Do you want to look different than the rest of the crowd at the next Indian party or wedding? Borrow It Bindaas recommends you to go vintage! Bollywood has always been an inspiration when it comes to vintage fashion. So we share a few vintage trends with you, which can work striking with your Indian attire!

Winged Eyeliner

The wing tip “Cat’s Eye” is a signature look from the Golden Era of Bollywood. The eyeliner is extended upwards at the ends to create an elegant look. This look will be complete and lovely with a fresh face accented with classic black winged eyeliner.


Vintage Jewels

“Old is gold” holds very true for vintage jewelry as the designs remind us of the Royal era. Although nowadays this look is very contemporary. To sparkle in this trend, wear a big vintage neck-piece on a silk saree and you are ready to go! If you prefer earrings, then go for the jhumkas.



The fragrance of jasmine is alluring, but when it comes to fashion, adorning your hair with jasmine flowers is a style statement. A floral hairstyle can jazz-up any simple outfit as well. Wear jasmine flowers better known as “Gajras” over braids or a bun for any wedding event. You will not only smell heavenly, but look beautiful as well!


Floral Print

Why limit flowers to your hair only? Floral prints started in the 1950s and are a superb way to work with the vintage trend in a modern fashion. Floral print sarees, tops, dresses, and pants are a great way to go classic. But make sure you keep your accessories simple and let the floral stand out!


Braid Hairstyle

Hairstyles can make a world of difference to your look and braids are making a big comeback with a side twist! The side braid has always been the elemental part of traditional fashion in India.  One advantage you’ll have with making a braid is that it won’t mash up as compared to other hairstyles.  We think the side braid is pretty chic and a quick way to look awesome!
