From an Angrakha to a Ghagra Choli, there are so many reasons for Bollywood to look up to Rajasthan. The intricate embroidery, the mirror work, the embellishments and the list is unending. Often, we hear that various designers get inspired by the beautiful and vibrant Rajasthan for their lovely collections whether they have an ancestral connection or not with this state. And the truth is that we all have fallen in love with this state, at least once.We can go on talking about the sequins, the shells, the beads all day long.However, we bring to you five most popular fashion trends from the dazzling Rajasthan.

The Pretty Lehariya
The simple combination of tie and die has won many hearts. Its uniqueness and a distinct striped style have been seen in quite a few movies. The most recent one that I can think of is Sonam Kapoor flaunting her lehariya saree in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. Get one for yourself from Jaypore.com.
The Block prints and Bandhej
As lehariya, bandhej or bandhani is also a result of tie and die. However, the designing is done differently as compared to the lehariya. Small or large bindings are done to create designs on bandhej sarees or dupattas. The elegant Gracy Singh and the stylish Amrita Singh were seen wearing beautiful Bandhani sarees in Lagaan and Vivaah respectively.You can even buy them at Bandhej.com.
