Cross-body slings, flared pants and long-chain neckpieces are a few hand-picked trends that will make you look fabulous and cool when temperatures soar.

Priya Sachdev, founder of online luxury marketplace RockNShop, has a few suggestions:

Pastels:

Yes or No??? #dresses.up.now

Refresh your wardrobe with some of the soothing tones like powder pink, soft lavender, lime green and icy blue.

Flared pants:

They not only accentuate your curves, but also make your legs appear leaner and longer as well.

Cross-body slings:

This no-fuss, hands-free style is totally worth investing in. Be it a casual outing or a brunch date with friends, cross-body slings can never go out of fashion.

Nude-lip colours

Take a break from red and pink and ace the nude-lip look for that perfect pout. It’s not just your clothes that need a makeover as the mercury hits at all-time high, but also your make-up. Nude lips are perfect for this hot, sweltering climate and help you avoid the caked-up look which is a strict no-no in the summer.

Open-toe boots:

They look stylish if paired with a pretty dress or shorts. You can even carry them off with a pair of skinny jeans for a casual-meets-chic statement.

Embroidery:

This intricate needlework is still in vogue and we believe, always will be. The pretty handiwork works well on jackets, dresses or even jeans and can give you a fresh look.

Long-chain neckpieces:

Get over statement neckpieces and embrace long-chain ones. They are timeless and can make a bold statement too.

Shoulder cut-outs:

They have been a hot favourite among celebrities on the red carpet, with most of them opting for off-shoulder evening gowns. This is one style that works well for all body shapes and hides any flaws that you want.
