Have you visited Jaipur Literature Festival yet? The place where all the renowned thinkers and writers get together and engage in interesting conversations with each other and the audiences. Well, apart from the literature enthusiasts, great minds, celebrities, there is one more category that is getting more and more prominent with every passing year at JLF: ‘The Fashionistas’.
No, these are not the people who work in the fashion industry, these are the ones who look at JLF as a place to alight at and introduce new fashion trends through their vivid experiments with style. Apart from the trends of printed colourful pyjamas especially the Rajasthani prints and bold color blocking, there is a lot more to see at Jaipur Lit Fest this time.
So in case you ain’t a literature person (and are scared to admit it) and did not pick this month’s Vogue from the street, visit JLF to witness a glut of snazzy people pulling off the most eccentric trends this winter !
1. Bootie Call
Be it ankle or knee high, leather or suede, the sexy boots are definitely a roaring trend among women and even little girls !
2. Getting Baggy
The monochromes and blacks were out as far as bags are concerned. What took JLF by a storm were quirky prints, spring florals, multi-hued Tote bags, shoulder bags and the evergreen jholas with graphics, tropical and geometric prints. However, we would have loved to catch some hand held and boxy bags apart from the standard cross-bodies !
3. Knit a bit
Although the summer scarves in neon colors and attractive prints are always refreshing to look at, the bright ‘knitted’ ones were a total charmer at JLF. It was indeed a pleasure to see men and women both teaming them impeccably and outshining a lot many.
4. Dare Denim
We all know that denim shirts, jackets are back in vogue ! People were seen sporting them in different shades and styles. Some paired them with scarves while others went with the plain jean look 😉
It was good to see the Ripped Jeans but they could have been paired with a pair of sneakers to complete the effortless sporty look.
5. Airy Berets & Tangy Turbans
Nothing beats a street style look of the perforated berets ! Green, red, black, blue, these chic headgears were all over the place definitely calling for a new trend before spring knocks at our doors 😉
Men were seen wearing bright colored turbans which surely added a statement to their otherwise simple look.
6. Spring in Sneakers
The time is gone for the standard branded single colored shoes, now the youth is wrapped in all sorts of prints when it comes to sneakers. Both boys and girls were seen walking around in sneakers with contrasting colors like purple & orange, in prints like florals, tribal, etc.
7. Funky Jackets
Who says winters are dull?? These guys make sure it is brighter and happier than summers or any other season with the quirky jackets with eccentric prints and patterns which reminded us of Salman Khan in Maine Pyar Kiya with added colors !
Where people are almost in a competition to flaunt their gorgeous and sometimes over the top fashion sense, the feather in the cap is the expected arrival of Sonam Kapoor at JLF tomorrow. While everyone is wondering what has Sonam Kapoor got to add to this intellectual festival, the crowd tomorrow will say it all.
So are you ready to visit Jaipur Fashion Festival tomorrow?
