The 6 Best Summer 2018 Fashion Trends

As we usher in the new fashion season, it’s only natural that our minds should turn to the trends of this year. As the year moves on, so does the style of 2018, and everything from the jeans we should be wearing to the accessories we should be styling gets an update.

 

To make sure you’re always in style, check out these top 5 picks from the upcoming Summer fashion trends – and always remember to stay up to date on how to look after your clothes (nothing ruins new clothing like not knowing how to get rid of pen stains, especially with the pastel trend).

Pretty in Pastel

Pastel tones started making a comeback in the form of colourful hair dyes (think Kim Kardashian’s pastel pink she rocked just a month ago) and dresses and have now been seen up and down runways worldwide. From gorgeous strawberry shades to mint greens to sunny, muted yellows, pastel should certainly be your go-to colour trend this year.

Talk About Trench Coats

Perfect for the heavy rainfall we’re about to see, trench coats were the loves of many designers this season. With the likes of Maison Margiela and Balenciaga putting their own twists on this classic, it’s time to see what style you like best. Why not combine two trends and opt for a pastel-toned trench?

Purple Power

Following Pantone’s announcement that the colour of 2018 is ultra-violet, it’s not too surprising that the catwalks were transformed into seas of purple for Spring/Summer. Rich and luxurious, it’s a colour that will certainly have an impact and looks stunning with black hair.

Crazy for Cowboy Boots

Cowboy boots have once again been spotted walking the runways around the world. Calvin Klein, Givenchy, Maison Margiela; these are just a few of the designers who saddled up to ride the Western theme this year. They’re also great for walking through rain (as long as you look after them properly with water-proof coatings) so will be both stylish and practical this season!

Straight-Cut Jeans

It’s time to ditch the skinny’s and keep the flares buried in the back of the wardrobe as straight-cut begins to take over the jeans scene. Paired with fitted, figure-hugging tops and a pair of stylish trainers, you’ll be nailing the go-to casual look of the season.

Jumpsuits Forever

The jumpsuit is a timeless piece; easy to wear and can be styled for a casual day outfit or a formal evening look, it’s about time it made a big comeback. Spotted at Apiece Apart, Gucci and Tod’s to name but a few, the jumpsuit was shown off left, right and center this year.

Staying on trend is important for any fashionable man or woman, so keeping on top of what’s hot on the catwalk with each passing season is vital. See how you can update your wardrobe and remember to brush up on clothing care, learning how to remove pen stains from clothes and keep your outfits looking fresh.

Wear T shirts with a style

T-shirts have been every girl’s wardrobe staple at some point of time. However, there is no need to always wear them the same, old way. Tee shirts, even the most basic ones can look extremely smart if worn in different ways and teamed up with the right accessories and right pieces of clothing. With a lot of options to take your pick from, wouldn’t it be really nice if you had some kind of a T-shirt styling cheat sheet? Read on below to find some interesting ideas to wear your T-shirts stylishly.

With summer approaching soon, it is high time restock on some variously coloured and patterned tee shirts and go online shopping.

Team up your tee with a Summer dress

If you have a summer dress that has a rather plunging neckline appropriate only for parties, you can put a Tee shirt to use. Wear a tee shirt beneath to act as an inner beneath the dress. The tee would not only cover up but also add a stylish streak to your regular summer dress.

Trousers with tee shirts

We usually tend to wear Tee shirts with jeans but many tees look flattering even with semi-formal trousers. You can tuck the tee in the trousers and add a belt to look really smart especially, with the high waist ones.Comfortable, platform heels look the best for office wear.

Add a scarf

Adding a scarf is the simplest way to revamp any plain tee shirt that is lying idle in your closet. A scarf instantly adds some colour and definition.

Wear beneath blazers

You can make a single Black blazer look different each time you pair it up with a different coloured or patterned tee shirt. Adding accessories like scarves, chunky neck pieces etc is another option. If you are planning to wear this combo for office, make sure you avoid anything with Letters or messages that have pun-intended.

Skirts with Tee shirts

Pair up tee shirts with mini or mid length skirts. Who said tee shirts are for tomboys? Add a pretty neck piece or a scarf with smart heels and you would look very cute and feminine. You may or may not add a pair of stockings with this beautiful combo. Sport the look with smart heels or stilettos.

Tee shirts with Palazzo

Nothing beats the cool quotient of pairing up a graphic tee with a flared Palazzo.Do not forget to add a wide belt or a belt bag for that additional style factor.

Tee with Shorts

A funky and colourful tee shirt looks uber cool when paired up with a pair of shorts. Blue denim shorts or White, they never fail to make an impact. Tuck in your tee shirt snugly into the shorts and do not forget the sporty looking shoes and cute socks.

So, with these ideas, we are pretty sure that you shall be able to bring in a fresh spin to the most basic wardrobe item, ever!

The Latest Jewelry Trends For 2017

Staying on top of fashion trends is the only way to make sure that you don’t fall out of style. Knowing what’s in and what’s out can help you avoid making any embarrassing fashion faux pa’s but a lot of people forget about the smaller details. Accessories are what make or break an outfit so if you get them wrong you can ruin a perfectly good outfit in seconds. One trend that people often neglect is jewelry. There are some pieces that will always be in style but don’t fall into the trap of thinking that this is true of all of it. Certain things that might have been fashionable last year are completely out by now so you have to be careful. If you aren’t up to date, have a look at these recent jewelry trends.

Rose Gold

Rose gold has been a part of the fashion world for a while but at the moment, the color is very popular when it comes to jewelry. It’s a great way to introduce some pretty pink things into your outfit without going overboard with incredibly bright shades of pink on your clothes that might be a bit too much. It’s also a popular choice for lots of other accessories so match your new rose gold earrings with a phone case or a necklace to top off the look. It’s also becoming a popular choice for wedding rings because it’s more interesting than standard gold.

Bold Necklaces

The past few years have seen a massive focus on smaller, choker style necklaces but that’s starting to change this season. Instead, people are going for much larger, bold necklaces that really make a statement. Thick chains with a large stone on are much more fashionable than a thin, shorter necklace. Anything that is art deco inspired is especially good as this is what most of the people in the industry are choosing.

Large Earrings

The view that bigger is better is not just confined to necklaces, it’s also directing the style of earrings that people are wearing this year. Nobody is wearing small studs at the moment, they’re going for huge earrings instead. Anything that uses interesting shapes and materials is a winner.

Single Earrings

As well as big earrings, people are also deciding to wear just the one. It’s a pretty out there move, but if you choose the right style, it can really work. If you’re going to go for the single earring look, make sure it’s something oversized that makes it clear that it’s a choice. If you wear a single small earring, people will just think one has fallen out.

Minerals

Uncut minerals used to be something that people had as an ornament on the shelf but nowadays they’re being used for jewelry as well. Bold necklaces with large sections of uncut mineral on then are really in style at the moment. Healing crystals have also made a big impact at some fashion shows recently.

Crucifixes

The crucifix is a jewelry item that’s always coming in and out of fashion for both men and women. It hasn’t been in for a few years but now it’s back. The traditional crucifix won’t quite cut it though. Find something a bit bigger with plenty of color on it and you’re sure to impress.

 

 

 

 

Don’t Miss These Amazing Spring 2017 Fashion Trends – Suzy Walsh

As a fashion enthusiast, you probably keep an eye on changing seasonal trends. Fashion is not just about the top brands, but it is also about how you interpret ideas for your personal style. In this special post, we will talk about the best spring 2017 trends. These are ideas that made headlines during the four spring fashion weeks and are absolutely perfect for any fashion-conscious girl. We will also add a few tips on how you can make the most of these ideas.

Think pink: One of the hottest colour palettes of spring is pink! From the mellow pinks to hot fuchsias, pink made a nice comeback to the runway, and we love the amazing mix of shades. You can try pastel pink dresses or bright outfits for casual brunches – there’s enough for everyone. For a few ideas, check the collections of Balenciaga and Valentino among others.

The classic floral girl: Floral prints for spring can be boring, but not this time. A lot of designers and fashion houses, including names like Balenciaga and Chloé, worked with floral in a different way, adding a more retro twist of the 70s. While bright colours were pretty evident, we think that simple floral outfits can make a mark any day. This is more like a classic style, and the good thing is you will find plenty of options in budget on online stores.

More jumpsuits: If you are tall and have a body to flaunt, jumpsuits can be your staple for casual clothing. Jumpsuits look great for any occasion, as long as you choose the right colour. You can find some amazing simple jumpsuit ideas in the shows of Hermès and Vanessa Seward. There were no big hints, but it was more about minimalism, which works best when you are looking for something comfortable yet appealing.

Stripes with a difference: Spring 2016 had a lot of striped looks, but those were bold and contrasting stripes. Come 2017, we will see a lot of functional and more wearable stripes that seem to follow no fixed lines. This is more like origami of lines, often inspired from seaside and office stripes. If you are fond of simple trends, we presume that this should be your singular pick of the entire list. To know more about this idea, take a look at the collections of Chloé and Sonia Rykiel.

Hoodies are here: Hooded outfits are usually reserved for fall, but there’s no harm in trying new things after all. Top shows of Balenciaga and Paco Rabanne featured hoodies with a difference for spring 2017. Instead of regular sweatshirts, hoodies worked best as an addition to regular outfits meant for spring.

Hope you liked this post and have made your shopping list. For more, keep following this amazing blog.

What’s New in 2017- Luxury Brands Offer Hot Discounts.. Check This Out To Know More..

With the fast increasing economy driving the upward trend of spending habits and capacity, on fashion in particular, we indians have become more aspirational ever since we started becoming brand conscious. But access to luxury labels has remained limited to only a few. Many can’t afford it while others residing in non-metro cities don’t have access to stores by such brands. Priya Lakhanpal from Gurgaon has founded The Best Price Show (TBPS) to facilitate the pockets of all such aspirational consumers with luxury labels through 16 countrywide pop-up store festivals in the coming year.

“When it comes to shopping, most Indians love to strike a hard bargain and prefer to shop where they can negotiate a good discount on a product or service. The upmarket labels being offered at discount upto 75% will definitely be something a lot us have been secretly wishing for,” ends Priya with a laugh.

With Delhi and Mumbai, TBPS also plans to penetrate Jaipur, Indore, Ahmedabad, Chennai, Chandigarh, Ludhiana, Bangalore, Pune and Hyderabad among other cities since spending on fashion has spread much beyond just tier 1 cities into tier 2 and 3 cities as well. The elite class of our country is expected to grow from current 10 million to 26 million households by 2025. And according to the Top of the Pyramid 2015 report by Kotak Wealth Management, 44 percent of India’s multi-millionaires live outside metros. But lack of efficient retail spaces and low ROI values in non-metro regions discourage luxury labels to set up infrastructure there. TBPS, through its innovative model of “bridge to luxury” will help facilitate both the brands with access to a ready customer base as well bring these labels within buying capacity of consumers from such regions. “We understand that demand is primarily driven by price. Hence, I am sure our exhibitions will be in demand in non-metros as well,” shares a confident Priya.

In a scenario where retail ventures lead to a high value to be paid for stock holding and wastage, TBPS promises to offer them a new revenue stream by helping liquidate their excess stock which they have to clear off the shelves to give space to the new season’s collection, offering it on a discount with a “get it while it lasts” urgency. Along with ethnic haute couture, the pop-up stores will also feature other luxury products as well as pret culture as we have already begun to see the launch of ready-to-wear labels by designers of the likes of Tarun Tahiliani, Anita Dongre, Manish Arora as they eye India’s growing generation of young, successful and fashion-conscious millennials.

Since all luxury brands pamper their customers with an overall experience of the look and feel of the apparels coupled with an inviting store ambience, buying from such brands is a part of that experience. TBPS will allow them to communicate the brand’s promise to their customers through the use of a unique and tech-enabled physical environment to create an immersive shopping experience suited to the image of such labels. The shows will be a host to Virtual Reality shopping experience, personal styling recommendation from brands in addition to trial rooms, a cafe cum lounge area and high-tech kids’ play area.

Leveraging on her experience in luxury fashion and success in her earlier venture Hunkydori Styles Pvt. Ltd, Priya looks forward to open the door of TBPS in the capital for its first one day show “Store 1 – New Delhi” on 29th April 2017.

About the company: Founded in August 2016, The Best Price Show (TBPS) is a subsidiary brand of Hunkydori Styles Pvt. Ltd. owned by Priya Lakhanpal. The company currently has its head office in Gurgaon. For more information, visit www.thebestpriceshow.com.

Manyavar appoints ace cricketer Virat Kohli as its official brand ambassador

Manyavar, India’s leading brand in men’s ethnic wear, announced the appointment of cricket icon Virat Kohli as the official ambassador for the brand. Youth icon Kohli will now feature in all the print and electronic media campaigns of the company for the next two years.

Virat Kohli is one of the biggest names in Indian sports – carrying the respect of the country to the world. Kohli is a hero on and off the field who connects with Indian youth and has earned accolades and respect through his hard work and brilliant performance- a philosophy which the brand Manyavar stands for!

Speaking about the association, Mr. Ajay Modi, Director, Manyavar said, “We are delighted to have Virat as the ambassador for our brand Manyavar. He is a role model for the youth and the perfect fit for what the brand is trying to convey. Also, Virat has strong national appeal and he is the most relatable figure for the audience that Manyavar is targeting. We look forward to the partnership and are confident that this will be a mutually rewarding association.”


Virat will be seen in the new ad campaign ‘Aadha-Aadha’, that highlights that the essence of marriage all is about sharing, and this should start right from the expense of the wedding function. The commercial features Virat as a groom talking about how wedding is an expensive affair and everything needs to be done in style, the expense will however be shared between the bride’s and the groom’s sides. The ad questions the age-old concept that wedding functions should be organized and financed by the bride’s family only.
