From crop tops, chokers, jumpsuits, long t-shirts to short dresses and sarees, Bollywood actress Karisma Kapoor was quite a rage when it came to fashion in the 90s. It seemed as if the makeover before Aamir Khan’s ‘Raja Hindustani’ transformed the beautiful actress from a caterpillar into a butterfly.
On the actress’ birthday, let’s reminisce those old iconic days when fashionistas like Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone didn’t exist and there was only one fashion icon, Karisma Kapoor.
Here are some trends adorned by the sensation that made a huge impact on the 90s fashion:
#1. Crop Tops
While crop tops re-featured in the market last year, it can be traced back to the 90s when actress Karisma Kapoor flaunted her sleek waist while shooting for ‘Dil Toh Paagal Hai’ alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Madhuri Dixit.
As a matter of fact, the actress was seen showing off a similar look in her movie ‘Judwaa’ opposite Salman Khan. She received accolades for her fashion sense, with many trying to copy the diva to look fashionable.
#2. Short Dresses
In the era of long dresses, where actresses were mostly seen wearing salwar suits, jeans, and lehnga, Lolo, as she is fondly called, broke away from the stereotypes and wore short and sexy dresses on screen and in parties. Thus, one would see her clad in various types of dresses in the 90s.
Therefore, from hot velvet dresses to short skirts, you name it and the actress wore it on screen. She did not only carry them with poise but complimented the look so well, that many tried to replicate her style.
#3. High Waist
There was a time when high waist fashion was at its peak and no one was better than Karisma Kapoor in carrying off that style. The confidence with which she wore high waist shorts and skirts spoke volumes about her personality and her comfort with her attire.
Before crop tops re-appeared in fashion, jumpsuits became the major trend dominating the fashion sphere with many actresses and girls wearing the dress for a formal occasion. But did you know, the trend of jumpsuits existed from the 90s and Lolo was the Queen of Jumpsuits? The grace with which she carried jumpsuits made the outfit suitable for official functions.
#5. Oversized Shirts
While the fashion to wear over-sized shirts may have re-emerged now, it existed from the 90s. The actress has sported many oversized shirts in her movies and was successful in making a fashion statement.
