Ashima Sharma, owner of Ashima S Couture and Anushka Tugnait, Celebrity Stylist are sharing some tips on winter outfits to stir your wardrobe.

* Tucked in a sweater: This winter you can flaunt your fit and toned tummy even through sweaters. Keeping the fitness factor aside, this trend is quite adorable. The tucked-in and belted sweater style give a more modern and a clean look. You can tuck them into jeans, skirts, trousers or even under a skinny belt.

* Pagoda shoulders: Everybody knows that shoulder pads are making a huge comeback this year. But another trend brewing within is that of pagoda shoulders. This style had fallen out of fashion, but now they are making a resurgence. Pagoda Shoulder has a convex line with an elevated outer edge. We have seen them on sweaters, dresses, jackets and dresses, basically, everywhere.

* Leather on leather: After the success of denim on denim, now the fashion trends are all about leather on leather. Let go of pairing a leather jacket with jeans or a leather skirt with a satin top. This fall-winter fashion, wearing head-to-toe leather outfits will be in vogue. You can even mix colours, like pairing black with burgundy or brown.

* Animal print: This winter there is no escaping from an animal-inspired pattern. The leopard print has always been the hero and hailed by many. The brown sporty patterns are considered to be very versatile. Those who want more of ‘wear it whole day piece’, then invest in a leopard print midi skirt and you will not regret it.

* Shades of brown: Despite being shunned by many for some years, this Fall-Winter season, Brown has become the most dominant shade. From trench coat to jumpsuit to zip coat, all styles have gone wild for brown in all its hues. You can simply layer a shirt or jacket over a fine black roll-neck and you’ve nailed.

Off screen, Janhvi Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan slay the salwar kameez look, setting a fashion statement that the new generation may otherwise consider ‘bygone’. Patialas and Palazzos may come and go, but there’s something evergreen about salwars, say style experts.

Mansi Gupta, Co-founder, Tjori, says the salwar has been tweaked over generations to suit the needs of women.

“The simple salwar was first made into the Patiala salwar, later they were made as dhoti salwar and then harem salwar or palazzo salwar…all these modifications to stay in the latest fashion trend. But it is a dynamically structured garment that shall never go out of fashion.

“Ask the average Indian women what would be their go to outfit when they have to go out or stay home, I can assure most of them will say a simple salwar kameez. The salwar is one of the very few Indian garments that hasn’t lost its ethnic value, and are forever,” Gupta told IANS.

In a latest on-screen stint, Sayani Gupta has been seen sporting salwars in “Article 15”. As Bollywood celebrities have quite an influence on driving the mass fashion narrative in the country, who knows the classic salwar may begin to be seen more frequently.

Sreyashee Halder, Design Head, W, said: “The comeback of salwars are inevitable – we can already see it becoming a hot favourite with designers and in the new age, the salwar will take a renewed form. We will see variations and innovations in that silhouette.

“Like in every fashion cycle – silhouettes and trends come back – this trend has also begun its journey back as it is going to be a refreshing change to the tight-fitted churidar. It also has its pros and cons and an extremely comfortable silhouette.”

She, however, feels that unlike a churidar which makes one look slim and tall, this silhouette is not as flattering. And so, “salwars will be back but may not stay for eternity”, she said.
