Simplicity and elegance – these are the details that always go hand in hand! It’s the time to flaunt a smart contemporary wardrobe. Rising above all the drama of heavy embroidery and bling hues, style today is about standing out with simplicity. Add a lot of plain suits to your closet like this beige and maroon suit that has a small zone of embroidery to gracefully highlight your slender shoulders and a plain flare that speaks comfort fashion. It’s easier to adapt plain outfits for different occasions. Add small diamond studs to keep it casual or indulge in heavy dazzling accessories to match up to the scintillating crowd at a grand event.
The eagerness with which women have embraced uneven and high-low hemlines indicates that asymmetric fashion is here to stay for 2018. Make the most of this trend and indulge in some medium priced outfits that are versatile enough to suit at varied places. This graceful silhouette works well with feminine hues and softer looks as in this flowing pink georgette suit. Whether it’s a work meeting, a casual day out or just a little celebration, don this bright ensemble with some tasselled accessories and you’re good to go!
Every season has its own set of wardrobe hues, but some colours fall into the zone of being eternally stylish.

This elegant black suit is indeed one of my favourites, firstly because I’ll probably never get over this hue. And secondly, blended with the sensuality of translucent sleeves and an overall mysterious look, it would definitely be my first choice for a cocktail party or a dinner date!
Pastels are here to Stay!

Flowers and Vintage
A fashion replay of the 70s and 80s has just begun! From flared bottoms to bell sleeves, polka dots and ruffled necklines; retro styles have been invading the latest collections of designers. A majestic flowing Anarkali suit with vivid flowers will give you an immense retro feel. Coordinate your look with winged eye-liner, red lip colour and a statement hair accessory to win the hearts of your audience at a wedding function. It’s rightly said, ‘old is gold!’
Translucent and sheer fabrics like net, tulle and tissue are another raging trend these days. Revamping traditional wear with a touch of sensuality and elegance, sheers indeed look classy.
