Time to pack away your woollens, take out the cool clothing and buy new wears.

It's only February, but the sun is out and shining bright. Spring is in full blossom. Soon it will be summer. Time to pack away your woollens, take out the cool clothing and buy new wears.

As the weather changes, so as the requirement. Fashion also contributes something new to the ever changing seasonal requisites. It creates an urge to buy new clothes for those who want to add to their current stock. Shop and dress to stay cool and keep discomforts of hot weather at bay.

Keep few small, but important things in mind while shopping for the coming summer season:

Give some thought to what exactly you want to buy and from where.

Don’t go cheap on clothes. Their high price is often worth paying for.

Opt for clothes that have high heat conductivity.

Pick the fabric with long, wide and smooth fibres to allow air to pass through ease.

Buy cotton under shirts to keep you cool.

Wear light colours like white, ivory, lemon, baby pink, and sky blue if you are facing a problem to mask your sweatiness.

Summer is all about playing with an array of colours. Replace the dark palette of winter by a swarm of different pastel and fuchsia shades offered by the season. These colours will add a touch of flair in your closet.

It’s also the season of vivid prints. All sorts of floral, leaf patterns, paisley, polka dots, geometric designs, modern as well as ethnic prints look cool provided you choose the right fabric and colour that matches your skin colour.
