Tassels, statement earrings, spikes and sequins are the big trends that will be seen on the runways for Spring Summer 2015.

Tassels You could work this trend in any way you desire. A heavily embroidered dupatta with tassel embellishments at the corners paired with a simple salwar kameez, is perfect for a pooja at home. A more contemporary way to rock this trend is to wear a tasselled jacket or a fringe bag with a pair of jeans and a shirt. Or, you could choose to play it safe and simply experiment with the trend and wear a gold coloured tasselled cuff with your sari.

Statement earrings They look best when worn with a simple outfit. For maximum effect, wear a knee length sundress with a pair of earrings that almost scrape your shoulders. It's a sure shot way of getting people to notice you. Long earrings look best on people with a slender neck. The best way not to overdo this look is to skip the necklace while sporting statement earrings. Look stunning in a heavy georgette sari with chandelier earrings at a wedding cocktail party. For me, the sari is the most fascinating and versatile piece of clothing. It is made for our body types. Indian women look sensational in a sari.

Spikes This is my favourite trend for the new year. It shouts rebel! Each one of us has a rebellious side and what better way to express it rather than through fashion? Whether it’s a clutch, a necklace or ballet flats, be runway ready in spikes. The British designer brand Alexander McQueen is the cult brand for accessories with spikes. You just have to own a McQueen clutch! Get in touch with your rebel side by sporting a spike ear cuff by our very own Manish Arora for Amprapali. Manish Arora is well known for his edgy designs. Today, you have the freedom to mix and match. So go ahead and be different. Wear your spikes even with something as traditional as a sari.

And Bling! Admit it. We adore bling. Fortunately for us, sequins is still a big trend for the new year. Whether you want to go all out or be subtle, there is something for everyone. I prefer to stick to sequinned accessories and keep my outfit plain. But the choice is yours. Wear a sequinned belt to dress up the otherwise plain little black dress. The same belt can be worn to complete a pair of jeans and a white shirt. If you're aiming for a more formal look and still want to wear sequins, pair a sequinned bag or a clutch with your sari.

Fashion is about being clever and choosing accessories that can be repeated with different clothes for different occasions.
