Keeping up with the constantly changing trends in the fashion industry comes with its own excitement. The fashion industry swears by the expression ‘Change is the only constant’, its all about reinventing themselves. It’s time to bid adieu to our warm winter clothes and to make way for some of the coolest fashion trends this season. The Spring/Summer 2018 fashion trends are all about a little bit of drama, a little bit of boldness, fancy prints and a whole lot of comfort. Gauging from the runways at recent fashion weeks fun aztec prints, bold sheer and slit dresses, dramatic fringes and our all-time favorite floral prints are here to stay this season.
Mosaic and Aztec prints
These prints have a tribal touch to it and are available in a variety of colour combinations and monochromes. These prints allow us to play with a lot of colours and yet never let it go too overboard. The small patterns ensure that the colour combinations are never overwhelming. You can wear a mosaic print t-shirt to college, or a aztec print summer dress/maxi to a brunch, a printed scarf can also add some colours to your otherwise monochrome outfit. Teem an aztec print dress with a black jacket and black boots and you are party ready. For an outing during the day throw on a mosaic print shrug over denims and plain white tee and you are good to go. Aztec print playsuits will make your summers brighter. You can choose to add a splash of colours to your outfit or wear an entirely colourful one, whatever matches your mood.
Slits in cocktail dresses, to slits in wide-leg trousers, to slits in skirts, from long slits to short slits, looks like slits are here to stay. It’s a trend that has made its way back into our wardrobes after the nineties when they were last a rage. While the celebrities are showing some skin on the red carpet, you can rock the slit in your daily or party looks. When you envision a gown for a party, you will probably have imagined the slit too. You can select your outfit depending on the size of the slit that makes you feel comfortable. Wear a long tunic with a slit over your favourite pair of jeans to keep it casual, like in the picture or wear wide leg pants with slits with a button down top to make you brunch ready.
If you think India is not prepared for this fashion trend, think again! While we cannot go as bold as the choice of sheer clothing goes abroad, we can pick variations of it. Sheer is the combination of choosing to look bold and modest at the same time. Like the long dress in the picture above, an element of fashion and modesty is balanced, giving off a very elegant vibe. There many variations of the use of sheer in tops, skirts, short dresses and evening gowns. One thought that crosses your mind while selecting a sheer outfit is, ‘How much is too much?’ Don’t fret, you can choose the paneled sheer or good camisoles to go with your outfits. Another hack is to choose dark colour sheer outfits, this is a win situation, as you can wear sheer and not fear showing too much skin. Sheer tops can be worn with high waisted pants for a more formal look, a sheer skirt can be worn with a tank top and wedges. One variation of sheer you should surely try are the sheer socks, they look cute and add a fancy touch to your outfit.
You may have thought the fringe had finished its share of limelight with all those fringe bags everywhere but be ready for it to become the new favorite off the rack. The layering and fringes spell drama and oomph. This is one trend that can be squeezed into every occasion. A sunny day out with friends? Team up a fringe top with shorts and flats. Is it a party affair? Wear a fringe shrug over your little black dress and put on your fringe boots/sandals to complete your look. The fringe is making its way to skirts, shorts, and denims, shrugs, jackets. Be prepared for the fringe to take over your wardrobe and why not? What is there not to love in this effortlessly chic trend. If nothing else you can put on a pair of fringe earrings and instantly up the style quotient of your outfit.
