10 hacks you need to know to keep yourself cool this summer!

It’s sticky, hot and humid outside like never before and it’s getting more and more difficult to get out of the house. When you actually go out your frustration levels rise up like Delhi’s temperature. So what to do? Worry not as I bring to you 10 hacks you need to know to keep yourself cool this summer!

Loose clothes is the key

Think of it as jazzing up your pyjamas into outfits. Yes, the fewer clothes you have touching you, the cooler is your body.

loose dress

 

Try forgetting the padded bra and befriend the soft bralettes

The thicker the layers, the more sweaty is your chest. Therefore, some lightweight barrettes can make summer a bit better for you.

Lightweight but structured tops are preferred.

Light materials like cotton are favourable but, it is better if they have a structure like an embroidery or thick print or pin ups even, since, they will prevent it from sticking it to your body the minute you start sweating.

embroidered cotton topsShop these kinda tops from here

 

Avoid beaded embroidery

They tend to weigh down your clothes making them stick to your body when you sweat. In addition, you can replace these by wearing similar patterns or prints.

Keep a Hat or Scarf handy

These lightweight wonderful things will keep you away from direct contact with the sun. No rocket science here but people often forget this kinda stuff.

Another summer saving hack of a scarf

Wrap a small cotton scarf around your neck to absorb sweat and keep your hair from sticking on your neck.

Try wearing unlined skirts or dresses

Lining in skirts and dressed is mostly synthetic and prevents the passing of air from your clothes thus, trapping you inside a synthetic bag.

Replace your backpack or tote with a sling or handbag

A huge backpack or side tote can feel like carrying stones on a hot summer day. It’s the best time to clean out your bags of all unnecessary stuff and transfer the actual stuff to a sling or a handbag.

sling bag

 

Cover up maximum of your body

As much as you would like to believe otherwise covering up your body will protect you from skin damaging and rising body temperature. Hence, befriend sleeves this summer.

Stick to light colours

Well, you all know this one. Light colours are cooler and dark ones are warmer. So, I recommend you keep a cooler palette this summer.

 Why I think orange is the new black!

Black has always been the ‘all time favourite’ of people who tend to be fashionable, yet it becomes the least choice when summers arrive. There is no doubt that we can say orange is the new black!  The colour has been attracting so many beauty divas. Not only this, it fits with configuration whether you want to wear top, dress, salwar kurta or even saree. Orange blends beautifully with everything and anything you wear.

Mix & Pick

It happens every time with me! And what about you? If your wardrobe is full of clothes and yet you find nothing! Summer has been amazingly defined as a season of excitement and thrill and yes you can wear those old clothes from your wardrobe. Pick the dresses that interest you least and then add some cool accessories to it. Either you make your pale jeans ripped or your Mumma’s suit dupatta to a beautiful scarf.

Women’s love for their clothes and style statement is eternal. And you know how they feel when something is on the trend and they don’t have their stake on them. It feels heart tearing!

It’s always good to know the matter first! And here we are with a bunch of trendy tops for 2017 so that you can have them on track. And, why only tops? Well, tops are the basic picks of every woman and girl because you can pair them with multiple numbers of complementary and bottom wears.

Let’s catch out the evenest list of girls tops to set your wardrobe on fast-track this season.

Bodysuit Tops

Trendy Tops for 2017
Image Souce: India Rush

A bodysuit top looks just like a swimsuit but has many stupendous features. It is one-piece body fitted garment which is tight on the crotch zone and can be loose or free on the torso. It all depends on your style selection if you wish to select full sleeves, half sleeves, butterfly sleeves, or any other kind of sleeves or cuffs or collars.

Style Mashup: Wear yours with palazzos, skirts, figure catching jeans, and culottes.

 

Semi Sleeved Halter Top

Trendy Tops for 2017

Such a cool and free combo are this! Have you ever thought of living a corporate life with a cool mind and happy heart? I know, it is next to impossible but can be tried if you wear a cold shoulder + halter neck + striped top. Isn’t this a cool number?

Style Mashup: Try this type of number with contrasting bottom wears. And try to avoid frilled or baggy skirts, jeans or any type of bottom wear.

 

Layered Shirt

Trendy Tops for 2017

A classic hit when you are heading out to a serious meeting but in your most snappy moods. This is a basic type of shirt but features an extra layering. It also has dual shades and colour block patterns to help you pose the most attractive looks.

Style Mashup: Wear it with a pencil skirt or ripped denim. Apply light foundation or just primer and complement your complete dress with stud earrings.

 

Asymmetrical Top

Trendy Tops for 2017

If you are petite and want some kind of illusion in the list, then add quirk with asymmetrical tops. As their name suggests, these dresses for women are asymmetrical or has unequal halves.

Style Mashup: Team them up with clinging bottom wears to showcase the swirl of the top.

 

One Side Off Shoulder Top

This is the year’s hit! In this type of online dresses, you will find only one sleeve complete while the other part will look like off shouldered. They come in different patterns and designs but all are wonderful to give at least a try.

Style Mashup: Pair them with fabricated chokers and brag off like a princess.

 

Bralette Top

Can you go little bolder? Yes, this for the all the Kardashians around! Try out bralette top with boot leg jeans or palazzos to get most of the attention. You can some bronze to your cleavage area and can add stars to your complete appeal.

Style Mashup: Another path to wear this is with a long frilled shrug or extremely tight long shirt which you can open it up and strut.

If money was no object what would you add to your closet?

 

How amazing would it be if money is of no concern while shopping!!  

Well, of course, every other girl would like to grab each and every possible thing that would go perfectly with her curves. So if there were no money boundation I would have chosen the following variants of clothes in my wardrobe.

If money was no object what would you add to your closet?

Traditional

Today’s generation is totally into western clothes as they think they look cool and comfortable and no doubt it is correct to some extent. But when it’s about priorities and money has no bar I would select the traditional ones at the first. The main reason why I would like to choose these kinds of attire is very predictable that every Indian girl looks beautiful when it comes to suits, sarees or lehengas.If money was no object

If money was no object

If money was no object

Dresses

A-line and off shoulder dress are the ones that have changed the era of women dresses in 2017. Therefore not selecting them would do them no justice. So I would keep these dresses on the second on my priority list and take them as many as possible.

If money was no object

If money was no object

Casuals

People usually avoid casual clothes because they always think of having party wear dresses and all but I would love to add casual and loose t-shirts and tops and with them would shop for cool flip-flops which complement them.

If money was no object

If money was no object

Shorts and skirts

These are the best thing designers would have made for girls like me. I would grab all the different patterns and designs of shorts & skirts, from denim to cotton everything. These are something that goes with every top or t-shirt wear.

If money was no object

If money was no object

Shoes and Sandals

 You are not completely dressed until and unless you don’t have a pair of branded shoes and sandals. Shoes always add a class to our outfit whereas sandals or rather I would say heels makes you look sexier than ever, every time you walk, you walk like a queen.These are something that is meant to be every girl’s choice. There are numerous varieties of shoes and sandals available in the market like sneakers, boots, lace sandals, brogues, pencil heels, wedges and much more. I would grab them all.

YouTube sensation Vidya Vox is giving us some major outfit goals

Everyone must have come across this startling YouTube sensation Vidya Vox who frames unique mashup covers of Bollywood and Hollywood tracks. As much as we love her mashups, we love her outfits. They are so appealing, that we often find our mouths ajar just gazing at her #OOTD’s. Like her mashups, she has got a true clasp on fashion as well. She knows how to blend western and Indian elements altogether and understands the perfect amount of  desi charm she needs in her outfits to match up to her mashup themes. Here are some of her OOTD’s that make her our new favourite on the fashion scene and honestly, we can’t wait to try ’em all.

1. Miss Elegant drenched in bohemian accessories

Adding an unexpected, bohemian touch to a sophisticated attire. How divergent yet amazing is that?

2. We heart the beautiful coalition of ‘Juttis’ & ‘Shorts’

We’ve all seen and paired our shorts with sneakers and sandals but how about juttis and payals? 10 points to miss Vox for that! 😉

Vidya Vox-2

 

3. Jazzing up a casual look with printed boots

Keeping aside our all time favourite white kicks, we are loving those printed tan boots. What about you?

4.Not a rigid follower of ‘Fashion Rules’

A complete head turner look. Who says your kurti has to go with a Patiala or leggings? Miss Vox is making her own fashion statement with an embellished kurta paired up with heels & golden accessories.

Vidya Vox-4

 

5. Sometimes it’s okay to give up the glamour

Going easy breezy with tan boots and a comfy sweater dress is the best thing that we all can do.

Vidya Vox-5

 

6. Adding a little bit of ‘Bappi Lehri’ swag

How about pairing up golden jewellery with sneakers and rugged jeans? We’re loving how she kept the balance and did not overdo it because we all know what it would look like otherwise…do we need to even say more? 😛

Vidya Vox-6

 

7. Bringing some ‘Indo-chic’ vibes

We guess she has done some PhD in styling Indian wear in the most effortless ways. Don’t you think so?

Vidya Vox-7

 

8. ‘Life isn’t perfect but your hair can be’. Well, YESS!
