Trend report: February
Pastel hues Last year was all about millennial pink, but this year pastel/gelato hues like lemon sorbet, mint, blush pink, buttercup yellow, aquamarine, and especially lavender have taken over. Dress yourself in these ice cream shades and look delicious as well as fabulous. Be it a simple shirt, a jumper, or even a traditional sari, these colours look gorgeous on any complexion.   Check it out If there’s one print that’s going to rule this year’s fashion industry, it is checks. Although checks are mostly used in trousers or suits, this year it has graduated from that and moved on to shrugs and asymmetrical tops. And for those who are traditional, checkered saris can make a smart option, whether it is for a corporate event or family gatherings.       Fringes, tassels and balloon sleeves At the end of last year, we have seen the comeback of tassels, fringes and balloon sleeves in the fashion industry. And this year, it is here to say. From kameezes to dresses to blouses, and even accessories embellished with fringes and tassels can be spotted everywhere. And when it comes to sleeves, the puffier and flowy it is, the better, even if it is for a blouse to pair up with a sari.       Bringing back the 70s and 80s This year, sequins and glitter are not just a night time thing anymore, because the 70s are back, ladies. Now, it’s perfectly fine to wear your shiniest outfit for a daytime event, without any judgmental looks. And to make it even better for us, the 80’s satin dresses and camisole tops are fashionable to wear again. Hallelujah! Statement jewellery Your motto of the year should be - go big or go home! Statement earrings, sunglasses and bracelets, in of course bold colours which will stand out.  The bolder and bigger – the better. And to complete your look, you may go with a beret hat as well, the hottest hat of the year.
