8 Summer Fashion Trends That Will Rule 2016
If you're one of those who take a keen interest in the changing fashion trends, you might have already checked out the style statements that will rule the summer season this year. Come summer, people will be stocking up on these specific trends like crazy. You're not up-to-date with what's gonna be in this season? No worries, we have you covered! Here is a list of the summer fashion trends that will rule 2016.
Red is gonna be the colour of the season! If the fashion gurus are to be believed, this colour will go all out during the summer months. You could probably spot anything from a red kurta to a red maxi dress on the streets and in the malls this summer. Go girl, paint the town (in shades of) red!
This fashion trend is surely here to stay. It was a big hit last season and this summer is gonna be the continuity. Long gone are the usual ways to drape a saree; fashion designers nowadays are experimenting with some bizarre concepts of a saree and we're not complaining! The dhoti saree, the cocktail saree and now the jumpsuit saree; these will surely make heads turn the moment you step into a room! Don't hesitate to add your little touch to a saree by teaming it up with a belt or a shirt because experiment is the word.
LSD stands for the little summer dress which will replace the LBD this season. The LSD is available in various avatars and I bet you won't be able to pick just one. The prints, colour and flair are entirely your call; all that you need to remember is to keep it small and significant, something that instantly catches the eye.
True enough; less is more! Go minimalistic with some monochrome kurtas; they have been a huge hit on runways this season. Wear it along with a pair of palazzos or Pakistani salwars, add a hint of jewelry and makeup and you're done! You could also team up your kurtas with sneakers to add the chic factor to your ensemble.
Stripes continue to be a huge hit this season. Along with adding a dramatic effect to your look, stripes also actually make you look slimmer. This look has been advised for the apple-shaped figure time and again.
Teaming up individual pieces of an attire to create an entire ensemble is what you need to be doing more often this summer. Fashion designers are expecting separate elements getting a boost this season. One major advantage of separate fashion elements is that they can be easily paired with almost anything. Take your pick from jackets, kotis, palazzo pants and kurtas.
Handwoven garments will be used extensively this summer. Handwoven cotton, khadi, crochet and hand-made lace and nets are the common element in the summer fashion collections of most of the designers.
Comfort was and will be fashion buzzword, especially during the excruciating summer months. Easy-to-wear clothing is back and we love it. Even Bollywood celebrities can't stop donning baggy jeans and sweatshirts! C'mon, your wardrobe too deserves some cool loose shirts and pretty jumpsuits!
