You might not know this, but Wills India Fashion Week is the only fashion show in the country that showcases designs one season in advance. Which means that if you’re looking for the perfect honeymoon ensemble for that summer destination, or picking pieces for your work wardrobe post the honeymoon and wondering what to wear to dinner parties once temperatures rise again and those heavily embroidered velvets will no longer do – YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!
WIFW just concluded their Spring-Summer 2015 shows and I, of course, scoured ALL the shows from all 5 days to bring you Summer Picks for your Trousseau.
You want to travel comfortably, but with a bit of style. Not so much though that it looks like you just walked off the runway. Although these were picked off the runway, they’re wearable, fit for travel and definitely “easy style”. Yup, just made up a phrase that I’m pretty sure has been used before, but let’s just let credit remain in my pocket for a while, shall we?
Big fan of the pastel pinks, baby pinks and dirty pinks making their way into our closets. Also, notice how the midi is in? Midi = Comfort = Major brownie points for ease of travelling in!
Pankaj & Nidhi gave drool-worthy outfits – vintage-y, my favourite type!
To The Beach
Sexy swimsuits by Shivan & Narresh – the kinds you can only wear on your honeymoon at a beach abroad.
Outfits perfect for a day out at the beach! Or pool side.
Ok, confession time. These work for work (see what I did there?) only if you work in the fashion industry. Or at a place where you’re expected to turn up in something other than a formal pair of pants and standard blue/white shirt – day after day. After day. After day. *flashbacks to my days in corporate uniform for 3 years* Gahhhh…! *shakes it off*
So, for those of you blessed (or cursed?) with a workplace that welcomes personal style statements – this curation’s for you.
And of course, some options that can be worn to any office –
Formal Dinner Parties and Summer Weddings
You should have options in your trousseau to quickly slip into for summer events, especially those endless dinner parties where you’d want to look like a stylish newlywed and not the in-your-face one loaded with jewellery and zardosi. Light, light, light.
Manish Gupta churned out some beauties in these pale yellows and mint greens. Accessorise with pearls or emeralds.
