From Santoshi Shetty to Aayushi Bangur, these real girls show you how to adopt the best summer trends and make them your own.
5 summer trends to try now
The key to nailing street style needn’t always involve complicated ensembles and tricky layering. Graphic prints in vibrant palettes are turning heads just as easily this summer. Find one that reflects your personality and top it off with high-waisted pants. Pepe Jeans’ Spring/Summer ’17 collection should give you the headstart you need with their tropical prints and cool-girl dungarees.
The style mandate for the season is strictly go bold or go home. Military tones, botanical prints and feminine ruffles are dictating the mood this summer. Riya Jain, from Caught in a Cuff, works earthy tones and bell bottoms for daywear.
Blue all day, everyday
If rose gold was the colour of the year in 2016, blues are steadily taking over our fashion conscience this year. And we aren’t talking about plain ol’ stonewashed jeans either. Batik prints, tie-dye, vintage patchworks: Take cues from North Eastern fashionista Aien Jamir who nails tone-on-tone with an organic printed shirt and denim skirt.
The playsuit (and rompers alike) are an effortless route to chic, whether you're heading to a seaside café or catching up with the girls for a movie. This denim all-in-one manages to tick two key trend boxes at once. Kavya D’Souza reminds us that there is more than one way to style a playsuit.
Borrowed from the boys
Give your wardrobe an instant boost (without spending a dime!) by borrowing a few key items from your boyfriend’s closet to work into your outfits. An oversized button-down is good for much more than just a walk of shame! It looks great paired with everything from ripped jeans to cut-offs. Aien Jamir pairs hers oversized white linen shirt with cool boyfriend jeans.
