Honest opinion about the Indian Fashion Scenario

IN, OUT & FOREVER – Indianwear for Ladies in Summer

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on February 24, 2011

What’s IN????

Knee Length Kurta with Churidhar

Summer time often remind me of cooler things like lemon juice and cold shower, so why should our dressing be any different???? The knee length kurta combined with chudidhars are back for the summer and absolutely required. Go for fabrics like cotton and chiffons for that lighter feel…………………accessorize your outfit with a dupatta or a stole, a bag and jewellery.Try straight cut or flared at the hemline for style. One can also opt for kurtis with trousers or pants. Pastel colours are great since they help you keep cool throughout the harsh heat but you can opt for darker shades for night time. One might get to see alot of this style in the upcoming Indian Fashion Weeks…………………so go ahead buy as many as you want to be trendy & ready for the Summers.

What’s OUT????

Heavily layered Anarkalis

I have seen every single celebrity wear one of these and am totally sick of it by now. Heavy Layers of fabric like crepe and silks with a touch of velvet is great for winters but the summers call for something light. No doubt the Anarkalis look fabulous, but do ask yourself this……………….Is it the right silhouette to be worn in heat???? This trend is on it’s way out, so stack them up in your wardrobe and go light…………


Trend that’s Forever


A Saree is a creation we Indians have given to the world…………sensuous, stylish, evergreen saree gets my vote for a must have in every Indian Women’s wardrobe. Come summer or winter, the saree stays firmly in it’s place…………try draping the saree as you wish or one can even pair it with leggings, go the traditional gujarati way, double drape it like the 1960s, wear it the Bengali style, try on ahalter neck or a strappy blouse, pleat it up for the sexy look………..infinite ways to drape your saree. That’s way it is the trend which will be my favourite in Indianwear. Go try it on for the next partyto look ‘OH SO FABULOUS’.

    As much as I would like to agree with you, I believe the floor length anarkalis are still very much in.. They are so in vogue.. Our celebrities and socialites wear them so often, that other people (normal people) want to wear them too..

    I work as a stylist at a studio, and we make clothes too, and most of our clients demand floor length styles..

    Also just a week ago, it was reported on the front page of the BT that it is the ‘IT’ item, and everybody (who is tall enough) should wear them!!

    • Hey Roxanne,
      I agree to your point that the anarkalis are beautiful but tell me are winters really over in India now???? The style prediction is for the summer as the title of the article suggests……….would people really prefer to carry layers of clothing in summer heat.
      Plus eminent designers like Manish Malhotra had launched his Floor length anarkalis as ‘Autumn Winter collection’ and never as ‘Spring summer’ collection…….you can see the Lakme Fashion weeks 2010 on this website. he will launch his newer collection in the upcoming Lakme Fashion week to be held in March where I am sure he would go for anarkalis but in a lighter version.
      Please do understand that this is a style prediction which I have studied w.r.t fashion weeks held in India and I do not make predictions as per the celebrities. the knee length kurt a displayed in my article is from JJ Valaya’s ‘Spring summer 2011’ collection.
      hope I have justified my view point.
      Take care
