Trends in Bottom Wear 2012

If your wardrobe still has just blue jeans as bottom wear, then girl you need a style check! Fashion is ever changing and you’ve got to keep yourself updated if you don’t want to look like you’re from the previous generation. Jeans will always remain our favourite, but it’s time you added a few other stuffs to your closet. Here’s a list..

Palazzo Pants

These are long trousers with extremely wide legs flaring out from the waist. Palazzo pants were very popular in the 40’s and 60’s and came back with a bang on this year’s spring-summer runaways. Be in solid shades or pretty prints, palazzo pants are very comfortable and versatile –they cover up as well as flaunt, as and when the need be.

Cigarette Trousers

Cigarette trousers are body hugging trousers that are often high waisted and cropped at the ankle. Mostly tailored in cotton and elastane, cigarette pants give a sleek look. If you’re blessed with an hourglass shape then this should be on your immediate shopping list.

Pencil skirts

This slim fitting skirt with narrow cut waist seems to be a hit with the woman of power. Sleek, stylish and classy, pencil skirts accentuate your waistline and pelvis. There maybe variations in length but the perfect size is the one that ends in the knee. Pencil skirts often come with interesting twists like the peplum waist.

High waist skirts

These skirts are worn from the mid riff and end in the thigh giving the effect of a short skirt, but more sophisticated by far. Unlike pencil skirts, these flare from the waist. High waisted skirts look extremely classy when paired with cropped jackets.

Pastel jeans

Well I never said you should abandon your jeans did I? Only this time when you stock up on jeans, get a couple of pastel shade ones. Think powder pink or lilac or mint green.

Boyfriend Shorts

A new hit among the people who like to keep it short –the boyfriend shorts add an androgynous twist to a feminine style. Boyfriend shorts extend till the knee and the cut is very similar to men’s shorts.

Decoding Tribal Fashion

The rich culture of the natives determines the cultural heritage of a place. Their richness of culture is reflected not only through their art and music but also their clothing and jewellery. It’s marvelous how these primordial tribes made fashion happen at a time when the human race was only grasping the meaning of progress. Today, designers from all over the world are taking inspiration from the blueprints they left behind.

The earthy designs, metallic texture and vibrant colours are what tribal fashion is famous for. The bold prints in highly eye catching colours set this fashion genre apart from the rest. Sometimes we sport tribal fashion without even realizing it. Animal prints, geometric shapes, threadwork, weaves, bead work and ethnic designs all come under the umbrella concept of tribal fashion.

This season, tribal fashion is all about weaves and prints. The Burberry 2012 men’s collection has a host of outfits in prints inspired by the Aztec and American Indians. Donna Karan’s collection for women’s tribal fashion is based on a dark palette and relaxed patterns that make it wearable during the summer. Paul and Joe’s odd prints in vibrant colours were also a hit with the women.

Donning tribal fashion can be quite tricky and it is absolutely important to keep certain things in mind in order to do full justice to the style. For example, if your tribal outfit is brightly coloured and printed, then the only other thing that you’d need to complete the look is a pair of sexy sandals. If you intend to wear rustic tribal jewellery, then maybe that bright top should wait. If tribal outfits seem too loud for you , you can still incorporate the tribal element into your ensemble by sporting a bag or belt in tribal design.
