Most women prefer flaunting their Indian outfits in summers than in winters, especially the outfits in tones of lighter colour palettes. Indian Summers can get really harsh and hot, and for those who have experienced it, do know. It is almost like bathing in sweltering heat if you even dare to move out in the peak hours that is around 12 noon to 4 pm on a regular summer day. Constant hydration becomes a key concern and so does wearing comfortable summer clothes that make you feel cooler and are also go easy on the skin. Yet, style shall never be compromised with.
I have always been an ardent lover of the typical summer colours, be it pastels, neutrals, or the whites. And though I do love to adorn those power pant suits and formal wear dresses when I head out to work, I equally love flaunting Indian wear in these Summer colours. Lavender, white and beige being my favourite summer colours when it comes to an Indian outfit. It’s a classic statement if a woman in power is seen wearing an Indian outfit for a work meeting and carrying it off with the same elegance and panache that she would do a formal wear.
Summer Indian Outfit in White
White is unquestionably one of the favourite colors for the summer season. It has a connotation of understated elegance to it. You can wear white and style it in so many ways. You can add a pop of colour, keep it all white or just colour block it with one statement accessory. An Indian outfit in white or off white colour looks even more sophisticated than its colored counterparts when it comes to dressing up for a summer event. For a Summer daytime family function, I decided to wear a sharara suit in white. Ditching the regular salwar suit, I found this look in the latest collection of designer Mansi Malhotra’s label ‘Ek soot’. It is a white jacket bearing colored applique flowers on the top paired with a flowy white sharara in pure chiffon. The sharer was particularly very voluminous, flowy and spread out as compared to what you normally get. I fell in love with the simplicity yet the elegant vibe of the whole outfit. The applique work in bright summer colors very well bought out the summer playfulness and vibrance in the look.
Since the color of the outfit was white, I wasn’t really sure of the jewellery that I should pair it up with. Stone, studded jewellery, polki or kundans would have looked were jarring with the whole look. Diamonds would have been a misfit. To give this Indian outfit a more rustic feel, I decided in favour of wearing a lot of silver jewellery with it. I have to admit, I do have a soft spot for silver jewellery for some reason.
Since it was a celebratory event, the roka ceremony of my friend, I wanted to add some pop of a bright colour. Red lipcolour, felt like a befitting choice to go with the serenity of the white color of the outfit. Rest of the makeup was kept light. Just some natural soft dewy base that would make my skin glow in the summer sun. For summer afternoons, one should ideally avoid too heavy a makeup as no matter, how water proof the makeup is, it can still melt and run over your face in that direct sun heat. Also, since the event was taking place in an open lawn, I had wanted to not take any risks.
