From jazzed-up versions of the sari to the resurgence of ’70s metallics, these are the trends to keep in mind

As OTT fabrics take a back seat, the focus has moved towards flowy and flirty looks. Off-shoulder tops, pocketed dresses and florals remain strong sources of inspiration. Jumpsuits, colourblocked kurtas and smart casuals promise to take your style chops to new heights. From velvet lehngas and sensuous body-cons to voluminous trousers, we give you a taste of the shapes, patterns and motifs which will see you through the following months.

Our favourite desi classic has been enjoying a resurgence of late! There’s never been a better time to wear the drape. With countless new versions and adaptations of the six yards doing the rounds, you can mix, match and tuck yours in a multitude of styles. Blazer jackets, shirt blouses and belted waists are here to take your sari game to a whole new level.

Fancy pants

There’s one key idea designers pursued while creating bottom wear for the festive season — volume. As a result, drop-crotch pants had quite a moment; plus, layered, boxy and pocketed trousers are all set to add drama to your solid structured separates. We suspect that it’s time to shelf our pencil pants….

Gold rush

We’re all smitten by this hot ’70s trend and how! For those who love to experiment with metallics, stock up on twin suits, saris and skirts. And for all the minimalists out there, feed your cravings with hints of glimmer — control the sheen by layering it with solid colours.

Viva velvet

What caught our fancy was the use of deep colours and lush fabrics on the ramp. Lead the fash pack by opting for regal lehngas; matching accessories from pouchettes to shoes will complete the look. Be it midis, jackets or long coats, velvet is here, there and everywhere!

Linear equations

From fine lines to bold zigzags, stripes are available in all shapes, sizes and colours, making a case for everyday dressing.

Flare play

Latin flamboyance visited the fashion radar last season and has stuck around ever since. Pile on tiered ruffled dresses for a romantic evening before they become the norm.

Check mate

Ginghams, windowpanes, madras and plaid patterns are the new wardrobe mainstays as far as street fashion is concerned. We particularly loved the pronounced use of checks on pantsuits!
