As much as we’d like to, wearing tanks and jean shorts all the time to beat the heat is practically impossible. Simply because we will burn. How drab! There is no denying that summers are a sweaty mess and harsh on our skin, as such, adjusting our wardrobe to match the sunny vibe of the day becomes crucial. There are few articles of clothing that can help… flowy skirts, crop tops and summer dresses are just to name a few. Today though, we are going to talk about the cotton kurta. The unsung heroes of keeping desi girls cool while looking stylish in the sweltering heat!
A nice cotton kurta is a great investment. For summers, the fabric is breathable enough to keep you comfortable and is gentle on your skin when you are glistening all day long. Their lightweight nature comes in handy when you need the help of the lowly sleeves to keep yourself from tanning, while not feeling like you have ‘too much on’. Also, they come in some of the prettiest colours. We picked out a few super stylish ones to save one day and many other days for Summer 2018!
