We are already in the middle of summers and going by the heat life is getting quite difficult as it is. We are constantly on the lookout for some source to cool us off and keep it cool. But we fashionistas have to look good and stylish as well, haven’t we? Fashion is an ever-changing thing. If something is trending this year, it might not be the same next year and so on and so forth. Thus, we are always on the lookout for new trends, new choices. India has evolved a lot in matters of fashion and we no longer hide behind the age-old beliefs towards a certain set of clothes. Instead, women are getting more comfortable in their skin and shedding off all their inhibitions. Thus we have compiled five fashion choices, which are stylish, trending in 2018 and yet are bound to keep your comfortable and cool this summer.
The main highlights of fashion trends which all famous designers seem to have focused this summer are pastel shades. Dark, bright on-your-face hues are out this summer. Instead, this is the year of monochrome pastel shades, with cool tones in deep colours if at all. Monochromes are in. Also, if you are going for prints then small flowery prints are not the fashion hit this year. As largely exhibited by designer Sabyasachi in his Spring-Summer Couture 2018, this season is for large bold floral prints in pastel shades, minimal makeup, and heavy or eye-catching jewellery. Nude eyes with bold lippies and bronzed face with chic and statement jewellery is the way to go this summer.
