Summer- that time of the year when people kick off their boots and get rid of the full-sleeved furry dresses. Summer is the time to let go. This transition of fashion can be really exciting and at times challenging for those who love the dark, thick clothes. Light colors are termed as summery colors-since this is the time of more sunshine and heat, these lighter shades effectively are a reflection of the season. Lighter shades of pink, yellow blue or lemon makes it much easier to get that airy freshness, since these lighter hues can reflect more and absorb lesser heat than the dark colors such as black or brown. The reason being, contrasting to sound, light can travel across color spectrum. However, its speed decreases through darker colors such as black and brown, keeping the heat nearer to our body for a longer period of time. Thus black is considered to be the “sweat-fest” whereas white, is best for summer.
Yet, wearing brighter colors on those scorching summery days, have also become a trend. Our clothes are a reflection of our moods; they make us feel good, and designers are very much aware of this. A brighter color of daffodil yellow or coral or violets that tend to blend into ultra-light and pale stone colors will give a monochromatic yet a sophisticated look. Or, if you want to be contemporary, just enhance the bold tones with lower and lighter shades of the pale ones.
Thus, with gradual changes in the summer fashion, the stronger and bolder colors these days are not entirely the area of expertise of the trend setters-but are for everyone. Opting for colorful summer clothing in those sweaty blistering days not only uplifts the mood, but also makes you stand out in the crowd. A floral print skirt of shades of green and pink in a light yellow background, topped with a white airy sleeveless shirt, can be your style statement for the summer. Light, airy bright colored summer dresses add intrigue to summer outfits when they are contrasted with neutral colors.
Summer is a time of colors. Thus wear brights, florals, prints all you want. This is that time of the year when people hate sitting at home. Vacations, trips or holidays, whatever the reason be, this is that ideal time when people travel around the world. Wearing the perfect dress on those special moments can not only make you look pretty, but will also give you an inner peace.
We love standing out from the common, thus a bright color, is a deviation from those lighter summer hues. As the color of the trees turn to green from barren, let your attire be a reflection of those natural colors that you have embraced with the onset of the season. Once you complete planning out your summer wardrobe and your future vacation, you can sit down, pamper yourself and be ready for all the enjoyment ahead of you.
