Thanks to the soaring temperature across the country, all one can think of is minimalist fashion. Are you guilty of propping your hair up in a bun, doing next to nothing make up, and donning basic, airy kurtas day in and day out? The monotony must be killing you, but here is a magic ingredient that can give your simple day time look a quick and easy uplift: metallic gold slip-ons!
