Past Forward Fashion Trends for this Winter




Its woman’s prerogative to change her mind which explains why fashion is so fickle, but some trends from the previous season are here to stay and are already there in your closet you just have to add a bit of deconstruction or a touch of innovation to use them this season.

Animal prints:
A trend that’s never out of trend but just keeps getting hotter with the set of innovations added to it every season. Don’t keep it very bold but something like animal print boots or a scarf is a classic investment for this season.

Wear it with a twist:
You can also experiment with coloured animal prints or try snake, reptile, peacock or zebra prints instead of the monotonous leopard and tiger prints or glam it up as accessories from bags, belts, neckpieces, rings to earrings.

This print is so inevitable that it’ll soon sneak into the ethnic wardrobes as well as we see them rocking the ramp at Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2013.

 Where to find it: It’s something that is easily available from local stores to high end brands.


From leather quilted jackets to leggings and peplums and pencil skirts all those trends from the last season are still on the charts.

Wear it with a twist:

 Leather collars and leather pockets sticthed on other fabrics can make an impact .You can also add a bit of color and go for burgundy, rust or gold apart from traditional classy black.                                                                                                                                               

 Where to find it : I like Forever21 and Zara for their leather fabrics and cuts.


Aztec is still in the race giving tough competition to animal prints. One of the most versatile prints that can be used in black n white as well as in colors from brights to pastels equally well. 
Dresses, blazers, knits, palazzo all look hot with Aztec and moreover it looks good on men as well! J

Wear it with a twist:
Try the Aztec prints on crop tops or sling bags & with bright colors, paired with it but be careful use it in moderarion don’t use another  bold print with it.

Where to find it: All these are available on with even more varieties.

Crop tops

Cute or sexy?  Which one do you prefer… If it’s tough for you to decide this trend is for you to follow and leave it on the viewers to decide 😉

Wear it with a twist:
Turtle neck, polo neck  and even collared  crop tops will work well this Winter. You can also try zip front and tie up knot tops.

Where to find it: and

It is the most comfortable yet chic bottom wear ever made! Long live this trend where our legs can breathe and we don’t have to worry about our flabs :p They look the best when worn with crop tops or with tops tucked in.

Wear it with a twist :  You can pick up a printed palazzo or even go for the traditional darks like black, navy, emerald  and try a monochrome look which is quite in this season.

Metallics( Gold) 
Gold is the color of the season. From Kenzo to Vikram Phadnis its gold all over.

Wear it with a twist:

All that glitters is not gold so apart from the accessories, studs and sequins you can opt for the brocade pants as in Vikram Phadnis show or golden jackets or try the hottest combo of the season Gold and Black. From ethnics to western wear it was seen in almost every alternate show at Lakme Fashion Week including Sabyasachi, Rocky S, Amit Aggarwal, Nikhil Thampi, Shantanu Goenka, Rahul Mishra as also in International Fashion Weeks.

For more on the trends that are gona hit the stores from the runways this season keep following DhinchakMumbai and as I always say Fashion is something you can buy but style is something you should possess. KEEP IT STYLISH.
