    The new season beckons you to reinvent your style. It’s time to shrug off all your dull clothes and upgrade your wardrobe with new and fresh looks that are dominating at the moment. So, get a head start on revamping your closet by checking out our list of must-haves in your closet this season.

    Go Colourful

    Spring or summer, it is all about colours and they need to reflect in your style too. Step out of your safe sartorial zone, and let the new season give you the opportunity to go wild with colours – hot pink, slime green, bold neons, orange, red are the colours to wear. Be it a solid suit, comfy pants, tops and blouses, don’t feel shy to embrace the colours.

    When In Doubt, Wear Denim

    Top to toe, coats to shoes to handbags, the timeless Denim trend is the season’s darling and is here to stay. The bleached, tie-dyed and ripped pants have made the usual denim more interesting over time. The most trending denim styles currently are bohemian-inspired wide-leg jeans, boot cut jeans and the straight leg light wash jeans.

    Get Comfortable With Ruching

    The hallmark trend of the 80s is back in style this season. With major brands and designers all falling in love with ruching, the gathered fabric detail style is showing up everywhere right from dresses, skirts, tops, jackets to boots and it is high time you invest in some ruching as well, as this trend is here to stay for long.

    Walk On The Wild Side

    Showing up more unexpectedly all of winter, animal prints have found their way up in this year’s fashion trend and are definitely making it through the current season in style as well. Glam up in a suit or trouser with classic leopard print or snakeskin or deer hide or crocodile or zebra prints. The versatile pattern is dominating even the footwear styles.

    Fancy Fishnets

    The fishnet trend is taking the fashion industry by storm and is certainly a style to explore. Reimagined and rehashed by several designers, fishnet enjoyed some major moments at all spring/summer runways. You can choose from a variety of options like fishnet tops, skirts, dresses and even shoes and effortlessly make some stunning fashion statements.

    Play With Plaid

    While many new trends have hit the market, some classic timeless trends like plaid are here to stay. Mix and match and experiment with the variety of styles and cuts available in the market. Chequered pants are a huge thing and sure to make an impact if you style them with heavy boots and casual solid tees.

    Rock The Shorts

    The one trend that’s quite hot right now is bike shorts. Once considered a taboo in the fashion world, this piece of clothing became quite a rage at the runways this season and is a definite must-have to make chic style statements. Prada, Stella McCartney, Rejina Pyo and other designer wear proudly displayed the short trend in their collections, making bike shorts the new fashion sensation. Pair them with tops, jackets or tailored suits to make a stunning style statement.

    Flower Power

    Florals are a big hit this season, so make sure they become an essential part of your wardrobe. Make it big, make it colourful, make it magnificent. May it be dresses, pants, shoes or skirts, match it up with the blooming vibe of floral love.

    Dazzle In White

    Wear them in accessories or wear them top to toe, whites are the must-have this year. Clubbing whites with colours will also lift up the mood. White jackets, white hand bags and long white dresses will keep you going all through the season in classic style.

    Be The Boss In Pantsuits

    Power suits aka pantsuits are undoubtedly the future of fashion. The fashion runways too saw a slew of pantsuits in a variety of styles and colours – wide-cut, concealing, double-breasted, shoulder-padded suits, making them a must-have this season. A symbol of authority and elegance, solid pant suits are not only perfect for work wear but can effortlessly be added to your party wardrobe as well.

    Opt For Utility

    The utilitarian fashion is arguably the season’s biggest trend. This military-inspired trend dominated most of the catwalks with brands like Givenchy, Fendi, Loewe, Hermès, Sies Marjan and others, showing their love in abundance to this latest hot fashion favourite. This reinvented trend of 70s embraces minimalism providing a perfect combination of rugged, comfort and refined look. Combat trousers, utilitarian jackets, shorts, boiler suits, or cropped pants, there are plenty of varieties to lay your hands on.
