There are two things in life which women whine about not being enough of... healthy alternatives to fast food and stylish clothes. Even though our closets are always stocked with every kind of style that we can get out hands on, the 'I don't have anything to wear' issue is bound to rise up every single morning. More so in the summer, with temperatures being high and the sun wreaking havoc on our skin and style at the same time. The options for dressing up during the day becomes limited. Cotton ensembles and airy dresses become the popular choices but they aren't the only ones you can rely on.
Solve your wardrobe woes by creating fresh combinations that work for the summer. Chances are, the items in your closet can be paired with each other in more ways than one, you just to get creative!
To get you started, we have a few easy-to-pull-off pointers from our favourite fashion girls...
