I Wear My Sari with Jeans Guide to Spring/Summer Trends in Indian/Pakistani Fashion

Wedding season is upon us and that means it’s time to break out the sarees, lenghas and suits! This is our guide to help you navigate through this year’s crop of runway shows and keep up with the latest trends. Some of our favourite trends for the upcoming Spring/Summer season include:

1. Florals. Florals were all over the Spring/Summer runways this year, as well as showing up on Fall/Winter collections, Florals are an easy way to transition between seasons and get the most wear out of your outfit. Throw on a woven floral shawl for cooler temperatures and added depth.

3. Bold Prints. Stripes and houndstooth, as well as more traditional Indian prints are all the rage this season. Try mixing prints with contrasting or complementary colours to add more edge and depth to your outfit. A printed shawl, dupatta, or blouse is an easy way to to achieve this look.

4. Monochrome. Sleek and sophisticated, yet very current.- you can’t go wrong with black and white. Have fun with this trend and mix textures, such as sheer layers, mixing fabrics (silk, brocade, leather). Or add colour to your outfit with bold accessories.

5. Modern cuts. Don’t be afraid to incorporate western silhouettes to your outfit, such as pants, tap shorts, and peplum tops (see the Shantanu and Nikhil outfit above for a great peplum lengha blouse).
