“I predict bright-vivid-colors for Spring 2016, especially ‘mustard’ after the numerous sightings at the Golden Globes. Also, expect to see a lot of bold vertical stripes. Backpack will continue to go strong in spring-summer 2016 as well.”

“I still have a feeling that we aren’t done with the 70s Inspired Suede Trend, spring 2016 is going to witness the same in different colours like Canary Yellow, Lavender, and patterns such as fringes and tethers adding that extra vintage – boho look (As witnessed in Rebecca Minkoff and Alberta Ferretti’s Collection). Vintage Spanish inspired dresses with shocks of red, flamenco ruffles and ‘X’ necklines is a strong trend too. But of course India is still going to have it’s inherent mini trends where we’ll see the Indie Chic/Neo Modrene Indian look at rise.”

“I think minimalism will come back with a bang. We’re already opting for softer colours, especially with the introduction of rose quartz and serenity into our lives. So pastels and candy colours will be very predominant. Sleeker styles and a lot less OTT and more cut outs and subtle layering.”

“We all are familiar with the 70s inspired trend making a comeback. 2016 would definitely be looking at flares in boho silhouette . I think we can all bid farewell to fringes for a while and welcome a transformed version of 70s slash necks to peasant style to braided hair , cowboy belts and psychedelic prints. This is one big return I am personally looking forward to rocking myself a lot in full rotation.”

“Maximalism and Kitsch Mix are two trends that are going to be strong this year. Last year, we saw the sharp and neat minimalist designs dominate the runways. But It’s hard to stay away from explosions of color, bold designs and embroidered pieces for too long. While minimalistic clean-lined pieces will not go completely out of scene yet, we will certainly see the reemergence of maximalism. We can also expect subtle optical illusions and interesting artwork inspired clothes with the classic polka dots, stripes and plaids getting mixed with different colors, layering patterns and multi-directional shapes to result in an artsy mash-up which adds a pop of excitement to the basics.”

“I think the Victorian trend is making a huge comeback in 2016! Right from baloon and puffed sleeves, ruffles, vintage flower themes to high collared dresses, this influence is going to be major this year.”

“2016 is the year of fashion liberation. Fashion today epitomises complete freedom – freedom form the rules and conformities that ever existed. Fashion in 2016 is all about feeling confident and beautiful in whatever you choose to wear, whether it is a swing dress inspired by the 20’s or a fringe one reminiscent of the colourful 70’s, fashion today has become all about carefree risk taking. You could be a Victorian princess on one day, in high necks, ruffles and lace while on the next you could choose to wear underwear as outerwear.”

“2016 will see a confident fashion distinction. Women will make bolder and classier choices and they will keep comfort as a non-negotiable factor. Palazzos and wide length pants are here to stay. Work Wear Kurtas will become edgier and chic in bold and deep colors. Kurtas paired with skirts will be in trend.”

“From what I’ve seen on the runway, everything seems to be bolder and larger than ever before. From in your face lace to inner wear as outer wear, more denim on denim, large print plaids as seen in Thakoon and Victoria Beckham runways, 70’s inspired looks and print mixing as seen on Alice+Olivia and Preen. Fringe has been ruling the runways for a few seasons now and is still going strong. If McQueen’s collection is anything to go by, Victorian dresses will also make a comeback this season.”

“2k16 is going to be all about ‘fringe benefits’. Fringe sling bags were a huge hit last year so now they have moved to fringe skirts, jackets, crop top etc. Make sure you pick one of them.”
