Strappy love

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.

Style trotting – Summer ponies

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.
 

creative1new 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.

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.

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.
