Latest fashion trends 2015 are what we are always looking for. Change is imminent. If anything is permanent in this world is, that is change. The same rule applies to fashion world. Fashion trends keep on revolving, paving way for the new. Fashion trends in 2015 have seen some pleasant changes in the fashion world. Fashion designers have experimented with bright colors and bold prints and designs giving way for plain colors. Many of our bollywood celebrities such as kareena kapoor, sonakshi sinha, Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padokone and others have shown off their like for skirts and brazen crop tops.

Hand painted sarees will find a place for block printed ones. One of the emerging entrepreneurs in India is Tishy Tripathi Shukla who runs a small scale company known as Tishyakriti. Is a good example of hand painting work.  You can get beautiful designs of your choices to give your favorite saree a desired change.

The basic idea of a fashion trend is concepted and visualized by fashion designers and are subsequently endorsed by celebrities and subsequently called as latest fashion trends. The same story is every summer, winter or another fashion events organized. This is the way the business in fashion world works. But it is the end customer, who gets benefited by latest designs, colors, and prints. The  business is never out of flavor.

Another flavor this season is short skirts. If you have a nice skinny body and want to look great and are bold enough to flaunt your thighs then short skirts are the right match for you. In metros like Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Delhi and others they are trendy. Especially, now when the mercury levels quite high, these are natural choices. You can pair flared skirts with your favorite accessories like rings, bangles, bracelets, belt, and shoes and so on. If you are planning for a romantic evening, then there is no better option than these cute short skirts. Pair them with a colorful and flower printed designs to get a perfect look.

 Fashion designers like Sandeep Khosla and Abu Jani are testing with straighter cuts and multi-panels to achieve layering and volume. The whole concept is to transform preference for Anarkali pattern. Even fashion designer Monisha Jaising foresees fashion trends coming the natural way inspired from nature. She quotes “You’ll see shades like the treetop, almost metallic green, gaining favor and mineral shade of titanium will be popular as will shades like sandstone that have an intrinsic sort of rugged texture to them”. Surily Goel quoted “ Prints are already going crazy. I recently saw a woman wear a sari with the face book logo printed across its length. But, I believe we’ll see a lot of Japanese-inspired prints. By that I mean, you may have the cherry blossom print but in a different color-scheme than the traditional Japanese sense.”

As we discussed about how your wardrobe is going to shape this season, your accessories and footwear’s are going to get a makeover. Footwear’s will are set to get floral prints, animal designs inspired from African culture. Get rid of those plain colors and give you a tang of these latest fashion trends. In accessories you are set to see those long, slim colorful floral designs that hang around your beautiful ears adding and elegant blot to your face.

These were some interesting fashion trends making a wave this season. Go and try out these, to pep up your persona. These small changes in our routine keep the monotony away and rejuvenate us.

Three main things you require Saree, petticoat, blouse. First, unfold the saree and place it on a open space.

Then prepare few pleats and tuck the plain part of saree inside the petticoat. Check twice, that the end is properly tucked with  lower ends are up the floor.

The 5 to 6 yard sari is now in demand, they are worn over the petticoat in Marathi called parkar /ghagara. A traditional sari’s width varies around 40 to 45 inches with two lengthwise borders known as kinar / kanth. The sari covers around half length of the back. Sari is two bordered breadth wise two ends known as padar and the decorated part is put over the left shoulder. There are a variety of  sarees available as kanjivaram, chanderi, banarasi, paithani (my favourite), irakali, banarasi, etc.  Raw material is cotton  or silk.

 

For men , Maharashtrian costume are changed as per trends prevailing. For family occasions or festivals they generally wear ackan, chudidar  survaar / payjama. Traditional clothing which many men still follow in rural parts of Maharashtra is dhoti and shirt.

On auspicious occasions a Nauvari saree is preferred. they are also famous for their elegant style and design. A good variety of accessories are all along with it. They include a nose ring called Nath, in Marathi, necklace, bangles,  pearls etc. You can get these Maharashtrian costumes all over Maharashtra.
