SHEER AND TRANSLUCENT FABRICS
Get ready to allure and entice as the fashion trends this year tends to get a little revealing. You could use the heat and sun as an excuse to flaunt that svelte figure of yours. Stick to sheer and translucent fabrics to keep you cool and fashionable. Soft, body hugging and feminine fabrics like georgette, chiffon, net and satin brasso are popular this season.
JEWEL ENCRUSTED CLOTHING
This season doesn’t restrict jewels to just jewellery and accessories but has found its way to adorn outfits and items of clothing. It’s not the first time that bejewelled outfits have been popular but they are back this year with a brighter, bolder and more elegant look. This time around the pieces are not just embellished with jewels but also with a wide variety of trims like shells, fabrics, expensive pearls, stunning and unique beads, threads, ribbons, lurex, etc. The idea is to create a luxurious and exotic look with a somewhat understated glamorous touch.

The eternally appealing vintage trends and style is back. Make sure to combine with latest contemporary trends to achieve that dreamy and graceful effect. The right mix of vintage grace and romance with modern and urbane chic is the perfect look of this season. Add a few retro pieces to your wardrobe and create a unique look. Revisit the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s and be a part of the REVIVAL CULTURE.
