Mumbai: With so much of gossip of lowering and raising heels and hemlines, block colours, monochrome, floral prints and the bag of the year, we often get lost in latest fashion trends.
This year, give trends like chic cuts and nude colours a try, mixed in with wardrobe classics like tuxedo blazer and straight skirts.
Here's the essential items you need for a chic year ahead.
A striped t-shirt
Let's start off with an easy one—a striped shirt. Yes, it's big for 2015, but it's also so classic that we plan on keeping the look in rotation forever. Style it with everything from a party skirt to blue jeans. Start a collection with your favorites and it will quickly become an obsession.
Horizontal stripes are best suited on people with a thin structure since the stripes make the person look a little broader from the sides.
Price: MONOCHROME STRIPE TOP- Rs. 1299
A statement skirt
This year, pick up a wrap, tiered, or asymmetrical skirt. Long or short, the ready-styled silhouette makes it easy to mix with a simple T-shirt or blouse.
If you have a pear shaped body, a straight cut skirt is what you need. A straight cut skirt helps one cut down on the broadness in their lower body.
Price: FLORAL PRINT STRAIGHT SKIRT- Rs. 1599
A tuxedo blazer
Want a jacket that will take you from morning to night? We suggest the tuxedo blazer. Though blazers are always a wardrobe staple, there's something about a tuxedo style that makes us stand up a little straighter, even when paired with slouchy jeans.
Tuxedo blazers are a personal favourite for a person with any body type. The blazer can add a formal bling to your outfit if worn with formal straight cut pants. For a more casual look the blazer can be worn with a pair of denims and one can team them up with nice flats.
Price: CHIC CUT AND SHEER BOTTOM JACKET- Rs. 3299.
A Chic carryall
A bag that's both on trend and practical can be hard to find, but designers are coming to the rescue with chic, oversize bag options that don't stick out as too casual. Grab a luxe tote-size carryall in buttery soft leather or velvety suede. The style is large enough to hold your life within it but chic enough to take with you everywhere.
Price: COLOUR BLOCK TOTE BAG- Rs. 2199.
Nude heels go with almost everything. Try a pair with black cigarette pants, your favorite skinny jeans, or even super-trendy white, shredded denim. You can even wear them with shorts.
Nude pumps go with any colour outfit. Irrespective of body types, a comfortable pair of pumps can add to your confidence if teamed up with the right kind of clothes.
Price: POINTED TOE STILETTOS- Rs. 1599.
