Craftsvilla, India’s largest online ethnic store, shared a roundup of the best styles of salwar suits from 2016. These trends won consumers’ hearts all over with its versatility and high fashion quotient. Here is a quick look at the top five trends of 2016.
The Print Story
Prints have been in vogue all throughout 2016. We’ve seen everything from tie-dye to animal prints, pretty florals to digital prints and everything in between. Indian inspired prints are a trend that is here to stay. Prints like Indigo, intricate block prints and Ajrakh have taken the fashion scene by a storm. Experiment with salwar suits with fun digital prints, stripes, checks, florals or abstract and you will surely make a statement that’s hard to match.
Here’s another trend that has been around long enough and rightly so. Allowing to blend styles, cuts from different cultures to come up with outfits that steal the show is one of the reasons why this trend is not going to fade away anytime soon. So, team up your embroidered, multi-coloured jackets with a kurta and salwar for a fun Indo-fusion look.
Straight cut suits are a rage these days. Inspired from Pakistani suits, straight suits are elegant and graceful. Worn with a churidar or pencil trousers, the long A-line kurta makes you look taller and slimmer. It has been a hot favourite with women, especially for office goers, due to the formal look it offers.
This one needs no introduction. A hot favourite with women today, the palazzo rage is here to stay. It’s versatile, suits all body types, is comfy, light and easy-to-carry — do you need anymore reasons to fall in love with this style. Pick up a palazzo suit with a narrow leg to look slimmer and taller, or go for a wider flare to add volume to your petite frame. Team it up with a matching kurti, and you are all set to dazzle at any party.
Bottom wear is no more an accessory to your kurti or top, it’s a style that has evolved to come on its own. So, 2016 saw a major shift from plain and simple bottoms as people experimented with a host of options available in the market. From embroidered straight pants to printed salwars, palazzos, skirts, harems pants — bottom wear were the real statement makers in 2016.
