Do you find it tough to zero in on clothes and accessories when heat and humidity soar to levels that cause you discomfort at any given time in the day? Here’s how you can look your coolest and stylish-most even at an afternoon out! Plus, the country’s top designers and stylists give you additional tips on how to put your most fashionable foot forward...

Don’t shy away from long dresses

Use them to stand tall instead!

Well-known Mumbai-based fashion designer Nachiket Barve makes a case: “Long dresses create an illusion of height. They must not trail, of course, and if you are wearing one with flats, it must be ankle-length. When you wear a long dress with heels, it must be just above the heel of your shoes. You could go boho chic and pair a strappy number with a bolero. Go for cotton and georgette!”
