Stay cool this summer with these light and trendy salwar suits
Global warming has ensured that the summer season gets progressively worse each year, with both heat and humidity levels rising to unbearable levels. Quick to suffer are the fashion followers who love their ethnic wear and fancy embellished salwar suits, but cannot bear to think of wearing such heavy outfits to occasions during the sweltering summer months. Equally quick to come to the rescue however, is an army of trendy and light salwar suits in fabrics which are kind to the skin, and dotted with embellishments that highlight and accentuate the wearer and outfit without overpowering either.
Among the many lightweight fabrics that are recommended to salwar suit wearers, are khadi and cotton. Khadi is lighter than most fabrics and has a rustic appeal of its own, which for some reason, works well with the summer season, especially for those who do not want very many bright colors on their summer color palette. Konkona Sen Sharma, famed for her acting roles in films like “Page 3” and “Luck By Chance”, is known for wearing khadi salwar suits and even sarees in the summer, much like her mother, film director and actress, Aparna Sen. Actress Kangana Ranaut moves with a brighter color palette while selecting her light and trendy salwar suits, she is mostly seen in pastel tones, which complement her fair complexion and delicate figure. Actress and activist Shabana Azmi is a fine example of someone who wears light salwar suits all year round and never fails to exude a classy and sophisticated look with her ensemble.
Pastel tones are in fashion this season for those who want their salwar suits to be subtle and calming. For those who belong to the younger, more trendsetting brigade, look no further than actress Sonam Kapoor and designer Masaba Gupta for your light and trendy salwar suit needs. Both actress and designer appear to share similar wavelengths when it comes to salwar suit fashion in summer, so expect to wear a lot of bright georgette salwar suits in neon or grey tones with plenty of eye catching modern art graphics on them. For those who would simply like suggestions on how to incorporate light but fashion forward salwar suits into their summer wardrobe, there is no dearth of choices when it comes to selecting from amid a range of necklines, lengths, fabrics, and cuts, each of which has its own advantage. Cotton salwar suits in an array of shades can be sourced from anywhere, starting from pavement sales to high street and exclusive designer showrooms; the budget depends on where you are buying your suits. It is recommended to have at least one all white cotton salwar suit ensemble which will come in hand for many Indian occasions.
The main purpose of light and trendy salwar suits is to incorporate a sense of both comfort as well as style into your summer selection of salwar suits, and to give you that fashion forward feeling of confidence minus the heavy fabrics and unnecessary embellishments.
