New set of trends for Delhiitestrends

Style Statement

The culture of India is very rich and diverse. Every state differs in its cuisine, language, weather and apparel. But sharing its borders with Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan, and Haryana influences the language of the people as well as lifestyle in the Capital.

Delhi is a cosmopolitan city where people are open to embracing new ideas and lifestyle. One can notice the transition in the demography of people in Delhi with the changing lifestyle and the influence of modern ideas in the lives of Delhiites.

Though the city has no culture of its own but people from all the parts of the country come to Delhi and set a new trend, especially the youngsters. When youngsters from other Indian states come to Delhi – they tend to mix their traditional outfits with western or other styles prevailing in the Capital. As a result, they become trendsetters of sorts for their peers.

For example girls in South India wear long skirts with a coloured strip known as kara meaning border pairing it with short kurti, sometimes they use neriyathu which is traditionally worn over the blouse. When the South Indian girls come to Delhi, they start wearing it with long t-shirts and become a trendsetters.

The other trends which came to picture was of harem. Also girls from Punjab have started blending cultures, they pair salwaar with a long t-shirt which again became a new trend.

Talking about the trend Kashmiri, there are various kinds of embroidery which are famous all over the country. The designs are often drawn from scenic beauties of nature, flowers, creepers and chinar leaves, fruits, etc. Teenagers are often seen wearing kurtas with embroidery with their jeans or leggings, and soon it became a long lasting trend in Delhi.

The strength of northeastern states is also unavoidable in Delhi, who are famous for their products made of shell and beads. Justifying it Daksh Narain, floor manager at Maya by Gitanjali lifestyle said, “Girls love to buy Indo-western dresses and so we always keep a separate stock of these wear outs. As the summer is in, harems and long skirts are again priorities among girls. Other than harem and long skirts they also demand kurtas to pair it with their jeans.”

Further on jewellery he said, “Long malaa are famous among young ladies, specially college-goers. They also like wearing anklets.” Fabindia which is famous for its ethnic outfits has a very groovy collection of this stuff. Sneha Mishra, a student of DU said, “I am here to buy a long skirt and some ethnic jewellery. I wear it with my funky tees which obviously gives an amazing look.”
