Trends come and trends go, however it is important for a wardrobe upgrade to sneak in a few items even if you are not a major follower of “what’s trending”. Bringing in one or two items of clothing every season, mixing and matching them with existing collection in your wardrobe will give your outfits a major boost; and not even burn a hole in your pocket.
SS15 runways across the world saw a few trends returning and a few others marching steadily towards the future. There was a lot of retro with a modern rave twist. Few of my favorite and practically wearable trends included metallics, sequins, 70s style, sports luxe and shirt/shirt dresses.
- Metallics: They add an edge to a regular/plain outfit. A metallic skirt worn with a plain white shirt or t-shirt can take the outfit to whole new level. My personal favorite is a pair of metallic footwear (or two).
- Sequins : Very similar to metallics, adding sequins to a simple outfit changes the entire game. A black sequined blazer is my go-to. With the party season creeping up on us, this trend can be your lifesaver. Just make sure only one item of clothing/accessory has sequins on it.
- 70s style: There are some styles that will never go out of fashion and 70s is one of them. Celebrate the return of a classic era, with palazzo pants, Jump suits, crochet knits and suede outerwear.
- Sports luxe: Relax is the new cool. Alexander Wang re-confirmed this, with his collaboration with H&M. Joggers and trainers are no more confined to gyms and studios. Wear them for a movie/coffee or chill scenes with the buddies and they are sure to capture attention.
- Shirts and Shirt-dresses: Tuck it in, leave it hanging loose or wear it like a jacket. This season we saw the most versatile ways of wearing this underrated item of clothing. It is the most comfortable and yet hip fad and I couldn’t be more glad. I love shirts!
