Summer silhouettesHere comes the summer with its blistering heat waves and gales of north-western thundershowers; be prepared for all weather conditions. It is compounded for those of us who have to endure the power outages in the sweltering heat of Dhaka city.
What should you wear? It must be the first thing you try to address every morning. Light but not transparent, easy but not bohemian, sombre but not too dark, and finally loose but not too baggy as you need to appear professional wherever you are going.
I think to get inspired for a summer ensemble we need to be stimulated by our environment that is abundant in foliage, bright luscious fruits and white fragrant flowers. The earth is rejuvenated with spurs of excitement that arouse all our senses. You are very sensitive to the moist, heavy, humid air and certain shades of colour allure us during our summer moments.
This year nudes, neutrals and pastels could be good colours to watch out for. Always try to accent with summer bright. In style, modern women are looking for future classics. You can try basic shapes in luxurious styles but with today's economics your styles are worthwhile only if they can withstand seasons. The conflict and polarity of trends versus classics are matters of personal choice. Styles should be modernised to suit our changing times where form and function work together. Here are some styles that promise to have a lasting supremacy.
