Blaze a hot trail, fill up your wardrobe with red, yellow and golden this summer. Generally associated with light colours, summer will see a different hue this time, say Indian designers.
"It's not going to be a pastel-pink summer," fashion designer Ashish Soni predicts about the trends in fashion for the upcoming spring-summer.
Other than tones of red in flashes, which will be highlighted, golden hues will also be strong this season.
Fashion guru Manish Arora told IANS, "Bright colours are going to be big this season. Lots of reds and yellows will add colour to the already bright summers."
As for the cuts and frills, fashion designer Jattin Kochhar predicts that the lacy, sporty and uniform look will dominate. "Figure pants, pencil skirts, wide ruffled blouses, college blazers and V necks will be in this season," he says.
Big volumes, be it in skirts or dresses, which were very big last season, will be out this time.
"Well defined clothes are going to be trendy. Also, sailor stripes or nautical stripes, both horizontal and vertical are going to make a comeback," Kochhar adds.
Other than skirts and dresses above the knee level, open toes and flats in footwear remain among the 'must haves' in the summer wardrobe. In accessories, big bags will remain in vogue.
Another hot look this season will be lingerie worn as outwear. So more of the bustier and corset will be seen in the fashion circuit this season.
Kochhar, however, doesn't rule powdery hues. "Powdery blues, dusty yellows and salmon pink will be seen as well," he says.
