Every year, designers from India and abroad launch their collections and declare fashion for the coming year, or rather, the season. While runway trends don’t see a replication and are often termed “bizarre”, most trends pick up momentum once celebrities are seen donning them or if National, International clothing lines take hints and take out everyday clothing around set style standards for the year.
Today we will be telling you about the latest trends that can be replicated, which are comfy, are colour oriented, and can make you pace up with fashionistas in a jiffy. Read on!
Heritage fabrics are back with a bang! From leading designers to top Brands, everyone is using this breathable fabric into contemporary designs. From rough spun to the finest mulmul, khadi is making a comeback and how! Go for khadi shirts, for a relaxed Summer look, throw on a belt to make it more diva-like! or just let the breezy beauty do the talking. Men, opt for short khadi kurtas in colours that suit your style! Pink is quite the number these days, so go for it if you please, or even a classic white kurta will speak oodles in terms of taste and sophistication.
If the past year didn’t see Indigo enough, this year sure will. Just kidding! Indigo has been there in the fashion scene ever since traditional block-printers in Jaipur are. This year, there will be a lot of talking around green indigo, so hoard up Kurta-Pallazzo styles, short Kurtis for work to pair up with your skinnies, jutties that have the print, big bags, and men can too opt for shirts and kurtas, or even waist jackets to be paired with kurtas for a more traditional look.
Not just Khadi, in general, Sustainability has seen a huge rise everywhere. From designers making more informed choices to celebs doing their bit on playing influencers and making the right pick, even the younger lot is shifting towards sustainable choices. The percentage of eco-friendly and recycled fibres & fabrics in retail brands is seeing a rise. From Bamboo toothbrushes to awareness about plastic, to natural dyes, people are far more aware and wanting to make a change.
Be a part of the responsible trend by opting for reduce, reuse, and recycle.
Sustainable fashion is definitely a hit in 2019! With big Brands like Wills Lifestyle taking the plunge to go 100 per cent natural and has switched biodegradable materials, it’s time more brands take lead and carry on the sustainability baton.
It’s all about Pastels this year! From pretty, flowing chiffon dresses, to beautiful kurtas, to sarees, and even the pastel-on-pastel trend, eye-soothing pastels are the talk of the town. Integrate pastels in your daily style by pairing pastel kurtas with breezy pallazos, or tailor-fit pants for work. Throw on a strappy maxi dress for a quick brunch with friends, or try the pastel-on-pastel trend by going pastel from head-to-toe.
Print on print is everywhere, from the Spring/ summer 2019 collections of designers across the globe, with prints and patterns together in outfits, and a lot of power clashing, it’s a good year for co-ords. Whether you love the idea of Western clothing or believe in the modern day ethnic wear, print-on-print will be a huge thing in 2019.
Sarees are pacing faster than LBDs. With the younger crowd opting for more sarees in their wardrobes, unusual pairing options are making the cut. Pick one and pair it up with a ruffled blouse, or a strappy one and make all the heads turn. Glam it with some jewellery and let your style do the talking!
Bright corals in shoes, clothing, and accessories will be a huge number in 2019, mark our words. The World is talking about Pantone’s colour of the year – ‘Living Coral’, which is a bright hue between orange and pink and derives its inspiration from the coral reefs facing extinction. From Bridal dresses to everyday maxi dresses, blouses, accessories, and even jewellery, it’s going to be a grand coral affair. Make sure you use the trend to the fullest by adding a lot of colour to your wardrobe!
You’d probably say, layering in Summer? Well, that’s going to be another great trend this year. Over-sized shoulders, contemporary cuts, quirky constructive designs, gender-neutral clothing, and a lot of sheer is what you’d see throughout the year. The technique is to layer sheer pieces over opaque ones, think of mesh, sheer chiffon, lace, and you’d be fine.
