Skimpy dresses went passe from red carpet events in the latter half of 2014, paving way for skirts in all forms, as well as sassy crop tops. Designers say the trend will continue to rule in 2015, as much for celebrities as for common fashion-conscious girls.

Bollywood actresses like Sonam Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Malaika Arora Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Alia Bhatt flaunted the trend during movie promotions and award nights.

"Skirts will make a big trend in 2015. The ones with long slits, wrap skirts and pretty much all kinds of skirts are going to be hot in 2015. Crop tops will also make it for big trend this year, and they work both for relaxed casual looks and for cocktail wear," designer Kiran Uttam Ghosh said.

Fringes and florals will add some spunk to this look in 2015, states the designers.

"Fringes add a bohemian charm to an outfit with an understated flamboyance. The trend is going to be seen on everything - dresses, skirts, jackets, bags, shoes, scarves and pretty much everything in your wardrobe. Florals are also making its way in 2015 like never before. From large and loud to minute, it's all about going floral this year," said Ghosh.

The colours that are likely to rule the palette are shades of green-olive, leaf and emerald, along with amethyst, deep purple, mauve and pink.

Chunky bibs in copper and handcuffs with interesting animal or reptile motifs will steal the show. Boots are also a huge trend for the season, closely followed by ankle strap heels.
