Functionality meets fashion in 2023 and it’s off to an eclectic start! ■ Merging boldness with fun, Pantone’s Color of the Year 2023 Viva Magenta’s organic origin pays an ode to the shift towards healing the planet. A versatile colour, it makes a statement whether it’s ethnic wear or western. An ornate lehenga choli, sequined saree, co-ord sets or a pant suit – vivacious magenta elevates any ensemble. Dabka, zardosi, sequin – any kind of embroidery looks fabulous on it. It goes well with colours like navy, white, beige or if you want to colour block it with sunshine orange or fruit orange, it pans out majestically. MODEL PRESENTS A CREATION BY DESIGNER KILIAN KERNER RAVEENA TANDON DONS A FUSION INDO WESTERN As Viva Magenta sets the tenor for fashionistas, here’s a look at what’s going to rule the fashion scene in 2023 ■ Co-ord (coordinated) sets are here to stay. Two or more pieces of clothing in matching colours or styles offer plenty of versatility, especially to Indian fashion. “I see a lot of designers doing Ajrak (unique form of block printing from Ajrakhpur, Kutch district) co-ord sets – loose kaftan style kurtas with ankle-high pants or shirt-loose pants-jacket combinations. What’s interesting is the length of the jacket. Right from hip to mid-thigh to long, one can play with fabrics and lengths keeping in mind the season,” says Ritu Kochhar, founder director, INIFD. ■ It’s time to put your most colourful foot forward, literally. “Colourful sneakers have enjoyed a good run for a while. Year 2023 sees reds, pinks, maroons and greens adorning your feet. And not just colours, beads to crystals and clear heels are going to enjoy their moment this year,” says Kochhar. Designer Aprajita Toor feels chunky heels and classic vintage style ADITI RAO HYDARI WEARING A PAYAL KHANDWALA DESIGN shoes will enjoy the attention too. Matching co-ord or same colour separates will be the fashion pick along with bold block heels,” says Toor. ■ Bling is here to stay. Beads, sequins, appliqué work to lace, it’s all about dressing it up. Chunky chains to body armours – right from bralettes to body jewels, there is whole new dimension waiting to be explored. ■ Denims are forever and in 2023 you don’t have to choose between skinny or baggy. “Post covid, individual preference rides over trend trope and most brands are offering a variety,” says Kochhar. Denim would enjoy many avatars – right from baggy, boyfriend, straight, paper bag, double-waisted (second waistband that sits higher than the exterior fabric) to carpenter jeans (with many pockets and loops), choose your style and comfort. Denim co-ord sets with rhinestones and other embellishments, it’s time of upgraded denims. ■ Sheer sure spreads its magic in spring and summer. Having long moved away from showing inner wear, sheer has moved from ramp to real. See-through dresses, lace blouses to tassles, dare to don some sheer magic! ■ Just like carpenter jeans, it’s all about functionality, so you will see pockets everywhere—an Indian kurta set or lehenga choli, pockets are ubiquitous this season! ■ If bling or bold isn’t your choice, go for neutral and monochromatic looks. WEBSOLUTE FUN ‘30-plus broken bones’ Get ready for an emotional ride This week OTT brings out the flavours of love, revenge, thrill and patriotism No financial angle Almost two years after he was reportedly dropped from Karan Johar’s project Dostana 2, Kartik Aaryan reveals the real reason behind it. The actor recently appeared on a talk show and spoke about it. When asked whether the reason was money, Kartik clarified, “I have never left a film because of money. I am very greedy, but in terms of script and not money.” On why he chose to keep silent, the actor shared, “This happens sometimes. I haven’t spoken about this before. My mother taught me when there’s an altercation between two people, the younger one should never speak about it. I follow that and hence I never speak about it.” Meanwhile, the actor awaits the release of Shehzada on February 10 and has another film Satya Prem Ki Katha opposite Kiara Advani in the pipeline.

The right mix of ethnic and western makes heads turn and hearts tremble,” says Ishu Datwani, founder Anmol Jewellers. Gauri Tandon, co-founder, Isharya, makes a case for dopamine jewels, signet rings and personalised jewellery. “This is all about accessories that spark joy. Vivacious hues like rani pink, icy aqua and refreshing parakeets come to life with a fusion of icy CZ crystals, polki-cut mirrors, and colour plating making dopamine jewellery to tick.” Signet rings or pinky rings that dates back to the 1920s1930s when many women activists started wearing them to represent self-love will find favours in 2023. “Personalised jewellery has been especially strong since the pandemic, and the trend will continue. These keepsakes are irreplaceable and worn close to the heart,” says Tandon. SHOTGUN WEDDING tickling humour while the bride and the groom try to save the day and their wedding.
