Memories = Magic! And what’s better than knowing you can slip back into your childhood favourites and have that make a fashion statement.
We’re talking 90’s trends making a hard-hitting come back with all their gorging glory.
Some might say no era’s style is as equally loved as that of your childhood. It was a time filled with sequin, spandex, sass and soaring style!
This Children’s day, the Stylease is majorly throwing it back to some of our fav childhood trends that have been resurrected and are back to rule the runway!
#1: Bells on Belles
Whether you pair them with a crop, with a short kurta or with a longer top – from bell bottom jeans to retro dreams, there’s no more just wearing these to a costume party.
Bell bottom palazzos are back (and how!) in this new incarnation. They make for the perfect evening-wear when worn with a heavy dupatta and for a subtle but striking destination wedding ensemble when worn with a simple kurta.
Either way, these go with heavy chand balis like the Aara Earrings from the Johari’s Box.
#2: All Eyes on Ikat
Ikat is a trend that never goes out of style – Traditional Ikat weaves have made a comeback in Indian fashion like no other and transport us back in time to our childhood days and ways.
Patterns are passed down from generation to generation and simple as the innocence of a child, Ikat is subtle and earthy. With colours, cuts, silhouettes and varying patterns – Ikat exudes a regal sense of legacy without being heavy or unmanageable.
Imagine your favourite wallpaper on a weave – this comes in kurtas, tops & long jackets to add a trendy, pop to a traditional outfit. Ikat has been modernised and infused with a new life with the addition of detailing like colours and pom poms. This is accessorised best with chunky Indian silver or our Eesha Zaveri Traditional Gold & Pearl Drop Necklace.
#3: Now you see me, Now you don’t
Tease them and please them all in this simmering festive staple that’s been pulled right out from the years gone by. With a little peephole and a lot of style, the front slit is best worn in a heavily embroidered slit jacket with a heavy sequined lehenga.
That’s why we have the Stylease Exclusive Gold and Mint Green Embroidered Lehenga Set. Let your hair down in cascading waves with long dangling earrings.
You could also go chic and wear this style with a bandhgala kurta and dhoti pants like we do with the Blue High-Low Top and Dhoti Pants.
If you aren’t completely confident of the front slit, give this trend a modern twist and opt for a slit on the side – either way, this one will slay.
#4: The Nehru Jacket
Men – children’s day throwbacks won’t leave you out! Fashion sure did a fine job with this one – all the way from the wardrobes of our political heroes growing up, the Nehru jacket has come to be seen as an icon of sophistication, strength and boundless style. It exudes a simplicity and charm and is definitely a heart-winner!
While it can be worn casually and open buttoned on jeans, it can also be styled with a pocket square on formal pants. What’s more? The Nehru jacket is even worn with lose Indian kurtas making it versatile for most any festive event on your calendar.
The Nehru jacket even comes in quirky florals for the day, bright colours to be worn with printed pocket squares and deep blues and emeralds for the night.
Get on our lean, mean time machine! This one style is evergreen.
So go ahead and reminisce the good old days
without compromising on stylish ways
A cocktail of fashion & nostalgia but not without style
Stylease will take you that extra mile!
We wish all of you a Happy Children’s Day! May your precious memories be personified in your fashion picks this season.
