Sure there’s the sweltering heat to cope with, but there’s no denying the wonders that summer does to your wardrobe. Merry florals and breezy-everything? We’ll have some of that. And thanks to Sabyasachi, Manish Malhotra and the rest of India’s designer powerhouses, you won’t run out of options anytime soon.

Check out these exquisite saris on our radar, then look us in the eye and tell us if you’d still rather cling on to those done-to-death anarkalis.
