Have you ever entered a store determined to buy just one thing, but many hours later returned home loaded with shopping bags full of everything but the item you had originally planned to buy?
Stores these days have an extensive collection of all products. Shapes, sizes, colours, fabrics, they have a wide variety of it all. It's easy to get lost in this colourful and inviting world of exciting new clothes, but is it really worth the time, money and effort? Here's a better alternative, why not check out the collections online, for free, in the comfort of your home before actually going to the store? Check out Crostitch to know what I'm talking about!
To help you shop smarter for the upcoming wedding season, here are some of the latest trends in the market, along with examples from the boutiques on Crostitch!
- Unexpected Colour Combinations: The easiest way to make even the most plain outfit stand out is to pick an exciting colour combination. No, I don't mean pairing neon colours together to look like you're ready for a fancy dress party! Try an earthy brown with a fresh mint shade, or a yellow with royal blue like this suit by Anubhav & Sneha or even yellow with a gorgeous subtle purple like this lehnga by the same boutique!

- Bandh- Gala necks: Move over low necklines, bandh- gala necks are back in fashion! They are sophisticated and classy, and the best part is, they look good on all body types. Bandhgala necks give you freedom to really explore detailed handiwork in terms of the craftsmanship done, by forgoing on the need to wear neck jewellery. Check out this beautiful piece by Var- Shi!

- Straight cut silhouettes: For a very long time now, Anarkalis with their voluminous silhouettes have ruled the Indian fashion scene. Things are slowly changing towards a more streamlined, form- fitting shape of clothes and you should definitely get onto this style wagon asap! Clean, well- structured outfits add a certain level of sophistacation to the outfit, compared to the often cumbersome anarkali suits. For example, here is a quirky kurti by Sabrang!
