Ethnic with a twist: An anarkali is the ideal style for an ethnic piece that is also stylish, but you also want to wear a cooler fabric for the summer. A cotton anarkali is the perfect solution to beat the heat in style. Choose cooler colours or neutral colored styles and elevate your outfit with brightly colored jhumkas.

Flower Power: This summer season, embrace the floral print to reign in the festivities. Stock up on kanjeevaram and georgette sarees in bright summery pastels such as pale yellow or sky blue and pick a blouse in a basic color. To amp up your saree, you can even pick a saree with a lace border or light shimmer. Pair it with nude pointy-toed heels and a neutral colored clutch to complete the look.

Jazz up your Palazzos: Leggings and churidars can take a break. You can wear your kurtas over palazzos this summer. Experiment with patterns, polka dots and stripes instead of donning plain bottom wear and choose a plain colored kurta instead. Pair this with tassel earrings for an Indo-western look.

Go Chunky: The delicate appeal of a woman wearing an oversized ring or a multi-layered necklace has undergone a revival this season. Instead of dainty pieces being layered, chunky jewelry will be the stacking piece of choice. Make a bold statement with your jewelry this season while opting for gold in a true celebration of Ugadi.
