Heard of cocktails inspired by runway collections? Well, we are changing the game a bit. For a season-perfect wardrobe palette, we have taken inspiration from some classic cocktails to define the colours, which are trending on the runway and in celebrity-dome too. From getting peachy with PeeCee to mulling over wine reds and indulging in citrusy Mimosas — take your colour pick. And while we are at it, we’ve got some vlogger aid to help you ace these heady mixes too. Cheers!


Get the look: If PeeCee’s doing it, you should too. This wispy touch of peach reminds us instantly of a bubbly case of Bellini. Add a bit of strawberry and you have your colour ready. Like Priyanka, match the outfit with a frosted shade of the colour for a statement lip.

Take a swig: Bellini is made of Prosecco, Italian white wine, or Champagne, combined with mulled peach or its purée.

Get the look: All that glistens might just help you strike gold. Sparkly Champagne shades seem to be the season’s favourite among celebs. Here are a few looks that are on board. Go for a crisp metallic look for a red-carpet perfect event or experiment with brocade separates, like Diana, for a stylish edge.

Take a swig: Drink it straight from the flute, or make a classic gold Champagne or sparkling wine cocktail with mint, sugar syrup.

Get the look: Cocoa shades, indulgent taupes and chocolatey hues are big during the winter — runway trends from around the world are a testament of the same. While layering, these shades can be paired with sunset hues like orange and red.

Take a swig: The classic gin-based cocktail gets a chocolatey twist by infusing coffee and chocolate-based liqueurs.

Shades of wine are season-perfect and from beauty looks to wardrobe picks — they have been trending. Here’s Lotte Verbeek and Christina Milian, acing the shade. (Shutterstock/AFP)

Get the look: Wine shades have taken over this season. From nails to lips to sartorial picks — celebdome is high on the deep, mulled wine colour. From lush velvets to sequinned variations, go for the dark shade for a glamorous night out.
