For a stylish summer
Lakme Fashion Week trends from the recently-concluded Spring Summer 2018 edition are just waiting to take over our summer wardrobe. While lightweight feel-good fabrics like organza and tulle in pretty pastel shades dominated the runway at designers like Anita Dongre, Shyamal and Bhumika and Anamika Khanna, muted and neutral shades were the go-to choice for bridal wear that was seen at Kotwara, Jayanti Reddy and Ridhi Mehra.
Metallic colours had a big moment, as did statement belts. And if you thought only winter was for layering, designers Dhruv Kapoor and Nishka Lulla prove you wrong. We picked out 9 leading Lakme Fashion Week trends that will ensure you have a stylish summer, starting right now.
Lakme Fashion Week trends to adopt this summer:
Belts were styled with saris and dresses to accentuate the waist for a structured A-line look. Here, it's worn over a sari gown at De Belle.
Many designers like Anita Dongre and Payal Singhal added a dainty bow to the back of a blouse. As seen at Amoh by Jade.
Summer layers were all the rage — and no, we're not talking about jackets or trench coats. We're talking about wearing your dress on top of a shirt. Here, Dhruv Kapoor styles a sequinned dress over a striped shirt with sheer cuffs and a ruffled neck.
Whether it was Rara Avis' shimmering dress perfect for a brunch date or Tarun Tahiliani's golden gown ideal for a reception, metallic hues were omnipresent, proving that this colour can work for day occasions too. Here, the model wears a metallic top over a shirt dress. As seen at Amrich.
This summer, replace your heavy denims with lightweight fabrics like organza for an easy-breezy vibe. As seen at Amrich.
Experiment with your sari and lehenga and pair it with a shirt for a contemporary look. And if anyone questions your style, point them towards Padmaja, Ridhi Mehra and SVA. Here, a shirt is worn with a sari at Padmaja.
This summer is all about lightweight fabrics in pastel shades, which is why tulle skirts were ruling the runway at a multitude of designers like Anita Dongre, Payal Singhal, Kotwara and Shyamal and Bhumika. Here, Anita Dongre styles it with a deep v-neck blouse and a jacket.
Vibrant colours like vermilion, fuchsia and tangerine are being replaced with muted and neutral tones like white, off-white and pastel shades. Here, Karisma Kapoor stuns in a pastel green and pink lehenga choli set.
