Indian Attire Styles During the Summer Season

Summers in India tend to get quite hot with temperatures going as high as 115 F in some places. With the attendant high humidity that characterizes coastal regions, the heat can make one wish he was elsewhere or had more comfort.

Although encumbered by this uncomfortable weather in summer, India continues to remain a top destination for tourists and explorers alike. This is likely due to its beautiful islands, tall peaks and deep forests, that attracts so many people. In short, India never has a scarcity of people. 

The implication of this temperature however is that you may not be able to wear traditional silk, sarees or satin. So what then can you wear during the summer? We share some ideas below;

1. Go White

Black colour absorbs heat. As such black outfits, and by extension dark ones, are a no-no in the Indian summer. In its place, white materials will cause heat rays to bounce off keeping the heat off you and helping you to stay cool. Also, white helps you to keep calm and stay collected. This is very useful as people tend to be on the edge as a result of irritation due to heat during the summer.

2. Keep it minimal

Indian summers are a good time to try on outfits with shorter hemlines. You can go don on sleeveless yet stylish outfits casually during the day and max them up further for an evening outing. Floral prints and pastels, Kitschy prints, and bright coloured outfits also add to the summer feeling and are perfect with the season. Maxi dresses are also highly rated for the beach and resort vibes which they give off.

You can also choose chic tops in cotton or linen. To project a casual/cool demeanour during this season. When shopping, try to pick out a variety of summer-ready Indian outfits; sleeveless, spaghetti’s, strapless, tubes or off-shoulder tops, for a cool and casual demeanour. 

When you wear this with shorts, skirts and trousers (perhaps darker bottom colors so it readily blends), you’d be ready to slay throughout summer. You can choose to pair your cotton tunics with pants or leggings; or choose to simply use a belt.

 3. Let cotton lead

Regardless of the time of day, no fabric is quite as convenient as cotton and you can pick from a wide range of cotton fabrics including the designer salwar kameez, organic tunics and dresses all of which make for very easy wear during summer. This is because these materials enable air to pass through easily keeping the skin aerated and the body cool. What’s more? Cotton fabric is considered eco-friendly so you can choose a cotton fabric and be proud of your fashion choices.

 4. The Salwar Kameez Way

Salwaar kameez provides a great option for anyone who wants to stay stylish for Indian events in the summer. Compared to Anarkali suits and lehenga choli, the salwar kameez is simplistic but it will help you battle the hot summer without being excessive.

 5. Why not Khadi?

Time was when this handmade fabric was very popular in India. It was Gandhi’s favourite and that of many Indians too but as more Indians embraced western wear, it was relegated to the background. Recently, however, the fabric is making a grand comeback because I can keep you cool during summer.

6. Line it up

Although linen has several textures and colours, it generally resembles netted cloth and allows the circulation of air freely. It also absorbs moisture.

7. Skirts and shorts

Your summer wardrobe is not complete if it doesn’t include shorts and skirts, both of which are great outfits for the summer.  When you smartly mix-match your skirts and shorts with your T-shirts of different colors, people think they are all unique outfits (Genius!).  

Go further by adding on a cute summer hat to the mix. Do this, and  you’d be making a summer-ready style statement!

 

Summarily,

Indeed, summer in India can get extremely hot and humid. However, getting it right with your dressing can save you a lot of trouble. Dressing for summer means: letting go of your jeans for loose or wider bottom cotton trousers; avoiding jackets, thick and dark materials; and doing away with slacks and synthetic tights. 

Whichever way, it will still be a worthwhile decision with enough clothes to fill in the gap.

Cindy Karen Leggings Review


As a mom, I love to have clothes that are comfortable, yet fashionable. Even though leggings and yoga pants have been popular for several years, I honestly never got in to wearing them until after my son was born. (Before that, I think I saw them as something just for kids and teens.)  After my son was born, I changed my mind; for one thing, I realized a lot of successful people I look up to on blogs, Instagram, etc were wearing them.  And secondly, after losing my pregnancy weight, I think I actually realized how truly skinny I am and that leggings and yoga pants actually look good on. (This is something my husband has been trying to convince me of for years.)

Today I am reviewing some faux leather leggings from Cindy Karen.  The brand has fabulous tops, pants, jackets, and dresses for today’s business woman.  If you’re in sales and need the perfect outfit for your business luncheon or a blogger looking for something nice to wear to your next blogger conference, this is a great brand to consider!

Marika Athletic Wear Review

Disclosure: I received products samples to facilitate this review. Post contains affiliate links. The opinions are my own.

When it comes to gift giving I am simple. I love to get people what they really want. In my case, all I really wanted for Mother’s Day was a few prints of my son’s latest pictures. Other than that, I enjoy getting things I love but don’t by often for myself. Clothes are a great example. I get so excited when my husband walks in with a shirt or pants for me. As a mom, I am home every day with my son. We have church on Sundays and once or twice a week we may go out shopping or something, but for the most part I don’t have to get dressed up. At home I like to be comfortable yet cute, and for me that means yoga pants with a tank top or tee.

I was very excited recently when I received a package from Marika. They have very stylish athletic and fitness wear. I got a pair if yoga pants. These are black and feature a cute mesh pattern down the legs, and they are a great fit! [Read more…]

Valentine Gifts for HIM: Volt, Scholars & Warriors

Disclosure: I received product samples to facilitate this review. The opinions are my own.

I’m always excited when I get the chance to review products, and when my husband can be a part of the review that’s even better!  When I heard about Volt, I thought their products would be a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for my hubby.  They sent me an amazing hoodie!  I like neutral colors that go with everything, so the grey color was perfect.  Immediately upon examining the garment, I was impressed with the look and style of it.  The quality is great.  The fabric is very thick, and it is very nicely lined to be both comfortable and warm.

 

But Volt isn’t just any clothing company.  My husband’s hoodie also came with a battery pack.  Yes, that’s right, a battery pack.  It charges just like your cell phone and then hooks in to the hoodie.  With the battery connected, this hoodie warms up just like an electric blanket!  My husband is a DIYer who does a lot of work outdoors, so this is perfect for him!

Our weather turned off cold again last week, so he’s gotten to wear it a few times, and he loves it.

I also received a pair of boxers from Warriors & Scholars.  They specialize in clothing for all men, of all walks of life, from white collar to blue collar.  Whether you are looking for something to where to the office, the gym, or at home with the wife and kids, Warriors & Scholars has something for everyone!

Their boxes come in a variety of fun colors and patterns.  The fabric is very smooth and soft to the touch, and my husband said they fit very comfortably.

Hope you’ll check out these fun Valentine’s Day gift selections for HIM!

A Valentine Gift for Her from Ellie Activewear

Disclosure: I received free products to facilitate this post.  The opinions are my own.

When it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts a lot of girls grow tired of the traditional candy and flowers.  I personally love jewelry, but sometimes I long for something a little more practical.  If you are trying to think outside the box for Valentine’s Day (or any other occasion) consider a subscription to Ellie.  Ellie is an active wear subscription plan.  It costs $39.95 a month, and they send you a three piece outfit with a fun accessory.

Each month the company has exclusive collections to send out.  I’m really excited today to take you inside one of their boxes! [Read more…]
