This 12 months fell and rose from 1 of the worst lockdowns so considerably in the next wave to slowly but surely finding back to a new ‘new normal’ amidst the new Omicron variant.
And style, way too, observed these ups and downs in designs that trended this calendar year, starting with our trustworthy pyjamas in isolation and coming to an stop with lehengas in a slew of celeb weddings, bodily crimson carpets and activities wherein celebs introduced back again OTT dressing once again. While some trends failed to wow, some gained our heart that we would like to see a lot more of in 2022.
Banish: The OTT lehengas
Don’t get us completely wrong. We like a Manish Malhotra or a Sabyasachi lehenga instant. But recently, there has been an overabundance of gaudy, OTT, in-your-eyes lehengas outside of celeb weddings and on red carpets and advertising occasions, all carried out-there-seen-that. We would love for our most loved Bollywood divas to experiment with their style and step out of the sartorial consolation zone of lehengas.
Adopt: Dopamine dressing
Neutrals and all blacks will normally be classics, but for 2022, we want to get into a extra optimistic and colourful spirit with outfits that mirror the exact. Even Deepika Padukone, whose applaudable manner feeling has advanced in excess of the past calendar year, has adopted colors in her wardrobe, embracing both of those vivid hues and experimentation with the color palette. The only rule is to have fun and costume to specific
Banish: Luxe sportswear/athleisure
Sportswear and athleisure outdoors fitness centers, basketball and tennis courts, and the Pilates studio seemed to have taken more than our wardrobes (and social media feeds) in the course of this year’s lockdown. And even though Girl Diana’s cycling shorts seem will normally be adored, it could possibly be time to give it some relaxation and give your dressy trousers and gorgeous satin tops a possibility, as soon as once more.
Pantsuits in all colours, suits, and fabrics are welcome in 2022. It is the best crack to power dressing minus the hazard of overdoing it. Pair it with a t-shirt, a crop shirt, tank top, or a corset like Athiya Shetty dependent on whether or not you want it to search extra informal or dressier.
Banish: Y2K fashion
The ripples of Y2K style was felt all across the world wide style field as this design and style, popularised by the likes of Paris Hilton and Christina Aguilera, returned with a roar. And we would like to believe that in 2022, the trends of crop tops, lower waist mini skirts, hair components, and the likes will subside.
While sustainability in style has extensive been 1 of the most debated, aspired for as well as exploited conditions, we would adore to see far more statement and daring sustainable sartorial selections by our silver screen celebs, like Taapsee Pannu did in this upcycled dress produced out of brocade straps by designer Ashwin Thiyagarajan. We would also appreciate to see a lot more small scale, neighborhood, responsible models from India as opposed to omnipresence of bigshot intercontinental designers and models.
Banish: Impossibly prolonged nails
Nails as extended as fingers ended up additional than a instant in 2021, with 1 strange manicure type trending after a different. For 2022, we want to see this predatory-style nails be replaced with dainty French tips, innovative manicure, and possibly even a throwback to limited, unpainted nails?
Adopt: Statement accessories
The 12 months of Zoom meetings has taught us the art of the accessorising as failsafe strategy of wanting dressed up, even in your pyjamas. And with that emerged accessory developments throughout the environment wherein the who’s who of style had been found sporting eye-catching components, peaking with Bella Hadid’s golden lungs at the Cannes 2021.
