How to Dress for a Bollywood Party

Bollywood is a term used to describe the film industry in India. These films are Mumbai based and in the Hindu language. A Bollywood party mimics the costumes worn by Bollywood actors and actresses. This party is typically filled with bright colors and exotic fabrics. If you get invited to your first Bollywood party and are unsure of what to wear, the easiest thing to do is to wear a sari. However, saris are not common dress for most people. In this case, creating an impromptu costume is best.

Wrap it around your waist once and throw the other end over your shoulder, so that the other end hangs in front of you.
