Summer is here! The world smells of roses. The sunshine is as bright as the powdered gold spread all over the place. The birds are chirping as loud as they can. It is one of those March days where the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold everywhere, but, in Ahmedabad’s case, the winds are as hot as the sun.


It is time to stuff those woollen clothes in your wardrobe and make some space for the lovely delicate summer separates you have been waiting for.

Here are some of the styles that you could opt for this season along with the names of brands & stores from where you could find your piece of elegance.

1) Kurta

Cotton absorbs the sweat from your body and allows it to evaporate into the air. This makes it the perfect fabric for summer because it keeps you cool. Avoid synthetic fabrics as much as possible because most synthetic fabrics do not breathe. So when you sweat, the sweat doesn’t dry off like it should.

We recommend grabbing a cotton or a khadi kurta along with an ankle length legging. You can also opt for a Pakistani pants to go with the kurta. Colours like white, yellow, beige and other light hades can keep you cool. You could also pick up a dhoti pant to pair it up with your kurta.

You can either take sets or mix and match according to your style. Ray-ethnic, Keri, Khadi Bhandar are the places where you could find these.

2) Saree

Florals are a summertime staple, and with options ranging from super subtle to bright and bold, they’re easy to carry. Try opting for a solid coloured sleeveless crop top which has been a trend this year. Or you could also opt for a linen saree by pairing it up with a cold shouldered top and statement jewellery.

You can find a huge variety of sarees either in Kalpana Saree store or in Sanskruti.

3) Angarkha Top
