Sport metallic dual tones or go bright with orange, do it the film industry’s fashion icons’ way to up your fashion quotient.
Anshu Choudhary, stylist at Craftsvilla.com, takes a leaf out of these Bollywood divas’ style books and suggests which ethnic fashion trends will rule this year.
* It might seem like a big faux pas to team gold with silver. But metallic embellishments, sequins and plenty of sparkle, with minimal make-up rocked the look last year. For instance, Bollywood diva Kareena Kapoor Khan looked chic in a sequined gold sari with silver border.
* Matching your blouse with sari is passé. Now team it with an ethnic jacket. The advantage of mixing and matching allows you to create new sets from the separates. Pair pastels with bold colours, and mix and match your prints. Team up embroidered waistcoat with a salwar kameez or jumpsuit to give it the much desired ethnic touch. Fashion icon Sonam Kapoor donned a Patiala bottom with a top and a jacket.
* Even a touch of floral print on a simple outfit can be stylish. The options are boundless. You can capture the nature on fabric and craft elaborate designs of the blossoming buds, the green leaves, petals, or by using vibrant shades of red, pink, aqua and orange. Get inspired by Deepika Padukone’s look in “Bajirao Mastani”.
* You can go orange like Kangana Ranaut, who once sported an orange suit. But maintain caution while using the colour because wearing it from head-to-toe could make you look like a pumpkin.
