Style your dress as effortlessly as a pair of jeans. Dresses are a wardrobe staple, and 2017 has a relaxed take on it. They are deconstructed, de-structured and loose, with elaborated ruffles and uneven hemline-structure is out and comfort is in. Add a touch of feminism with ruffles that are big, both in terms of volume and proportions. But don’t let them consume yourself; cut the curves with an interesting play of belt or waist clincher. Play a sleek muse with ease - wear silhouettes that not only add oomph, but flare gently to flatter your rebellious self. Bustier and bralettes are the game changers this year. Create a high-low by pairing your lingerie-like pieces with embellished skirts, flared pants or distressed denims. If modesty is your policy, then you can sport this trend by layering with jersey tops. The art of layering will up your game - add a bustier on a clean and solid tee, or flaunt your curves by letting the bralette peep though an oversized shrug. We have not had enough of athleisure last year and are raving for more! Still confused about how to embody the trend? Just adorn your workout or athletic wear to the next social occasion. Convenience is the key, as our wardrobe is the mirror of our active lifestyle. Studded track suits, velvet track pants, message tees and subtle tie-ups are the definite essentials of 2017. Pair a chatty sweat with sneakers, a message that resonates your thoughts out in the open without saying a word.Cold shoulders and off-shoulders are a thing of past, it’s time to stuff your wardrobe with sleeve-slits, one shoulder and puff shoulders. Whichever way you swing, let the obsession with shoulder and sleeves continue. A modern update to the timeless style is an oversized silhouette and exaggerated length of sleeves, where the hems almost rub the knees.Bold to banker or mammoth to minimal, stripes rule the fashion scene this summer. They have never been this bright and vibrant. You can combine stripes of different sizes together. Nothing is more ground breaking than a dash of nautical influence in summers, this is one look which you can take from the Wall Street to the fifth avenue. Play with vertical stripes to create an optical illusion for added extra inches to your stature.We need something to balance out the summer colour war, and what better than the classy and utilitarian khaki to give neutral hues to the season. The use of khaki can be widespread - from shirt dresses to belted skirts, from runways and streets to workplace. Khaki in its earthy tones is the cool kick you need in summers. Jump the safari bandwagon to stylishly step from brunch in the day to an evening uptown event.
