Lakme Fashion Week Day 4: Trend Spotting
While wedding style might not change all that drastically from season to season, there still are noteworthy trends, details and fun updates to take a peek at and get a jump on right now. Take a quick look at what went down at fashion week on day 4.
Lehenga choli’s have gotten updated quite a bit every season, but the latest take is down right hot — we’re talking barely there strapless bustier blouses that are minimal and just plain gorgeous.
If barely there blouses aren’t your style, then perhaps you could take a chance on caped crop tops instead — over a lehenga or sharara, these multi-taskers are extremely flattering and help show off your collar bone in the best possible light.
Who doesn’t love a little peek-a-boo detail on their outfits every now and then?! Designers do too, which is why Asa Kazingmei took a page out of some SnM style and placed his models in skin tight leather bodices with extreme cut-outs.
The reign of fitted pants and churidaars in traditional wear is clearly done and dusted because it’s all about the flared sharara bottoms now and personally, we couldn’t be happier!
While fashion week began with a surge of bright hues, designers started opting for a darker route as the days went by — if the pieces at Nachiket Barve and SVA were any indication, its that midnight blues are here to slay.
With a ton of bardot blouses doing the rounds, seeing a glimpse or two of gorgeously cut asymmetric one shouldered tops were a sight for sore eyes and extremely flattering too!
From soft baby pinks to downright in-your-face hot pinks, the colour was present in dolled up silhouettes, perfect for the festive season to come.
When it came to the contemporary lot of designers, suiting up women is slouchy blazer-like silhouettes was a fresh take from all the bridal goodness we saw yesterday.
Nothing says bridal like rich deep shades red coming down the runway! From crimson, to fiery scarlet and sindoor — we’re definitely adding this shade to our ethnic armoire.
A far cry from boring straight lines, present on tops and bottoms, scalloped hemlines were a refreshing element with the bridal wear designers this season.
Dare to bare
We’d like to offer a noteworthy mention to Nachiket Barve, who propelled the see-through movement into something hot with his leggy models showing off their limbs in those sheer and diaphanous skirts.
Who says you have to be a prima ballerina to master the tulle skirt? The ultra feminine trend was all over the place with designers Anushree Reddy, Shreeya Somaiya and Monika Nidhii opting for it in place of silk lehengas.
