Colours and prints to watch out for this summer
Summer is around the corner and it is time to give your wardrobe a break from the dull colours and heavy fabrics. Spring fashion is all about bright colours, stunning prints and flowy fabrics that are breathable and also offer a great drape, like viscose and modal. Looks like nature-inspired, abstract and animal prints will be trending this season along with bright shades of colours like yellow, pink-red and neons. Sustainability will also be key moving forward, hence fabrics like viscose and modal will be the preferred choices. Spring fashion is also about leaning towards a more relaxed fit as opposed to bodycons and skinny fits.
Abstract art has always found a prominent space on runways and now it is topping the spring trends list. “Haphazardly drawn splashes of colourful paint decorations have been witnessed on everything right from jackets to blouses and pants. Lowers with a panel of abstract print on the side with a solid neutral coloured top will make for a great look this season”, says Nelson Jaffery, Head of Design, Liva. These can be paired with block heels or sneakers depending on the occasion.
