Our top picks from Akaaro, Pero and more

Fall is almost upon us and while in India the season isn’t as rigidly defined, it does gently ease us into the demands of winter. Autumn is the perfect time to sport those scarves and add light layers. It’s the time for chai and the warmth of socks and mittens.

Featuring experimental silhouettes, dramatic textures and unique layering, India Fashion Week provides some exciting ideas for your wardrobe this season:

Abraham & Thakore’s collection ‘Sadak Smart’ brought street style to the catwalk with singular layering, featuring everything from coats to skirts and separates.

Akaaro’s ‘The Upside Down’ collection sought a dark palette, setting the mood for winter. Layer on that asymmetrical coat with a kurta or skirt for a look right off the ramp.

Want to brighten up an autumnal sky? Look no further than Ilk’s collection of khadi cotton in a palette of blues, grape, teal and marigold.

Khadi cotton too boho for your taste? Perhaps Kanika Goyal’s collection with wayward splashes of vivid colour will do the trick. Bring out those light sweaters and add acid pop accents to up your style quotient.

Nitin Bal Chauhan’s collection featured interesting prints and checks in oversized ensembles. Go big or go home to rock this trend!

Pero’s coral and pink runway brought back tartan, a fabric that is perfect for the season. Time to bring out those old favourites for style that keeps you warm, without breaking a sweat.

Looking for something more formal? Shymal & Bhumika’s collection of embellished garments serve as divine inspiration for a sangeet outfit at your bestie’s wedding.
