Whether you’re already flauntin’ your summer styles at socially distanced hangouts, or you’ve let your lockdown loungewear take full reign (we’ll admit, we did), we’re here to share the trends to look forward to once we attend events carefree again. Here are four South Asian summer trends to keep an eye on:
1. Flowy & Free
There’s no better way to swirl and twirl into the summer months than an outfit that moves with you - no breeze required. This flowy and free oversized Rani Kaftan is the perfect fit for a bridal shower, garden party, and everything in between. The beauty of this oversized Kaftan lies in its versatility, you can dress it up with a gold chain belt if you want a form-fitting shape, or without for a relaxed look - you do you boo. Embrace the sun in a dress that’s ready to shine in moments that you prefer to be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons. It’s our favorite summer staple, throw-on-and-go-on ladies!

2. Fresh Florals
For the easy, breezy, beautiful, floral girl, we’re celebrating our roots with flower power. Season after season, fashion’s ongoing love affair with floral motifs remains as fresh as ever, with new blooms continuing to trend this summer. From bold, colorful patterns to subtle, daintier prints, it’s clear that we’re growing with the flow. This lightweight royal blue Aasman Lenghahas a flattering one-shoulder blouse paired with a floor-length skirt that’s perfect for channeling your free spirit into the summer months ahead.

Bold, bright, warm, and energetic; the trends for Summer 2020 infuse heritage and tradition with our eternal love for color to create playful pairings that express a youthful sense of hope and optimism. Some days you just have to create your own sunshine. From saffrons to olives, nature-inspired color palettes will dominate the fashion space as we all make time to go outside, breathe, and reconnect with each other and the world we live in.

4. Versatile Vests
Though typically reserved for colder months, this season, vests are making their summer debut. While layering can be a key challenge in the heat, light vests can add depth to your look. On top of a pantsuit or with denim and a crop top, there are countless ways to in-vest in your style. Whether it’s long, short, sheer, or linen, vests should be your summer staple when it comes to enhancing your look.
