Summer dressing is often associated with shades of whites and palettes of pastel hues. All the dark and deep shades of winter make way for more light and gleaming colors. And just like that our wardrobes are transformed into a summer haven.
Pastels don’t necessarily have to be reserved for a beach vacation or just for Sundays with friends and family. It can easily settle into other occasions and dress codes as well. After all, what good is a color palette if it isn’t versatile.
The right kind of Blues
We absolutely love this pastel blue kurti for a Wednesday at work. Just when the week is beginning to feel too long or when you wake up with a fresh summer spring in your step. This kurti paired with cotton leggings or a pair of white jeans is the outfit you need to reflect that vibe. Style this look with silver or white strappy flats and you’re all set to sip on some nimbo-pani while you crush those deadlines.
Scream for Cream
A dressy occasion in the summer is always anticipated and much welcomed as a reason to deck-up in flowy fabrics in buttery shades. We love this outfit because it reminds us of pecan ice-cream, with shades of beige and white perfectly layered together to create a vision of summer longings. Style this look with gold peep-toes or juttis and minimal gold accessories. Now, all we can think of is getting some ice-cream and enjoying it while the sun slowly melts it into a soft yummy milkshake. Oh summers!
Sari, too busy looking like a summer bloom
Just like a go-to top or kurti for the season, one must have a sari for the season. So that when the need arises, there is no worry but just answers. The sari that is our pick is this georgette beauty which is a delicate balance of a mix of pastels in blue, melon, and pink. Style it with a cream or silver waist-belt and tassel earrings in a bright sunshine yellow. We love this piece because its most reflective of all things summer .
It’s always the season for Gold
Our love for a shimmering shade of gold is equivalent to our love for a lazy summer day spent in a hammock sipping something delightfully sweet and cold. An outfit with a balance of ivory and gold is a keeper and one that can be repeated many times over the years. We like this chanderi for it’s fine embroidery work and its versatility in being able to dress it up with big jhumkas or dressing it down with classy pearls. Set your hair in soft loose curls and you have yourself a look to turn heads.
Two trends one Tunic
Tie & Dye is big this season and what better way to enjoy the trend than to blend in a pastel pink into the mix. We chose this tunic because it reminds us of a strawberry ice-gola and any piece of clothing which can create that kind of imagery is worth having. Style this tunic with white jeans or tuck it into a high-waist pastel pink skirt and slip into a pair of white sneakers. Throw on your favorite shades and head out to meet your favorite girlfriends .
Pastels like to Party too
Last on our list of summer pastel favorites is a shade of iridescent green which plays with a light shade of green and a pop of turquoise. We choose this piece for it’s potential in styling, you can wear it with a pista green saree but also with high-waisted linen pants in creamy white, pista green, or powder blue. Now, if that isn’t a power packed pastel look, nothing is. Style with platform sneakers if you’re going with the pants.
