Last week, we gave you fun, flirty sun dress looks to celebrate the season with. In part two of the series, Rhea Dhanbhoora helps you out with some great midi and maxi combinations to look super stylish in this summer
Dress it up
With a maxi like this (Kraftly, Rs 1,549) you don’t want anything else to take centre stage. Ditch the accessories and pair it with a pair of slippers with a slight heel (Aprajita Toor, Rs 3,680) to add a slight ethnic touch to the look.
Pair a bright, orange maxi (Shakumbhari, Rs 1,695) with this printed party clutch (Craftsvilla.com, Rs 799) and nude wedges (InToto.in, Rs 1,899) for an evening look. Accessorise with a printed scarf (Shingora, Rs 3,995) for a more elegant look.
There’s nothing like a maxi dress (Amy Billimoria, Rs 15,750) in pristine white, but if you want to add a hint of colour and cover up your shoulders to avoid sunburn outdoors, pair it with a funky tie-die top (Diya Mehta Clothing, Rs 2,850) for a different look. A pop of colour on your feet (InToto.in, Rs 2,499) will complete the look.
Go matchy-matchy in this pretty pink maxi with a printed bodice (Limerick by Abirr and Nanki, Rs 7,000 onwards) for a casual evening date. Ditch the heels for a pair of sandals (Life at Shoppers Stop, Rs 1,499) and an elegant leather bag (Pratinava, Rs 2,500).
Even a simple black maxi can be made bright and summery if you pair this strapless, belted style (Splash, Rs 3,299) with a pair of yellow sandals (Metro Shoes, Rs 1,999 onwards) and this scarf (Shingora, Rs 3,995). Carry a black and coral bag (Voonik.com, Rs 2,950) for a sophisticated touch.
If you want to take printed dresses to the next level, pick this one (Pasha by Dia Ajmera, Rs 2,200) and pair it with a laser print coral clutch (Max, Rs 899) and funky beaded wedges (Metro Shoes, Rs 1,999 onwards).
A pretty printed dress (Chique, Rs 3,800 onwards) is perfect for the summer, especially when you pair it with subtle wedges (InToto.in, Rs 1,999) and a simple raspberry sling (Chumbak, Rs 695).
Love the look
Light, airy and perfect for the summer, this maxi (Pepe Jeans, Rs 2,799) is accentuated by this wooden box clutch (Exclusively.com, Rs 6,629) and stylish black and silver wedges (Woods, Rs 6,995).
For a brunch date, pick an easy, casual style like this pretty blue dress (Shakumbhari, Rs 1,895). Pair it with wedges in a slightly darker hue (Woods, Rs 6,995) and a handpainted wallet (Hidesign, Rs 2,495 onwards).
If you’re spending summer on a beach, this black and white ikat print maxi (Saiesta, Rs 2,499) is perfect. Add pops of colour with pretty flip flops (Chumbak, Rs 595) and an olive tote (Max, Rs 999).
