The New Year is round the corner. Yet, we still have a month to go. So, there’s time to make a fashion statement through 2014 trends.
Color of 2014
Radiant orchid. This is a mystical purple shade that complements all skin tones. A wardrobe must-have this season. The color has a rosy undertone that brightens up the skin. It is for both genders.
Next comes dazzling blue, along with pale lavender, subtle yellow, and baby blue.
Love animals? Wear them! Well, not what you are thinking. Wear animal prints. Delicate lace combined with woolens is hot this season, so are radical prints.
Welcome palazzos and crop tops
Skinny jeans were not so hot this year. Palazzo pants ruled the roost. They are chic and make you look slimmer. Designers are offering fabric varieties in these pants and ‘kalidaar’ variants. However, with winter approaching, skinny jeans have a chance for comeback. Till the freeze sets in, enjoy your palazzos.
Dare to bare? Get some sexy crop tops. Team them with a jacket or blazer. Bolero tops with asymmetric hemlines are in.
The Anarkali phase has gone, so have heavy sarees
Girls, fold your Anarkalis and stack them in the closet. This had been one of the hottest trends of 2013-14. Now, the trend is of straight silhouettes and fitted kurtas. The time has come to show your curves that were hidden between those flaring Anarkalis.
Ladies who had stopped their workouts, thinking they would hide behind their Anarkalis must now gear up again. Flatten those abs and tone your body. Fitted fashion is back.
Those weighty and heavily embellished sarees that threw a challenge to wear and carry off are finally out this season. Pre-stitched sarees in textured fabrics are in vogue. Dare to wear a T-shirt instead of a blouse? A few mainstream designers like Payal Khandwala, Masaba, and Sabyasachi Mukherjee have dared to popularize this idea.
Minnies go backseat
Stack your miniskirts. Bring out your knee-length skirts, pencil skirt, and ankle-length skirts.
Pleads are trendy. They can be on your skirt, LBD, or top. They add a dash of femininity to your ensemble.
Short hair styles are hot this season
Several Bollywood beauties have chopped their hair and gone short. Wide swept-up hairdos are sizzling. For a simple look, choose braided styles. Short pixie cuts are hot. Try any short new hairstyle, but remember that it must flatter your face.
Dazzle with jewelry
Indian fashion is incomplete without jewelry. With gold prices slashing you can fulfill your ‘golden’ dreams and adorn your body with some exquisite designs. If gold is not your forte, then choose artificial jewelry pieces. They are selling like hot cakes.
The Indian fashion industry is no longer in its infancy. Today, it has the potential to stun the world through its intricate creativity and fine fabrics.
One thing totally out of style this season is caffeine addiction. So, girls, stay away from getting a ‘kick’ from that cuppa. The cold months are approaching and coffee lovers may want to indulge. Well, indulge, but don’t get addicted. It is so out of fashion.
Fashion is not just about clothes; it is also about style, attitude, and deportment. It is about how you present yourselves.
