This season it is all about zipping up. This shiny and chic accessory is one of the hottest trends this summer. Be it clothes, bags, shoes or jewellery, this embellishment has made its mark everywhere. Celebs have been seen sporting this brave trend at events and even otherwise.
Earlier seen as a necessity, zippers have come out of the 'closet' and are basking in their new glory. Basic clothes can be transformed into statement pieces with the exposed zip trend. We tell you how to rock this brand new trend.
Zip up that dress: The new 'show the zipper' dress has been doing the rounds. The front zip detailing on the dress gives the otherwise classy ensemble a grunge look. If you want to experiment , then go for a denim skirt with a front zipper. Wear this skirt with a tucked in shirt and pumps. If you are not a big fan of the trend, don't fret. You can incorporate this trend in your wardrobe by carrying either a clutch with a zipper or shoes with zipper detailing. That way you won’t go overboard and still look trendy.
Also, for a black tie affair try giving that LBD (little black dress) a makeover. Opt for a tube black dress with a front zip and you will definitely stand out. Even a maxi with a back zipper can make you look uber cool.
Those pants are hot: Skinny pants with side zips are big this summer.
Team these super trendy pants with boots and a leather jacket for the oomph factor.
An exposed zipper in the front can transform your basic denims into a swanky outfit.
Put on your jacket: A lot of designers experimented with jackets this summer.
To add that 'wow' factor to your ensemble experiment with a zipper jacket. An exposed zipper either on the sleeves or around the waist will do the trick.
Instead of going for your usual boring colours, go for pop colours like pink or green.
The shoe story: Earlier seen only on clothes, zips are the new embellishment on shoes as well.
Invest in a pair of flat boots dressed up in this chic accessory.
