A take on fashion trends 2017

Everyone is talking about upcoming trends right now, fashion industry is buzzing with fashion weeks and shows all over the world. So, I thought giving you some of my top picks. While I always try to keep up with trends, one thing I have always emphasized “Find your own style and what suits you best!”. It is not necessary to follow every IN TREND and unfollow every trend that is OUT! After all what are trends? They are revival of old styles and fashion with a neoteric twist(mostly!). I love fashion that is real, wearable, relatable yet unique, that is what you will see here.

My picks are random and in no particular fashion. I will give my verdict at the end of each trend whether I will WEAR IT OR NOT!

Stripes: I don’t think this trend is new, as long as I remember stripes have been there forever. But the new trend gives it a tricky twist! Emphasis is on wearing horizontal and vertical stripes together. Also basic colors are taking a backseat, it will more bold and brighter.

Ruffles: Ruffles are growing bigger by the day, be it on sleeves, dresses, skirts or shoulders. They give more structure and body to your look.

Strong shoulders: ’80s are coming back, while there are so many fashion inspirations which can be derived from the era, one that tops my list is strong shoulders. This style gives such a power packed and influential look, that it is difficult to ignore your persona.

Go sustainable: Now, this is not a trend but a well thought approach towards fashion, which was showcased at this year’s Lakme fashion week spring 2017. It is the responsibility of the fashion industry as well as customers to endorse fashion which has less environmental impact and also fulfills our social responsibility. Future needs clothing brands which work around sustainability.  And I think Indian textiles does absolute justice to this concept!
