Spring-Summer

Arm Candy: Printed clutches

WHILE BACKPACKS AND totes are our day buddies, the twilight demands a much chicer and sleeker mate, the clutches. And, clutches with fancy prints do score a ten-on-ten score on our fashion scale. High on oomph and glamour, the printed clutches are a spring favourite on the runways.

Floral, animal and digital prints are being used to offer varied dimensions to the clutches. While florals in pastel shades speak of a shy and feminine identity, the animal prints reveal boldness. It is indeed time to let your clutch do the talking.

Designers are experimenting with a lot of prints on clutches. Farah Sanjana used the spring favourite pelican wing prints, Pankaj and Nidhi showcased prints inspired by cards and Nikasha used pretty florals on the latest clutch collection.

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.

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.

Keeping cool with cotton sarees

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.
