Lakme Fashion Week just went by, leaving us all puzzled with questions like what colours should we choose our summer lehengas to be? Or what kind of ethnic dresses can we expect on the store rails. It’s always overwhelming with so many designers to watch for, how do we actually catch the trend? This is something which we all understand when you don’t come from a Fashion background, there’s no need of knowing it all. You just want to know about the best. So I’ve made your life easier by putting on the best Lakme Fashion Week SS’19 trends which caught my eye. I’m sure you will feel the same way about it.
Top Row both Anushree Reddy. Bottom Row – Manoj Agarwal and Anita Dongre.
What do I love the most about these lehengas? The summery colours of it. Designers have decided to keep the bright tones to a mute and bring the muted tones back. Lehangas with embroidery, ruffles and pleats, I love them all. Anushree Reddy clearly stole the show with her old school yet divine-in-design lehangas.
Top Row – Shriya Som and Shantanu and Nikhil. Bottom row – Rohit Bal and Raghavendra Rathore.
We love a good flair dress or a floor length gown. Clearly this trend is one that our designers are not ready to let go of. We should all take inspiration from this for our upcoming wedding season. While everybody has kept the flow on, Raghavendra Rathore keeps it simple with a minimal move of fabric. But take notes from the smart styling, you can wear a bustier blouse with a long jacket for more details and less show of skin, worn along with a high waist skirt.
TOP AND PANTS
Top Row – Payal Singhal and Punit Balana. Bottom Row – Anita Dongre Grassroot and Latha.
Pant or skirt, kurta or top, it’s comfortable both ways and easily pairable with other clothes too. What do I love about these clothes? I love the colour bold combination by Payal Singhal, and Punit Balana’s master mind by reversing the prints on your kurta and sharara, and keeping the dupatta simple, who thought print on sharara could look so stunning? Anita Dongre’s ivory on ivory pairing gives me the calm chic feel I need this summer. Latha’s simple pairing of a skirt and top in a mustard yellow is an easy pick for any girl.
I love the fact that designers keep breezy on mind when they think of their summer collection, because summer weddings can get hard on us sometimes and new thoughts are always welcome. Think organza, soft silk, chiffon and crotchet details when you shop for your next Indian wear. All of these fabrics have great breathability and comfort feel to them. Which is your favourite? Let me know!
