When one moves from winter wardrobe to another fit of summer, the change brings out a major shift in your fashion mood board. This time, reconstruct, revamp and renovate your closet staples keeping in mind trend forecasts, and add to it your individuality.

Neon, pop and candy continue to be the chic-most option for vibrancy that spells spring. Add to the same palette, indulgent blush shades. Candy cane stripes, cupcake pinks and popsicle limes also make for playful fashion for the season. For the night, Chicago-musical style flapper dresses are a hit pick. For accessories, go for sleek, oversized portfolio clutches and punk-some ear cuffs.

Ear cuff
Perfect way to pull off everyday grunge, they line the ear, can also have separate dangler-attachments. If you have looked for that accessory which can immediately glam up your evening wear, go for the ear cuff. You can either go the couple way or wear it on just one ear.

Portfolio clutch
Envelope style, opens up like a clutch. Big with colour block, neons. This is one accessory that can function fashionably across the board. Bejewelled or metallic for an evening out, and candy hues, pastels otherwise.

Flapper dress
Historically, a break-out dress for women, it is associated with empowerment. It's a vintage version of the shift dress. If you watched Catherine Zeta Jones in her film Chicago, you would remember the 1920's-inspired dress in an instant. For curvy ladies, it's a stellar option, and for those on the skinny side, teaming it with a summer blazer works.

Skater skirt
Inspired by roller-skater girl get-up. Hit with pleats and metal sheen. Skater skirts and skater dresses are a fabulous way to ring in the season. From our desi fashionista Kangna Ranaut to neo-vintage trend setter Lana Del Rey, the short pick is big worldwide. If going for skirts, team them with your last year's florals or experiment with layering with cropped tees.
