“I wish, I didn’t have to wear clothes in this heat!”, you know you’ve thought it at least once in the crazy heat wave. The answer to your troubles lies in a pure bright shade of white. White doesn’t have to be the in tone in fashion. It’s a classic and can be worn in a million way. We’ve scanned our archives for the season and here are 8 ways you can wear white for the summer!

The good ol’ shirt and shorts

If you don’t already have a nice pair of white shorts handy, you ought to be picking one up right away! You could go the sporty luxe way like the look above by 431-88 by Shweta Kapur or a crafty crispy shirt and shorts look by Armaan Aiman.

Do it in drapes

I love the fluid lines in drapes and in white, they emit a certain aura of romance. The two look above show the two side of drapes, a fluid flow in the Wendell Rodricks and a constructed one in Amit Aggarwal.

A shift dress is a style staple in every girl’s wardrobe but one in white is a must have for the season. We love Bodice’s minimal approach to the shift dress and newbie, Mirage by Parul Bhargava’s tone on tone sequin number with a slit is sexy option for those dressy dos.

See Sheer

You gotta have those palazzo trousers and a breezy luxe trench, when you arrive at your fancy resort destination. And while, we’re talking fancy, a boring palazzo just won’t do. My pick would be this gorgeous Mrinalini offering from her spring summer 2014 collection. And a fluid trench coat to by Junelia Aguiar to go with it!

the white sari

Bring some elegance into your summer wardrobe. The white sari has gone through a chic meets strong transformation. We saw Rahul Mishra bring in some edge to the sari blouse with a zipper and Sailex had his own clean vision of the evergreen sari.

Knocking that halo out and choose something sexy. You could play it minimal with a flare and fluid hem line like the Wendell Rodricks look or opt for plunging neckline in a full length that features in our pick from Anita Dongre. That’s how ‘chic’ does sexy.

Tailored perfection

Lastly, you absolutely have to get yourself a tailored pant suit. Our picks would be Sailex and Nikhil Thampi. Why? Because one’s a genius in his patterns and finish, and the other just knows what it takes to flatter a girl.

Have fun pairing your whites with whites. In fact, like the designers above, you could keep your eye on textures and tones. Play with your looks and try to get the most out of it. You have what it takes and for the rest, we’re right besides you!
