Fashion Trends for the Year 2001

Denim BagFor the fashion conscious, constant upgradation of the wardrobe is necessary but then you needn't throw old clothes away. Every year has it own favorites when it comes to clothes and the year 2001 has a lot offer in terms of fashion. The eighties trends are back with a bang and it is the cool and hip look that will dominate the scene. Fashion will be fanciful and flowery yet simple. And the clothes will have straight cuts all the way.

Colour: Do away with all those dull and subtle colors for it is time for bold and vivid shades to invade your wardrobe. It will be bright colors all the way. Yellow, Orange, Gold, Magenta, Pink, Red and contrasting shades will be most preferred. Flower power of the seventies and eighties will be back in vogue and floral prints the best choice. Smooth and soft designs of the east coupled with the blossom prints in bright and happy colors could be worn throughout the year. Flashy graphic design patterns will be the biggest fashion trend of the season. Geometric prints in funky colors will be a favorite.

Collared topClothes: One will get to see a great deal of denim but the capri look will be out so do away with those jeans shorts and jackets. However those really old and worn out pairs of jeans can be worn. Tank tops and shirts in trendy necklines are really hot especially for teeny boppers. But then it is the cropped pants which take the cake. It is greatly preferred, for it can be worn all the year long. Made from cottons and polyester they can be accessoried with anything and everything from strappy sandals to sneakers. Skirts of late has begun to resurface. Rather than the short and sexy look it will be the long straight lined skirts this season. But more flowy and flared skirts with the sheer look will be worn extensively. Leather trousers and jackets especially faux leather which is the cheaper variety will also be preferred.

Party Dressing: Given the fact that Indian women prefer wearing sarees, this traditional Indian wear will retain it value especially in party circles. But for the more westernized there is the preferred black dress in both its long and short forms. But trying out pastel shades is one of the many options available. The pastel ball shirts can be worn calf length with a fitting top. And if you are the dress type go for those long strapless attires and charm all those out there.

Pegged heels Shoes: Thinner heels are in style this season but then don't throughway those chunky heels. Sometimes shoes give you a different look altogether and works to ones advantage. The pegged heels with delicate points gives a highly elegant look but then one has to carry herself well. The flat shoe and sabrina heel shoe are comfortable and can be worn with ease. Don't do away with the toe revealing strappy sandals for they go very well with any outfit.

Accessories: Even the most dull and uninspiring outfit can be given a new look by the right kind of accessories. One of the most essential items this season are belts made from leather and chain and they come in a variety of designs. The diamante belts can be worn around the waist or slung across the hip. Even the trendy denim belts give a youthful look to any attire. Beaded jewelry and hoop earrings which is the talk of the town go very well with both Indian and western outfits. Denim saddle bags and a range of various kinds of denim bags is bound to become a rage this year despite the strong presence of leather in the market.
