One of the biggest trends on international runways and the one trend that is predicted to become huge across the world this spring is that of color blocking. While the fashion forward have been indulging in the same this last season as well, it is set to become a true style staple this spring. The art of mixing colors has never been as interesting before.
While most people think that color blocking is a trend that only matches western cuts and silhouettes, the reality is that with a little bit of innovation and forward thinking on your part, you can actually use the trend for Indian clothes as well.
From salwar kameez sets to sarees and even lehenga cholis, color blocking can be suited to Indian sensibilities. The best way to do so is to understand how colors pair together. Using colors from the same family is one of the easiest ways to take your first steps to work this trend.
For Indian women, color blocking is not actually a new trend because we have always inherently mixed and matched colors. What is new this time around is that instead of using patterns and prints of different colors on a solid color, with this trend you need to combine two solid colors together.
So how do you do this without looking over-the-top? One of the best ways to do this would be by first deciding which silhouette to wear. For normal, everyday wear a salwar kameez may be your best option while for a festive occasion, you may choose to wear a saree or even a lehenga choli. Play around with the trend by wearing a kameez or a choli in a bright color and a lehenga or a salwar in a darker, contrasting hue. With a saree, the best way to use the trend would be to wear a lehenga saree, where the pallu can be a completely different color as compared to the rest of the outfit.
At G3 fashions we have many designs that take this trend and turn it around to suit Indian aesthetic sensibilities. Color blocking may be an international trend but it is one that can be easily adapted to Indian designs and cuts without garish results. So this spring embrace color in a completely new way and showcase your inner fashion diva.
