Mega Trend: Through Colour (latest post for Vogue.In)

26th March 2013

Here’s my latest trend post for Vogue.in. that went live on their site last week. I’m a fan of this trend, I love bright colours and its a look that works best kept simple. Although I wouldn’t be brave enough to rock Topshop Unique’s yellow suit and am more likely to opt for a jumpsuit or tee & jeans in fushia or orange….

The fash pack are calling this trend ‘through colour’ and it simply means wearing the same colour head to toe. And no, head-to-toe black or navy doesn’t count! It’s more about making a statement through bright hues.

International designers present an array of Crayola colours from sunshine yellow and tomato red, to cobalt blue, fuchsia, emerald green and tangerine.

Here are some tips on how to get the look.

Colour me all the way

To wear the look at full-volume you can take inspiration from Topshop Unique and Jonathon Saunders and work a matching pant suit.

For a glamorous turn on the trend opt for a long sleeve maxi dress as seen at a Gucci. Or go for a Stella McCartney-inspired sweatshirt and pants combo, if you’re looking for something more relaxed.

Colour me some of the way

An easier way to work the trend is by showing some skin, like Anushka Sharma did in her bright yellow halterneck maxi by Victoria Beckham.

Atsu’s sleeveless trench set is another chic way to get the look.

Spotlight: Sridevi & Madhuri Dixit’s style

27th Dec 2012

When I saw the pics from the recent Hello! India Hall of Fame event I wasn’t coo-ing over the young-uns gowns, it was all about Sridevi in Prabal Gurung and Madhuri Dixit in Dior. They definitely topped the style charts that eve! Its fab to see two Indian forty something style role models. They are showing that it’s not okay to give up and opt for elastic waistbands and loose fitting kurtis or for that matter about clinging on to youth by still wearing short skin tight dresses but more about evolving your style. Both actresses know that its all about the cut, knowing what suits your body shape and not flashing the flesh!

Sridevi day look is so easy and sooo right, whether it’s a well cut blazer and skinny jeans or white top and coloured trousers. And as her for eve looks, with her tall athletic frame she looks stunning in Sabyasachi as well as the long gowns in pops of colour.

 Madhuri’s petite and curvy frame looks best in clothes that are well fitted over the bust, nipped in at the waist (often with detailing at the waist to emphasis the area) and that flair over her hips. I do prefer her traditional choices over her western looks but saying that- she looked amazing in that Dior gown!

I would have liked to have added more forty something style role models but let’s face it there aren’t many older women in the public eye. I hope that starts to change too!
