Authored article by Alpana Razdan, Founder Attic Salt

It's the time of the year when the temperatures are soaring; linen, whites, pastels and florals take over our wardrobe. With jeans being stored at the back, one often pulls out their favourite summer dresses to embrace the heat. From amped-up corsetry and luxurious underpinnings to lace-trimmed nightgowns and entirely sheer evening dresses, metallic, white and cargo. Vimarsh and Alpana Razdan, the founders of Attic Salt discuss some key trends and how to style them for Spring and Summer 2023.

1) Metallics

Metallics are a versatile and fun trend that can be incorporated into various outfits and accessories. Whether you prefer a subtle or bold approach, there are many ways to rock the metallic trend for Spring and Summer 2023.

How to style it:

For a subtle take on the trend, pair a metallic blouse with jeans or metallic cargo pants with a basic top.

For a bolder look, try wearing a head-to-toe metallic outfit. When opting for a metallic trend, keep the rest of your makeup and footwear simple to avoid overwhelming the eye.

2) Cargos

Cargos, the other big trend for Spring and summer 2023, can also be dressed up for a party or a special occasion. Though often associated with a casual utilitarian style, feel free to experiment with different colours and fabrics when styling cargo for a party. Metallic or satin cargo can add a touch of luxury to your outfit, while bold colours can make a statement.

How to style it:

Styling cargo for a party can be fun and an unexpected way to add a touch of edge to your outfit. Wear with a dressy top such as a sequin blouse or a silk camisole and add heels to make the look dressy and feminine instantly. Adding accessories like statement jewellery or a clutch can also help dress up the cargo pants.

3) White

White is a classic and versatile colour which will continue to be perfect for Spring and Summer 2023; here are some new ways to style and incorporate white into your style to stand out.

How to style it:

Monochromatic white from head to toe is a bold and chic trend. You can, however, mix and match different shades and textures of white or add layers to create dimension to your outfit. A sliver of sequin, and you are ready to hop into a party with style and panache. White dresses are a must-have for this season. Whether it is a flowy maxi dress, a structured sheath dress or a playful mini dress, white can be dressed up or down for any occasion.

I always believe the best way for a white outfit to stand out is with a touch of a statement, like a bold colour blocking of white with black.. try adding a multidimensional corsage on a white outfit in a colour-blocking black, and you are ready to make a statement. Add some statement jewellery or a statement bag to add personality to your outfit.

4) Sequins

Though they have been here forever, Sequins as a trend will always be prime. It is one of the most loved trends and go-to options for a party and a celebration.

How to style it:

Let us check on new, fresh, and sophisticated ways to style sequins. Opt for. sequin blazer to add some sparkle and glamour to your outfit. You can pair it with jeans and a T-shirt for a casual look or wear it over a dress for a more formal accession. This summer, remember to wear an oversized blazer which most brands are making these days to drape casually over the shoulder on top of a bustier. This will immediately make you look chic.

We have seen celebrities on the red carpet wear sequin dresses with bold patterns and textures; sequin corsages of different sizes and shapes create a multidimensional effect. We've also seen sequin dresses with asymmetrical cuts, plunging necklines, and open backs that add a touch of glamour and sexiness to the outfit. Sequins are a timeless element in fashion and will likely continue to appear on the red carpet in the future. When styling sequins, keep your look simple and your hair tied up in a sleek bun or braid, and watch out for all the compliments that will come your way.
