5 terrific trends from Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2014

Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2014 is over a week ago but we just can’t stop raving about the terrific trends it showcased this season. We have chosen the five most doable and stylish trends which can be easily adapted to your everyday wear.

1) Crop top

Crop top has been here for a while and is certainly not going anywhere for sure. If you have a toned mid-riff, this is the perfect opportunity to show off. It is a summer trend which can be easily worn with a long skirt, palazzo pants and even skater skirts.

2) Print on print

Print on print adds a lot of character to your ensemble. It is difficult to match it perfectly but once you know the trick about what works for you, you will score a 10 on 10 with the style brigade. Try and get the prints from the same color family. Fine prints and bold prints can be contrasted against each other.  Look for the colors which compliment you.

3) Art

Who said you cannot wear art. Designers like Aarti Vijay Gupta, GeNext by INIFD, Love from India presented tops which had art print and looked striking and impressive. One of the best ways to showcase your love for culture and art is by wearing one on yourself. The bright prints are bold and do make a statement. Wear a short dress with art print or team it up with printed leggings to up your style quotient.

4) Trousers with high-low hem capes/tops

Darling Lisa Haydon made high-low hem cape with hot denim pants look super cool in ‘Queen’. But it wasn’t the first time high-low hem made heads turn. It has been here for a while and looks like it’s going to grow stronger in the world of Indian fashion with each passing day. Especially, when ace designers like Suman Nathwani and Manish Malhotra showcased formal trousers with high-low hem capes/tops in their collection. It looks super chic and can be easily adopted in everyday wear.

5) Maang Tikka with western wear

After Deepika Padukone appeared in a maang tikka along with a red-carpet gown in one of the recent award ceremonies, this has become a style statement for many. Even, Lakme Fashion Week saw many designers promoting this style. If you plan to wear one, try and choose delicate designs for day wear. Team it with skirts, trousers and anything you like. Bouffant hair styles help to carry these headgears better.
