If you are under the impression that black and white is boring, think again because the divas of Bollywood are here to prove to us that monochrome fashion can be anything BUT boring. Whether it is black, or white, or a stunning marriage of the two in an outfit, Bollywood is here yet again to save the day for us mere mortals, starved of chic and simple fashion inspiration.
1. Sonam Kapoor’s airport style
The universally acknowledged style icon of Bollywood does not miss out on her style quotient, even when she is stepping out of the airport, in her tied black coat and white pleated midi from BODICE.

Deepika in an LBD for the Mumbai promotions of her film Bajirao Mastani is an absolute vision. This Dolce and Gabbana creation looks fabulous because of the lace bodice and the simple white Peter Pan collars.
3. Alia Bhatt dazzles in a midi dress
Alia Bhatt knows how to work the all-black look to her benefit, as demonstrated in this stunning Shivan and Naresh dress which she wore to the promotions of her film Kapoor and Sons.
4. Athiya Shetty shows how suits are for everyone
Athiya Shetty looked ravishing in a black and white tailored corset suit by Kanika Goyal, which she put on for the Hindustan Times Most Stylish Awards, in which she got the award for Most Stylish Newcomer, and we couldn’t agree more.
5. Karisma Kapoor and her eternal elegance
The elder of the Kapoor sister seems to be growing younger every day. Here too, she looks resplendent in this Gaurav Gupta all black outfit consisting of a peplum top with a stunning cape and trousers.
6. Neha Dhupia rocks the fashionable monochrome stripes
Neha Dhupia chose to work the stripes style with her fashionable monochrome printed coat from Raw Mango and a wonderfully simple black shift midi dress from BODICE.

Nargis Fakhri rocks black monochrome like no other in her black overalls by Madwell, which makes her look comfortable as well as fashion forward, because conventionally, you would expect dungarees to be funky and colourful, but here, they look edgy as well.
