Fashion trends are like migratory birds – they come and go. Instead of being intimidated by trends or becoming trend addicts, we should bend the trends to suit our lifestyles, preferences and body shapes.
What are the fashion trends we can play with in Winter 2017?
Fashion trend winter 2017 tickled pink
Did you love fairy floss as a little girl? Well then, Winter 2017 is your season. Not just fairy floss but the entire pink palette – baby pink, coral, fuchsia, old rose – is ruling this season. Are you one of those who hide beneath layers of blacks and greys every winter? Liven up your winter wardrobe this year with a pink pashmina. Infuse new life into your slightly jaded LBD with a statement pink handbeaded clutch.
Ever since Gucci put artisanal embroidery on bags and shoes, everything has gone crafty. Embroidery this season is rough and textured. It is a melange of bits and pieces patched together.
Unleash the wild side:
Anything animal is on trend. The tables have turned. From leopard printed scarves to zebra striped clutch bags, the animal kingdom is ruling mankind.
Get ready for some old world Hollywood charm. Lace, velvet and faux fur abound. I am sceptical about how many of us can carry velvet clothes head to toe, but most of us can get our fashion quotient right with a black velour clutch bag encrusted with diamantes’.
Ruffles and layers are making waves this season. Wear feminine blouses with ruffled and fluted sleeves. Pair them with frothy lace skirts in pink tones.
Mix the mismatched:
Think outside the box this season. Push the boundaries and bend the rules. Wear socks over tights, oversized puffas and bomber jackets over slip dresses and head scarves with caps.
If pink is not your poison, opt for greenery, fire engine red, canary yellow and deep purple.
