A trend that is slowly catching up amongst our Bollywood ladies is that of wearing a hat. They are wearing it to important functions, to promotional events, airports and parties. It’s not a very popular trend as of now, but its spreading like wildfire. Bollywood is synonymous with style and grace and fashion that set a benchmark for the public. Hats could be another trend trickling down to the masses to be sported.
