Throughout the globe, the onset of autumn symbolizes the beginning of the festive season, which continues to the New Year. However, nowhere is the autumn calendar as jam packed as the Indian calendar. The diversity of India ensures celebration across every corner of the country. This is also the perfect time for shopping and dressing up in all the latest fashion trends. Let us peek through what is hot this festive season:
Colors of the season
Indian Fashion shows some major color trends. The colors for this season are the range of solar, incandescent and spicy. Vivid and daring colors are getting in vogue, which can be splashes of various colors of macaw, shades of green, orange of Tibetan monks, bushy browns, yawning blues and the entire spectrum of reds, purples, champagne pink and salmon pinks grace this festive season. Burnt sienna seems to be the color for the upcoming Diwali Festival.
Fabrics this festive season
Since autumn is just the onset of winter; the summer hues and light breathable fabrics still has sustainability. The latest fashion trends of India incorporate plenty of satin, two-tone chiffons, georgettes, metallic crepe jacquards and crochet lace. Silk remains the timeless quality material considered above fashion.
Latest fashion trends in India splits into three streams: – the ethnic look, fusion look and the western look. Let us briefly look at the rage of the season in each:
Ethnic and traditional look highlights the Indian heritage with a modern twist while retaining its flavors. Super bright-multicolored lehengas are in with heavy embroidery or with layering especially of crinkled fabrics. Neon colors in saris and churidars are on. The Anarkalis’ fervor continues but the length has shortened and the flare has shrunk. Stretch metallic and foil churidars has become the new rage. For saris, the blouses have become shorter with incut sleeves and loads of work in the back. Saris itself have minimal embroidery.
#The Fusion Look
The second and the most popular trend is the fusion look. Here, outfits stem from western influences but draw heavily from Indian textile style and heritage. Ultimately, it reflects a modern comfortable look and feel. Hip hugging lehengas with flare right until the bottom accompanied with short blouses and net dupattas are available from light party wears to heavy ones more suitable for wedding functions. Mirrored skirts and sexy cholis in rainbow colors are great alternatives. Latest fashion is crush on crop tops, which are combined with dhoti pants, silhouettes, palazzos etc. Silk pants and Sherwani style jackets are making quite a wave. Sari has taken a new avatar here as sari gowns which with beautiful embellishments and embroideries lend a very feminine look.
The third stream is the completely western look, which remains popular with the young generation but is generally not preferred for wearing on joyful events but commands a great niche for casual clothing. Crop tops, pants and trousers with sleek cuts, skirts and many silhouettes are all over the place. Printed, metallic, striped, color-blocked or embellished pants are creating quite a wave.
The festival fashion is all about maintaining the aesthetic appeal and flaunting the rich cultural heritage in the modern cocoon.
