Woah! The heat is making its presence felt. Cotton, colour and the calm ocean breeze is what we need. The latter may not always be accessible but the rest is. I looked at a ton of celebrity Instagram pictures to weave out a strong summer style file, just for you. So pay attention because you’re gonna be looking mighty fine by the end of this!
Let’s start from the top!
You gotta have a great hat. Trucker, floppy, straw, baseball, cowboy or whatever floats your boat. Get your hands on a couple of cool hats. Summer time officially calls for the best head-gear to make their presence felt!
Moving on, you now need a couple of scarves and a few more bandanas. Tie ’em on your head or knot them around your neck. Bandanas in graphic or scarves in vibrant prints, bring them out. Don’t be afraid to tear up your old chiffon dress to make a few. And don’t limit yourselves. Scarves make great belts. In fact, I knew a girl who would use them as key holders. (Ask me how!)
Or you may skip them all to just rock tiaras or hair accessories like Lindsay Lohan, Rihanna and Madonna!
Now bring out the ‘sunnies’, shades, goggles, kala chashma or whatever you may call them! There seriously is a whole lot to pick, from wayfarers, aviators to old school Lennon frames. The season’s all about the neon-tint and shapes.
Are you with me? We’re now headed to the beach, so grab your bikinis and sun-tan lotion. You gotta have some sexy swimwear for the summer. And of course, you know bikini tops look swell with a pair of ripped shorts.
After the beach, come the cover-ups. Sundresses in jungle prints are a must for the summer. You gotta have the flowing full-length and few sexy shift dresses for the post-dip chill-out sunset parties!
Do not forget the quintessentially cool checked man-shirt for the summer!
Speaking of man-shirts… Boys, it’s time for you to bring out the prints. And not the cheesy Hawaiian themed ones but some groovy tropical prints with brilliant colours like rock star brothers from 30 Seconds To Mars, Jared and Shannon Leto, and lead vocalist for The Killers, Brandon Flowers.
Why leave the nails out? After all, attention to detail is the true mark of a fashion junkie, isn’t it? MissMalini loves her nail art too! Check it out here.
Would you colour your hair for the summer? We’re not talking subtle but something radical like the Lizzy Plapinger from MSMR or Katy Perry. There is nothing like bright colours to get you through the summer. But a loud coloured head isn’t for everyone. So what? You have the choice to go graphically short. Most hair stylists in India would recommend the short length, especially, if you live in areas with high level of humidity.
In a nutshell, the summer calls for sun on the skin. So, step away from the whitening products and get yourself some vitamin D and a lot of colour!
