For a defiant dose of summer minimalism; I gravitate to the DinaUdupa Khejri classic kurta set for women.
In August; London is a bubble of muggy heat with sweat clouds looming over us. The thought of exposing large amounts of flesh is counterproductive to cooling down; in fact, it only makes me perspire more.
Silk is a secure passport to summer dressing. Not only does it look chic, but it also has smart properties. It is a natural thermal regulator keeping the wearer warm in winter and cool in summer. The reason being in winter; the silk threads capture the air in-between, creating an isolation effect with the heat kept inside. Silk also travels well; it packs easily and looks effortless dressed up or down.
My brand DinaUdupa trades in Anglo-Indian clothes and accessories. The Khejri classic kurta set is a simple piece epitomising the roll-up-and-go summer mood.
Here is a look at how to accessorise DinaUdupa Khejri classic kurta set for women:
