It’s not what you wear that matters, it’s how you wear it. Our generation has witnessed the most drastic changes that have taken place in decades. From the glamour industry to an individual on the street, fashion has taken on a new take. One of the most dramatic and what is to be believed an everlasting change is the fusion of traditional wear with western attires. With the passing time and the changing trends, their apparels are being customized according to every individual’s need and liking.
“Trendy is the last stage before tacky.”
Though there is a lot more to the fashion industry than the dresses still dresses are the items that have won the crown over the years. These outfits can range from cocktail gowns to skirts from sarees to a kaftan dress, from wraparounds to jeans or whatever one can possibly imagine. The fashion trends have changed a great lot of deal when it comes to apparels starting from the bell bottom jeans made by the hippies in 1960s. The parachute pants introduced by Michael Jackson in 1980s to the slim fit jeans on 2000s.
Giving it a new facet and helping it flourish, our media too has played a huge part. As people are fashion influenced by celebrities and their role models including cricketers, public speakers, and royalties, the media covers not only Bollywood movies but also page 3 parties to highlight the fashion trends and changes that the influencers follow. People take what they see on media very seriously for many reasons. Some follow the trends considering them to be a key to fit in, and some find it to be a way to spend money while others simply do it to gain fame and attention in their social circle.
However, fashion is not just about the clothes you wear; it’s also about the accessories you choose to wear along with, it’s about the hair and makeup you choose to apply, it’s also about the footwear that you buy. It is a combination of all these things that make up a fashion statement.
Money can’t buy you happiness, but it sure does buy you diamonds. And who else can be more loyal to a lady than her diamonds?
When it comes to fashion especially the jewels, it’s preferred to stay one step ahead than following a trend. This year is filled with thriving drifts from the return of the triumph pearls to the three stone engagement rings. We have put together a few of these trends to keep you up with what’s coming your way. Watch out and don’t miss it.
From what we see in the past, necklaces were supposed to be minimal and constricted (choker being a clear example) but with the passing time the layers have been increasing, and the trend now is up for the longer, plenty and freer. However, there is a very fine line between keeping it simple and overdoing it. The best suited for this type are the chains along with charm pieces or costumed assortments.
