1. Polka dots
The story of the latest hit Telugu film, Jersey, is nuanced and perfectly layered. Set in the early 1980s, this Nani starrer takes us through the life of a cricketer called Arjun (Nani) who made it, almost. His one true support system remains his wife Sara, played by Shraddha Srinath. While it’s a great film, it’s the touch of retro fashion that makes it pleasing to our eyes too. After watching it, here are the five key retro fashion elements you will want to bring back.
Polka dots and midi dresses. From Audrey Hepburn to Samantha Akkineni, everyone has adorned the classic polka-dotted midi dresses on screen. In Jersey, Sara did the same. It’s time you get one, too.
