Get funky this summer!
Tomboy or girlie-girl, laidback luxe or simplistic dressing.. whatever your style quotient, this season has something to keep you looking trendy and fresh, writes Rochelle Pinto.india Updated: May 05, 2009 18:11 IST
Get experimental, get funky, dig into the abyss of your closet and rework what you love. That’s the mantra of the season, where fashion is looking towards the past to take a leap forward.
Resort wear offers you a feel-good guarantee. Bright colours like citrus, pomegranate, lime green and cherry keep your ensemble naturally fresh. Watercolour splashes and cartoon prints also add spunk to a sunny day. Balance a bright ensemble with accessories in nudes to avoid looking like a paint experiment gone wrong.
Keep it simple
White.. pristine yet impish.. this colour is the hands-down winner in the summer spectrum. Wear it in the classic white shirt-blue jeans combo.. or with a racier edge for a night out on the town.
Get set.. go
IPL touches everything.. fashion included. Get sporty chic with shorts and racer back tees for a practical approach to the summer. Vests can be worn by both guys and girls, androgyny anyone?
Let it flow
Floating hippie-chic dresses ruled the ramps and are designed for ventilation in the maddening heat. Chiffon, cotton jersey and khadi are the go-to fabrics. Match with gladiator flats and floral headgear.. and join the flower child brigade.
