With fashion on the buzz every second, and runaways jam-packed with models swishing out new designs, fabrics, patterns and silhouettes, there is no end to creativity. Seasons change and fashion does too. Sometimes, it comes back a full circle.
India, known for it’s traditional clothing and ethnic wear, has a rich palette to offer. Whether it is the lightest of voile and cheese-cottons, or blockprints to the chiffons and georgettes, or the heavier and more drapey silks, to the intricate workmanship on fabrics and outfits, the culture has it all.
The latest offering is a mix of ethnicity that sits in an oblong manner on asymmetrical patterns. Be it dresses, kurtis or skirts, everything goes at a tangent!
Another trend is belted dresses, that cinch you in at the waist and make you look more chic and slimmer. Wear a maxi, or a dress that touches the floor; wearing a belt makes the outfit more rich and classy.
Ruffles have never gone out of style and one can wear it at the sleeves, neck or down the line of a dress. To give the final touch, a jacket has immeasurable value in that, it is a great way to re-wear old outfits! One can carry off a plain, printed or an embroidered jacket. Long, embroiderd and embellished ones are great to wear on floor-length dresses. Wear an asymmetrical skirt paired with a crop top and a jacket.
Tunics are an all-time favourite. They can be long, calf-length, medium, or touch the floor. Try on long tunics with open slits in the front. You can pair them with palazzos and dupattas.
Collared dresses are back in fashion. They look elegant and sophisticated. These dresses can be mini, long and can be paired with jackets, churidars and a dupatta.
Stylish, breezy and flouncy, palazzos make a great statement as one can wear them without fuss. Pair them with medium or short kurtis and dresses. Bell-pants, loose pants and cigarette pants can all be paired with different style of dresses. So let loose and wear your style on your sleeve.
