Mawra Hocane And Alia Bhatt Agree On This Summer Trend

Here’s a wardrobe item you need in your closet now!

By Mahvish Ahmed

Now that the wraps, kaftans, and dress-over-pants are thing of the past, we suggest you openly and lovingly welcome the trendiest sartorial item on the block: the summer jacket! While most of us aim to keep our clothes to a bare minimum, designers and fashionistas are directing us otherwise. The easy breezy summer jackets in summery fabrics with long, airy silhouettes have quickly risen to become the next big thing in the world of desi fashion so why not embrace them?

Scroll down and get some knowledge on how you can layer up fashionably to look cool without looking odd and feeling hot.

Classic White Never Goes Wrong

Kriti Sanon, in Chola the Label, gives us some major style goals in this deconstructed white jacket with fun lapels.  Worn with a casual white tee, distressed jeans, and white kicks, this is a perfect look for a casual day around the city. Don’t forget to wear a pair of fun reflectors to let everyone know who the boss is!

Classic Black Looks Equally Good

Learn how to take the trend forward from Illeana D’Cruz, who dares to wear a jet black Topshop jacket in this heat. The black summer trench coat, paired with statement accessories, is indeed the perfect choice for a night out.

Keep It Airy

For an evening out, take cue from Mawra Hocane. Her delicate floral print jacket by Muse Luxe, teamed up with a sleeveless top, frayed skinnies and pointed stilettos looks picture perfect. If you want to up your style game, throw in a bright lip colour!

Match It With Your Pants

Athiya Shetty, in Doodlage, shows us how a chic striped summer jacket worn with a pair of matching cropped culottes can go a long way in the sartorial race.

Keep It Solid

When in doubt, wear a red silk solid colored jacket just like Aditi Rao Hydari in Agami. You can pair it with high waist boot cut pants and an understated top and throw in some Afghan earrings. This outfit is perfect for your next book club meeting or a night at the cinema.

Sheer It Out

This one, by Masaba Gupta, is probably the summer-est of all summer coats. Add some drama to your evening look with a sheer organza jacket and pair it with flared denim bottoms and a bow tie crop top. Those embroidered stars on the jacket are super cute and the scalloped edges are bang on trend!

Monochrome For The Win

Check out Shetty’s drool worthy jacket (by Ragini Ahuja) with animal artwork and stripe appliqué! Worn with a denim crop top and pleated pants set, this ensemble is summer fashion done absolutely right.

Dare To Go Flare-y

Hydari channels her love for bohemian chic with this lovely Myoho batik jacket. She teams it with a white jumpsuit and ethnic accessories and khussas.  This look is for you, if your heart beats for all things fusion.

Go Crazy With Print

Fret not print lovers, because the Zari Faisal Studio has got just the perfect summer coat for you! But remember to keep the rest of the look minimal with this snazzy jacket.

Check Mate

To wrap up the lesson, Rehmat Ajmal shows how being trendy doesn’t call for going overboard. For street-style pros, a super casual checked summer jacket paired with everyday jeans, a carry-all bag, and hair pulled back in a bun is the way to go.

Go Abstract

This colorful abstract print by Studio S and the rough edges make this jacket a must-have piece. Seher Tareen suggests you stick to a basic white/beige jump suit under this one and we agree with her wholeheartedly.
