Keeping up with Fashion: Man evolves with time and so does the way he thinks and consequently his clothing as well. An engineer, an air hostess, a waitress, a model, a student writing your CAT 2018 – Whether or not you’re a fashion enthusiast, your fashion sense is a very important factor that defines you. Here are a few latest trends that you should know about.
Starting with fashion in our own country, with palazzos still in the running, the newest trend in the market is the “dhoti pants”. Celebrities like Mira Rajput Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, and Kriti Sanon can show you how to work these comfortable yet stylish pants. It best goes with crop blouses or maybe you can pair it up a kurta with a center slit. Taking it one step further, one could even use the concept on saree! Crop tops have been around for quite a long time, but it’s time to move on. After cold shoulders, the youth these days prefer more off-shoulder tops. Pink seems to be the color of the season. Women, you wouldn’t want to miss out on these! Jumpsuits seem to still be alive in the market.
Pedal-pusher pants are the talk of the town in the trousers section. Too long to be Bermuda shorts and too short to be pants, they were originally invented in the 1960s for cyclists. Back with a bang, these trousers come in a variety of colors. Paired with a white top and some ankle shoes, these would make a good casual outfit. In case of parties, you could sport a tank top or a spaghetti with them. When it comes to footwear, boots or high-heeled shoes aren’t the “in” thing right now; for some reason unknown to me as well, crocs are hitting the markets in full swing. Quite a shocker isn’t it? Probably more than your JEE Advanced Results! Famous designers are now introducing platform crocs!
Let’s not leave the men behind. There are a lot number of fashion revolutions that took place in the men’s section as well. If you thought men couldn’t pull off fashionable clothes as well as women, well guess you were wrong! The ‘rompers’ took the fashion industry by storm! An increasing number of floral printed clothing seems to be moving in the market. Vertical stripes are also one of the ‘in’ designs. Recently though loose fitting and relaxed styles, be it on coats, hoodies or trousers have taken to the market. These comfortable clothes are very trendy as well. Cuban collars are also gaining worldwide popularity.
Retro is back! This calls for the revival of the bell bottom pants! Roll necks after staying quiet for a long period are also back into the picture. Big brands like Adidas and Tommy Hilfiger have revisited the old times. In the formals section, colored tailored suits are dominating the fashion industry. And by ‘colored’ I mean any color, like blue, burgundy and even pink! Celebrities like Mark Ronson can teach one how to wear these! These are just a few trends that I’ve mentioned above. Whatever it may be, the fashion industry is certainly going through a revolutionary phase with not only women’s but men’s fashion expanding as well.
