Go Indigo

Summer is a tricky season – for some, it is the ideal time to hang out and have fun whereas for others dressing up in the heat results in summer blues. In a tropical country like India we cannot imagine surviving without cotton. In 2017, indigo prints are the in thing. It is an ancient Japanese dyeing technique that uses indigo dyes to create prints and patterns on a cloth by tying, twisting, folding, and binding it in unique ways.

If you are not too fond of the color indigo then you can go for indigo scarves or dupattas. Traditional indigo prints have its own charm and when paired with a plain kurta and chunky silver jhumkas, it works wonders. Take a cue from this picture :

If you prefer a more modern look, indigo printed chiffon scarves are a must buy. It can be paired with almost anything from a solid colour tank top to a plain tee. Go bold by adorning a bandana in this print pairing it with cool shades and be summer ready.

Indigo print crop tops look uber cool with denim and well fitted white trousers. Try print on prints by combining a indigo printed top with a fuschia on pink printed long skirt or a rust and red one. To stand out try lemon yellow pompom skirt with your shaded indigo top. White, black, pink, rust, red, yellow, any shade of blue and green look great with indigo.

Chiffon maxi dresses in indigo and shibhori prints have rocked on the ramp this season and are a must buy for its breezy look. Try short cotton dresses for a fun party and hassle free dressing. Accessorize with silver loops or neat danglers and sunglasses for the perfect look.

Kurtis are a gift from heaven for all Indian women. Indigo printed kurtis instantly add a boho charm to your look. There is a wide variety to choose from. Traditional indigo print looks amazing on anarkalis. Straight long kurtas in indigo and white are best for daily wear. If going full indigo is not your thing then you can try mix and match kurtis too. Pair these with leggings, palazzos, jeans or trousers according to the cut.

For a fresh look try indigo palazzos and long skirts. Experiment with either simple clean indigo printed ones or with patches and borders. To ace the look, team it with indigo scarf.

I believe nothing looks more elegant than a sari. Indigo or shibhori printed chiffons, chanderi silk and even cotton saris look beautiful and are best for the scorching heat. Pair it with white or black blouse if you want a safe look.

If you want a twist go for contrast colours in your choice of the blouse. For an edge team it with a well fitted funky crop top.

Trendy shoes and bags have also become popular. These have a charm that accentuates any Indian attire or simple daily wears.

Indigo prints in home decor give a warm boho chic vibe. From bed sheets to curtains to lamp shades – you will be spoilt for choice.

So this summer let the indigo insanity kick in!
