“Summer of Love”

Spring-summer knocking its door shortly, it's time for us to revamp our wardrobe and welcome some refreshing changes.

We are brimming with fresh and fine ideas for summer fashion. Whether you're looking for pointers for amping up work wardrobe, or finding ways to up your festival-girl game next spring, here's a dekko to know about the look of the upcoming season. Here's to more of flowy, dreamy and irresistible silhouettes.

If you want to go out with your friends or it's a date night, go the Bohemian route. Choose from floral maxis, with curvilinear silhouette for a soft and diaphanous look. Closer to these are the sun dresses which are ruling the roost like never before, giving out an ultra romantic aura.

Opt for the pant suit, yes you read it right! From cropped pants to ruffled / frilly shirts the choices are plenty. Flared pants are hot this season, dressed in prints or plain they are helping revamp the summer of style. Power dressing at work or formal meeting can work in your favour even if the weather is playing games with you.

You must have prints in your wardrobe. From Gingham, florals, polka, wall flowers, abstracts, psychedelic watercolour to nautical stripes, they are the order of the day.

Lace is back with a bang, lace up! The look of white or colourful lace on your dress, shirts, skirts, shorts, baby doll dresses or even hats is just refreshing. They are feminine, elegant and you can have loads of fun while you are at it. Embrace lace like there is no tomorrow.

Pick up boyfriend shirts, the large, over-sized shirts in cotton, denims or linen can make you look great when paired with leggings or shorts. You can even tuck the shirts in your skirts or pants.

Opt for relaxed fit printed trousers. They are a great addition to your wardrobe, because they are loose fit and the prints make you go back in time. Pair them up with racer tops, long flowing vests and plain tees.

Crop tops are here to stay. Pair them up with, skirts, shorts, pants or just about anything and everything.

Jumpsuits in all lengths are in vogue. From the teen weeny sizes, to ankle length jumpsuits are your go-to attire this summer. Pair them up with plain pastel tees or printed numbers.

Full midi skirts are a must-have for every fashion lover in town. A date night or your brunch out with girls will not be complete without flaunting yourself in one of the hot lady- like ensembles. Fifties-style full skirts that have dominated a few seasons with a pleated knee-length or midi skirt is trending. Pair it up with a crop top and you are good to go!

Fringe benefits for summer anyone? Opt for tops, dresses, cover-ups with shimmy, shaking, flapping fringes. They add the much needed fun quotient to a boring look.

We move on to feminine and flirty asymmetrical hemlines. The sexy hemline is apt for skirts, dresses and even tunics will be summer staples.

Embrace luxurious suede and summer leather, in the form of patch work in your attires or have them in your bandeau tops, bottoms and even your lingerie perhaps!

Layering is essential this summer. Let your skirt, dress and tops do double duty this summer. Even the sultry transparency in layering is working the trick this season.

For an evening out, you can party all night in your well tailored metallic attires. Or better still have a metallic accessories in tow. The high shine metallics appear to be stronger than ever before! You may even shine in sequins for a striking summer night out look!

Kimono cuts are the next big thing this summer season. Paired with Japanese motifs they are trending big this month. Wrap yourself up and pair up with wide belts and you have the perfect out-of-the-ordinary look in place.

Pretty pleats were in vogue last summer and won't be away from us this summer either! From pleated skirts, dresses, maxis, shorts to pants, pleats

As for the hues this season, choose from colourblocking, pastels, nudes, sorbet, tangerine, neons, khaki, to the trusty whites.

Stay stylish, Stay beautiful this scorching summer!
