LFW runway shines with designer's street style fashion

Lakmé Fashion Week’s Summer Resort 2014 designers are in majority of an agreement when it comes to the summer look being that of an international one. Last season, the indo-western chola tops, kurtis and patiala pant led the trends to fuse Indian wear with the west. 
 
However with this year’s fashion week focusing on street style, many designers recommend some revived and currently trending international garments for the summer. Designer Ritika Mirchandani talks about the use of cotton that is weaved into most fabrics this summer to add that simplicity and comfort. “Textured cotton is a blend of stronger fabrics with cotton to give the garment shape but also keep the look casual and smart”
 
80% length is back!
LFW designer Ritika Mirchandani calls it the 80% length which is an extremely trending phrase and trend this summer. “When I talk about 80% lengths I don’t necessarily mean pants or capris but even long skirts just above the ankle”. The material and fall of these garments are important to give it a comfortable yet smart look. Pastel shades are also recommended by Ritika as women tend to stick to darker shades for their pants and skirts. “Feel free to fit on lighter shades and diversify your color palette this summer!”
 
Easy, Breezy, Maxi!
The summer is all about keeping it simple for LFW designer Chandni Mohan. “You don’t want to wear fitted tops and outfits as the heat can make you extremely uncomfortable. A high low maxi is the perfect outfit to keep you cool” keep it simple and just add that extra element of color and class. Block print, digital, handloom, floral shaded maxi dresses will add that color to your day!
 
That 50s show! - Vintage dresses
LFW Designer Sounia Gohil is all for reviving the vintage dresses this summer. “If I had to wear something this summer, it would be those gorgeous summer dresses that women wore in the 50s with floral patterns, dotted and striped patterns or even blocked colors”. Dresses of the 50s are a much trending garment this summer as it has elegance and exudes great femininity. Mid length and sleeveless dresses with a cotton scarf is the ideal wear for a summer lunch or a day trip with your friends!
 
Here comes the Sun! – Kedia Jackets
“Sometimes wearing minimal clothing in the summer can be harsh to our skin, especially in India” says LFW designer Urvashi Joneja. With the harshness of the sun, pigmentation and strong tans are never favoured. Urvashi’s recommendation this summer is the cotton kedia jacket. “it’s light, it protects the skin and it’s a great garment for girls who are conscious of their arms or upper body”.  Match this jacket with a simple dress or Maxi and it makes the perfect combination for a protected summer in the sun!
 
Block heels
Thinking about comfort for your feet is always important but when it comes to sporting those maxi dresses and long skirts you need some elevation. LFW Designer Veda Raheja is all for the block heels. “they give you that elevation and are extremely comfortable”. This season raise the bar with some wonderful block heels. Florals, pastel and even pop tint block heels are a great addition to your outfit.
