Go prints & florals with UCB this summers

PICTURE HEAVY POST 

By Tarry

Hi girls,
Summers are generally a time when we majorly stay indoors. And with the increase in e-commerce sites offering awesome stuff, summers means a lot of indoor shopping. However, I still love to shop for clothes in the stores. The rush of checking out the clothes by touching them, feeling them and then trying them out and watching yourself in the trial room mirror .... I still love it all. 

I am not the types who may go all lusty over brands. But when it comes to possessing classic stuff, I want the brands to do the talking. And United Colours of Benetton, better known as UCB, is one of my favourites. I still remember the time when I was gifted my very first formal trousers (a nice high waist double button beige cotton one) from UCB and fell in love with the brand since then. 

So this time, when I thought of giving PEL's pals a glimpse of summer fashion, I decided to start with what UCB is offering. And I am sure that with the pictures that follow (I went bonkers clicking), you all would head to the UCB stores in your city. 

So people, get ready to

The first thing that hit me the moment I entered the UCB store at Hazratganj in Lucknow (check google maps here or UCB site to find the stores in your city) I was amazed by the colours that were showered all over. What an array of colours in the store. Be it menswear, womenswear or kids, it was just colours, prints and florals that dominated every section. Personally, I don't like to go for neutrals in summers as they are otherwise dull and some colour in our attire is always welcome. Check the photos to see....

For womens wear, comfortable tops and colourful bottoms is what the SS'15 collection is all about at UCB. The tops, flowy and in floral or tropical prints, not just look cool but are easy to wear too. The material is cotton which is so apt for summers and the blend of lycra makes them fit all body shapes so well. The white dress in the first photo here with tropical print at the bottom is a personal favourite of mine. Wear it with a smart belt to show off that waist or just the way it is to hide those bulges, it is something for all body shapes. The colours are soothing to the eyes, yet add that much needed funk to your everyday life.

 The showering of prints is really beautiful. Infact, pastel colours with bright prints is something everyone would like to have in their wardrobe. Even in the semi formal office wear, subtle prints are making their presence felt. The dresses have neat cuts which look nice. Check the one in the centre of the photo below. Another interesting top is one in the second photo below, which is a three piece. Comes with a printed top, a simple inner and a matching hobo bag, that compliments the attire. Smart idea indeed... :-)

Moving on, I saw some classic formal kind dresses, tops and jumpsuits in monochromes too. For those who like to be classic in all seasons, this can be a good bet.

The riot of colours does not end in the women's wear section. If it is prints on pastels in the women's section, the men's wear is bold and prints. However, by bold it doesn't mean flashy. Colours like grey, khaki, olive green and combat prints add the much needed macho feel.

For the man in your life, these colours and prints look uber cool. I particularly loved the blue roll up sleeves shirt in the above photo. The fabric is super comfy... But the prints are not just restricted to upper wear only. It is visible even in the bottoms for men. Chest print tees are another favourite from the collection.

UCB also has a sister brand, SIsley, that has more youthful and party wear kind of designs. Crop tops, shimmer tops and clean cuts is what rules Sisley. Check the collection in the photos that follow.

 Last but not the least, the prints trend moves to even the accessories. The belts, bags and shoes are all keeping in mind the print and floral mood.

PEL SHOUTS 
Totally loved and recommend the Summer Collection at United Colours of Benetton. Starting from INR 899, these tops are something which everyone would love in their wardrobe. I personally loved the dresses that are so comfy for summers and also, the tropical prints on menwear. In Lucknow, do checkout their store at Hazratganj which is amongst the best in terms of collection. And in any other city, UCB has to be in your shopping list.
