AIFW SS’16 is around the corner and fashionistas across the country are rummaging their closets to put together the perfect Fashion Week wardrobe. Fashion week is the perfect time for two things – to see and to be seen, both equally important in our books! It’s that time of the year when the sartorial minded folk put their best foot forward and the ‘street style’ one witnesses at a fashion week is nothing short of spectacular. With all the magazines, editorials and fashion bloggers milling around looking for well dressed people to write about, you want to be sure you look fashionably fabulous through fashion week. And that’s where we come in. We have put together a cheat sheet that will guide you on how to dress for fashion week so that you have your best shoe forward at any point (pun intended)!
- All Black Everything
When someone says ‘Black is Back’, we wonder what they mean, since it never really went anywhere! Through the annals of time, black has been the consistent go-to colour and for the most part, you just cannot go wrong with a black-on-black outfit. An inevitable star in everyone’s wardrobe, this versatile colour can be worn day through night. Bring out your classic black dress this fashion week and layer on accessories of the same colour.
2. Boho Chic
Fashion week can be quite hectic and you want to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible. Plus, who doesn’t love an easy breezy Bohemian look? A nice maxi skirt, paired with a pretty blouse can look extremely chic. You can throw on a pair of sunglasses and some fun jewellery to dress it up depending on the time of day.
Sometimes, you need to dress down in order to dress up! We are talking about one of the hottest trends this season – minimalism. Clean, fluid lines that are all about comfort and elegant simplicity are the silhouettes of the hour. A white midi dress paired with pretty flats, a scarf and some jewellery make for a lovely fashion week outfit.
4. All About The Skirt
Look every bit the fashionista in a pretty high-waisted midi skirt paired with a classy crop top. All the rage these days, find the right pairing and silhoutte for your shape and you can’t go wrong. Some statement jewellery and a dainty sling bag will complete the look.
5. Pretty In Prints!
Prints are trending and how! If you want to have some fun with this trend, throw on a feminine printed dress that accentuates your figure and makes your legs look miles long. The best thing about this dress is that you can wear it with flats during the day and throw on heels at night for the after parties!
6. Trouser Tales
The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting cooler as the weather seems to have taken a turn for the better. In this transition period, a pair of trousers or jeans coup-led with a smart peplum top is the perfect fashion week ensemble. Wear this outfit with a pair of heels, carry a smart bag and of course, accessorize, accessorize, accessorize!
