Smart dressing tops this season’s fashion trends. And by smart we mean, the right selection of fabrics and colours that are weather friendly and elegant for Eid celebrations. Style light yet glamorous. 2021 is the year of modish styles with a variety of designs, looks and fabrics. From embroidered chiffons to block printed silks and asymmetrical patterns to pastel and bold hues, here’s the latest Eid catalogue for you with latest fashion trends. Top that bun, put on your fashionista glasses and scroll through for some amazing picks.
Since Eid and scorching heat waves are sharing summers, it is utterly important to eye details on fabric. Choose simple yet stylish. Embroidered chiffon work wonders while printed cotton is likely to be the most breathable fabric of all. Light on body, these beauties compliment well. For an absolute classic look, pick the whole outfit in one colour (say white or mint) and pair it with oxidised silver jewellery. There you go; an uber chic look yet minimal and skin friendly.
Asymmetric Design & Layering
Ditch straight cut-outs and experiment with asymmetrical kurtas this Eid. Play around with length with no proper borders or simply volumize those sleeves. Choose ones with light embroidery around the neck or some floral appliqué work and pair with a plain bottom. The trick is to highlight the top and there’s your look – phenomenal, creative and light as air. High-low kurtas also grab attention and add hints of quirk to an otherwise simple outfit.
Commons call it shrugs, but we call it layering. Be it an embellished long shirt or quirky printed jacket, a layered dress is what you need on your checklist. Wear the layer for photo-sessions and ditch it later for a comfortable feast. Buttons or strings, choose the right layer knowing your style.
The Art of Silk
One fabric that never swirls down the table is silk. A silk ensemble shouts class, poise and beauty. Pure silk kurta set paired with statement jewellery can never go wrong for your dawat session. If you love six yards of fabric, a silk saree with thick contrasting border decked with pearl neckpiece is another ultimate go-to-outfit. Well, silks today are available in multiple patterns like solid art silk and block printed kurtas. Pick a nice palette and it becomes a haute couture so graceful that women, irrespective of age, term it the hottest pick this season.
Timeless Traditional Bottoms
Ruling Instagram feeds this festive season are cigarette pants, palazzos, dhotis, skirts and sharara sets. Mothers call it their style of 70s and 80s, but we know how cool and trendy these bottoms look even today. Flowy, airy and open to experiment! Well, let’s pair – short kurti with sharara, A-line kurta with dhoti, peplum top with trousers and palazzos are quintessential, works with all top styles. These looks are the most trending on 2021 fashion radar.
Pastel and Bold Hues
Right colour is confidence and comfort. Before binge shopping, know your palette. A simple rule of thumb is pastel days, bold nights but you can always turn the table round and pair the right fabric with the right colour. Chikankari chiffons and organza grabs attention in pastel hues like pink, lavender, mint and whimsy yellow. While neon colours are going hot with cotton sets. The universal silk though, like always, balances both bright and neutral shades. Tip – since it’s a quarantine celebration, explore new colours like teal, illuminating grey, sorbet pastels and bright yellows.
Accessories speak a language so strong that you cannot get eyes off them. These are the golden snitch, show stealers and the informer of style and vogue. Waist belts are the hottest this season – be it with dresses, co-ord sets or sarees. Select bright for muted dress or lustrous for solid drape, the heads will definitely turn in awe. Hanging tassels for kurtis make a comeback this season along with string tie-up details for layered shirts and Angharkas.
Fashion is all about diversity of styles and Eid couture this season is full of varieties. Choose right, blend perfectly, wear with a smile and you are ready for the grand fest.
