Summer times are the best time to explore floral and geometrical prints. Summers are the perfect time to play with colours too. “Pastels and pop colours have always been something that I’ve loved working with. Blending and experimenting with various colour combinations and creating something fun with a mix of fun colours is what most of my summers have been as a designer, says Shloka Sudhakar.”

Apart from colours there are so many other factors that go into the summer fashion trends. The fabric, the embroidery, the styles, the embellishments and more. Designer Shloka Sudhakar adds, “Prints have always been a favourite during summer. Pastel floral and geometrical prints have always been a classic but now we have fun animal prints, fruits and vehicles prints that are gaining popularity”. Summers are no more limited to maxis or floral skirts, the summer wear has evolved to fun printed shirt dresses, suits and formal blazer dresses as well.

Shloka who is an Indian wear designer mostly known for her Indo-Western and bridal clothing talks about how her colourful applique worked lehengas are something to look out for this summer if it’s a fusion themed evening out. These lehengas are light weight and picturesque. Infact these can even be worn by brides. Every bride can have her picture-perfect images captured outdoors. These lehengas have the perfect blend of colours paired with colourful thread work embroidery and embellishments. Men’s wear comprises pop colour blocking and printed bandi for a perfect mehendi, haldi or any pre wedding event. This season’s collections are elegant and yet the right amount of colours to make heads turn!

“The applique colourful worked lehenga is our label’s statement piece this summer and has been worn by Bollywood and South Indian actors and celebrities in many colours. This outfit is perfect for brides and bridesmaids for destination weddings and pre-wedding events as they are super light-weight and definitely makes it easier to beat the summer blues and yet ensures you’re dressed for the occasion.” So, stay cool for the summer!
