From refreshing pastels to bold statement hues, embrace the vibrant spirit of summer with these must-have colour combinations for your wardrobe in 2024.

As the summer season unfolds and temperatures rise, it's time to refresh your wardrobe with thoughtful consideration. Your choice of colours and tones has a huge impact on how you are perceived in terms of styling and fashion. While some colour combinations can enhance the look of your ensemble, others may just look out of place and not as summer-ready. "When perusing for new additions, prioritize garments crafted from lightweight, breathable fabrics with flowing silhouettes, ensuring comfort in the sweltering heat. Indian wear undergoes a notable transformation this season, embracing themes such as Romantic Renaissance, Underwater Fantasticalness, Mermaid Core, and Free Masculinity. Each theme exudes summertime allure while catering to diverse style preferences, promising a revitalizing update to your closet," says Anuradha Chandrashekar, fashion expert, co-founder and chief creator, ICH Next.
