Dressing right for summer - 2

Kurtis/ Kurthas

To beat the scorching Indian summer heat, most women prefer to adorn the stylish and comfy cotton kurtis with leggings. In my opinion it's the most comfortable, stylish and graceful Indian attire. The best part is you don't have to wear a dupatta. Kurtis can be worn on any occasion. It can be worn to office, for shopping, to a party or to the local grocery shop.

 It doesn't require much time to slip them on. It's a matter of  just few minutes. There are a variety of vibrant pure cotton Kurtis/Kurtas along with leggings that can be found in the popular online shopping portals, like Jabong, Myntra and so on.

Cotton leggings are preferred during summer. Avoid synthetic leggings.

Go for cool colours like pastel shades - Aqua blue, shades of pink, lemon, mauve, neon and a lot of whites. Anything that is light. Light colours reflect heat and keep us cool whereas dark colours absorb heat. 

Style tips. 

 * Kurtas can be worn with Sandals, neon chappals, pretty wedges  and even high heels. 

 * They can be teamed up with Junk Jewellery as well as high end Jewellery brands.

* Style them differently with stoles.

* Use colourful handbags and shades to get a summery look.

Dhotis and Jodhpuris

Many of us prefer to wear loose fitting clothes during summer. Thus many women opt for Dhotis and Jodhpuris. They are loose, comfortable and cool. They fall well on slimmer women and give them a fuller Boho look. They are inn this summer. They also give a relaxed and easy-going appearance.

Style Tips 

*  Dhotis and jodhpuris can be worn with flats, wedges, sandals, neon chappals and even high heels.
*  They look best with Junk Jewellery.
*  Team them with stylish shades and handbags.
