The ever-evolving world of fashion goes through a change in trends that are completely different within a few months. Most fashion weeks leave us inspired and with the advent of social media, influencers and celebrities posting 'look of the day' on social media platforms, it isn't very difficult to keep up with the fashion trends. Read on to find out the trends to look out for and style yourself this autumn winter season.
Fuchsia and hues of pink ruled the runways. Bipasha Basu was seen walking down the ramp in a Fuchsia pink Karishma Deepa Sondhi lehenga. Don’t be afraid to wear bright colours if the mood strikes you! Our clothing sensibilities are incomplete without a pop of colours. Earthy tones ranging from olives to indigo blues and burnt coppers and metallics are a huge trend.
Pleating and Ruffles
Fabric texturing like pleats and ruffles are interesting elements, and easier to team up with accessories, textured garments. Rejoice this season with dramatic, voluminous feminine fashion. Ruffles and pleats are seen with tiered variations among the collections of Gauri & Nainika, ‘Not So Serious’ by Pallavi Mohan and Rabani and Rakha.
The dramatic and rebellious sleeve is high this season, from long exaggerations to flounced flutes and puffy iterations. Designers Madhu Jain, Diksha Khanna and brand Pinnacle by Shruti Sancheti were noticeable in this regard. Keeping with enhanced sleeve trend with a twist, designers Wendell Rodricks, Rina Dhaka, and brand Nikasha showcased one-shoulder outfits, instant glam like a chic in dresses, blouses or tops.
Bold oriental prints from East were spotted this season with sarees getting a makeover with these prints as well as Phoenix and bird prints. Whether embroidered or applique, flora is here to stay.
Western-influenced fringes experiment at multiple areas like sleeves, collars, hems, shoulders, and back. Either you opt for metallic or go for head-to-toe fringe with a coordinated dress and topper, you’re guaranteed to turn heads this winter.
If there is one winter staple you need to stock up on, it has to be plaid. The runway witnessed fresh and intuitive ways of incorporating plaid like Abraham and Thakore and Sahil Aneja. Però included Scottish tartan in their collection.
Nodding to male formality with a dash of a feminine edge is universally flattering. These looks are in full power. Double-breasted blazers and jackets are classic, masculine, and look great when done right and these are major this season.
Say hello to baker boy hats and berets. It’s made appearances on many runways from International fashion weeks to Amazon India Fashion Week. Designers Vineet Bahl and Pallavi Mohan, had baker boy hats and berets in their collection this season. What trend are you most excited to try?
