How we used to look forward to summer when we were kids! The ice-creams, the water fights, and most eagerly, the vacation. As you grow up, all the things you loved about summer start showing their dark side. You realize that ice creams are loaded with calories, water fights have given way to water scarcity, and there is no summer holiday from the office. Without all these to mellow the heat, summer does begin to feel never-ending.
What you need to brighten up your mood on these sweltering summer days, are infusions of colors. Colors that remind you of all the lovely things about summer, like blooming flowers, popsicles and the license to wear white without looking like Jeetendra! Our Bollywood stars have paid tribute to these lovely shades in laudable style, and it is about time you do, too.
This is a shade that never grows old and whether you sport it in denim or chiffon, you are sure to look suited to the season, just like Sonam Kapoor.
Of all the shades of bougainvillea and there are so many, this is the easiest to pull off. You can carry this off even if you don’t have Katrina Kaif’s flawless complexion.
Sonam’s clearly a fashionista who knows how to dress for the season! This shade of yellow is bright enough to make you stand out without blinding the people around you.
If you must go bright, this is the color to go for (remember orange lolly?!). Do make sure that the fabric is cotton, and the cut is suited to the season, like Alia Bhatt’s dress in this picture.
Deepika Padukone shows us a classic way to wear white – pair it with tan or green accessories and you’ll be feeling as fresh as a daisy, all day long.
While this is not traditionally seen as a summery color, Kangana Ranaut shows us that it can be! Mixed with blue, which is always a good choice in this season, the green is stylish and trendy. As is the cut of her dress. You go, girl!
Of course, there are many other colors that are perfect for the summer. You can rarely go wrong with pastels and blues. And if you must wear a bright, in-your-face color, just remember to keep it NFO (Natural Fabrics Only!).
