Nikita Agarwal from PenTwister shares four chic summer looks that bring together the best of comfort and style – everything you need to face the sweltering heat without missing a beat.
#1 – Oversized dresses are casual, airy and chic which is why they are perfect for hot and humid Indian summers. Pick one in a subtle soothing colour, you can never go wrong with a simple white or cream but you can also try fun pastel shades if you want. The whole idea is to keep it simple and fresh.
#2 – No longer a male domain, dhoti pants are extremely versatile, airy and comfortable. Available in multiple fabrics and prints, dhoti pants gives you multiple styling options to play with. You can pair the pants with a shirt/crop top/waist coat or just a t-shirt for running casual errands.
#3 – Culottes look good on all age-groups. They are also available in different sizes. You can opt for one that comes right above your knees or one that is closer to your ankles. If you are looking for a change from your usual cotton work pants then this could be a nice alternative.
#4 – If you like wearing skirts but are not very comfortable with something too short then you should opt for a midi skirt. Trendy and chic, you can wear them to work as well as to casual get-togethers with friends and family. They come in a variety of lovely colours and prints. Pair your midi skirt with a cute crop top and you are good to go.
