Summers call for a complete wardrobe overhaul. It might begin from a change in the colourways, shift towards more billowing silhouette, and pick up prints and patterns which feel light in the searing summers. Though a tricky territory for many, florals are an evergreen part of summer, and Bollywood celebs have taken the trend to heart. Be it minute ditsy prints, exaggerated graphics, monochromes, floral embellishments or appliqué work, the trend has been reinterpreted in a number of ways. Be it Sonam Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, or Malaika Arora Khan, there is a reason why celebs remain loyal to it – it is extremely versatile and can fit all occasions.

Owning the red carpet in some of the most dramatic creations from famed designers is second nature to Kapoor. Butthe actor is known to play it easy at times. This kurta in hot pink with bandhani inspired floral prints sets the right tone for summer.

Dior, Burberry, and Prada – Ranaut is one of the few Bollywood actors who knows her labels well. But that doesn’t deter her from embracing exquisite Indian labels too. Needless to say, her appreciation for saree is not new.

How to wear it: This summer, experiment with not just colours but draping and embroideries too. This short saree, with beautifully done floral borders, is perfect for summer brunch. Just in case you want to break the monotony of the singular shade, loop in a blouse in white or grey.

Supermodels also play it easy in summers. And when you are not strutting on the runway clad in a bodycon Versace sheath,  you opt for something breezy. On her regular day out in New York City, Gigi Hadid was a vision in this Alberta Ferretti shirt dress. The muted base with quirky floral prints makes for a perfect summer look.

How to wear it: In case you plan to channel the supermodel too, maybe pair the dress with a belt.

We will have to give it to Kalank star Sonakshi Sinha for her unconventional fashion choices. Be it slipping into Anamika Khanna palazzos, Atelier Zuhra gowns, or Anita Dongre dresses, Sinha is game for shedding her past look and opting for something completely new.

How to wear it: One can hardly imagine printed power suits out of the boardroom, but Sinha broke convention in this Michelle Mason suit with a pussy bow blouse. Try it for work.
