AS THE MERCURY rises, it is time to go minimal with your wardrobe. Peel off those layers and get rid of bulky accessories to make way for delicate pieces to match your summer mood. Strappy, minimal sandals are the palette cleanser of accessories and if you are all for a sleek, streamlined look, they are exactly what you need.
Young stars Emma Watson and Alia Bhatt show how to keep it simple with dainty sandals that complement their short skirts perfectly. Sometimes you don’t need embellishment to dress up your outfit; a pair of heels with thin straps adds a lot of elegance to a flirty summer dress. And your skinny jeans or cigarette pants get a sophisticated look with strappy heels.
The simpler your sandals are, the more they let you show off those neon nails or that funky toe ring. And what’s summer without brightly painted toes? Get your feet out of those cramped shoes and give them the love they deserve with simple strappies.

WHETHER IT IS a quick fix with a scrunchie that you carry around on your wrist, or a sleek and sharp style, ponytails are what we are loving, now that summer is here. If you tend to always wear your hair down, now is the time for a bouncy update.
Nargis Fakri was recently spotted wearing her hair in a pony of a medium height and soft waves, with a slightly tousled pouf over the crown. This is a great look for a semi-formal event, like an office brunch or a date, as it is the right combination of dressy and effortless. Or if you have to spend most of your time outdoors in the sticky summer heat, Jennifer Lopez’s tight high pony will give you a youthful look, while keeping hair off your face.
The increasing heat and humidity are good reasons to experiment with cool updos and it couldn’t get simpler than a basic pony. Just dress it up with minimal, colourful or bejewelled bands depending on your mood, and you are good to go.

EASTER SUNDAY WAS a rather quiet day for one of Hollywood’s youngest and most dynamic stars Jennifer Lawrence, who chose the company of close friends and took a stroll down New York’s upscale Soho neighbourhood. The Oscar winner chose not to dress loud to mark the festivities, but kept it rather simple in a slouchy sand-coloured jacket, blue jeans and white top. She used simple accessories that included a silver chain, maroon loafers and a brown sling bag.
