Top 5 trends this week

Hey there! It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a countdown to 5 series so here it is- top 5 trends this week! As we all know, trends are ever-changing, so I’ve gathered together a top 5 list to keep you posted on the latest trends this week. Keep your pen, shopping list & wallets ready because the countdown’s about to start!
Trend 1: Bell sleeves
Popular in the 70s, these sleeves are making a huge comeback in the retail scene this season. And it comes in a variety of lengths. This trend can be carried out with utmost ease on any body type for several occasions, be it casual or formal.
The black strappy bell sleeved top can be worn for a casual night out; whereas the floral Love21’s top can be worn for a casual girl’s day out/date night; the off-the-shoulder sky blue Romwe crop top is best for a brunch out or on a cruise!

Trend 2: Suede
When one thinks about suede, one would normally associate it with accessories such as bags or boots. But in this season suede is seen on a large scale in various apparels. You can spot it in fringed jackets, crop tops or even button front skirts. And it’s a smart way to add oomph to an otherwise casual outfit.
Wear the faux suede mustard crop top from Forever21 for a fun day out with pals; or the smart suede skirt for date nights; the two piece black number from forever 21 is a must have for a night out in town & so is the misguided faux suede biker jacket.

Trend 3: Denim
Denim is a never ending love affair in the fashion world. One simply cannot deny. But there are a lot of different styles seen these days when it comes to denim. From dungarees to jumpsuits & shirt dresses to culottes, we’re seeing a whole new world of denim wear in stores today.
The vero moda dungaree mini dress is cute for a day out with family & friends; make a statement by throwing over the Alice+Olivia cropped denim jacket along with you outfit; the forever21 button front denim skirt is perfect for those hot Indian days; the breezy ASOS midi dress could very well be your go-to dress when you’re meeting pals; the dungaree jumpsuit works well for outdoor picnics with family (do any of you all do that anymore?)

Trend 4: Wrap (it up!)
Introduced to the fashion world by Diane Von F├╝rstenberg in the 70s, this popular number(and it’s variations) are being seen a lot in stores. I reckon it will be a popular trend this autumn season because of the comfort it provides. Initially, it was seen a lot in skirts & dresses but these days, we can spot this trend in tops & jumpsuits too.
Wear this blue Lavish Alice(ASOS) skirt for formal parties; a skater wrap tea dress is perfect for date nights; wear this blush toned tea blouse for a meet with relatives; or you can throw on this nude hued long sleeve wrap dress from Vero Moda dress for any formal party or a brunch out; the brown ASOS grid playsuit is a fun outfit to put on while going out with friends!

Trend 5: Leather
Best for the last! Since it’s autumn weather now, which will soon be transitioning into winter, you will be seeing a lot of leather jackets in stores (especially in Vero Moda stores in India). And it’s not going to be the customary black leather; it will be leather in all different colours- green, mustard, maroon, etc.! How fun! Definitely excited about these!
The pink Zara leather jacket is perfect for Wednesday fashion (taking a cue from Mean Girls, of course!); the Olivia Burton leather strap watch is perfect for date nights & brunch; The Forever21 black platform booties is an absolute must have for any fashion fanatic; so is the black leather trousers from River Island; Wear the pink leather skirt for a day out with pals along with the black backpack from Zara!

So those were the top 5 fashion trends this week! Trends keep changing, which is why I will be updating them instantly here on my blog. Therefore subscribe, if you haven’t already, so that you can get the scoop on the latest trends & posts right in your inbox!
