After the bohemian trend, we are taking a peek at short outfits for the summer and how you can add the two trends of gingham and light prints in muted tones to rock the summer season!
Summer trends cannot be complete without a collection of short outfits. The heat is high and as the hemlines get shorter, you can easily add to the hotness quotient by picking the right styles and cuts to add to your summer sizzle.
I’ve chosen two ways to wear short outfits for the summer. You can either go bold in a vibrant green or opt for a muted shade if that suits your personality. The idea is to keep it light and fun while being comfortable. I’ve found a fantastic collection at RMZ Galleria, Yelahanka New Town, and I’ve combined the look this time with footwear from Soles.
Summer Fashion: Trend 1
Soft and breezy playsuits are one of my picks for the summer fashion trend. I’ve given the denim shorts a miss and opted for a gingham patterned playsuit from Global Desi. This tangy lime green outfit mixed with shades of yellow is right on spot as a summer fashion trend. I’ve combined the Global Desi outfit with geometrical accessories. These are light, easy to wear and does not overpower the look. I’ve combined it with contrast bag that looks like my personal mini-fan. I love the detailing on the bag and it will definitely hold the basic essentials. I’ve worn these with white heels from Soles (RMZ Galleria Mall, Yelahanka, Bangalore). You can also combine the look with flats if you’d like to wear it to a casual summer poolside party.
What is Gingham?
Gingham refers to the plain fabric that is woven to create a variety of patterns in checks or striped effects.Â
This is typically made using a cotton or a woven cloth.
There is a use of symmetry to create a checkered pattern.
The overlapping pattern of the stripes of the same colour creates the effect.
Summer Fashion: Look 2
I’ve picked breezy summer shorts from Global Desi. I’ve particularly liked these for the shade in mustard and light prints all over. I love the little sash around the waist! The plain white top is accentuated with geometrical prints and has a little frill around it to add to the summery look.
I’ve combined this look with ivory white footwear with embellishments from Global Desi. I’ve loved creating this look with the colourful bangles and continued with large statement earrings that again reflect the geometrical shapes trending for summer fashion. The blue bag creates a strong contrast.
