Summers are finally here in northern India and it's already scorching hot. Now this is the time when you have to take extra care in dressing up if you have to go out for work, a meet up with a friend , a party to attend or just go about shopping. The heat definitely deters us from giving our best shot in getting ready. This has always been a case with me and i am sure with most of us when we really have to put extra efforts to put things together. Summers definitely give us a hard time but this is also the time when you can put your best foot forward if few things are kept in mind. In fact in summers we have a lot of choices when it comes to splurging on the clothes and accessories. So if you take care of certain things in summers, you can manage to rock always even if the sun is not ready to show some mercy on you. Be a little smart and you can actually give sun a tough time. I am going to list down some of the most important tips:
Color of fabric
Nothing beats white color when it comes to selecting cool comfy clothes for summers. Pastel colors are the best for summers because not only they are poor heat absorbers but also give a soothing feel. Please avoid dark colors like black and navy during summers because they look so dull and boring too. Summer season is about wearing soothing colors and while selecting one among these can actually spoil you with lot of options.
Cool and quirky prints
Add some pep and fun element to your outfits by going for some quirky and cool prints. Floral prints are always the best for the summers and look feminine too. Geometric prints, animal prints and jungle prints are so in trend this season. So go out and look your quirky best.
Loose comfy fit clothes
Please ditch the tight outfits and have some mercy on others. Already temperature is over 40 degrees Celsius and your body hugging outfits can wreak havoc not only for you but also on the onlookers. Go for some loose flowy clothes like palazzo that is going to stay in fashion for a while. And they they will make you feel comfy too in such a hot weather. Go for bell sleeved or ruffled sleeved tops that are also trending this season and will help your skin breathe and at the same time protect your hands from tanning.Sheer clothes also work well. You can also go for slit maxi tops which are going strong on the fashion circle.
Please underplay with the makeup. I am sure you don't want to look like a painted canvas spoilt by tiny streams of sweat running over your face. So play it cool, go for a minimal makeup. Being natural with a light water based moisturer and kohled eyes is the best you can do for your pretty face in summers. A light shade lipstick or a lip gloss is just fine for the day time.
Cool accessories to beat the heat
Hats and sheer stoles are perfect for covering your face from sun. And added advantage is that they look cool and you are sure to stand out. And of course you can never go wrong with a pair of cool sunglasses. Go for the reflectors this summers because they are so much trending this season internationally too.
Try to avoid direct sunlight and always wear a sunscreen 30 minutes before stepping out. Also if working outdoors, it should be reapplied after few hours. Lots of water and other liquids are must to keep your skin hydrated. Because no matter how good your outfit is, if your face looks withered and dull then it's no good.
