Lakme Fashion Week Summer-Resort 2016 is finally here! It’s that time of the year again when you can lay your eyes on some gorgeous silhouettes, ornate embroideries and designer theme-based collections. For most, it’s only natural to pay close attention to what’s going on at the ramp during the five-day event but it’s nothing unusual if there’s a persisting thought running through your head at all times saying, “What do I even wear to the fashion gala?”.

Ladies, it’s time to put your best fashion foot forward to get the paparazzi’s attention. Here’s how to nail it!


Look 1: With Bell sleeves being all over the international runways and retail stores, this one is a no brainer. A bright mini dress with large bell sleeves will create the right amount of drama. Team it up with a pair of block- heeled mules and you are good to go.


Look 2: Fashion week is the time to take risks, and if you’re willing to experiment you should go all out. A contemporary look is bound to attract everyone’s attention. An ethnic skirt and a sleek black coat or blazer along with offbeat jewellery is an absolute winner.


Look 3: Those of you who still can’t get over Pantone’s 2015 colour, Marsala, don’t worry you’re not the only one! This gorgeous colour is still our favourite and combining it with 2016’s Pantone colour, Serenity, is the perfect amalgamation of past and present. Pair it up with unique pumps like these to give everyone some major shoe envy.


Look 4: For those who love the bohemian vibe, this year’s trends are made just for you. The combination of bell sleeves with a white off-shoulder top is perfect. Combine it with a pleated midi skirt, another trending piece, and your outfit will be flawless. Take inspiration from models and celebrities and add a simple black choker to complete this chic look.


Look 5: If you’ve been following all the international fashion shows, this one will come as no surprise. Botanical prints look fresh and have a sensual feel to them. Contrast the delicacy of the top with an edgy pair of black culottes and you’ll look like you’re fresh off the runway. Add a touch of quirky fun with pop art accessories.
