    Nothing defines romance and sensuality like lace. Ethereal white lace even more so. The girls at Chloé, Louis Vuitton and of course, Valentino were dressed in this beautiful fabric playing with transparency and making it more seductive than ever. As the delicate fabric unveiled skin here and there, it created immense desire on the runway.

    This trend can be followed by wearing full length dresses which have lace sleeves, or wearing white sheer tops with lace at the bottom of the top. These are available in mostly street shopping hubs these days, are reasonably priced and look extremely delicate. If you want to avoid looking too girly, you can wear lace in colors like black too where it is sort of concealed due to the overpowering black color

    From overt influence to subtle ones, with that long silhouette tied at the waist, the iconic Kimono inspired quite a few fashion houses this summer. With Marni using a combination of cream and black, to Céline’s sleek black robe, the kimono is definitely in trend this summer. It could also be shortened a little bit and worn as an overcoat.

    You don’t have to go to Japan for this one. You can simply wear a trendy jacket and tie it in the front using a nice strap or belt, thus just giving the impression of a kimono. The above picture of the runway look can be used as an inspiration.

    Floral Print


    Who doesn’t love floral? It gives just the perfect feminine touch to an outfit. And some major fashion houses have definitely realized that. But this season, they have been modified a little bit with some bright in-your-face colors, bold prints and cuts here and there. Top houses to realize this trend are Céline, Simone Rocha and Chanel. And they didn’t just restrict the print to clothes, but also in accessories and even boots.
    How to wear this trend?
    Floral is one trend which you can wear in any part of your outfit, and you won’t go wrong. Instead of however wearing the same floral tops, try floral prints on the pants with a simple top tucked in, or in your shoes (wedge heels). Floral print bags also look great whether they are totes, slings, or just purse bags
  8. NAUTICAL

    Everyone likes a little breeze over the runway, isn’t it? The runways took to the coast for this season, with nautical stripes, shades of blue and flowy silhouettes. With oversized Lanvin coats, to yatch inspired dresses at Chloé and a sailor uniform at Marc Jacobs, the designers took the runway, literally, by storm. Nautical has thus definitely set sail for Spring Summer 2015.

    Nautical stripes and that typical blue color are something that will almost never go out of style. So wear those lines on t-shirts, or high-waist pants or just shirts with denims. These stripes also look great on bow ties, ties, scarves and tote bags

This one is sure going to make heads turn, so go ahead and flaunt that belly.

    The crop top has not left since it came into style a few years back. Advance your style quotient by wearing this in fabrics like lace which you can thus wear to parties too.
