What you will wear this winter

Five looks to adopt


If you have been following the fashion pages of t2, you already know this winter is going to be pink-ed out. Pink needn’t only be candyfloss and frivolous. Sailex shows you how to be all grown-up and glamorous in pink.


Nothing says old-school chic like a midi-length organdy dress. Sunday mass goes mainstream on the runway! And Nimish Shah demonstrates how to mix yesteryear with now.


If there’s one piece you need to buy this winter, make it an indie jacket. It’s our LBD. High on India’s rich textile heritage, this jacket can lift any look. And who better than Rahul Mishra to do the honours!


Button-up is a major trend worldwide. Ladies, are you ready to cover the cleavage yet? Nishka Lulla’s new look, now in its second season, celebrates this mood of being all prim and proper.


No trend report, be it summer or winter, is complete without a nod to florals. This season is no different. This Ritu Kumar look is doubly special because it combines the so-now print with the so-now cape.

the changing face of the sari

the trying-too-hard sari

WHO: Nikhil Thampi
WHAT: With the Kathakali dancer’s face as a chosen print, Nikhil tried too hard with his statement saris. Those knotted pallas made it look like a poor hungover version of Anamika Khanna’s.

the don’t-mess-with-me sari

WHO: Rahul mishra
WHAT: Sometimes it’s best not to mess with perfection. Rahul
Mishra did just that. His saris were unadulterated. Pure magic.

the avant garde sari

WHO: Amit Aggarwal
WHAT: Then there are those who twist every rule in the book and present a classic in a never-seen-before avatar. Amit Aggarwal went edgy and alternative.

the deconstructed sari

WHO: little shilpa
WHAT: The silk sari was draped in the most non-sari way possible. Styled with a hoodie, nipped and tucked!

the diy sari

WHO: payal khandwala
WHAT: Woven by master craftsmen, these silk saris were given a contemporary twist with collared shirts and leather Obi belts.
