1. Sarees – Fabrics, styles and prints

In 2016, light weight fabrics like chiffon and georgette are going to be loved. Some new fabrics like art silk tried to conquer the fashion space but couldn’t and we’re quite glad about that. There’s nothing better than light fabrics that make you look slim in sarees.

Instead of usual drapes, the lehenga style sarees would go great in 2016. They bring the very required change to your wardrobe already filled with tons of sarees.


Embroidery is going to take a setback once again. Digital and abstract prints will be the new favorites. Party wear saree outfits would have statement jewellery along with ecstatic prints.

2. Suits – No salwars and churidaars

Yes. You read it right. Ordinary salwars and churidaars have become outdated. Pallazos, harems, ghaagras, straight trousers have replaced them. Ladies note! You need to find a tailor who is adept at stitching such kind of bottoms and not those usual old ordinary salwars and churidaars.

Long kameez will be loved. Short kurtas have gone to the backstage for a long long time. We don’t think they would come back in fashion for years.

Instead of lehengas or anarkalis, heavily embroidered and beautifully put together gowns would be loved in this year. There would be a lovely blend of maxi dresses and gowns which will be loved by Indian divas.
