Looking for the latest trends for the upcoming Fall weddings and festivities? Trust me there is a huge shift of fashion from the last year to this year. That long velvet shirt you added in your closet last season would be a huge hit that time, but has nothing to do with fall 2016 fashion scene, so you must stay updated about the latest fashion trends before running into your tailor’s.
To ease up your struggle a bit, we have gathered some hot fashion trends for fall 2016 from none other than the prestigious Haute Couture event –the Lakme fashion week 2016 winter/festive collection. India’s one of the most prominent fashion event held last week in Mumbai where the runway prevailed with shiny, glitzy Bollywood diva and tastefully designed, beautifully created formal dresses.
We have chosen 5 of the best inspirations from Lakme fashion week to follow:
- Capes –the trending coverup for fall 2016
You have seen warm fabrics, fur, and shawls and many other ways designers use to keep you trendy in cold winter nights –this time its capes. Either it’s the sheer sheath on Manish Malhotra’s signature embellished gown worn by Jacqueline or Shriya Saran’s Bling in neutral short cape over embroidered full-length gown or even the spectacular Rohit Bal’s vividly embroidered cape –you’ll truly make a statement by layering up your attire with this fancy coverup.
- Statement Printed silk
For the past few years, we have witnessed different fabrics for fall with chiffon and velvet topping the list. But after the Lakme Fashion Week has been aired, silk is back in trend with all its softness and warmth. Anita Dongre’s glorious printed silk lehengas with front open kurtis and cholis are not only grabbing all the limelight but also really easy to carry in the cold foggy nights.
- Monotone Formals
Whether it’s Kareena stopping the show in khaki green or Manish Malhotra’s navy blue skirt blouses sparking the audiences with their awesomeness, the shades that’ll be going to rule the fall 2016 fashion are the monotones, earthy, natural ones. So, if you are planning to get something formal, try monotones to stay in the style game.
- Embroidered jackets
We are talking about formals more, but hey, when our entire winter calendar is full of festivals and weddings –we definitely have to. Our another favorite layer for fall –the jackets, which are back in trend as we witnessed the gorgeously embroidered jackets of Rohit Bal in the last day show of the LFW week.
You should definitely go for a cool looking embroidered jacket that can be paired up with almost anything –a matching cropped top and silk trousers, saris and even lehengas.
- Head jewellery –still in the game!
With all the matha pattis, jhoomers and big’ol teekas –the jewellery trends for fall 2016 has nothing to do with neck-hugging sophisticated necklaces. The featured jewellery found in the prevailing LFW is mostly emphasized on vintage jhumkas, and kadas and rings. For the bangles, necklaces, and chains as long as they are traditional and vintage; they can be enlisted in the best fall 2016 trends.
