Fashion Flash: Manish Malhotra 2017

Bollywood’s golden child, Manish Malhotra, sent some truly fantastic looks down the runway this month in his first fashion show of 2017. A few of our favorites, including some notes on how to translate trends for your closet, are below:

For the Gents:

Black is always in style. Pair a black sherwani top with black pants for a modern, monochromatic look. A snug-fitting kurta evokes a hipster vibe, and a pop of color in a dupatta or pocket square adds visual interest.

   

For the Ladies:

Metallics are back, and Indowestern gowns are still on-trend. We love this look for a reception — it has glamour and ease of movement, a timeless silhouette, and SPARKLES! A golden salwar kameez is a classic option for wedding guests who want to sparkle without outshining the bride. Brides wanting to capture the essence of MM’s look but looking for something only a shopping click away might consider this number by Badgley Mischka:

Turmeric is experiencing a rockstar moment in the food world, and the color yellow is popping up in our closets. Think you can’t rock yellow with your complexion? Think again! From mustard to buttercup yellow, this trend works on everyone. Consider a mustard yellow lehenga your new Indian wardrobe staple. Still not convinced? How about updating your classic black sari with a fresh yellow blouse!
