New year, new wardrobe. Right? Well if there’s one thing we know about the Luxemi girl, it’s this — she takes her ‘out with the old, in with the new’ fashion maxim very seriously. After all, no one wants to be tagged as the one whose sartorial picks are “so last year”! So we’ve put together the ultimate guide of the trends you need to say a very warm (and chic, of course) hello to in 2014!
TREND: Pink Parade
Pretty pink has seamlessly transitioned from 2013 and 2014 and will continue ruling the color chart. The trick, this year, is to sport it without looking too Legally Blonde. Avoid an overly girly vibe and juxtapose it with some strong, statement making accessories.
TREND: Tribal Touch
Right from Mumbai to Milan, tribal influences made appearances (and not a fleeting one, mind you) on many a runway. As for us, we’ve always maintained that boho-glam is a fashion keyword to swear by.
TREND: Pastel Play
We are candy crushing this season. Scoops of buttercup-yellow, lilac, pistachio, blush pink, powder blue and every other possible sorbet shade are ruling the color wheel — so why shouldn’t your wardrobe join in the sugar rush?
Luxemi picks: Our Yellow and Orange Geometric Print Saree with Crystal Work, Net Saree with Buttas and Sequins and Shimmer Georgette “Angel” Lehenga Saree boast of ladylike poise and elan.
TREND: Print Party
Prints can never really go off the style radar, considering that they are intrinsic wardrobe staples. And fashion biggies have given their vote to pop art inspired, candid prints this season. You’d be wise to stock up on them.
Luxemi picks: Our Crystal And Lace Digital Print Saree, Pink Peony Printed Saree and Digital Print Saree with Sequined Blouse by Satya Paul pack in a powerful printed punch.
TREND: Metal Mania
Who says that metallic hues are meant only for the night? This year, take your metallic beauties out for a spin even in the AM. No-holds-barred is definitely the way to be!
Luxemi picks: This Red Net Saree With Metallic Sequins by Satya Paul will look just as stunning at an afternoon mehndi event as it will at an after hours cocktail gala.
So here’s wishing you ladies a super stylish and successful 2014. Cheers!
