Spotted on the runway – peek-a-boo paneling and strategic layering, its official, we’re having a sheer obsession!

Find a high-low floor length jacket to wear over a jersey dress or throw it on over a tank top and straight-cut jeans; it’s a wearable trend worth investing in.

Caped crusader

Parisian glamour came to the Mumbai runway this season in the form of the classy cape! Capes aren’t just for the comic book superheroes; our designers gave it their own chic-spin with cut-work and sheer details.

Find a top with a cape-like structure, if it’s sheer, it’s even better! Alternatively, opt for a jacket with sleeves and drape that resembles the circular structure of the cape.

Suit up!

Androgyny swarmed over the ramp this season with sharp lapels and sexy pant-suits – go on, borrow your boyfriend’s blazer, sport it over a dainty top, we’re all for contrasting elements!

Go on, invest in a unique style, we think every girl must own the skinny in longer versions and colours , a thick empire-line belt and an Obi!

Pumped up kicks

Breathe a sigh of relief, comfort is finally in fashion! From street style mavens to models, everyone’s wearing their sneakers with pride. We’re loving the all white and print-happy versions – wear them under a girly or glam dress and watch the onlookers go cray cray.

Wear art, don’t buy it

We saw a slew of designers that drew inspiration from artists and painters alike, we think going print crazy this season is just what the doctor ordered.

Wear them strategically with solids – we think an artsy print top underneath a solid coloured pant-suit is just the best look ever!

So, which trend do you plan to sport this summer?
