Two years ago, the concept of jeans+leggings seemed like a revolutionary idea and most women shifted from straight fits to these skinny, stretchable ones, in various colours. Now, the idea of jeggings makes us yawn. In an era of anti-fashion and the anti-fit, the skinny jeans looks odd. The young crop of designers is bringing back ease and it's time to fill up the wardrobe with the loose-fits, boyfriends jeans and the slouchies.
We actually like palazzos but have a problem with the cliched styling. Why must it only be paired with a plain tee tucked inside? Many celebrities have been spotted in these wondrous pants but the risk of looking like a clone makes us fold them again. It's time to experiment with them — wear a mid-riff top or a peplum tube top. Even a long grandmotherly sweater will give the outfit some novelty.
Colour Blocked Ensembles
Last year, we overdosed on the formula of three bright colours, and pink, green, yellow and orange were clear winners. Dresses, saris, gowns and even pantsuits sported the candy colours fashion has moved on. These fads get old very easily, stink of monotony and do not have a long life. If the colour formula still excites you, try colour-blocked clutches instead.
