Mornings in the Capital are getting a bit foggy, while the evenings are nippy. The Delhi winter is here. As we took a stroll through the white arched columns of Connaught Place, Delhi’s street wear was looking ready to beat the cold. We saw furry caps, which seemed to have been imported right from Russia, to trendy pullovers to chic shawls.
But just because the city will be covering up for winters doesn’t imply that style will be sacrificed for warmth. And if these initial days are anything to go by, Delhi-ites are right on-spot with their trends. From jackets with bursts of colours to anti-fits to bright knits, they are prepared for a trendy winter. “In 2009 there were colours like chocolate brown, burnt pink and bronze. This year I hope to see little bursts of colours in the form of details in Delhi’s winter garb,” says designer Anand Bhushan.
The aspect of Delhi’s culture that mixes the old and new effortlessly is also seen in the way its people dress. So, along with quilted bomber jackets, there are khadi Nehru jackets and tweed sports jackets in the Delhi-ties’ winter wardrobe.
