All that glitters this season is ….. worth wearing! I don’t just mean the sequinned party dresses, but the shiny fabrics and textures! They glitter and sparkle in just the right amount to bring some holiday cheer to winter wardrobes.
The metallic finish pieces I’ve seen recently in stores look HOT (I’ve written about it earlier)! If I had an occasion or more to wear them, I’d have at least a few such in my closet by now! I’m almost feeling bad I don’t. 🙁
Here’s the first part of my list of things that shine! What’s your favourite?
Rajat Tangri (LFW W/F 2012)
Chic Tip: Accessorise with a dull-finish bag or statement jewellery.
Calvin Klein Jeans
Chic Tip: Metallic finish blouses look hot when worn with dark slim or skinny pants.
Chic Tip: A shiny skirt goes well with printed blouses or fitted tees. Wear with heels for a killer party look.
Chic Tip: Sexy halter top, peek-a-boo lace blouse, or a corset—let the mercury rise!
Calvin Klein Jeans
Collection theme: Debarun’s interpretation of divinity and the omnipresent Almighty.
Inspirations: Iznik tiles of Turkey for the texturing and embellishments.
What to expect: Fusion Indian silhouettes (flared, layered and dhoti-inspired skirts) and saris for women. Sherwarni with flair and shirt kurtas for men.
- Cobalt blue mixed with beige- loved the combination!
- Layering with prints, embellishments and accessories.
- High collared necklines
Watch out for: Mix of print and embellishments and playing with textures. If you’re Bollywood inclined, you’d be happy to see Richa Chadha as the showstopper.
Collection theme: Retro
What to expect: Geometric printed cocktail saris, playful tunics, fluid dresses and gowns. I’m liking the idea of a chessboard print on an embellished gown (see below). Maybe gowns will be fun after this.
- Geometric shapes
- Colour blocking of bright hues like electric blue, bright yellow and shades of green offset against the tints of black, white and grey.
- Retro-inspired prints (from the 1970s and 80s)
Watch out for: The Indian alphabet as embellishments- a very desi twist!
