If you have keenly been following last season’s trends, you would know that the pleated skirt was thoroughly loved by fashionistas. From celebrities to college-going girls, everyone rocked this trend with oomph. And of course, we updated our wardrobe with the latest in fashion, but as we all know, trends change. So this season, Indian designers have brought this unconventional trend to the ramp and it seems to have been brewing in the fashion circuit, the paper bag waists. Yes, they look just like crumpled paper bags gathering at the wearer’s waist. And believe it or not, it does look fun and fancy.
The exaggerated folds at the waist make any petite waist look more defined and can be paired with either a tucked-in shirt or romantic blouses.
The paper bag waists can either be cropped pants or mid-length skirts. The trend has been hitting the international markets since late last year. However, Indian designers have been going gaga over this style at the recent Lakme Fashion Week.
The secret to looking fab in this trend is to make sure you wear some well-fitted top or a sweater as the paper bag waists are usually oversized. Try pairing this look with either closed pumps or brogues. Most of the high street labels have already caught up with this trend, so rush and get your hands on this latest trend.
