FBB Super60 Sale: 6 MUST-HAVES for a Trendy ’17
Every shop in town has the end of season sale going. I chose to drop in at Fashion Big Bazaar, because guess what? This time around, some of the most fashionable merchandise were available at amazing discounts of up to 60%, thanks to the FBB Super 60 Sale! So… What, we should just grab everything that’s soon going to be ‘last season’, just because it’s available at a discount, or because it’s reasonably priced at FBB? ABSOLUTELY NOT! My store visit helped me pick some items that, I think, will totally match the fashion trends of 2017, which is why they will be gone in the blink of an eye! So, here are my recommended 6 MUST-HAVES for a Trendy ’17. Gotta catch ’em all!
FBB Super60 Sale: 6 MUST-HAVES for a Trendy ’17
I actually picked quite a few items which I thought will, and should, be in vogue in 2017. Of these, I narrowed it down to just six items. These are some vital additions to any closet, and will let you become a trendsetter, wherever you go. The best thing is, I didn’t have to spend a fortune, thanks to the FBB Super60 Sale, and yet, look like a million bucks! Whether or not they are on discount, they will soon go out of stock, because they’ll remain in fashion for the rest of the year, and are hence the must-haves for a trendy ’17 according to me!
1. Slit Skirt
I can rave about this skirt for many reasons. I’ll start with the fact that it’s really trendy. Cutouts did extremely well in the New York Fashion Week of September 2016, and these have made their way to the new year, as well. And, this amazing long skirt that I found at FBB fitted the bill perfectly. It has a side slit that goes up to the knee. I consider the calf of the leg is its best part because the problem area usually lies above the knees. So, this pretty skirt reveals the best part of the leg, in an elegant way, without being too in-your-face. Plus, I loved the sleek material of the skirt and the slender cut. It lies gently on the curves and creates a lean silhouette, instead of bulking up like long skirts often do.
2. Layered Kurta-Top
I found this at the ethnic section, but found the design quite different from any conventional cut of Indian ethnic. What’s interesting is that the hemline at the back is a long as a salwar, while the front ends like a top. It also has all these layers, accentuating all the flattering parts of the body while smoothening out the unwanted ones, and creating all this asymmetry. Such a piece represents high fashion, because, fun fact, asymmetry needs more material; plus, all the cloth layers! Besides asymmetry has always ruled the runway. Team it with leggings, or wear a lovely pair of brightly coloured pants. Have fun creating Indo-western looks with it, because this incredible item totally has the potential!
3. Yellow Pants
Loved the yellow pants in Look #2? I absolutely fell in love with its look and how it felt on my skin. Come summer ’17, different shades of yellow will become the big thing, according to Bollywood’s celebrity stylist Lepakshi Ellawadi. Since I have a thing for colourful pants (I own cantaloupe jeans), I loved the idea of a pair in bright yellow. I used it in a western outfit, as well as with my layered kurta-top. The yellow adds a pop to any outfit, and its fit is perfect for both western and indo-ethnic looks. The material, too, is great for spring and summer, allowing your skin to breathe! Don’t worry about your complexion. Wear it with a light shade during the day and something bright for an evening look!
4. Floral Printed Top
Graphic florals are going to be big, according to the fashion predictions for 2017. These are not the invisible, repetitive floral patterns, but prominent flowers. All the Italian designers, from Gucci to Dolce & Gabanna brought the flowers back on the ramp, and the other designers have not stayed back. So, you need to scoop this floral printed black top from the shelves of FBB while the stock lasts. It has a black background, with loud, almost fluorescent flowers all across. There’s a lovely translucent later on the sides, which I found adorable. The sleeveless top also shows off the shoulders beautifully. it’s perfect for a summer evening. Don’t let this cute floral printed top go away!
5. Sheer Shrug
‘Sheer’ has been a statement on the red carpet for several years now, and this trend is here to stay. And ever since Pooja Hegde wore a see-through lace top for the Goa Film Festival, it has been catching the attention of Indian fashionistas, too. See-through outfits help create a really sultry look, showing off some skin, and leaves as much to the imagination as the wearer wants. If you’re like me and don’t want to go too bold, just pick this simple net-and-lace shrug. It is one of my recommended must-haves for a Trendy ’17. Jazz up a simple top by throwing this on, or wear it with a sleeveless dress of a dark colour. So simple, so elegant! Grab it at FBB Super60 Sale and just have fun!
6. Summer Jacket
I LOVED this summer jacket! It doesn’t button up in front; instead, the large flaps gather in the front, somewhat like a front-open mantle, and creates a bit of ruffle. As you know, these isolated ruffles were everywhere, and they have made to 2017. But, that’s not all that attracted me about this jacket. the brown border along the edges of the black jacket gives it a really dressy feel. the elastic et the back makes it sit at the waist gently. And, it’s particularly appropriate for places like Mumbai where the winters aren’t too biting. Or, if you’re like me, and want some layers in the AC, then this is perfect! Comfy, versatile and fashionable – it’s an essential piece to add to your wardrobe for 2017!
There were also some of the other items at FBB Super60 Sale which I found worth a place on the list of must-haves for a Trendy ’17: a) the winter salwar suit, which is like a wholesome outfit for Indian women who are always on the run; b) the faux-lace palazzo, which is form-fitting, and has convinced me that palazzos are here to stay, no matter what the TV ads say; c) the faux-lace dress, which, like the palazzos, a lovely lace outfit with a lining beneath to let you enjoy the pattern of the magic of thread, without revealing anything; d) navy striped top with lace shoulders, because both stripes and laces are in, and showing the shoulders is something I love; and e) the oversized hoodies from the boys section, not only because long sleeves are rocking the runway this season, but also because hoodies is love! So, sale or no sale, I suggest you visit your nearest FBB store and take your pick today, because, trust me, they are flying off the shelves, and they WILL be #GoneIn60Seconds!
