Ace designers and experience host, Shantanu & Nikhil, who have over 17 years of experience and have styled the biggest Bollywood celebrities teamed up with Airbnb to share a few tips on winter dressing.

Here are a few tips from Shantanu & Nikhil on winter dressing:

  1. Layer it up this winter season – Layering has always been on trend when it comes to winter dressing, so don’t be afraid to pile on the layers this season. Opt for draped long coats and trench coat inspired anarkalis this season.
  2. Color palettes like Navy, cherries and charcoal greys work well in the season
  3. Style it with a chic brooch to give it an edgy look
  4. One can also pick layered pleated and long line cape structures to depict sharp tailoring and dramatic accents.

Brothers, and designers, Shantanu and Nikhil Mehra started their label in 2000, but earlier this year, took to a very distinctive aesthetic. Known for their penchant to narrate two parallel storylines of fashion and fortitude, they are exploring a new chapter that embarks on a more contemporary, sculpted and minimal approach to bridal couture. The designers, who find their muse in men and women who fight for what they believe in, are looking at a more powerful, egalitarian approach to design. The designer duo Shantanu & Nikhil have marked their excellence in the best of both worlds-“art and commerce”. The creative half of the team, Nikhil Mehra pursued his Masters in Fashion from Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandise (FIDM), Los Angeles, while Shantanu completed his MBA in Finance from Ohio State University.

“We believe in reinventing Indian history through the art of the cloth by constantly breaking stereotypes of tradition and fashion”
