Lounging for hours in our pyjamas has become a new norm, one that will deﬁnitely continue into next year. Brands like Prada have converted home-wear into stylish day-out outﬁts, so you can rock a stellar yet comfortable sweatsuit; pair it with cool sneakers or statement earrings and you’ll look just like Sonam Kapoor did over lockdown!
The baggy silhouette is expected to stay in fashion, from high-waisted denims to edgy khakis, the conical shape – ankle to waist – oﬀers a slimming-look. Fit for the oﬃce or an evening out; they provide drama and elegance all in one. TIP: Elevate any ensemble with a cute pair of heels for an easy switch between casual and party.
This year, we’ve seen the rise of upcycling, encouraging one to opt for vintage items or borrowed oversized garments as seen on inﬂuencers like Masoom Minawala. Forgiving our pandemic bodies while revolutionising the business-casual look, go the extra mile by ﬁnding co-ord top and bottoms!
The perfect way to combat Thailand’s heat, adding sheer elements has been popular on the runway with designers like Dior, Vaishali S. and Archana Rao for Spring 2021. Whether it’s jazzing up a plain tee or putting a modern twist on a sari for a marriage of spice and class, sheers can be adapted for all occasions!
What happens when the classic ﬂip ﬂ op gets a makeover? You get next level slippers in funky silhouettes, bold colours, and with fun embellishments. A staple by designers like Tom Ford, you can remain in a ‘relaxing-at-home mode’ while out on the town with these comfortable yet chic footwear.
Layer it On
We’ve gone from chokers to large pendants, but what’s next? Having the best of both worlds and layering all of them. From necklaces to rings, this trend lets your imagination run wild, with brands like Jil Sander and Chanel oﬀering pre-curated combination sets to mix and match. TIP: Pair a stone pendant with minimalist chains on top of a bold, colour-blocked blouse for a showstopping look.
Crop-tops are so yesterday! Time to swap them out with the new style in town, the bralette. Another item to survive tropical heat, this once innerwear-only item has made headlines this season. Available in a variety of fabrics, it’s a statement piece that can be easily layered. TIP: Pair one with a bold blazer for a bewitching business-casual look!
