The latest trend in the fashion industry are the straight cut suits. These suits were famous years ago and now after some slight variations in the design and fitting, they have become a part of every woman’s wish list. These suits can be glammed up by increasing the length of the center slit and teaming them with printed leggings or tight pants. They are the choice of most of the celebrities for a casual event or talk shows.
2016 saw skirts and crop tops that made the fashion world come to a standstill. There was not a single movie star who did not wear this dress for award functions, audio launches or promotional events. Same colored skirt and top in bold colors were preferred by most of them, while normal girls preferred a splash of color on their dress.
Floral prints are back into vogue for good. They are extremely beautiful and feminine that it makes me wonder how it even went out of fashion. These floral prints on dresses, skirts or kurtis are classy and gives the girl adorning it a breezy look. It is the perfect dress for a not too traditional, simple and elegant festive look.
