People! So how has the week treated you so far? I watched a Bollywood movie called TRAPPED last night and boy, it was nice. It is starting to get too hot in Bangalore, don’t you feel? Today’s blog is about a few key essentials for summer and how to nail them. We have to admit that we are all big time suckers for some timeless summer pieces like that of a shirt dress or a crop shirt. They basically never go out of trend and you can style them in multiple permutations! The best part is that they can be worn in different weathers with a few layerings done.
SHIRT/ CASUAL DRESS
First, let’s talk about the timeless SHIRTDRESS. The very versatile shirt dress is a must have key piece for the summer. Although it’s meant to be worn in a loose and not- fitted way, nowadays, we see fashionistas adorning it in various ways. Shirt dresses were also spotted in the latest runway trends. Designers have added their own touch of style to the shirt dress by adding details like giving it a new spin with cut out shoulders and cold shoulders. They basically never go out of trend and you can suit yourself in a shirt dress not only during the summers but also during the cold weather with a proper layering.
I wanted to try my HIGHLAND CHECKS SHIRT DRESS a little different this time and have worn it keeping in mind another current trend: ‘ DECONSTRUCTED OFF SHOULDER SHIRTS ‘ . Also, keeping it edgy with a high waist loose denim shorts such that the hemlines of the shirt dress are visible. Well, don’t we always like to spot the pockets of a pair of high waisted shorts?

Since it is loose and not- fitted, a shirt dress can be worn in ways so as to hide our EXTRA-CARBS as well! A few other ways to style a shirt dress given below:
CROP SHIRTS/ CROP TOPS
We know that since last year, the crop shirt trend is getting only bigger and better. The crop tops are a fashion staple now and can be seen in multitude ways and not only the ones like sports bra! Whether it be a formal event or a baseball game, a crop top/ shirt works wonders! Again, it can be well transitioned into a cold- weather garment with a right amount of layering.
I am wearing a LARGE- sized MIDNIGHT BLUE crop shirt so as to give it an extra roomy effect, again, as it is summer- time and have paired it with a pair of loose denim bermudas. For me summer is all about easy- breathable clothes and I am certainly going to wear this combination a lot this summer.

I couldn’t get hold of good- enough crop shirt street style pictures, but below are a few ways to rock a crop top:
Needless to say t-shirts are our second skin. Day in and day out we always find ourselves in a t- shirt. For summer, a t- shirt works wonders with almost anything and everything. A pair of shorts, a skirt, a pair of harem pants, denims, everything you see. And it can be worn to any occasion or venue.
I am wearing my TROOP LEADER T- shirt with a pair of loose denim dungarees. I love how this simple pair of dungarees add so much style quotient to the outfit. A bandana or a scarf is another key piece to add to your closet this summer.
I am not adding a styling tip for t-shirts ’cause I believe we are all masters in that!
