearing them too.
Jeetendra – The Color White
You might love all your blacks but, Jeetendra showed that all-white is in a class of its own. He is seen innumerable times sporting all-whites and looking rather dapper in them.
Yes, trends have a way of repeating themselves. Hence, don’t throw your last season clothes so soon. You never know when they might be the in-thing again. If you wish to read the actress’ version of the article, click here.
