LAYER IT UP



By Asra Shaheen

WITH A RAZZMATAZZ OF SCINTILLATING SHRUGS, GLITZY JACKETS AND VIVACIOUS WAISTCOATS, IT IS TIME TO WARM UP TO THE ARRIVAL OF BALMY WINTERS.

Anip in the air announces the winds of change. And that’s when you like to snuggle yourself a little more with a layer of warmth, a dash of style and oodles of attitude. Winter fashion fun begins with asymmetrical hemlines, boho-chic prints, panache pockets, and of course lapels and buttons; some of these sartorial enhancements not only nestle you up in comfort but also go on to define your fashion quotient. So, how about smart shrugs, jazzy jackets and vibrant waistcoats to welcome the winters?

While the outerwear makes an haute couture entry at the runways of Indian and international fashion shows every autumn-winter, one finds some of the most wearable and equally voguish versions of them dotting every fashion street in the town as well. Come November-December and there’s a visible change in peoples’ outfits across most regions of India. However, no matter what season and time of the year, the fairer sex is ever-ready to dress up to the occasion! And winter is no exception.

Hey women, take a lowdown on the razzmatazz of the different layering styles that’ll keep you comfy in trend this season.
Shrug It On!

A body-hugging, cropped cardigan-like garment for women, shrug is closer to a sweater in design. It is available in a variety of materials including cotton blends, acrylic blends, lycra, cashmere, crochet, denims and sheer knits.

“Shrugs are a really cool way to cover up, and add that edge to a formal as well as casual ensemble. So, when in doubt, grab a shrug and bedazzle everyone,” suggests Guprit Sawhney, MD & founder, Trendy Divva.

He further elaborates, “Based on style and length, shrugs are generally of four types. The first one is a tie-off shrug which features two long strips of material in the front that can be used to create a bow or knot, or can be wrapped around the torso. Girls often use this type of shrug. Another is a shawl shrug that comes with a larger wrap structure and can be worn over the shoulder like a shawl. Then, there is a drape shrug which falls a bit below the average shrug, adding a bit of volume and flow. The last one is a cropped shrug that does not include a tie-off element and ends just under the armpit or a few centimetres below. Shrugs can come with full-length sleeves, three-quarter sleeves, and short sleeves.”

STYLE MANTRA

Wear a cropped shrug over an extra-long well fitted t-shirt and tight jeans.

If you are unsure of carrying a backless dress, team it up with that black shrug of yours and you’re good to go!
Wear a lycra shrug over a georgette shirt, especially if you’re figure conscious.

For a sophisticated chic look, team up your shrug with a stripped tee and slim-fit denims and an attractive pair of shoes.
Shrugs with lace look excellent for weddings and parties.

A black or white one is a wardrobe must-have as it goes very well with both, formals and casuals.

Jazz Up with Jackets


Going by the kind of excitement Parineeti Chopra’s jacket created in some media circuits for its stark resemblance with Kendall Jenner’s jacket at the Billboard Music Awards, we can only warn you, “Ahem, don’t underestimate the power of a seemingly common jacket!” If Ms. junior PC inspires you to check out a multi-hued, maxi jacket or cape, the sizzling Chitrangada Singh sets the LFW Winter-Festive 2015 stage on fire, adorning Tarun Tahiliani’s scintillating creation in black teamed with gold, embroidered fringed jacket.
As Siddharth Saigal, entrepreneur, Wrap Studio points out, “Jacket is a timeless wear and can make a woman look extra confident.” He adds, “You may want to try short length/ cropped jackets, commonly known as bolero. Or flaunt your height with extra-long or maxi-length jacket.”

“I think jackets, especially the embellished ones, look breathtakingly beautiful with Indian ethnic wear. Bandhgala jacket appears fascinating when worn with a flowy lehenga. Pairing a jacket with a kurta and palazzo pants is another great option. You can also give your saree a much-unexpected twist and style it interestingly with an embellished jacket. For more inspiration, look up to our fashionista Sonam Kapoor who rocked in her white saree at Cannes by teaming it up with a golden jacket,” quips Guprit.

STYLE MANTRA

Team up your kurti with a jacket to lend a western feel to your ethnic wear.

You may also try a jacket with a short kurti over palazzo pants, depending on your body type and comfort.

Multi-coloured cropped jackets can go well with anarkali suits.

A simple Indian wear can be stylized instantly with a bright shimmery jacket.

For a stylish nine-to-five or party look, a blazer jacket is your best bet.



Waistcoats for a Voguish Edge

One look at waistcoats and you are reminded of ‘VIP’ mantrijis walking out of the laal-batti ambassadors. From boardrooms to secretariats, waistcoat has been a man’s best friend in formal wear. But the fairer sex has always been quick to adopt the best combos of style and comfort from men. Waistcoat is one such combination. And when ‘she’ wears it on, expect nothing less than elegance-par-excellence!

“I love to wear my green brocade waistcoat with my white frock-type kurti and green leggings. I’m always on the go, mostly on my two-wheelers. I feel dupattas are not safe for me. Instead, a waistcoat is a smart option to lend a complete look to my outfit,” says Pooja Kulkarni, a marketing executive with a startup firm.

Gals, there you go! If you thought waistcoats were drab and demur-looking outerwear, you’ve got it wrong. Agreed that it originated in men’s closets but remember, when we do it, we do it with élan! From quirky prints to vibrant colour blocks and Western styles to Indian ethnics, you can only be spoilt for choice.



STYLE MANTRA

Get set for sangeet/ mehendi or any other party-wear with zari waistcoats on sleeveless anarkali. Let your jhumkas match the zari for that ‘wow’ touch.

Make heads turn your way with printed denim waistcoat over your favourite tanktop and jeans.

Give an ethnic twist with a paisley-printed waistcoat paired with solid-coloured kurti and jeans/ trousers.

This time around, as the mercury begins to drop, cosy yourself in the best of outerwear to celebrate the onset of winters.
