Those lovely outings in the month of may now seems like an old memory to me. Nearly, after staying two and a half months in the comfort of loungewear at home ( a heartful gratitude towards my cotton pyjamas). Unknowingly , one day there was an uncomfortable urge of wearing something comfortable yet fashionable took me and I ended up finding out my summer dress . It was a pretty beautiful nostalgia of past memories when I was allowed to roam around the city without getting the fear of coronavirus.
As a fashion lover , I religiously follow and preach the do's for summer . Scrolling on instagram I try to stay aware about the latest trends. When it comes for summer shopping ,I tend to makeup my mind before spending up my money :- 1.) Natural fibres - I always try to choose natural fibers like cotton and nylon to beat the tremendous heat of June. Afterall, 'breathability is most important’. 2.) Loose & flowy style - I try to add this style in my wardrobe for having a cool , chick summer dressing. 3.) Summer colours- I always try to find fresh pieces with different colours like coral, fresh hue yellow for vibrant and easy look. 4.) Sleeves are the best friends- direct sunlight damages your skin so I keep in mind that it's important to cover and protect the skin from sun. 5.) Open- weave knits - for enjoying the lovely cool breeze of summer , I try to layer the clothes with open weave knits.
What one thing I have noticed is the boom in fashion industry we have witnessed various trends in a span of few years. The shoe worn over pants was a complete standout for the fashion lovers- whether for an office metting or grabbing friends down the street , this is completely a refreshing take on classic style to the mini bags which has its own talking in the town. Remember that Lizzo's mini bag ?
