Top Trends of 2015
Tassels, Statement earrings, Spikes and Sequins are the big trends seen on the runways for Spring Summer 2015. Here are some ways that you can adapt these trends and stay stylish.
Tassels – You could work this trend any which way you desire. A heavily embroidered dupatta with tassel embellishments at the corners paired with a simple shalwar kameez, is perfect for a pooja at home. A more contemporary way to rock this trend is, to wear a tasseled jacket or a fringe bag with a pair of jeans and a shirt. Or you could choose to play it safe and simply experiment with the trend and wear a gold coloured tasseled cuff with your sari.Statement earrings look best when worn with a simple outfit. For maximum effect, wear a knee length sundress with a pair of earrings that almost scrape your shoulders. It’s a sure shot way of getting people to notice you. Long earrings look best on people with a slender neck. The best way not to overdo this look, is to skip the necklace while choosing to sport statement earrings. Look stunning while wearing a heavy georgette sari with chandelier earrings at a wedding cocktail party. Being the odd one out and not wearing a dress to the party is sometimes a good thing. For me, the sari is the most fascinating and versatile piece of clothing. It is made for our body types. Believe me when I say that Indian women look sensational in a sari.My favourite trend of the new year is Spikes. It shouts rebel! Each one of us has a rebellious side and what better way to express it rather than through fashion? Whether its a clutch, a necklace or ballet flats be runway ready in spikes. The British designer brand Alexander McQueen is the cult brand for accessories with spikes. You just have to own a McQueen clutch! Get in touch with your rebel side by sporting a spike ear cuff by our very own Manish Arora for Amprapali. Manish Arora is well known for his edgy designs. Today, you have the freedom to mix and match. So go ahead and be different – Wear your spikes with something as traditional as a sari. As Indians, let’s admit that we adore bling! Fortunately for us, sequins is still a big trend for the new year. Whether you want to go all out or be subtle, there is something for everyone who wants to wear this trend. I prefer to stick to sequinned accessories and keep my outfit plain. But the choice is yours. Wear a sequinned belt to dress up the otherwise plain little black dress. The same belt can be worn to complete a pair of jeans and a white shirt. If you’re aiming for a more formal look and still want to wear sequins, pair a sequinned bag or a clutch with your sari. Fashion is about being clever and choosing accessories that can be repeated with different clothes for different occasions.
