Summer is all about fresh breeze, sunny weather and a time of many rendezvous. We let go all our inhibitions and worries to enjoy the summer holidays. As Cliff Richards rightly said, “No more worries on a summer holiday…”
It is a time of metamorphosis, where women shed the layers of warm clothing to emerge like multicolored butterflies. It is important to keep up with the changing trends, so that you are always the belle of the ball, especially during summers.
5 Fashion Trends To Follow During Summer:
Yes, it is not easy to keep up with the ever changing fashion trends. But don’t worry! Here’s a quick list of the top 5 summer fashion trends to help you out!
1. Crop Top:
With the rising mercury, a fashionable crop top can offer you a soothing feeling. Fashionistas, such as Deepika and Sonam are flaunting crop tops with great élan. Sporting a crop top gives you an edgy and glamorous look. This trend is perfect for fuller figured girls. You need to keep in mind the following things while buying a crop top:
- The top should reach the center of your rib cage. This is the leanest part of the body
- The skirt should be high-waisted and a should be fitting rather than flouncy
- For a more voluptuous build, you can opt for a full sleeve top
- Opt for a thigh slit for added glamor
2. Body Chains:
The newest and more bizarre trend is to sport body chains, a la Rihanna. This trend has caught on and has its root in our own Indian fashion. We have been sporting kamarbandhs since time immemorial. Body chains start at the neck and encircle the waist as well. It is edgy and grungy, with a youthful feel. The more elaborate the piece is, the more you will stand out. Ensure that you opt for thin and delicate jewelry rather than chunky jewellery, you don’t want to end up like Bappi Lahiri!
Peek a boo lace is romantic and makes you feel all girlish, yet suave. Supported by stunners like Deepika Padukone, this trend is scorching this summer. You can opt for a skirt or a top in a nice summery pastel or go total glam with a black lace dress. This lightweight look is perfect for the rising mercury and can be accentuated with romantic updos and messy fishtails for your hair. Team a popping lipstick with pastel dresses.
4. Desi Chic:
Beat the heat with desi chic or boho glam this summer. Cotton is a wonderful fabric for the hot and humid summers. Keep the look simple with crinkle skirts with wide borders with a toning tank. This is a light, no fuss look, which can be glammed up with chunky bangles and kohl rimmed eyes. Choose juttis or chappals to complete the look. Kareena Kapoor sported this look to perfection in her recent movie.
5. Color Blocking:
Color Blocking is perfect for the summer. The look primarily consists of wearing outfits with solid contrasting colors. You can pair a peach skirt with a buttercup yellow top. It offers an elegant and slimming look with the color blocking ensuring a straight silhouette. Pair this look with strappy flats for an effortless glamour. You can add to the look by choosing a bright and shimmery slipper and a chic scarf.
All these trends are easy and fuss-free, and the combinations are endless. Ensure that you wear sunscreen and a good primer to keep your face dewy and oil free. Wear a smile, a subtle fragrance and you are ready to charm the world!
