The Indian Saree- Age old, part of India’s history and culture, the oldest dress form for women in this country.
The Indian Saree does the best portrayal of the desi-indian-girl. An Indian saree has come back with a bang and a boom to the fashion circuit. Shows on ethnicity and designers like Ritu Kumar have embodied the concepts of style and tradition by creating versions of the Indian Saree. A Sabyasachi saree is different and has a unique quotient to it, while a Satya Paul Saree would be colour-centric and pleasing to the eye that favours colour. Meanwhile you have not so high-end stores selling their special versions of the Indian Saree making it feasible to choose from various options and looks.

And this is a proud moment for India for having come a long way from having seven yard sarees as the only choice to today, having seventy inch long sarees as well! So, leaving the long and short of it to your style sensibility, here’s a desi-namaste until next time!

Top Ten fashion trends for Spring 2011



Check out some of the most interesting trends:
Spring is all about colors, so make sure you wear plenty of it. Vivid colors like hot pink and electric blue will be really big.
In vogue this season is the little white dress for its glamor quotient.
Feminine floral prints are also going to make a comeback this spring and butterfly motifs and prints will also be quite popular.
Accessories are going to be really big this season. Opt for long oversized necklaces, big bangles and bold jewelry, stylish handbags.
Jewel encrusted clothing are also going to make a come back and will not be restricted to evening wear. In 2009 they return brighter, bolder, and more elegant. This time pieces are not just embellished but often completely encrusted by jewels; the feeling is luxurious, exotic, and yet the glamour remains somewhat understated.
In Spring fashion tends to get a little more revealing; the combination of sheer and opaque fabric will work wonders. 2009’s sheer pieces are a mixture of the soft and feminine.
Flairs, ruffles and bows are also smart options for spring. Look for bows at the shoulders and hips and ruffles at hemlines.
High waisted skirts and pants will make a style statement this season, so make sure you own them.
Single shouldered dresses and tops as well as asymmetric shoulder-lines have made a huge return in 2009. Its versatility and endless possibilities to wear it makes it one of the hottest trends.
Bohemian look will make a powerful statement this season. The best way to pull this off this Spring is to pair a bohemian styled piece with something a bit more conservative like a beige skirt or vest.
Each new season brings with it a sense of excitement. I’m looking forward to vivid colors, bold accessories and feminine prints.
