Summer is that one time of year that the population begins to tango to their own natural and relaxing beat of life with numerous family events, outings with friends, and extravagant vacations. But what individuals find so appealing about those scorching hot months is not the many social events, but the very effortless and jovial manner in which life itself is lived. Summer is that one time of year that one can live, not just exist.
The sunny season brings with it impulsive decisions which lead to momentous moments that beg for equally ostentatious yet ethereal apparel.
This ensemble evokes the delicate etiquette that each vacationer so desperately desires. One word is needed to describe this ensemble. Breezy. From head to toe, each piece is loosely fitted and still shows plenty of skin for the summer’s strong rays. This airy shirt is the most impeccable choice for my body because although it is extremely loose, it is extremely sheer so that my small frame is still seen. These white crochet shorts embody the summer spirit of “casualness” with its soft and interesting texture. The patterned platforms add length to my already long legs and add a slight pop of color this other wise black and white piece. Beachy accessories complete the look with sheen and sea shells. This ensemble includes a mix of texture, pattern, and color, which are three aspects that are essential to a breathtaking outfit.

A young child bounces her way to the alter in her baby blue frock leaving a trail of youth behind, only to come back as a an efflorescent damsel.
As the blue buds bloom in the summer heat so does style with shorter hemlines and open shoulders. This ensemble is formally known to me as the “god-mother” outfit simply because this classic look was created for my dear god-child’s baptism. The entire piece reminds me of my youthful days when my mother used to dress me in the most impeccable frocks for church every Sunday. However this particular ensemble is the “big-girl” version of all those poufy dresses with the abridged length, classic pattern, and open shoulders.
The strapless dress compliments my body perfectly because it embraces my waist, to create an immaculate silhouette. The shorter hemline exposes my most prized possession, my long legs, without being too ostentatious. The simple accessories create the classic aura that is emanated from this ensemble because each piece is undeniably sophisticated. Finally the patterned platforms add a splash of my extravagant personality because the amalgamation of the pattern of the dress and shoes create a subtly opulent look.
Culture speaks to the soul to my bring out hues of black and silver, reflecting itself as a mirage on my body.
My Indian origins have brought me to the place in which I am now, I am inspired by the indulgent colors and patters and I find myself lost in the cultural story of Indian style. It is truly difficult for me to create a unique ensemble with a sari because it has to be worn in a specific way, so I cannot use my usual “avant-garde” ways. However I do adore this piece because the sari itself is exquisite in my eyes, the color combination is simply impeccable. The black foreground with silver accents make this outfit stand out, and the fact that it is very sheer makes it seem like a more youthful sari. Finally to make this ensemble truly mine I added only silver accessories to make this piece unforgettable.

Effulgent azure rays of sunlight penetrate my body, creating a floral amalgam of spring time rapture.
A warm ardor of serenity envelopes my body in binding flowers of the sun, to carry it to the heat that this season brings. This ensemble evolves around the vivid hues of blue and deep vivacious prints of spring, that create a peaceful and serene vibe. The floral denim shirt fits my slim body impeccably to compliment each and every curve to create a feminine silhouette. The bandeau under the slightly unbuttoned shirt creates the alluring ambiance that I crave in all of my outfits, and also makes this piece more dainty because of its diaphanous lace. The bright cobalt blue shorts is the “eye-catcher” of the outfit, the color is so bold and avant-garde that it adds the perfect amount of edginess to the ensemble.
