Summer Style Guide: How to Wear Cottons

Summer Style Guide: How to Wear Cottons

[vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=””][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]It’s an awesome Friday with Be For Beauty as I present to you the last look curated for this month, from our Summer Style Guide series (a part of our Summer Cool special).

This look is all about being comfortable, colourful in, yup, you guessed it, COTTONS!

Comfort:

There is nothing better than feeling comfortable and stylish in your skin, especially this time of the year. I love my skinny jeans and bodycon dresses but it’s good to take a break from them at least once or twice in a week. If you’re working for a media house like I did, you can sport these printed cuff trousers from Miss Bennett London, Jabong.com without thinking twice but if you work in a corporate environment, I suggest you try Friday-Sunday. The best part is the fitting: it’s tapers as it goes along and has an elastic waist, making it as comfy as feel in a pair of PJs.

Colour:

A burst of colour is not just cheerful for you but also to those around you. I love orange, and one of the reasons I chose this <strong>double layered spaghetti top from Miss Bennett London, Jabong.com </strong>is also because it’s ALMOST a crop top. Because of the tailoring and the fact that it is slightly longer than an average crop top, it makes sure you’re on-trend. If you want to show off your awesome belly in this top, pair it with a skirt/trousers are mid-waist, and you’re done![/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1988″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]

Cotton:

You think buying cotton would be easy but it’s really not! If you ACTUALLY go to the mall to do your shopping, I advise this (and with a lot of pain), that you either go to brands you trust for their fabrics or just try on the ensemble you’re investing in. For the rest of us who shop online, read the description of the fabric that is usually below the picture of an item BEFORE you pay for it. The magic words are cotton and linen. Some polyblends are good-to-go, but try to avoid polyester especially if the weather is very humid.

Accessorizing:

Since this look for me was all about comfort, and it’s really hot in Delhi, I chose to use one of my favourite gold neckpieces that I recently bought from Forever 21. It’s really pocket friendly and is great for those of us who like minimal, dainty jewellery. If you want to go a bit tribal or bohemian, I think it would look really good with this look. The pink-gold watch is from Fossil, I think you can find this in most stores.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1993″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]

The Glam Factor:

You can go mix and matching, or pair up nuetrals. The ones I wore are a pair of embellished, reptile printed mules from Dune London. I think they just add a dash of glam to this look, or any other outfit you come up with, and are superbly comfortable so I they get full marks from me.
