Here are some of the chicest trends that can be worn by anyone. Tanvi Malik, a fashion expert and the co-founder of a fashion e-commerce platform, shares the most exciting trends to keep in mind while dressing up this year.

Bold and bright: Every colour that is upbeat, sunny and pop, is in this season. Pepper your everyday wardrobe with bold and bright colours like blazing red, beaming mustard and peppy pinks. If you want to keep it muted, pick a palette of pastels. A colour like sea foam green feels fresh and pairs beautifully with neutrals.

Defined silhouettes: The key to looking stylish with a curvy figure is to define your look and not dress in frumpy, shapeless, straight silhouettes. Go for wrap styles. From the figure-flattering design to its versatility and ease of wearing,the wrap silhouette scores high in every aspect. Feminine, romantic and equal parts modest and trendy, wrap styles are absolutelyfool-proof!

Cold shoulders: This season, pick the chicer cousin of the off-shoulder. While the trend has been around for a while, it’s safe to say that the cold-shoulder trend is here to stay. It’s fun, feminine, flirty and can perk up even the most basic jeans and maxi dresses. Own the trend with embellishments and fresh prints.

Summer stripes: Seamlessly slipping into our wardrobes from one season to another, stripes are officially the new neutrals. Make this classic pattern yours by picking up fresh and bright coloured stripes. Think unusual matching like grey and yellow, or for that matter, a variegated rainbow. Don’t shy away from colour or even the direction of the stripes. Horizontal, diagonal or all mixed, own the pattern your way.

Skater dresses: While the skater dress isn’t a fresh trend, it’s making quite a splash this year. With its A-line cut, this style makes it easy for plus-sized girls to accentuate their curves. Printed or solid, embroidered or embellished, Skater dresses are an easy-breezy ace up the curvy girl’s sleeve for summer.
