Here’s a list of must haves for the fashion conscious this summer:

Skirts

Long, short or knee high, all lengths of skirts are in this season. Be it as party wear, casuals to formals, this is one garment that can never go out of fashion. However, make sure you keep away from balloon and long pencil skirts for they are so out of line this year. Stick with pencil style for knee length and A-line to sport that long, flowing style.

Hot pants

Summers are finally here and shorts are the best way to not only beat the heat but also flaunt your sassy legs. Go out and sport this comfort gear with stylish tops. But make sure not to do too much of skin show. Avoid halter and shoulder-less tops while wearing these hot pants or else you’ll be inviting unneeded attention.

Halter necks and tank tops

They are by far the best aspect about this season. Available almost at all shopping spots, halter necks and tank tops add the much-needed glamour to summers. What’s even better is that they can be paired with almost anything. From a pair of skinny jeans to mini skirts, these tops can make anyone look stylish.

Tunics and fad dresses

Now here’s one style gear you must have in plenty this season. From casuals to party wear, dresses are the top priority for fashionistas this summer. Not only are they easy to carry, tunics are classy and chic. What’s more is that one need not spend a fortune to grab one of these, as several brands are now offering them at reasonable prices. And if you aren’t one of those brand junkies, you have a whole lot options open by way of flea markets.

Accessories

The best way to add glitz to any outfit is to accessorize it well. Be it a pair of boring khakis or a plain white top, any outfit can be made to look exclusive by donning some splashy accessories. Stoned necklaces, bracelets, long or stud earrings and chic clutches are a must for making any outfit classy. But don’t go overboard and sport all your jewels at a time. Pick and choose for that diva look. Elegance is the key word this summer.

For Men:

Check shorts and shirts

This is one fashion fad that’s hot for the guys this summer. Check shorts and shirts are what the metro-sexual men in the city are drooling over. Available in varied shades and colours, check shirts serve a dual purpose: they can be worn for both causal and formal purposes.

Narrow jeans

It’s not just the girls who are flaunting their long legs in skinny jeans; men too are fast catching up. Wearing jeans with narrow bottoms is the latest fad and after seeing all the madness over baggy jeans, we are much too pleased to welcome this change.

Slogan to figure T-shirts

They have been a rage for quiet some time now and going by the popularity of slogan and cartoon print T-shirts, we doubt they are going to go out of fashion any time soon. Right from collage teens to working professionals, such T-shirts have become a must-have in men wardrobes.

Floaters and slip on

If you are not the typical professional who has a job where the dress code is the essence of office fashion, then floaters and slip-ons are some of the cool summer options for you. Available in almost all brands and colours, such footwear is the most economical way to stay cool this summer.

Colours this season

Go for bright cheerful colours but make sure you don’t end up looking like a lamp. Keep it subtle by pairing up a bright colour top with something neutral at the bottom or vice versa. White, orange, yellow, blood red and neon green are a few colours you must have in your wardrobe this season.

Patterns

Checks are a pattern that is in for men and women this season. From bright to neutral colours, here is one pattern that will not go out of fashion for long. Half to mega sleeves, these shirts are not only stylish but also comfortable, considering they look best in cotton fabric.
