Making statement

Designer holidays are in

Holidaying has reached a new level with people maintaining a style quotient even while on a vacation.They like to flaunt their designer clothes, accessories and travel gears. A trip, therefore, is not just about going to a place and enjoying the scenery anymore.

There are many who believe in taking their best with them while on a holiday. “We go for a holiday at least once a year and though we have a budget, we end up spending a lot more than what we had planned. I generally shop before we leave for the trip and like to buy good clothes and comfortable shoes,” says Himangi, a businesswoman.


Many also have a fetish for the latest travel gear. Chiranjiv, a professional, says that travel gears, that are available today, are so attractive that one falls prey to these. “I buy travel gears at least once a year as I don’t like taking dusty old bags and trolleys when I go for a trip.Though they turn out to be expensive, I consider these as an investment,” he explains.

Designer Tina Sareen says that women today want to make a style statement wherever they go.

 “Women take holiday fashion very seriously today. They are highly influenced by celebrities and fashion in the airports. Be it comfortable jumpsuits, big bags or oversized designer sunglasses, they still make a style statement,” she says.

 

“Resort wear does not just include swim wear anymore. ‘Kaftan’ dresses in bright hues, wrap-dress and chunky neck pieces are very big at the moment. Women in the age group of 30 to 50, I would say, make a very conscious effort and fit into this bracket,” she adds.
  
There are many women who prefer to travel in style and don’t mind travelling with their luggage. “I don’t agree with the whole concept of travelling light. It is only during the holidays that we want to look stylish. Though it makes travelling a little hectic, I think it’s worth it,” adds Himangi.

Radhika Shastry, a professional from the travel industry, says that holidaying is big now-a-days and people prefer luxury resorts and suites. She adds that it is true even for the urban middle class.


“The concept of holidaying in India has graduated from visiting extended families in their hometown to making a commitment to themselves and their families to take regular holidays. The burgeoning middle class Indian traveller aspires to explore new places and experiences that have a certain amount of snob value and are yet economical,” she sums up.
