Clash of colours: the new trend

The so-called jarring fashion trend is back on the sleeves — be it the magazine covers or international award functions. We’re talking about the clash look. Be it Paris or Milan, the international runways are also full of such bold clustered colours, which designers have termed as the season’s ‘it’ trend.

The so-called jarring fashion trend is back on the sleeves — be it the magazine covers or international award functions. We’re talking about the clash look. Be it Paris or Milan, the international runways are also full of such bold clustered colours, which designers have termed as the season’s ‘it’ trend.

Singer Fashionistas are vouching for this trend to be a big hit in coming times. However, Bollywood still shies away from the clash look. “The clash look is back with a different twist. However, understanding your body type is very important for carrying off this look. If you have a big bottom, a big colour block will make them appear bigger.

It will take some time for our B-town celebs to get easy with this experimental look; you need a killer attitude and guts to slip into this style,” says designer Anand Bhushan. The thumb rule for any kind of fashion is — don’t follow it just-like-that. Designer Arpan Vohra says, “Don’t use too many colours. It can make you look like a clown. Always have one sober colour, and break the two with a simple belt or a scarf.” The clash look can make you look like a diva but don’t do over the top. “Never go ballistic with clashing outfits. Minimise with accessories and a simple hair-do. Carry an extra cape or a stole and change your style accordingly,” says designer Abdul Haldar.
