There’s no denying the summer blues for too many obvious reasons. The heat, the traffic, the constant struggle for that ‘summer bod’ that won’t answer your call. While you wallow in those summer blues, why not do it properly? No, I’m not suggesting a sunbathing session in 40-degree weather. A particular kind of blue has caught my eye (and heart) of late. Embrace summer blues in all its sweat and glory with the cool shade of Indigo. Soothing to the eye and to the skin alike.
We’re painting our wardrobe Indigo and looks like Bollywood approves. Yes, Bollywood celebrities and actresses are warming up to the cool shade of Indigo and nailing it, obviously. Here is Sonam Kapoor ace-ing summer dressing with floral co-ords in indigo. We’re loving this modern Grecian version of the celebrated Baroque print.
Dia Mirza put a fusion twist on her basic outfit with this indigo and white ikat trench coat. Très chic!
Miss World, Manushi Chhillar, loves the colour too. She chose an indigo jumpsuit, which was belted at the waist.
Take a cue from these Bollywood beauties and wrap yourself up in indigo. Here are 8 indigo prints that will set you apart from the crowd this season!
Meet Me Halfway
