Vintage fashion, digital prints to rule runways
Vintage Fashion    
The year 2013 will witness a lot of abstract digital prints and resurgence of vintage fashion, especially of the 1950s variety, with re-introduction of pencil skirts, predict fashion designers.

"In 2013, we will see re-emergence of many past trends but one trend that will push the envelope a little further is the digital prints. These abstract digital prints will enhance the look in a simple and understated way and will add fun and colour to everything like kaftans, maxi dresses, shift dresses and pencil skirts," says designer Anita Dongre.

The trend recently dominated the runways of Paris, Milan and London Fashion Week.

Not only international designers like Peter Pilotto, Christopher Kane and Christopher Bailey but Indian designers like Kallol Datta, Gaurav Gupta and Rahul Mishra too showed their fascination towards digital prints on the Indian runway, making it one of the hottest trends for next season.

According to designer Nikasha Tawadey, the clothing trends from the era of 1950s and 1960s, especially "circle skirts, A-line skirts and nipped waists", are likely to create sensation in the new year.

Jewel up the dull winter mood - here's how
Jewel up the dull winter mood  
Does the winter season end up making you feel dull? Pep up your mood by dressing in bright colours and glam up the look with statement jewellery pieces - a wrist cuff, a pair of striking earrings or studs. Opting for fusion isn't a bad idea either, designers suggest.

"Options for wearing jewellery during winter are minimal because you are laden with many layers on to you," says Sumit Sawhney of Apala Innovative Jewelry.

But who says you can't experiment?

"Women can still flaunt their jewellery pieces with overcoats and jackets. Longer neckpieces go remarkably well with pullovers and jackets, while multi-layered chains in stone and gold give a very elegant look. Since you already have a lot of volume on to you, stick to minimal accessories that become a focal point. For a bolder look, you can go for big bold studs to complement your turtle necks," says Sawhney.

Ladies can add a dash of glamour with big chunky chandelier earrings or a flashy brooch - they are "bang on trend" and easy to flaunt, says Tarang Arora, CEO of jewellery brand Amrapali.

Designer Neety Singh, however, warns against use of heavy neckpieces.

"Since one is mostly covered till the neck, it is not the best time to flaunt neckpeices. Effective earrings, rings and cuffs in jewel colours look dramatic with blacks, greys and browns," said Singh.

"Do not mix coloured jewellery with coloured clothing! With coloured clothing, it is best to stick to classic diamond studs and bands," added the designer, who recently launched her winter collection in pure 18- and 22- carat gold, incorporating diamonds, platinum, rubies, emeralds, pearls and other semi-precious gemstones.
