Bright colours rule the shelves

Positioned as a youthful, stylish and vibrant brand, Lifestyle offers its customers an enjoyable shopping experience. Each store retails not only apparel, footwear, and children’s wear but also toys, home furnishings, beauty and other fashion accessories, making it a one-stop shop with a wide choice of national and international brands.

Keeping the season in mind, the current collection at the store is a burst of colours. The emphasis is on vibrant neons in shades like pink green, blue and even yellow. Catering to all ages, the store aims at adding some style and colour to every individual’s wardrobe. So, one can find a range of ethnic, casual and even western formal wear. For those who like to mix and match their outfits, this collection — with its wide range of options — is perfect. “Bright and vibrant hues are very in this season and they also help the body beat the heat.

But when one does go for bright colours, balancing is key because you don’t want to overpower the entire look. So, one could go for bright pants teamed with a lighter top or play it smart by accessorising the look with belts, bags and jewellery,” says a spokesperson from the brand. One also has to look into what occasion one is going for. “What is appropriate for college may not be for office. For example, a pair of yellow jeans may look cool for college but the same, when worn to office, will look out of place. So, while shopping, always think about where and when you will be wearing the outfit,” adds the spokesperson. When it comes to women, florals and lace are very much in this season. “There are a lot of brands that are going for floral prints. And there are also many garments with a dash of lace — lace dresses are also very in vogue,” says the spokesperson.

And for men, it’s all about the nautical prints and colours, with shades of blue and white and printed tees. The majority of the collection is inspired by the modern man, who is adapting to different cultures and bringing forth his own style statement. “Apart from the blues and whites, men these days are also ready to experiment with colours like tangerine, lemon yellow and pinks. They can also go for linen clothes, which are apt for the weather,” concludes the spokesperson.

Yashwant Singh, II Year, St Joseph’s College of Arts and Science, was all about the colours as he teamed red trousers ‘Jack and Jones’ with a white ‘Forca’ tee and completed it with a checked ‘Forca’ shirt. He matched this with ‘Red Tape’ shoes.
