Summers are upon us like white on rice. Though the markets are full of shorts and crop tops, there’s something very comfortable and elegant about wearing Indian ethnic wear. No, we’re not talking about heavy embellished pieces here. Instead we’re talking about must-have pieces to add to your summer wardrobe:
1) Hi-low kurtas
Choose high low kurtas, or those with waterfall hemlines in pastel shades and wear it with tights to pay homage to the sultry summer days ahead. This particular piece is in a printed blue fabric and comes in a sleeveless design with mandarin collar. The design lends itself beautifully to casual evening wear too.
2) Solid cotton kurti suits
A white cotton kurti set with palazzo pants is a must try for this season. It’ll help you stay cool all day in style. The simple minimalism of the piece only adds to its appeal. This versatile set can be worn anywhere provided you accessorise it right. You can even dress it up for evenings with a printed dupatta and gold accessories.
3) Indigo dyed pieces
Block prints and indigo dyed pieces are summer staples. Combine the two and you have a winner like the piece shown above. Indigo blue is soothing to the eye on bright sunny days. Plus this kurti is a great way to show off the artisanal skills of Indian craftsmen too. Wear it with palazzos or ankle length cotton pyjamas.
4) Salwar kameez
A salwar kameez set is essential to a good Indian ethnic wardrobe. For summers, you needn’t choose a gaudy set with heavily embellished fabric. Instead, you can opt for something simple like this beige salwar kameez with minimal embroidery.
5) Cotton tunics
Cotton tunics are an elegant alternative to shirts for the summer. They can be easily paired with capris to create effortlessly chic summer looks.
