This monsoon is all about saying bye to your maxi dresses, trousers and long pants even if culottes. Style shorts, tunics, short dresses, playsuits, calf-length pants and dresses. This season it’s all about wearing lightweight fabrics, like muslin, lycra, cotton, poly-nylon. Bold prints are in this season. You can try styling prints with basic shorts or skirts. Try to style your entire look with minimal accessories and not very heavy, something just like a statement neckpiece. Add a nice pair of rubber shoes, jelly shoes, crocks and buy neutral colours so that you can pull them on any outfits easily. When it comes to dresses, stick to A-line silhouettes.
