Summer Essentials


It’s the mid of August and summer fatigue starts to sink in- that time when it is so hot outside you only wear cotton sun-dresses with sneakers and then try to pass it off for the office and Friday nights.  All of our summer time pursuits require something different of our wardrobes. Your summer closet needs to maximize versatility and minimize perspiration. Jaani Kandangwa from MFashionista has rounded up some of the must-haves for summer 2017 to achieve this delicate balance.

Banker Stripes

Tweaked and tinkered to bring a fashion forward twist to these classics, these pieces will help you rethink these classic blue and white stripes.

Wide legged pants

Opposites always attract so pair these trousers with a fitted tee.


Tee shirt dress

You can always opt for an oversized tee and ditch the pants when the heat gets too unbearable.

Waist Cinchers

Initially used in gyms, it is not surprising these make its way in the runways  because that is what fashion is all about- breaking the norm.

Ruffled sleeves

Every outfit should have a “hero” and this time it’s definitely the ruffles.

Floral Sundress

Throw on a basic white tee under your floral sun-dress to up the ante.


Embroidery is everywhere this summer, chain stitching its way on leather jackets to pinstripe dress.


A pair of loafers should be no.1 on your shopping list this summer.



Mules are taking the spot as ultimate It shoe of the moment for the variety it comes in.
