Few new trends and emerging trends were seen in the Lakme fashion week 2016, some of which are sure to emerge as the top fashion trends this year. Some of my favourites have been detailed below:
Jackets: Jackets seemed to be the top trend in this fashion week. It was a favourite outfit of designers and was combined with almost everything including saree and skirt. This a trend to watch out for. Jackets in all lengths type -small , mid-length and maxi length were seen. It's definitely going to find place in the wardrobes of the trendy people. Definitely a good idea to wear a jacket instead of a blouse over a saree..!
Maxi tops: Maxi or long length is the key this season...Be it top, kurti, blouse or jacket, a maxi length with a slit is sure to create the magic. A lot of designers highlighted this trend in this fashion week
Pastel colors: Pastels are always the best and the safest bet when it comes to summers clothes. A lot of designers stuck to whites, blues, creams, peach etc. Some ombre shades were also seen
Graphic prints:A lot of quirky prints in line with the international trends were also seen in this fashion week. Geometrical designs are in and add a cool quotient to your dress. Also animal and jungle prints were a rage this time and are sure to become a rage off ramp too. Many abstract prints were also seen.
Bell and ruffled sleeves in blouses, dresses and tops were also seen a lot. Bell shaped sleeves were also a hit seen in international fashion weeks. They are definitely good for Indian summers.
Scarves and stoles were hit with many designers. Models sported them with both western and ethnic outfits. These definitely up the cool quotient of the look. So don't be afraid to sport them yourselves..!
Floral prints as usual were hugely popular on the ramp. Floral prints definitely give a very summery look any look. Even the men's outfits too had floral prints. Definitely a trend to look forward to.
Asymmetrical hemlines in outfits were seen on a large scale and definitely look cool
Jaipuri prints of lehariya and tie and die were seen on a lot of outfits and looked stunning.
Ruffles were seen on a lot of outfits too and are sure gonna be this season's flavour too.
