From International runways to closer home and into your wardrobes, this year is about a whole lot of personality play, says couturier Nivedita Saboo
BLUE EYES, HYPNOTISE
Well, it’s not just restricted to eyes only; go true blue with all your accents. Make-up, accessories, detailing and more, blue is doing the rounds and glancing from behind the scenes like a champion. Think under lapels for men’s tuxedos, bright blue edging and piping, under collar detailing, deep blue stone embellishments and you’ve got yourself a style statement piece
Bare it in style; for those who can! It’s all about baring your shoulders with halter tops, off the shoulders, crossfronts tops and the likes. A refreshing trend, the runway spotted everyone, from brides in lehengas paired with shoulder showing tops, bridesmaids wearing sarees with off-shoulder blouses to fashionistas and all the cool gals rubbing shoulders in style.
GIVE ME RED
A colour to adorn any time of the year, red and its tonal counterparts are some of the hot favourites to add to your wardrobe. From going all out to adding just a hint of this passionate hue to your attire, don’t shy away from painting the town red hot this year.
SHINY, DISCO BALL
Sport it any which way in 2016. From accessories for men like bow-ties, pocket squares to sequinned sherwanis and jackets, shoes, bags, hair accessories, make-up, dresses, lehengas, culottes, you name it, you got it, this year sequins and other shiny materials are having their moment in a big way!
