Summer is here and it is time to update your wardrobe with trendy items like block heels, cotton dresses and long length garments, say designers.

This year’s Lakmé Fashion Week’s Summer Resort 2015 being focused on street style, many designers recommend some revived and currently trending international garments for the summer. Designer Arunima Majhi talks about the use of cotton that is weaved into most fabrics this summer to add that simplicity and comfort. “Textured cotton is a blend of stronger fabrics with cotton to give the garment shape but also keep the look casual and smart”

With the harshness of the sun, pigmentation and strong tans are never favoured. “Sometimes wearing minimal clothing in the summer can be harsh to our skin, especially in India” says Aiman & Armaan LFW designers. They recommend kedia jacket. The Gujarati jacket is shaped like a trapeze and can be worn loose or buttoned up “It’s light, it protects the skin and it’s a great garment for girls who are conscious of their arms or upper body”. 

Ankle length garments will also trend this summer. The designer duo while suggesting 80 per cent length which is an extremely trending phrase this summer, says,“When I talk about 80 per cent lengths I don’t necessarily mean pants or capris but even long skirts just above the ankle. Feel free to fit on lighter shades and diversify your color palette this summer.” Maxi is the perfect outfit to keep you cool. Keep it simple and just add that extra element of colour and class.
