The unassuming baseball cap has got a nod of approval from across design houses this season. Tibi, Lacoste, DKNY and Rodarte have given a glamorous spin to its drab old sporty version, taking it forward from its luxe avatar.

Rihanna’s fondness towards the trend shows that they are more than just sun-protecting accessory. Likewise celebrities like Katrina Kaif, Miley Cyru, popularblogger Sussie Bubble have been sporting baseball caps. Amongst the men who can’t have enough of the trend are Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Johnny Depp.

Baseball caps can certainly give a va-va-voom spin to your casual as well as formal look! And the good news is that they are easy to style too.

Try teaming a printed flowy dress with a matching monotone beanie.

The pop-of-colour trend will take a whole new dimension when a bright cap gets teamed with muted hues.

Quick fix your bad hair days with a fun cap.

 

Tall order with maxi skirts

WHILE MAXI DRESSES have been a roar for some time, it is the moment of the maxi skirt now.

This close cousin of the maxi dress has climbed the sartorial style ladder real quick to become a hot favourite this summer. They are your best buddies this season simply because of the comfort and style quotient they provide without much thought required for styling them.

Needless to say, the runways are agog with the maxi skirt buzz. While international designers like Alice+Olivia and Milly have experimented with abstract prints and stripes, restricting the colour palette to minimal hues, designers back home, like Abraham and Thakore and Payal Khandwala, have used tribal patterns and bright colours in their versions of the maxi skirt. Anita Dongre has kept it rather simple and flowy in basic white.

In the celebrity circles, the trend was sported recently by Bollywood’s favourite Kareena Kapoor. Hollywood siren Natalie Portman was a picture of poise in her silver flared maxi skirt while style diva Sarah Jessica Parker looked stunning in her nautical-inspired stripped maxi skirt.

Style maxis skirts with short kurtas or fitted mono-colour tops and you are set to turn some heads. If your fancy permits, do try out a chunky neckpiece or stacked bangles. In footwear, stick to wedges instead of stilettos to prevent an odd fall.

Floral fix on flower clips

USING FLOWERS TO decorate hair is an ancient fashion obsession. The style has, however, continued to trickle its way through time and reinvented itself in the form of flower clips.

The appeal of this trend lies in the multiple dimensions that it can offer. It can be used to accentuate Western attire as well as ethnic clothes. Whether you embrace your girly self in flower clips teamed with dresses or pin them on a bun and paint a picture of elegance in a saree, flower clips help you look a class apart.

Vidya was seen posing pretty in a pink flower clip at a film promotion event recently. Do note, her lip colour agreed with her hair accessory while the rest of her look reflected a rather contrasting monochromatic play of stripes.
