We all await the summer months to start sporting our favorite dresses and skirts. The transitions of our wardrobes from the gray winter months to the sunny days are seamless, as we navigate the terrain of the latest trends in fashion. However, the tricky bit is to find one’s groove when dressing up for occasions over the summer. Is red too much? What colors work well? Is black even acceptable? Are just some of the questions that boggle our minds. We at Exclusively decode the colors that you need to look out for as you shop for the summer occasions ahead.
Beige Is Not Just For The Old: The color that resonates elegance, beige is back in the trend books this season. With it’s subtlety and softness this color is also perfect for summer occasion dressing. This Ashima Leena beige lengha with pearls and applique is the perfect blend of elegance and modernism and the color is beautifully complemented by floral applique work. Peaches Are Perfect: One color that stands out amongst the wave of pinks is peach. A refreshing color that we at Exclusively definately recommend this for the summer. With peach color, tonal details and inticate zardozi embroideries, our favorite is the blush peach lehenga with gota patti work by Anita Dongre. Maneuvering Around Gold. A difficult trend to master, because there is definitely a thing called, ‘too gold’, our advice would be to stick to the rustic variations of gold. We at Exclusively adore this Joy Mitra lehenga as it manages to look regal by using a duller tone of gold, balancing it with elements of beige and black. Black Is Always A Good Idea: Black is one of the few colors that work for every occasion no matter what time of the year. The trick is to keep it minimal in order to balance the strong presence this color already has. With flowing silhouette in black punctuated by floral details and mirror work on the bodice, a great example of how one can never go wrong with black is this suit by Arpita Mehta.
