Top Ten fashion trends for Spring 2009

 

2009 Spring Trends

2009 Spring Trends

Spring is here at last with some exciting trends-a lot of which we’ll all be able to pull off, no matter what our body type. I think the look in general will be soft and extra-feminine. Check out some of the most interesting trends:

 

  1. Spring is all about colors, so make sure you wear plenty of it. Vivid colors like hot pink and electric blue will be really big.
  2. In vogue this season is the little white dress for its glamour quotient.
  3. Feminine floral prints are also going to make a comeback this spring and butterfly motifs and prints will also be quite popular.
  4. Accessories are going to be really big this season. Opt for long oversized necklaces, big bangles and bold jewelry, stylish handbags.
  5. Jewel encrusted clothing are also going to make a come back and will not be restricted to evening wear. In 2009 they return brighter, bolder, and more elegant. This time pieces are not just embellished but often completely encrusted by jewels; the feeling is luxurious, exotic, and yet the glamour remains somewhat understated.
  6. In Spring fashion tends to get a little more revealing; the combination of sheer and opaque fabric will work wonders. 2009’s sheer pieces are a mixture of the soft and feminine.
  7. Flairs, ruffles and bows are also smart options for spring. Look for bows at the shoulders and hips and ruffles at hemlines.
  8. High waisted skirts and pants will make a style statement this season, so make sure you own them.
  9. Single shouldered dresses and tops as well as asymmetric shoulder-lines have made a huge return in 2009. Its versatility and endless possibilities to wear it makes it one of the hottest trends.
  10. Bohemian look will make a powerful statement this season. The best way to pull this off this Spring is to pair a bohemian styled piece with something a bit more conservative like a beige skirt or vest.

Each new season brings with it a sense of excitement. I’m looking forward to vivid colors, bold accessories and feminine prints. Do visit us at www.CarmaWorld.com for an exclusive collection of apparels and accessories and let us know your take on these trends?

So many weddings to attend and you don’t want to spend too much on jewelry, neither repeat your stuff. Well, Costume jewelry is the easy solution.

Have a bright outfit and you don’t want to wear that gold chain again….well match it up with costume jewelry in the same shade.

Don’t want to move around wearing millions around your neck… costume jewelry again provides a safer option.

Costume jewelry has gained tremendous popularity recently owing to its versatility and variety, myriad hues and affordability. It offers a cost effective yet glamorous option for those with a penchant for ornaments. It helps in keeping up with the latest trends without burning a whole in your pocket as well as providing a safer option. Real jewelry can be a sound investment in uncertain times. But for most of us, the new reality calls for faux — small indulgences that can make an old frock seem new.

Also known as imitation jewelry, fashion jewelry and junk jewelry, it comes in various shapes, sizes and texture and is made of materials as diverse as metal, glass, stones, crystals and even plastic. The variety costume jewelry can offer is unparalleled. You can find something to beautify each part of your body. From necklaces, earrings and hair ornaments to nose rings, toe rings, anklets, maang tikka, armlets and bangles… name it and you have it!

Khan vs. Khan

Aamir KhanCall them arch rivals or good competitors, the Shahrukh Khan vs. Aamir Khan War has been fought time and again over the last decade. Surprisingly there has been no clear winner because both SRK and Aamir Khan, being the perfectionist they are, have a humungous fan following.

With the slight delay in the release of Shahrukh’s Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi it’s again set to clash with Aamir’s Ghajini this year. The two films are also the first releases this year of both the Khans after their two respective successful films last year — Om Shanti Om and Taare Zameen Par. Both turned out to be huge commercial hits.

With the two biggest movies of the year about to clash at box office, the actors are not leaving any stone unturned in the promotion of their respective movies. Aamir Khan recently asked theatre staff of Big Cinemas and PVR, which is playing Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, to adopt the Ghajini hair cut. It is evident: you are watching Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi with the aura of Ghajini around you!

Asked what SRK thought of Aamir Khan’s recent strategy for Ghajini, Shahrukh Khan claimed, “I think it is a good strategy. You take the biggest brand in the country that is SRK and then use that platform to publicize yourself. I think Aamir rocks. The problem is that I cannot use any another brand because there is no one bigger than me”.

The cold war between the duos can very well be estimated from their comments. Addressing the media, at the launch function of Filmfare magazine’s latest issue Shahrukh said “There cannot be any competition with me. I’m the biggest brand in the country. I am always there to endorse for everyone, but the saddest part is that no one is there to endorse for me as there is no brand bigger than me.”

Reacting to Shahrukh’s statement, Aamir said: “He has been speaking about himself for last 20 years so there is nothing new about it.Shahrukh Khan

Well the Bollywood industry is sure going to be in a fix, with both the Khans drawing swords at each other, but despite the result, as to who wins and who looses out, the viewers are sure to have a great time. Keep up the good work, Khans! We love you both!

Bridal Fashion – What’s Hot

CarmaWorld Bridal Fashion

Wedding is the biggest dream event for girls in India. This is the d-day when all the eyes would be on her and she wants to make the most of it in everyway, after all she is the queen today. Marriage being the most extravagant affairs calls for lavish celebrations and vibrant dresses. Here are some handy tips to help you hunt for the best and trendiest wedding ensemble.

Colors

The Hot colors this season are jewel tones and metallic colors like Gold, Silver, Copper, Bronze, Emerald Green, and Blue. Burgundy, Cherry Red, Brick and Wine color are some other safe options. Pastel shades continue to be popular as well.

Designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee vouches for myriad hues of crushed diamonds, sapphires and rubies, brought alive with the luster of liquid gold, silver and copper and textured, to work fabulously with Indian skin tones and features.

Fabrics

 

Banarsi koras, silks, tissues, organza and brocades are some of the most popular choices. Flowy chiffons and georgettes are also in great demand.

Embroidery

The challenge here is to smartly blend classical with the contemporary– so you see streamlined fits with traditional intricate embroidery—in dull antique gold or metallic. Kundan work is popular and so are mukaish, zardozi, mirror, gota and pearl work. Add crystals for that extra dazzle and you have that perfect look.

The Silhouette

The silhouette is tight and neatly cut and extremely feminine. The fish-cut skirt is popular, as is the A-line ghagara with a fitted choli. The emphasis, according to Neeta Lulla is on the shoulders and back.

 Accessories

 Maangtikas and bindis are going to be really popular this season and so is Diamond jewelry. Jadau and kundan jewelry are also in vogue. Neeta Lulla recommends classical jewelry because she believes that jewelry lasts whereas fashion doesn’t. Kaleeras are also a rage this wedding season, so make sure that you do buy one for yourself.

Body Tattoos / Stick-ons designed to serve as arm bands, necklaces or body ornaments are gaining popularity and are in great demand today.

To complete the look, go for ethnic silk clutch bags and comfortable footwear.

 

 

 

According to Neeta Lulla “Elegance is the buzzword and a lavish use of fabric, textures and the dupatta in different drapes are very in. I am even doing two dupattas, one for head and one for the body”.

Designer Manish Malhotra suggests a “sans-accessories-high-on-costume” look. According to him, this wedding season brides can play down the accessories and make their outfits the prime focus. After all, Priyanka made a bold fashion statement for brides-to-be in “Dostana” with an intricately embellished lehenga which had a traditional yet contemporary twist with long slits.

 

 

Your wedding day is meant just for you. That is why you need to shine and look your very best, so no matter what you wear just top it up with oodles of confidence and you will certainly leave a mark.

Woo your woman this Christmas

Looking for a Christmas gift for the woman in your life…? Well you need not look any further. Here are a few tips to help you sweep her off her feet.

 

  • Before you start the gift hunt, find out about her likes and dislikes. Observe her dressing style, her favorite colors, the brands she likes most, her preferred home decor and most of all her hobbies.
  • Here’s a “can’t lose” gift idea — Go for a personalized gift. You have umpteen options —record a song exclusively for her, dedicate her a poem, sketch her a nice portrait or carve out a beautiful box for her.
  • Next comes jewelry. Jewelry has always intrigued women and I’ve never known a woman who didn’t love jewelry. Do check the latest jewelry trends before you buy, because the traditional gold jewelry is no longer fancied by women. Go for chic stone studded, pearl or silver pieces.
  • Chocolates and perfumes are also popular gift choices for women. But when it comes to perfumes, make sure it is her favourite fragrance.
  • Accessories make an excellent gift for women who are in tune with the trends. Pick up a stylish clutch bag, a nice stole or hot stick-on body tattoos for her. She would simply love these.
  • Home decor items like wall hangings or paintings will please her if she is an artist at heart. Make sure you know the style she likes.
  • And last but not the least; nothing will please her more than a candle light Christmas Eve dinner, just for the two of you.
