Fashion changes quickly and that’s what girls love most about seasons.

Summer, winter or monsoon, fashion has always been evolving.

At a time when wardrobes are still occupied by the fall collections, designers globally are gearing up with new ideas to spice up your spring and summer.

Here’s a look at a few summer styling options by a few city-based stylists.

Plan your wardrobe for the new season

Clothing trends

This summer, pastels and soft colours can be replaced with loud and bright colours, blending them with the hot summer fashion trends from last year, which include bright white and color-blocking.

These vivid hues are gracing everything from belts and blouses to skirts and shoes, which is quite easy to add to your wardrobe. Girls can go bright and radiant this season. Make it simple and classic yet funky. Linen and cotton have been ruling the ramp everywhere.

White is an obvious colour for summer, but adding a tinge of orange, yellow, green or pink would make your summer wardrobe refreshing. And now moving onto patterns and prints Geometrical or psychedelic prints, contrasting stripes on cotton tunics and kaftans set the trend.

Kurtis and cotton shorts, linen pajamas with tank tops, cotton and chiffon scarfs topped off with trendy sun glasses and a fedora, complements the fashionista.

Gone are the days of tough denims. Bring in the lite linens and let the bohemian image in you float this summer. Pair up mini skirts with straw hats or also maxi gowns varying in length from knee to ankle.

Get rid of the blacks and bring in the heavenly whites, peaches and creams.

But, why should girls have all the fun? Cream and whites for men add to the sober yet fashionable. Ankle cropped trousers, linen pajamas, cotton shirts with cotton shorts, light coloured polo neck T-shirts, paired with sun-glasses bring out the summer mood.

Foot wear

Being out in the heat wi thout comfor t abl e footwear is a complete nono this season.

A pair of straw-heeled wedges, flip-flops, modern boat shoes, gladiators, snickers or loafers would look great and are best for the heat.

On top of the list this year are metallic toes, braided sandals in unusual braiding styles and bright colors, shining shoes in golden and silver colours, transparent shoes and pointed toes.

Metallic toes have become the most popular trend in the 2012 collection and the braided sandals are all set to enhance the oomph factor of the beauties.

Though the transparent shoes from 2011 didn’t appeal much to anyone last year, this time around the trend has picked up.

Rounded toes have finally taken a backseat, giving way to pointed toes.

So what are you waiting for? Go grab your pair of shorts and sandals and beat the heat this year.
