There are three kinds of trends – one that comes and takes over the entire planet before you know it and one that dies the very next day it came into existence. And then there is the one that’s somewhere in the middle; the world is all about it in but unfortunately it didn’t get as popular among the Indian masses.
So, here is a list of 5 fashion trends that, for some reason, didn’t work out in India and ways to make it work.
1. Mixed Patterns
There is thin line between being a fashion faux-pas and being trendy when it comes to wearing mixed patterns. This trend started in the year 2013 and it managed to survive till date. It can look fun and eccentric if you choose the right patterns and accessorize it right. Sonam Kapoor carried it off wonderfully well in her movie, Khubsoorat, last year. But quiet surprisingly, only of a few of us got the hang of it. It’s a very difficult look to pull off. You can either look like Sarah Jessica Parker in it or you can’t.
ger coats are when you wear a wee bit oversized tailored coat or blazer just draped over your shoulders but don’t put your hands through the arm hole. It has a very classy-meets cool vibe but frankly it’s not very comfortable to carry. This winter trend is utterly useless yet so chic. We have seen plenty of international fashion bloggers and celebrities like Elle Macpherson, Nina Garcia, Victoria Beckham sporting this look but not many Indians. So, if you’re all in for the modern and sporty look, here is how you can pull it off.
Everyone goes through that “goth” phase at least once in their lives; a time when you feel rebellious and impulsive. It’s just a bit harder to embrace your darker side here in India with all the remarks and stares the aunties. I can guarantee that most of you chose to wear all black during this phase. Let me tell you, only wearing black does NOT make you goth. We’ll tell you how to do it the right way; you can be a bad ass and look glamourous at the same time. Don’t be afraid to take it up notch higher. Let the grandma’s glare, who cares? We know the Olsen sisters don’t!
4. Non-basic Belts
There is one thing that I think most us would agree on, belts are the most boring piece of accessory. Luck for us, the non-traditional belts are climbing the charts of being the ‘It’ piece this season. This can give a very edgy look to your daily outfit. Work it up like The Man Repeller something as low-key as a rope or jazz it up like Jenna Lyon adding fringes to it. Stay perfectly on trend and find new and innovative ways to give attention to your waistline this summer, like we did.
Dungarees have been a rage for a while now; they are particularly big this spring/summer. After the crop top revolution, it’s dungarees that are keeping the 90’s revival going. Anyone with even half an eye on the current trends will have seen pictures of Alexa Chung, Taylor swift, Elizabeth Olsen and many more in a pair of dungarees. It has a more relaxed look than the jumpsuits. It’s good for when you want to get a casual look but don’t want to wear something as mainstream as a summer dress. This trend is not as big in India yet, but it won’t be long before it does. Be the first among your friends and try the look this season.
