While we love our winter layers and the bliss of hot chocolate on cold mornings, what we love even more are the warm summers sipping our tropical drinks while soaking up the sun. Now, there is only one way of doing this right and that is: trendily. We have curated a list of all the reigning clothing trends that warrants you to stay on top of your style game this season.
Read on to know what you should definitely be adding to your closet in the summer of ‘19.
#1 Tie-dye: Kaleidoscopic print is in, again!
Whether on feminine blouses or breezy kaftans for the beach, the tie-dye prints are everywhere! This summer demands we explore and have fun with this trend, and given that this trend spells sustainable fashion, it’s a win-win! Take a cue from leading English fashion designer Stella McCartney’s: her tie-dye printed jumpsuit radiates a fun yet contemporary vibe. Indian fashion bloggers are also of the opinion that tie-dye is making a comeback, and incorporating this trend into your wardrobe is easy. According to Delhi-based blogger Nikita Verma of RavingRage fame, “Tie-dye print t-shirts would be great for a casual, summery look.” Think flowy maxi dresses and matching bandeau headbands, and you are ready for a summer getaway!
#2 Utility clothing: Balancing function and fashion
A complete steer from the tie-gye gypsy trend is the utilitarian design trend. This involves cargo pants, canvas overalls, multi-pocketed jackets, sleeved jumpsuits, and more. We love how functional yet stylish this fad is. Wondering how to team up a complete look? Fashion blogger Simrat Marwah recommends sticking to classic neutral colors. “A white t-shirt or even a beige one can be so versatile. You can dress it up or down depending on the occasion.” A thoroughly fashionista-approved way to adorn this rage is to pair the masculine cargo pants with chic heels that declare juxtaposition.
#3 Neon palette: Go bold, go fluorescent
Bhumika Thakkar, a Mumbai-based fashion blogger, believes we will witness a takeover by fluorescent hues this summer. “Neon in quite in trend currently, especially neon green.” Take a cue from actor Parineeti Chopra, who does complete justice to this neon-green sporty top that she teamed with a black skirt.
If you are looking to strike a balance, Simrat recommends, “Layer neutrals with bold fluorescent colors. Take your classic white t-shirt and wear it with neon orange trousers.” Nikita also thinks the neon trend can be pulled off at the workplace. “A neon jacket (or blazer) with black trousers is a great trendy outfit idea for office wear,” she suggests for those who find an all-neon suit rather bold.
With eye-catching hues all over merchandise like clothing, belts, bags, shoes, and even sunglasses, the attention-grabbing neon color palette ensures that this summer is going to be a hot one!
#4 Animal Print: Wild is in
Splashed all over fashion magazines and Instagram’s explore page is the most re-creatable trend of this season: the animal print, especially snakeskin. An all-over animal print dress is a sure shot way to make your ensemble a glamorous one, just like Bollywood actor Kriti Sanon is seen in this deep-blue leopard-print dress by Kate Spade New York. “You could wear it (animal print) on dresses, pants, or jackets,” suggests Bhumika.“If you feel it is too bold, then go for a printed belt or a bag,” she recommends.
We hear that this summer is going to be a balmy one, and we look forward to keeping the fire blazing by fueling our wardrobes with the above-mentioned raving trends.
