With the beginning of summers, people started visiting picnics and parks to relax.
Summers exposes the beauty of nature, clear sky, grasses are green, flowers bloom. Soaring temperatures and busier social schedules offer plenty of opportunities to experiment with your styles. When the heat is on, the smartest thing to do is wear clothing that breathes. Everyone dresses with light materials to feel cool under the hot sun.
It’s time to start looking ahead, updating our wardrobe with new trend. Here are some of the best looks, trends and shopping picks for summer style.
Kurta having asymmetric necklines with graceful edges or laces paired with palazzos or chudidaars will be in fashion. Wide cropped pajamas can be used to give more style. Use of tassels, strings, fringes and micro pleating will enhance the design of the kurta.
The upcoming season is more about comfort and relaxed looks than anything else we feel. Oversize and loose fit blouses or tops will be in fashion with Victorian inspired look like high neck, ruffles and bows, with wide cropped trousers having cinched waistlines. Those who can wear off shoulders or shoulders cut-outs, really look gorgeous with the trend. Light weight dirndl skirt up to calf length and asymmetric wrap-around skirt with ruffles or skirt with side slits will be in great demand. Besides these, boxy cropped tops and tees with high waist jeans will be in trend this summer.
COLOURS AND FABRICS-
Usually we wear all the soft colours and dark colours with low intensity in summer. Though this summer rose quartz (light pink), butter cup (light yellow), limpet shell (light turquoise blue), iced coffee (beige color), snorkel blue (dark blue) will remain in trend.
With cotton, linen, georgette and chiffon, jacquard pattern, transparent mesh, lace fabrics, mechanical pleats will remain summer favorite.
Handbags are the most anticipated items to become a part of our daily ensembles. Small sized bags will be in with straps loose or hanging by your side. Graphic colors, stripes and design appearing on the bag will look bold, beautiful and quite confident with your style. Shimmering silver with a futuristic appeal has been the main look that everything from clothing to shoes has taken on. Tote bags are all time perfect for stuffing all our needs in.
The assortment of trendy footwear is wide and deep. From flats to high heels, the choices are endless. This season opt for the heels that is not too high. Wedges and thicker heels will be trendy. Platform shoe styles will covet this season. It is the combination of flat and will give a bit elevation.
