The summer season rips the lid off the Pandora’s Box of trends. Greys and blacks give way to vibgyor hues; wools and knits make space for breezy fabrics; effortless comfort takes precedence in style.
This summer’s big trend forecast can be summed up in one word – Linen. The fabric is all set to take over the soaring city temperatures with its freshness, exuberance, and versatility.
Linen might well be crowned the king of summer fabrics. It soothes the severity of heat without killing your style. It is breathable, sweat-absorbent, resilient, functional, and classy.
We took it upon ourselves to prepare a little cheat sheet for your Linen summer dressing-

Don a slim fit Linen suit with a printed Linen waistcoat. Enhance it with the right accessories like shoes and lapel pin. And voila, you are a vision of elegance!
