Gone are the days of bland and boring politics – figuratively and literally! While sartorial choices are still important and rule the public appearances of our women politicians, it is the personal style that makes them all different. Handloom sarees are still the number one choice when it comes to power dressing, which could be because of their connection to the roots as well as the comfort and opulence they offer.

No, they don’t sport the pallu on the head or wear dull shades, anymore! Have a look at top-5 stylish women politicians in India!
