12 International Fashion Trends For A Wardrobe Upgrade
Jump on the jacket ‘band’wagon
These bad boys have been inspired by staid band/cavalry jackets but their couture renditions are painfully cool. Wear it with skinny leather jeans like Gigi Hadid for a quick flip to the dark side.
The Edwardian collar
Of the very many gifts from the Victorian era, the Edwardian collar takes the cake. They can transform a regular shirt to elegant evening wear and endow you with all the wisdom of past years. Maybe not, but we guarantee you’ll look the part.
The tassel tale
The king of rock’n’roll would’ve been delighted to see tassels and fringes make a proud comeback all these years later. Besides lending an easygoing vibe to your ensemble, it’s also a great way to remind your friends that you’re always down for a fun evening.
The superhero cape
We’ve finally realised that we have to be our own superheroes; a cape is the first step in that direction after all. Billowing capes are a great appendage to almost anything you’re wearing whether it’s a shirt, a dress or a skirt. We’re predicting that these are going to be replacing the mundane trench coat for quite some time.
This one was a tough cookie to crack, but we had to because sheer is the most ethereal fabric in the universe. Most runways showcase extremely risque interpretations of sheer that we can’t even imagine taking to the streets in India. However, it could turn out to be quite the dream combination if worn with shorts and a bustier or a bodycon dress.
The gypsy queens
Bohemian accents draw out the free spirit in us and perhaps this is why they’re favourites with creative directors of all major fashion houses. Pair it with a tastefully embroidered jacket for best results.
Miss bossy pants
We knew those invincible low-waist jeans were going to find a worthy opponent someday. Besides being exceptionally comfortable, high-waist jeans are also super flattering. Wear your pair with a crisp white shirt and a smart trench coat to look your crisp best.
Something up your sleeve
‘Too big’ isn’t a complaint anymore, when we speak of sleeves. We’ve seen all kinds of bizarre but endearing patterns this season and we’re ready to experiment. Moreover, silhouettes are always a great element to play with when you like to stick to a certain colour palette and you know you have those inexplicable ‘all black’ days all too often.
All work and more play
Work-wear just got a whole new meaning. From pantsuits with slogan tees to monotone blazers paired with coral bermudas, the runway equipped us with a bunch of ideas that look like promising workplace winners.
The terribly tiny tote
Utilitarian bags are passé. Leaving your house with a bag that could possibly fit your whole wardrobe into it isn’t cool anymore. Opt for a micro clutch in the shape of a popular cartoon character for brownie points.
The ‘not so’ cold shoulder
While the cold shoulder and off shoulder trend are ruling fashion boards right now, we are delighted to see the one-shoulder style being resuscitated quietly. It’s chic, leaves much to the imagination and allows you to show off all that time you’ve been spending at the gym (or typing away furiously at the keyboard).
Colour me pink and yellow
Sunflower yellow and bubblegum pink were the chosen hues for spring-summer. And we can imagine why after looking at some of the models from Salvatore Ferragamo and Valentino.
