Lately, everything has been about fashion. With watching celebs all dolled up in innumerable varied attires on our phone screens all the time, thanks to social media, everyone now wishes to become a fashionista to some extent.  The real conundrum arrives when we go about hunting for some fashion outfit we don’t know the exact name of.

Besides, Bollywood has always been about welcoming new fashion trends through celebs, which are then imitated by you, me and others alike, be it the ripped denim, off-shoulder blouses, simple ethnic outfits, etc.
