After a year of staying at home, we are finally able to look at a slightly brighter future where things might get sooner or later. People have started traveling around and preparing themselves to get back to their offices, with necessary precautions of course. Fortunately or unfortunately, this is coming at the time of the biggest season of the year – the Summer.
We definitely know what you did last summer, sitting at home trying to get used to the new normal but this summer, we thought we’ll help you make it a little more interesting by talking about trends to look out for in the little time that you do happen to step out. Now a lot of these have also been inspired by the Spring/Summer Fashion Weeks of 2021. So get ready to look Vogue this season!
Scarves have been hugely inspired from the 50s and 60s when they were the most trending accessory back then. Although it’s debut in Ancient Egypt started with it being used to protect the hair, it eventually went on to become an addition to our daily outfit by making us look quirky or classy without overdoing it. Wear it is a chic necktie, a headband or the uber cool scarf top for the ultimate summer look.
2) Pastel Tones
With Instagram aesthetics being the ultimate fashion judgement for today’s generation, an ongoing trend that would be just right for the summer are pastel tones. These pleasant colours look so elegant on any kind of skin tone, making them a must-have in everybody’s wardrobe. Be it a mint green top, a light mustard skirt or even a lavender blazer, you are sure to ace the chic look with these pastel clothes.
3) Cargo Pants
These heavy pants that are often shunned for their numerous pockets are one of the most comfortable fashion statements you can make this year. With variations in denims, cotton and sweatpants, cargo pants should be your ideal go-to bottom wear this summer for their convenience and style quotient.
4) Business Casuals
This new normal is slowly going back to the previous normal and there is a huge confusion amongst the office going crowd as to how to not work with your pyjamas on. But the fashion world has a solution with a new range of business casuals that are so comfortable that you’d actually be willing to get off your pyjamas for them. With loose trousers, untucked everything, unruly tees back in trend, pair a casual tee with a blazer or a cotton shirt with a high waist skirt or trousers and you are ready to ace your comfortable professional look without feeling guilty about it.
5) Bare Back

Now we aren’t bringing back any trend, we are just saying some trends never die and boy are we glad!
8) Something Blue
In a lot of wedding customs in the christian community, it is considered lucky for the bride to wear something blue on her wedding day. Even the ancestors knew that no other colour can bring out that pop and make one stand out like the Majestic blue! Equal parts bold and beautiful, a bright blue accessory can enhance your summer outfit and bring out the zing in you. This stands all the more true if you decide to pick an outfit in monochrome or shades of grey.
