In order to help you navigate through the upcoming festive season, we have created a trend guide from day 3 at Lakme Fashion Week — from the runway’s key looks to the colours and bling to invest in, here’s everything you need to know.

Colour blocked 

Designers revitalised their wears for winter festive season by sprucing up their colour mix — from pastel hued mixes to brightened tints meshed together, colour blocking is clearly a huge trend to watch out for.

Demure dames

Saree’s are a mainstay this season but the way they are styled has been switched up quite a bit in the past few days. At day three, the designers opted for a more conservative yet retro take when it came to their blouses — full-sleeved, demure and sophisticated.

50 shades of grey

From gradient to grey-dient, designers Nikita Mhaisalkar, Amit Aggarwal and Sayantan Sarkar were besotted with exploring the transitions of greys to silvers.

Saree in Paris

If going retro wasn’t enough, the models sashayed down the runway as if they were walking down the streets of Paris wearing jackets over their sarees. Designer Sailesh Singhania affirmed our notions with his leather gloved additions.

Midas touch

Metallics are going to be huge this season, but the golds that shone through yesterday have left us with quite the heady hangover.

Orange is the new black 

Orange was the colour of the day with designers Nikita Mhaisalkar and Rahul Mishra taking a huge liking to the hue.

Dusty pastels

If bright pastels are the colours of summer, a more dulled version of the hues are clearly a hit for the winter — think dusty pinks, mints and peach.

Princess diaries

The trend may have started at Cannes this year courtesy of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan but the designers too seem to have been taken with the whole princess ball gown dressing attires.

Ruffled up

Ruffles were the detail du jour earlier this year, but with the transition to winter, it seems as though the trend still persists but in lesser, more minimal detail.

Shirt-dress

Lucky for us, our favourite trend seems to remain a mainstay through out this year. We’re especially loving the maxi style orange shirt dress number by Nikita Mhaisalkar.

Splits and Slits 

It wouldn’t be gown season without a slit or two to coming down the runway!

Earn your stripes

When it came to the contemporary flock of designers, they seem to have all taken to the stripe mania in some form or another — slick striped detail to pinstriped goodness, its all here this season to stay.

1-800 hotline bling 

Because festive season isn’t complete without some eye-striking jewellery, designers Falguni and Shane Peacock dedicated their entire show in collaboration with the jewellery priestess Farah Khan who showcased her blinged out concoctions, following the trend was Amit Aggarwal with his antique silver statement earrings that contrasted with his metallic gowns — evidently ‘more is less’ when it comes to jewellery this season.
