In India, summer can be a long period of sunny days and windless nights. It can also be a fun season though. Let's get summer ready and celebrate the season in the right spirit.

Pick the light colours




If there's one colour that should define summer fashion, it's white. A versatile colour, white keeps you cool by reflecting heat away from your body.

Lighter shades of other colours also work well in summer. Especially pastel colours like canary yellow, peach and coral. For the perfect summer look, pair pastel colours with neutral colours like beige and coffee shades or grey tones.



Pastel colours can also be paired with other pastel colours like guava, powdery mint and milk caramel.

Let loose




Wear loose-fitting clothes this season. Reduce the area of fabric in contact with your skin to a minimum.

Loose clothing increases ventilation ensuring that you don't feel suffocated in the heat.

Keep it natural




Natural fabrics are breathable, making it the right choice for summer. These fabrics allow air to circulate, cooling the body in the process.

Try cotton and linen fabrics to beat the heat and humidity.

Use protection




Prolonged exposure to the sunlight can be quite deadly. Skin cancer, which is one of the most common forms of cancer, is caused by exposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun.

Use sunscreen especially in the summer to protect your skin from sunburn. It also helps in maintaining an even skintone by preventing discolouration. Sunscreen can also slow the aging of the skin.

Accessorize yourself




Wear accessories that shield you from the sun. A hat can cover your head and face, cooling you down as you step outdoors. Add a scarf to the ensemble to protect your neck and arms.

Keep your eyes safe by wearing sunglasses that are certified for protection from ultraviolet rays.

Minimize your look




Go for a minimal look with jewellery. Choose pieces that go along with your summer wear, while making sure that it doesn't feel suffocative.

Minimal earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets add a subtle charm to your look without overwhelming it.

Do your hair




Go for a summer hairdo to keep your head cool. A braided look works wonders in keeping your hair together and preventing heat absorption.

Short haircuts also help with air circulation while adding spunk to your look.
