We love how the mood of summer wafts in slowly and then all of a sudden, in a month or two the trees are laden with beautiful flowers, mangoes are ripening to bursting shades of yellow and orange, and just like that it’s bright and cheerful everywhere you go.
What do we love most about summer though? That’s easy.
Sunny colours, exuberant prints, light fabrics, and shiny design details.
And speaking of the things we love, we at Soch have curated our top summer picks and they are yours for the taking.
One can never really have too many cotton kurtas in their wardrobe and what better time to add a few more than now. This kurta with a red flower print is versatile and can easily transition from a casual day at work to a weekend of chai-date.
Style with red palazzo pants and white single-strapped sandals and accessorize with red tassel earrings.
How can we talk about summer fashion and not focus on a kurta in mellow yellow. This chikankari style kurta screams the turn of seasons from gloomy to bright.
Style this with linen pants in off-white and light brown jhuttis. Accessorize with moonstone jewelry to make the embroidery on the kurta pop.
All cool and breezy
Summer shopping this season will also feature some icy shades of blue and green and for those of us who aren’t all about the bright colours, this is a refreshing fashion update. This kurta in a frosty shade of blue with a shimmery gold print fits the bill perfectly.
Style with leggings in the same shade of blue or a shade darker. Accessorize with wooden detail earrings.
New Shades of Brown
We are loving the fact that the humble shade of brown is making a loud comeback with a revamped image of being a shade of sophistication. This kurta is not only a trendy buy for this season, it is also summer worthy because of the flared design.
Style with chocolate brown flared pants to accentuate the flare of the kurta or cigarette pants for a slicker look. Accessorize with pearl hoops.
No list for summer would be complete without a stunning showstopper. This chanderi saree in a pastel palette and pink roses is exactly what this season is all about. Light, happy, and joyous.
Style this with a crop top or blouse in bright pink with mirrorwork. Accessorize with mega jhumkis in gold.
While shopping for your fresh new summer staples, throw in two essentials lipstick shades you’re going to need, a shade of peachy orange and a pink nude.
