Puffed sleeves have gone big, and it’s all about glamour in exquisite fur and bright colors. As seen in DKNY, Chanel, Burberry, and Emilio Pucci, jackets and coats have taken a back seat this winter.

Voguish Velvet

Velvet is by far the newest, freshest and hottest trend to flaunt this season. Velvety designs, pajama suits, and sultry off-the-shoulder numbers are just what you need to turn into a shimmering goddess of class. The pieces showcased by Valentino, Baja East, Givenchy, and Alberta Ferretti are literally mesmerizing. This winter, drape yourself in velvet and glisten with glamour!

Calvin Klien, Dries van noten, Isabel Marant, and Balenciaga have given us some serious fashion goals to try out at the office. Bottom line is, your professional style for work is about to undergo a very interestingly masculine change, and it will be utterly and absolutely refreshing.

Haute Couture meets Brocade

Chanel, DKNY, Christian Dior, Burberry, Gucci and various others have gone all out this season and given up on the minimalism that was so strong in spring. Talk about extravagance, panache and glamour, and then mix it all up to make one outfit. Winter is all about putting on your haute couture and going out to Balls and Galas and formal evenings. Well, here’s your pick of the best evening wear in lush brocade, glamorous cuts and glittery embroidery.

Dreams of Satin

Make sure you don’t deprive your wardrobe of satin this season.

Sporty is the new Chic!

This winter sporty refers to a refreshingly new infusion of ski style and jersey jumpsuits, calling for an infectiously smart day time look. The pieces put forward by Lacoste, Calvin Klein, and Courreges are literally a sport trend lover’s delight and a great way to revamp your look, to make it more minimal and sharp.

Military Vibes Are Strong!

Ladies, the military jacket is the one fashion staple that can add an instant dose of overwhelming glamour to your look. It screams exclusivity, panache and raw glitzy glamour!

hatchling_neckline2.jpgThere are two kinds of approaches to fashion trends. At one hand, fashion might become rampant just like molten lava, spreading out at a monumental pace. On the other hand, it might hit the masses with a dribbling impact, through which you might observe someone carrying a fashion item and think, ‘that’s impressive’ and then again you notice it another time elsewhere, and it echoes and abruptly you just can’t resist observing it.

Hint the latest hatchling neckline, which is also known as the ‘baby turtle’ in the fashion world - a style that is quite appealing, however not as much as a polo neck and not at all crimped over. Consider it as your latest neckline, a pleasant shift from the spotless, crisp white shirt freedom that has been in for decades.

Amidst this year’s spring collection, the neckline style appeared at Marni in all sort of Lego-shine and we’ve also witnessed the hatchling neckline at Isabel Marant in abstracted white ribs coordinated with the trousers made from silver foil. And not to forget, the style at Valentino, where it was carried out in charismatic speckled black suede and last but not the least, in abrupt silk organza at Dior.

The question is why everybody loves the trend. Our answer: it’s quite obvious as it looks distinctly contemporary and is absolutely perfect for masking sagging neck skin due to increasing age.

It was amazing to see the trend captured in the form of jewelry as well, as we’ve seen it at Olivier Rousteing who clasped his BALMAINARMY in carved hatchlings of gleaming gold. We admit the style didn’t look complacent, however it looked absolutely stunning.

The best part is that you can count on the trend continuing into the next autumn and ahead. Remember, the trend has a long life span.

How to flaunt this look?

hatchling_neckline.jpgSome of the ways through which you can carry your hatchling neckline with ultimate style includes wearing it up with hair not tightly tied and with easy going adornments which will assure that the style doesn’t feel stifling.

What we’ve witnessed on runways amidst Marni presentation, the neckline builds an indispensable base layer beneath nearly all the looks. To combat the winter chill, you can use your hatching underneath your summer attires. Besides, the inclusion of sunnies for an ensemble prepares one for sunnier climate.

What we adored about Isabel Marant hatching tops was the 90’s outline when coupled with fume-imbued pants made of gold foil. You can even opt for a bare shoulder along with a hatchling neck just like Christine Centenera to blend two trends into one.

Another great way to carry your hatchling is to wear it up with an A-line skirt to add depth and grace to your look. If you are someone who cannot compromise on jewelry for any style, you can take a cue from Camille Charriére presentation that included a stylish geometric pendant along with the conventional hatchlings.

Honestly, you can go as creative as you want and it’s entirely up to you how you carry the trend with ultimate finesse and decorum.
