Celebs go dressy with the trendy trench
Trenchcoat-inspired dresses seem to be the new fad for every fashionista. From actor Deepika Padukone turning heads in a Michael Kors trench dress at the New York Fashion Week to Kajol upping her style game in a printed trench dress, the takers for this stylish outfit have increased manifold. Fashion experts agree that the trench dress is, indeed, the hot new trend. “It’s cool and contemporary. The concept of outerwear turning into a dress is catching up and these beautiful ladies are giving us style inspirations with their bold looks,” says designer Urvashi Kaur. “I like the way Indian designers are giving the trench dresses an interesting twist with prints and motifs — they add to the look.” The other reason why trench dresses are doing well is that they’re perfect for the Indian body type. Designer Rina Dhaka says, “Trench dresses flatter all body types, and if paired with heels, they look sassy.” However, like all outfits, it has to be styled right for the best effect. “The length of the dress should be short, so that you can show off your legs. Keep accessories to a minimum and wear heels,” advises stylist Vikram Seth.
