The scorching sun is no excuse to dress sloppy. From styles inspired by the past to a soothing, subtle colour palette that instantly lifts your mood, here’s what you can rock this summer. Whether you want to be a punk princess in see-through or sheer top or casual and chic with handloom weaved anti-fit dresses, these Bollywood stars give you cues to mix and match and keep it fun and fashionable this summer.

Pull it off your shoulder

Actor Kiara Advani wore an off-shoulder ruffled asymmetric top with fitted ripped denims. The printed breathable top was teamed with a high ponytail and bright orange lip colour added to her entire ensemble. She finished out the look with Saint Laurent Tribute sandals. You can team the top with ripped shorts and gladiators for a more casual look. Make sure you take the minimal route when it comes to accessories.

Check this off your list...

A checked dress or top is a subtle pick this summer. Actor Amrita Arora Ladak teamed a Seema Khan ruffled, off-shoulder dress with black heels and a high ponytail. You can add some colour to the look by teaming it up with contrasting hue pumps or by adding a waist belt. Put on loop earrings or danglers to complete the look and go minimal with the makeup.

For cape’s sakes!

A cape blazer may not be able to cut the cold in winters but can add as the perfect layering option for summers. For a casual look like Mira Kapoor, team a white cape blazer or a white top with blue denims. She finished the look with loose tresses, fringed footwear and Saint Laurent colour-block quilted clutch.

Go minimal with a maxi

Chic in sheer

Wearing a sheer Pero top with a pair of boyfriend jeans, Kriti went for this look with a roomy backpack and peppy peach lip colour. Summers and sheer go hand and hand, which makes this look a causal and comfortable pick for when you have to be out the whole day.

Polka dot affair

How about revisiting the past? Actor Sonakshi Sinha did it with polka dots. She wore a polka-dot Kaprapan dress, with her hair pulled back and rounded out the look with a pair of Nike sneakers and eyewear. This cool casual look calls for no makeup and accessories.

Print game
