From vibrant shades to warm pastels, one can oscillate between the two extremes and yet look on point in summer, say experts.

Radhika Singhal, Expert at FabAlley, Matteo Lambert, Collection and Design Head, Bata India Limited, and Ritika Taneja, Senior Director- Categories, ShopClues, list colour trends for summer.

* Coral: Add a pop of coral to wash away the summer heat by bringing in a light playfulness to your wardrobe. Whether it is a dress or a shirt, coral will add that zing to your overall look.

* Mint: The cool hue will help you showcase your unique personality. Mint green is the new go-to colour, so bring the spotlight on your individuality through this beautiful colour. A short skirt in this hue for a Friday outing or a simple cotton kurta with a neutral coloured bottom for a regular day at college or work will look classic.

* Pink: Crank up the heat with a soft millennial pink hue this summer. Flirty, feminine and fabulous, this palette always pops and makes you look vibrant.

It is important for you to take a closer look at the fabrics you opt to wear in summer, say experts.

Narendra Kumar, Creative Director at Amazon Fashion, and designer duo Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna share which fabric to pick in summer:

Cotton: Pile up on pretty cotton dresses, shirts and skirts and flared skirts which allow air to circulate and move freely through the fabric, absorbing moisture. Easy breezy light-weight cotton chinos work best when it comes to bottoms, go for a lycra blend for added comfort. Opt for lighters colours to beat the heat.

Linen: This fabric has a relaxed vibe. These days you can find linen and cotton blends that makes them even more affordable. It will effortlessly complement any look while keeping you cool. A loosely woven fabric which allows heat to escape from the body and dries quickly. It crumples easily, which is the only thing you need to be wary off. Pair a crop top or t-shirt with linen pants.

Khadi: Handwoven, it is primarily spun with cotton and sometimes, wool and silk. Even without any added embroidery, it has an unusual appeal. Whether as a Nehru style jacket, kurta or sari, this fabric adopts a versatile look.

Polyester: Athleisure and sportswear highly works with polyester. This fabric is highly durable and water resistant and therein lies its biggest flaw. It traps sweat and becomes a sweaty person’s nightmare. While it is low-cost and remains relatively wrinkle-free through numerous uses, polyester outfits are best kept in your wardrobe for summer workouts and swimwear.

Denim: Summer is the time for denim shorts, skirts and dungarees galore. It’s actually a highly impractical choice. It is not breathable and the fit is fairly restrictive, making it a bad choice for the summer. A useful tip is to stick to chambray, which looks very much like denim but is lightweight and breathable unlike denim.

Flowy fabrics: Certain flowy silks like light chiffons and georgettes are great for evenings as these fabrics naturally adjusts to your body temperature. However, breezy summer wear is more than just choosing the right fiber; even the colour should be considered. Opt for pastel shades with subtle prints instead of opting for dark and deep hues. (IANS)
