clothes to wear in summer season

Summer fashion

The scorching summer sun can cause you to sweat, get dehydrated and even break out into a heat rash. However, you can prevent some of these problems by dressing smart and wearing the right clothes to beat the heat.

Summer Fashion of cotton fabrics/dresses

Cotton absorbs the sweat from your body and allows it to evaporate into the air. It works like a towel, wicking the moisture away from your skin and discouraging the growth of bacteria and yeast. This makes it the perfect fabric for summer because it keeps you cool and prevents infections. You should avoid synthetic fabrics as much as possible because unlike cotton and other natural fabrics, most synthetic fabrics do not breathe. So when you sweat, the sweat doesn’t dry off like it should.

Lighter colours for summer

Colours like white, yellow, beige and other light shades keep you cool because they reflect most of the sun’s rays back into the atmosphere. Dark fabrics, on the other hand, tend to absorb these rays and trap their heat, making you feel even hotter.

Wear loose clothes

In summer, avoid wearing tight clothes that restrict your circulation. Your blood vessels tend to dilate in summer so that your body can cool itself by letting heat escape through your skin, so make it a point to wear loose and airy clothes to allow your blood to circulate freely.

Choose the right clothing styles

Summer is synonymous with shorts, dresses and sleeveless clothes, however, these are not exactly the ideal garments for this season. They expose your skin to the sun’s rays, inviting problems like UV damage and heat rashes. While we’re supposed to apply sunscreen before we go out, a lot of people don’t actually do so, leaving their skin vulnerable and exposed. The heat also dries out your skin, causing it to become stiff and more prone to ageing and wrinkles. If you think about it, the people who live in the deserts of the Middle East wear loose clothing that covers them from head to toe, primarily to protect them from the scorching heat. The ideal clothing choices for summer are loose pants or long skirts with tops. Loose salwar kameezes are also a good option.

What to wear this summer?

With warm temps in full swing, we’re back with another round of seasonal essentials we can’t wait to wear! (If you missed our spring favorites, be sure to check them out here.) Now that it’s summer, you’ll find us living in these comfy staples for the rest of the season. Read on for our budget and splurge-worthy (yet still sensible) versions of each trend. Now, hand us some sangria because we’re ready for outdoor living!

Cool Summer Shirts

Keep things relaxed with oversized polos and textured fifties shirts exemplified by the runway collections of Raf Simons and Louis Vuitton. Balance out this trend with a tailored pant and accessorise with darker wayfarers for a true fifties vibe. This silhouette works perfectly in darker tones as well as powder hues, but contrast is key when combining colours, to sustain a more polished look.

Fashion for working women

A pleated version like this is definitely one of them! Tailored, classic, and definitely not too short, these shorts will keep you cool and are acceptable enough to wear just about anywhere.

Fashion Accessories

Off the shoulder numbers have been cropping (ha!) up everywhere lately, and truly we can’t get enough. Feminine, flirty, and cool in the heat—what’s not to love? If you’re weary about the cropped length, pair it with high waist jeans, shorts, or a skirt to ensure you have enough coverage.

Blazer Fashion

The blazer is at the top of the list when it comes to versatile wardrobe staples—but they can often get hot and stuffy. Opt for a linen version, which is a bit lighter and airier for summer. Same amount of polish but with a sophisticated, summer vibe.

Love wearing blazers. Unfortunately for me, this city gives me merely 2 months to actually enjoy wearing them through the day. So as soon as it got a bit pleasant, I grabbed the chance to flaunt my new blazers. Be it a casual meeting, a friendly lunch or a glam soiree, blazers are all I’ve been reaching for. I would tell you how versatile they are but I’m sure you already know that.
For the first look, I paired this gorgeous on-trend oxblood/burgundy blazer with a laid back grey tee with leather patches tucked into a simple pair of denims. An overload of gold jewellery, a metallic bag, leopard print sandals and you are out the door.
For the next look, I went for a winter floral blazer which was perfect for that quick catch up lunch. A basic tank top and your trusted black jeans with burgundy pumps was my choice of attire. Keeping the rest of the outfit basic helps the blazer shine in all its glory. You can get accessorized with some rose gold jewellery and a studded clutch to add some edge.
For the last outfit, I had to pick this glam gold sequins blazer. I was heading to a glam soiree and I would settle for nothing less. Paired it with a printed silk blue dress to balance the look. Finished the ensemble with a tiny gold bag and minimalistic gold heels.
I hope this images gave you a few styling ideas. And for those of you who want to buy these blazers but want to try them on first, there are lot of options at online shopping sites

Here’s wishing all you lovely people a happy and exciting new year! I hope you guys accomplish what you intend to in the coming year and whatever is pending from last year. Thank you for being such lovely readers and supporters and I hope you continue to come over. Have a fabulous eve.

I put together these three looks keeping in mind the different styles and ways of celebration for the New Year’s Eve.

The first look is for those of you who love being casual and are welcoming the year with a cute dinner date and then catching a new movie at midnight. The skinny jeans are stylish and super comfortable and the waterfall cardigan will keep you snug during the chilly night. Add some bright shoes for that pop of colour!

The second look is for those of you who are heading to a house party or spending the entire night chilling with your friends and dressing up is must. The cowl neck top dresses up the simple black skirt. I added some stockings to add some edge to the outfit! A glitter bag is the best way to add that finishing touch to this look.

The last outfit is for those of you who have been planning for that big new year’s eve party! The sequins dress is the perfect way to shine your way through. The trench coat will help you stay snug in style. A pair of nude pumps will help you put the whole look together. Finish up with a bling bag.

I used a little hand embroidery. Not much may be just 5% of the collection, so the rest is woven. This whole collection has been made in Benaras. The border is mashru but it is not cut and attached.

Fashion trends keep on revolving, paving way for the new. Fashion trends in 2015 have seen some pleasant changes in the fashion world. Fashion designers have experimented with bright colors and bold prints and designs giving way for plain colors. Many of our bollywood celebrities such as kareena kapoor, sonakshi sinha, Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padokone and others have shown off their like for skirts and brazen crop tops.

Hand painted sarees will find a place for block printed ones. One of the emerging entrepreneurs in India is Tishy Tripathi Shukla who runs a small scale company known as Tishyakriti. Is a good example of hand painting work.  You can get beautiful designs of your choices to give your favorite saree a desired change.

The basic idea of a fashion trend is concepted and visualized by fashion designers and are subsequently endorsed by celebrities and subsequently called as latest fashion trends. The same story is every summer, winter or another fashion events organized. This is the way the business in fashion world works. But it is the end customer, who gets benefited by latest designs, colors, and prints. The  business is never out of flavor.

Another flavor this season is short skirts. If you have a nice skinny body and want to look great and are bold enough to flaunt your thighs then short skirts are the right match for you. In metros like Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore, Delhi and others they are trendy. Especially, now when the mercury levels quite high, these are natural choices. You can pair flared skirts with your favorite accessories like rings, bangles, bracelets, belt, and shoes and so on. If you are planning for a romantic evening, then there is no better option than these cute short skirts. Pair them with a colorful and flower printed designs to get a perfect look.

 Fashion designers like Sandeep Khosla and Abu Jani are testing with straighter cuts and multi-panels to achieve layering and volume. The whole concept is to transform preference for Anarkali pattern. Even fashion designer Monisha Jaising foresees fashion trends coming the natural way inspired from nature. She quotes “You’ll see shades like the treetop, almost metallic green, gaining favor and mineral shade of titanium will be popular as will shades like sandstone that have an intrinsic sort of rugged texture to them”. Surily Goel quoted “ Prints are already going crazy. I recently saw a woman wear a sari with the face book logo printed across its length. But, I believe we’ll see a lot of Japanese-inspired prints. By that I mean, you may have the cherry blossom print but in a different color-scheme than the traditional Japanese sense.”

As we discussed about how your wardrobe is going to shape this season, your accessories and footwear’s are going to get a makeover. Footwear’s will are set to get floral prints, animal designs inspired from African culture. Get rid of those plain colors and give you a tang of these latest fashion trends.
