Village belle Bijlee kept her signature style chic and edgy. Though the promos promised desi looks, she settled for pretty poncho tops (black or white) paired with pop hue skirts or trousers. The black boots remained in place. Not to miss the black lacquers and tattooed skin — stars on her right arm, rose on her neck and a teasing ‘dekho magar pyar se’ tattoo on her lower back. We love her fun hair — royal purple streaks — or wild tresses mostly left open and sometimes played up via pigtails and braids. She was so not the average village girl, but hey, it’s Bollywood.

Those lovely lehngas that popped up regularly in the promos surfaced a couple of times in Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola, as its fashion highlights. Far from traditional, we spotted a trend or two. To get the Bijlee look, ditch your teeny-weeny choli for a waist-length blouse with three-quarter sleeves. Team with cropped lehnga skirts in happy shades like red. Enter borders, bootis and bangles.
