3 Summer Trends To Try From Bhane’s New Collection
When you think of minimalistic style, the one Indian brand that defines it to perfection is Bhane. We’re big fans of this brand by Anand Ahuja here at Hauterfly. Personally, I remember getting my very first Bhane pieces — a chambray tux shirt and an acid-washed tank top — a few years ago and I can’t tell you how much I loved them. They still fit me perfectly and there’s barely any fade action.
I think of Bhane as one of those desi hip brands that’s all about trendy pieces that instantly help you get out of a style rut. Also, I love how the brand’s collection is not just minimalist chic but also very young. Recently, the brand released its latest capsule collection, and the lookbook has pieces that are perfect for the upcoming season. Featuring styles that are summer-friendly, Bhane Rec is stylish and affordable. So we’re breaking it down to three key trends to help you update your new season wardrobe.
1. BILLOWY PANTS
Make some room for breezy, billowy pants in your wardrobe. For if you’re seeking comfort this summer, wide-legged pants are what you need. The style was quite a hit on Spring Summer 2016 runways, and I know of no reason why you shouldn’t try it. Oversized pants not only translate to a relaxed feel, they are perfect for every body type. Bhane’s pleated wide-legged pants are perfect to team with a button-down shirt or a graphic tee. Go the androgynous way by adding a pair of brogues, or just style them with a pair of chic mules. I love the addition of a brooch to this look; just the perfect accessory to sport right now!
2. SUMMER JACKETS
While I steer clear from layering in summer — the less the clothes, the better — a lightweight long shirt over a summer dress or a cropped summer jacket over a tee and denims is apt for the season. Also, a summer jacket is a piece that always stays in vogue. I suggest a neutral palette in easy fabrics for summer. The summer jacket from Bhane is a loose, long jacket that’s perfect to drape over your shirt dress or to pair with your boyfriend jeans and tee. Roll up the sleeves for a casual look.
3. THE GOOD OL’ CROP TOP
If there’s one garment you should ditch your shirt for, it’s the crop top. Perfect for summer; if you’re one who dares to bare, the crop top is your go-to piece. No matter what you pair it with, a crop top will amp it up your ensemble a few notches higher. One reason to love the Bhane crop top is because it is made of handloom ikat. This blue and white top is perfect with neutral cropped pants and sneakers or a short skirt.
FOR THE BOYS
For all you men out there, Bhane has a range of styles to fall in love with too:
