The Only Rule Is: There Are No Rules!

The Only Rule Is: There Are No Rules!
Read below for ten quick style rules!

1. Colour

Copper is the colour of the season. It will become even more popular in the upcoming seasons. So replenish your stocks in this deep hybrid of orange and reddish brown.

All shades of grey from light to dark are also a must have in your wardrobe- in the form of blazers, jackets, tees. Very unusual for it to be trending during the summer season but it is all about how it is styled.

Also there has been a strong representation of blacks, greens and navy blue by a lot of designers in their latest collections, mainly because of the winter season.

Greens can range from military to mint to forest green.

To finish your look with a blazer or a jacket – the colour camel definitely is the most popular this season.

2. Fabric

High shine fabric is an absolute must have this season. Silk shirts are perhaps the easiest way to get the shine look and could be worn under, pretty much any regular suit.

Leather, is another great option (think leather pants). Nylon outerwear is yet another way to look absolutely fabulous.

3. Shoes

Get your hiking brown boots on – versatile enough to be worn with practically everything, from track suits to tailored trousers. Shoes in general are getting chunkier by the day, with thicker rubber soles instead of wooden ones. Details on shoes of hand stitches or a statement buckles are making a great comeback too.

4. Turtlenecks:

This is an essential in everyones wardrobe as the roll neck revival shows no signs of stopping. Best way to wear it is with jeans and your new cut soft padded blazer or alternatively with high wasted pants to give it the 70’s feel.

5. Hem lines:

Yes, the hems are loosening up! The high waisted plaid pants are everything we need in our lives to look like a fashionista. A great pair of flairs or any kind of loose trousers are definitely trending this season. As evident in the top notch designers recent showcases.

7. Blazer:

Both single and double breasted blazers are in vogue, but with a less defined cut to achieve a softer look, especially on the shoulders giving it a slouchy, oversized vibe. Try out striped suits or play with contrasting stripes of various tones, from the same family, worn together.

8. Prints

The bolder stripes are a must this season especially in the classic black and white. Also all kinds of square patterns and patches.

9. Accessories

The pocket square or a lapel pin are great accessories which will instantly add colour to your look. You could use one or both in your attire depending on the occasion and the colours you are wearing. Incase you want to play safe and typically stick with boring greys, blacks, browns then this will definitely add a pop of colour to your look.

The colourful, funky socks with various patterns are a very British thing. You will see people from all age groups in London in trains, tubes, at work (you name it) in colourful socks with their suits. It can be said with confidence that this fad is not fading anytime soon.

Just make sure not to use all the accessories in one look so you do not end up looking a clown.

10. Eastern

Try plain sherwanis for a formal wedding event and Nehru jackets (either with or without sleeves).

Try churidaars or white pants instead of the classic shalwars with your Nehru’s and sherwanis for a little bit of a twist.

The Pakistani shalwar kameez is a traditional attire and will never be out of fashion, no doubt. Make sure to keep the cuts and fitting well. The length of the kurta should be right below the knee if wearing it with a shalwar.
