Summer lovin’ – Mint Green

LEMONADES, MOJITOS AND ice creams, what’s not to love about summer when you surround yourself with things that are refreshing to the senses and cool to the eyes. We are talking about mint green, the soft tint of a bluish green colour that we are looking forward to see more of, this summer.

Spotted on Sonam Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Shraddha Kapoor in India and on Hollywood ladies Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Connelly, this pastel hue has universal appeal.

Aamir Khan and Ayushmann Khurranna rocked the coloured bottom trend with bright shades of mint. They show that mint is an easy colour for guys to wear too; you can pick a tee or a casual shirt, or try out coloured chinos with a white or grey shirt.

Mint green can be your go to colour this summer, be it on crop tops, dresses or even diaphanous sarees for summer weddings. Enhance the colour with gold accents, in the form of a geometric statement necklace or strappy heels. But do try out this colour on your nails; a fresh, minty manicure is your quickest way to wear summer’s favourite colour.

Top it off with baseball caps

The unassuming baseball cap has got a nod of approval from across design houses this season. Tibi, Lacoste, DKNY and Rodarte have given a glamorous spin to its drab old sporty version, taking it forward from its luxe avatar.

Rihanna’s fondness towards the trend shows that they are more than just sun-protecting accessory. Likewise celebrities like Katrina Kaif, Miley Cyru, popularblogger Sussie Bubble have been sporting baseball caps. Amongst the men who can’t have enough of the trend are Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Johnny Depp.

Baseball caps can certainly give a va-va-voom spin to your casual as well as formal look! And the good news is that they are easy to style too.

Try teaming a printed flowy dress with a matching monotone beanie.

The pop-of-colour trend will take a whole new dimension when a bright cap gets teamed with muted hues.

Quick fix your bad hair days with a fun cap.

 

Bollywood Fridays – 2 States

LOVE KNOWS NO boundaries and least of all boundaries between two states. Thus, Krish Malhotra (Arjun Kapoor) and Ananya Swaminathan (Alia Bhatt) have to fight many deep-seeded social and cultural perceptions dragged on by generations to hope for a life together. The film, 2 States, adopted from Chetan Bhagat’s novel by the same name, will sure be worth a watch as we trace the journey of this couple through many ups and downs in their relationship.

While you can expect to come across many shades of emotions in the film, do watch out for as many colours in the styling done on the characters.

Given the modern-day urban setting of the film, the leading lady is dressed in Indo-western clothing, opting majorly for ghagroos and kurtas teamed with silver jewellery. Ananya’s style reflects the character’s liberal thoughts but conservative roots. Krish is styled in denims and cargos teamed with jackets in solid colours. Specs add a nerdy touch.

The styling on both the characters reflects the fashion sense of a typical Indian college student. Sure the youth will associate with the colourful kurtas, silver jewellery, jackets, cargos, denims and backpacks.

Oh Ombre!

WATERY COLOURS MERGING into each other for a soft and dreamy effect – ombre is what we are crushing on this summer. The lovely Aditi Rao Hydari wears it to perfection with pink and purple palazzo pants by Nachiket Barve, who is known for using ombre extensively.

The watercolour like effect of ombre shading reminds us of crushed ice candies and that’s what makes it perfect to chill out in the scorching summer heat.

Ombre is not limited to women’s fashion; men can wear it too. Your basic t-shirt gets a new look when it has an ombre shading, and is sure to make you stand out as you step out for some weekend fun.
