The summer heat definitely calls for a wardrobe revamp. One needs to stock away all the winter wear, jeans and other tight-fitting clothes as it’s almost impossible to wear them now. That’s where fluid clothes like palazzo pants and kurtas are coming out and making everything fashionable these days.

While palazzo pants have been in vogue for quite some time, it’s the straight-cut kurtas that are making the rounds now. It allows one to feel free and comfortable.

Some even wear them for grand occasions like weddings and engagements.

Princy Mascarenhas, a blogger at ‘The Jeromy Diaries’, loves to make a difference with her style. She says, “It’s important that you stand out when you wear something but you need to be comfortable in them as well. That’s what palazzo pants paired with kurtas do for me. I love these fluid clothes because they are different, easy and loved by all. It’s ideal for this season as I can buy them in cotton and walk around freely.” The colour combinations that she likes to wear are either monochrome or the classic green and pink. She either pairs them with stilettoes or ballet shoes and adds the right amount of accessories to match. “If I’m going to a special function like a wedding or ‘sangeeth’, I prefer wearing a heavier designed kurta and palazzo pants with stilettos,” she adds.

With ‘comfort calling’ being the motive of this appealing combination, Aishwarya Kannan, a marketing manager at ‘Funizen’, is also adopting this new trend.
She says, “I find it difficult to get clothes that fit me as I am a pretty tall. So wearing kurtas has been one of my favourite options. And because it’s summer, I prefer wearing them with palazzo pants. I can move freely and go on about my day without worrying about the heat.”

Krupa Lakshminarayanan, blogger at ‘Ishtyle A While’, believes that palazzos with kurtas is the perfect combinations for this summer. She explains, “The advantage of this combination is that you can either wear them as daily wear or for special occasions. However, one must be careful about the length of the kurta. If it’s too long, it might make you look short and not show the palazzo pant at all.” Even though  the fluid outfit is in trend right now, she says that it’s not been explored enough.

As for Jeena Jones, a student, this is a simple combination that she can wear to college.  She explains, “Unfortunately we don’t have fans in my all my classes so it’s extremely hot. But with loose clothes like this, it sort of helps us beat the heat. I 
try and shop as much as I can to keep myself summer ready with palazzo and
