Fashion forward women are seeing things in black and white this season. Bold, retro black-and-white stripes have made a freewheeling comeback on the ramp, and Bollywood’s top girls — Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Kanagana Ranaut — are rocking the trend with élan.


Designers give the classic style a big thumbs-up. “This trend is a major hit globally and evokes a strong European connect,” says designer Suneet Varma. Delhi’s own fashionistas, too, are enthusiastically lapping up the trend.

Shilpi Dhar of fashion brand Giovani says, “Black and white stripes are very eye-catching, and also clean, crisp and classic. Our black-and-white striped tops, dresses and jumpsuits are flying off the shelves this season.”

Stylists say the key to rock this look is to keep it simple and steer clear of over-accessorising.
