Not ready to let the winters go already? Can't seem to let go of the cozy checks and plaids you've been sporting all fall? We don't particularly enjoy being the bearers of sad news but it's time for some serious summer wardrobe upgrade and we have just the thing you need.
Nothing spells summer styles like soft fabrics and flowy silhouettes. But if you still want keep the winter-y vibe thriving then read along to find out exactly how you can do so.
If the International Fashion Weeks are any testament, checks and plaid are here to stay (check out trend reports from London and Paris.) Let us explore ways to make this trend to get working for us.
Dress up to Show up - The simplest way to don this trend is to pick a simple silhouette (for instance the the loose sheath dress by Urvashi Kaur) and flounce away looking spiffy AF. For more relaxed styles you could opt for one-piece outfits with an attached jacket by Soup by Sougat or the Scottish kilt doppelganger dress by Abhishekh Sharma
Who run the world? - Girls (who wear pants)! We love us some fancy pants and checks/plaids is the chicest way to get it right. Be it the checkered shirt pant suit by Two Point Two, or the baggy pants by Deme by Gabriella or the German checkered breeches by Munkee See Munkee Doo, we have to admit these pants are jazzy yet subtle and can get your style quotient peaking in no time.
Layer it Up - For the days when you cannot decide weather the climate Gods are confused or just having a practical joke at your expense, layering is sure to bring some cool summer vibes to your look while keeping you cozy in case it gets nippy. Don't you just love the peplum jacket and checkered dress combination by Payal Pratap or the more vibrant option with a long cardigan style jacket by Saman Nathwani or the super summer-y look by Eka. Grab your pick and shoo the woes away.
Drape diaries - This humble Indian outfit could not get any more versatile. Overall checks and plaids like Padmaja and Anavila or checkered pleats like Latha Puttana, you can bestow trendiness with utmost ease into this garment. Add on a piece of statement jewelry or a swanky bag and you are good to go.
Not just for the Girls - Men don't have to sit this one out because you can totally spruce up your style with this trend. A nouveau gingham plaid with strategic embroidery Kurta by Pranay Baidya for the ethnic event or a checkered suit by SS Homme - perfect for the summer outdoors or the uber voguish shirt and pant set by Son of a Noble Snob - pick your choose and get ready to groove.
