5 Dresses your summer wardrobe should have

When people of the West embrace summer after confronting the chilling winter, people in the eastern countries, mainly South Asian countries have to gear up to give a tough fight to the scorching heat they experience. Thus, Indians, Sri Lankan, Bangladeshi and Pakistani women mainly focus on shopping for cotton clothes like hand block print kurta sets, cotton dresses, angrakha, Anarkali suits and so on to beat the heat of the months, particularly from late March until the onslaughts of the fall season.  

If you are an Indian and have to go out quite often in the sun whether for attending your college, university, jobs or for any errand, wearing a summer-friendly ajrakh kurta set is all that you need. Add cotton, chiffon, crepe, and linen fabrics to your summer wardrobe. Likewise, pick your accessories. Choose lightweight regular jewellery, shoes and even khadi bags to complete your summer look.

Here are the five dresses your summer wardrobe should have—

Cotton co-ord sets 

 Despite keeping a huge stock of cotton sanganeri print kurti sets, opt for buying cotton co-ord sets. Co-ords are twin dresses where the top and bottom are made of the same fabric and the same print. You can wear these dresses at your workplace as well as pick up your child from school.

Besides the formal and semi-casual, you can pick a party wearable co-ord set whether with hot pants and miniskirts with a tank top and shrugs. From attending summer parties to enjoying your beach holidays, these wearable ensures sheer comfort, style and trend.

Block print cotton kurta & short tops

Despite picking up a few tops and kurtas of plain texture, you can also go for indigo print kurti sets or co-ords. These Kathiawari block prints or indigo-dyed fabrics rule across India, making indigo kurtis, tops, kaftans, and dresses hot-selling pieces throughout the country.

Besides purchasing long kurtas on sanganeri blocks and indigo, your closet should also have short tops whether with sleeves or noodle straps to pair up with your skirts or trousers.

Pick khadi pants instead of jeans 

If you love wearing jeans then to be honest, Indian summers don’t approve of jeans. Instead, pick up 10% khadi cotton pants for are made of more breathable fabric that can keep you cool and less sweaty throughout the day. Those who have to stay outdoors can also pick cotton trousers along with a khadi cotton shirt in block prints or threadwork to stay comfortable in the sun for longer hours.

Indigo & kalamkari cotton dresses 

Wear cotton dresses for summer. Despite being an evergreen and all-season favourite women’s attire, cotton dresses can be your ideal summer wearable whether you’re off to your workplace or any event.

Summer jackets are a must 

Summer jackets created of linen fabrics or 100% cotton material give a distinct sharpness to your entire look. Your closet should have a white, black and navy blue jacket that you can mix and match with any summer dress you pick. Even with cotton pants and a shirt, such a jacket will lift your formal avatar.
