Crop and tank tops
The coolest fashion item of clothing to own in summer. The outfit rather suggests itself, right? It is a must-have in your wardrobe. Not only does it look ‘cool’, it acts cool to. These are short tops with thin shoulder straps. Or none at all! They might be body hugging or with a loose fit. Essentially they are midriff-baring outfits. It is great if you have a flat tummy to flaunt. If not, it’s ok too. Who cares after all! It is the comfort that sets the tone, right?
Another outfit that spells summer. These are available in a variety of styles, colours and fabrics. Have a word with your outfit planner regarding ones best suited for you. Each of you has a different body type. What suits one might not work on another. Try out various styles to find the perfect one. One might also use Chicisimo for suggestions and ideas.
Thinking beyond cottons is quite criminal in summers, right? Cotton is the most skin-friendly fabric out there. Make sure to make a place for cotton tees in your wardrobe. There are colours and styles galore. Your outfit planner will compulsorily advise having a white tee. This is because it pairs easily with any other colour. In addition go for tees in pastels shades. The plainer they are, the more suited for summer. Give the embellished ones a miss. Deep necklines and loose fits help with airiness and coolness.
This one is a fashion clincher, ladies. Very much in style these days, try them out. Essentially long shirts, they are also called boyfriend shirts because of loose fit. They sit loosely upon you. They finish just above the knee generally. A tee shirt dress too falls in this bracket. Except for the fabric and styling, both answer to a general description. Shop for a belt to go with this. The belt gives definition and shape. Of course how you choose the belt depends on your shirt. Narrow or wide, plain or plaited, bold or subtle, you take the call. You can also look for suggestions on Chicisimo.
The accent here in on ‘white’, ladies. You will definitely feel braver to face the sun when clad in white. Go for the lighter denims in white. The advantage is you can pair these with any colour top of your choice. As long as you settle for light shades and fabrics, you are summer ready. Stock up your wardrobe with this today, because definitely white jeans are one of the 10 basics to wear in summer.
Coolest and most comfortable fabric for summers. Every designer opts for this fabric for the hotter months. Best part is- every kind of outfit is being made out of them. Be is shirts, tops, skirts or trousers. Your outfit planner can suggest the best ones for you. Linen collection is a must in your summer closet. They are a bit difficult to maintain though. One needs to iron these and properly fold and store. The comfort and the advantage of the fabric are all worth it though. Go for linens, girls.
Airy, summery and cool, literally. Palazzos are designed so that you keep airy in the hot months. These fit snugly at the waist but then flare and flow like pyjamas. Ideal for summer wear. The beauty of this outfit is that it can be super casual as well as semi-formal. Depends on the material you choose, as well as the top and accessories. Flexible and fashionable at the same time.
Just cannot stress on this more. Must, must, must own these in your wardrobe. How else would you give your feet some respite? No way can you imprison them in closed shoes. Let the closed ones be kept aside for office if you wish. And then lovely open footwear for your galas. For every other time in summer go for sandals. There is nothing more comfortable than slipping your feet into them. Get a range of these today.
Sunhats and sunshades
Not every summer basic need be about clothes, right? It is the overall look you are aiming for. Sunhats and sunshades protect your hair and eyes from the harmful UVs. Not only that, they bring in a dash of style that is amazing. Invest in high grade UV-resistant sunshades though. Not only your eyes but the delicate skin around them needs protection. Also, go for broad-brimmed, floppy straw and crochet hats. Talk to your outfit planner for the perfect summer look.
Last but definitely not the least of our 10 basics to wear in summer. Taking care of your skin is a must in summer. Avoid tanning and sunburns with a good sunscreen. It is a summer essential to see you through the harsh months. Remember to check for the SPF value before you pick one. The damage caused by UV rays can be immense. And the repercussions many. Take all steps to protect yourself before you go out. This is a must-wear in summer.
