Three wishes: three major trends this summer

Here are three easy looks to add instant style to your summer. Inspired by the summer collections from runway Designers, these looks are easy to copy. They won’t rip your pockets; all you need to do is look around for the pattern that suits your shape and personality the best.


(1)    Dotty days

: Add a little craziness into your summer with polka- dots. Look out for head scarves in bright dots to give yourself a 60’s look. Alternatively this can be done with broad dotted bangles. Going for polka dots in pastels and nudes can give a very refined and lady- like effect. Add a string of pearls to glamourize the look. It is best to keep the dots medium sized. Restrict it to one piece of your ensemble at a time; do not wear dots on both your skirt and your top. Strictly avoid dotted trousers!

Polka dot Dress



(1)    Go Sailing

: The nautical look gives a very carefree and spirited look. The simplest way to get this right is to use the sailor’s collar on your dresses, blouses or overcoats. Sailor Jackets (think Kate Moss) worn with jeans give a casual yet elegant look. Navy strips are on a t-shirt or tube top look very nautical.  A combination of white and blue with a bit of red completes the look. Accessorize with anchor or yatch shaped earrings and pendants. Charm bracelets with Pirate motifs, like the one from Marc by Marc Jacobs further the look.

The Nautical Look

(1)    Flower power

:  Use flowery prints in summer hues of green, yellow and cream on dresses.  Hand cuffs and hair bands with sewed-on flowers look fashionable.  Floral prints go very well with the maxi dress. If you intend to keep the hem high, try keeping the sleeves longer. Go for sleeves that have a puff where it joins the shoulder or where it joins the cuff. Accessorize with a solid-coloured belt. Elastic waists compliment this look well. Flowy chiffons give this look an ultra- feminine feel, but if you want it to look more disco, try t-shirt dresses with floral prints. Look up for these.
