With a spring in your step

Spring summer once spelled colour, comfort dressing and easy chic. However, with global warming and economic upheaval, in today’s evolving style landscape, there’s actually no difference between spring summer and fall winter. It’s not a rarity to spot bright orange in fall and head-to-toe black in summer. Designers across the board are bringing season-less offerings, which work well at any time of the year. Over the last few seasons, leather and chunky knits have become increasingly acceptable for summer and liquid-like slip dresses have become a fall favourite. The rationale being: there’s always summer in some part of the globe.

In Indian fashion calendar, Spring plays a crucial role as it’s stunningly eclipsed by the cheery Holi festivities. There remains no excuse to ditch the monochromes in favour of a vibrant colour palette – sunny yellow, fuchsia pink and citrus orange. Floaty kaftans, breezy jumpsuits and tailored shorts paired with uber-comfy tops do all the talking as you entertain friends and family in style. This Spring Summer looks big on sporty chic which has spilled on from fall winter months. As much as we cringe at the sight of high-top white sneakers on street style blogs, they aren’t going out of style anytime soon. Gym-inspired separates with high heels for a night out with your girlfriends look completely on-trend.

Spring is also the time to plan your summer closet and some heavy-duty spring cleaning. Invest in key essentials which will take you from a work meeting to a brunch. One can’t go wrong with the little white dress worn with a pair of comfy vibrant sneakers or nifty espadrilles. A printed kaftan worn with a sporty varsity jacket and wide-brimmed hat is a fail-proof option for the perfect day look when the weather gets crisp and sunny. Make a stylish entry with a spring in your step. Also, it’s time to plan your holidays and shop the right clothing so that you look up-to-the-second chic as you hang loose on your vacay.
