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.

BAD HAIR DAYS in sticky summer heat? Just grab a scarf and convert it into an uber cool turban to keep your hair in place and get that boho chic look while at it. Learn how to tie a turban in this video, try it at home, and send us your pics to firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to see how you rock this look.
WHEN IT COMES to sarees, look no further than Vidya Balan for inspiration. Among her bodycon clad peers, she has made the saree her own and has become the ambassador of this six yard wonder, even internationally.
There are sarees, and there are crisp, cotton sarees that are so earthy and elegant that they look great on women of all ages. This summer, ditch those synthetic ones in favour of cotton sarees and give them your own special touch. Instead of a regular blouse, wear the saree with a crop top, a button down shirt or even a light jacket.
Cotton sarees are great to experiment with, since they don’t slip and slide like chiffon and silks, and the fabric keeps you cool in summer. You can wear them all day long. So refresh your office wear and sport a saree today.
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.
