Fashion is what you’re offered four times in a year by designers , Style is what you choose .
Hi My Loves,
Every season , as the fashion gurus sitting in Milan and Paris decide upon what should dominate our wardrobes for the coming few months , there are still some trends that we just don’t seem to let go of until it becomes a complete fashion faux pas.
So come along my fashionistas , let’s check out 4 such trends from 2017’s Fall/Winter collections that we totally are gonna continue on to 2018 !
1. 70’s Plaid
Plaid and Checks are usually connected to 90’s Grunge but last season was all about the bright plaid from the 70’s . From Coats and Pants to Full length Gowns , different types of plaid ruled the winters last year . Here also , in the plus size world , in India , we spotted all types of plaid from Window panes and Tartans to Gingham in mostly every brand .

2. Couch Florals
If your grandmother was any bit an interior designer back in the day , her living room was what inspired designers last season and we ain’t complaining ! It’s literally the Vintage Floral prints from her curtains and couches back then that have now translated into everything feminine – From frocks and casual tops to princess gowns and sneakers even . This is one trend that I am sure to carry forward into Spring /Summer 2018 .

Velvet has been one fabric that I just cannot seem to let my obsession over it go . My love affair with velvet has been loyal and strong ever since I first wore my velvet burgundy skirt in the 3rd grade . And when this 90’s favourite came back in trend in 2016/2017 , I was ecstatic ! This is a fabric that instantly adds luxury and regal vibes to your outfit. It has always been a staple when it comes to Indian Wedding outfits but last season , the velvet , more so The Crushed Velvet was seen in formal dressing from Blazers , Body Cons , Trousers and Full Suits to Skater Dresses and Sneakers . Light colours like Blush and Grey and Royal Colours like Emerald Green and Maroon are what mostly ruled the velvets across designers.

4. Patent Leather
The last year was all about bringing back the good old days … and Thank God for that ! One trend that particularly caught my eye was the Patent Leather Trend – At it’s pinnacle in the 80’s , Shunned in the 90’s and back n kickin’ in 2017 . I dont know how much of this we can still use here in hot and humid places like Mumbai but I’d say enjoy it while it lasts. In other words , before the sweat stains start transferring onto chairs and sofas . Although leather jackets have never left , patent leather was seen last season on skirts and boots to tops and bagpacks .
