When you’re staying home for long periods or working from home, it’s sometimes difficult to keep your day and night outfits separate. This simple need gave rise to the biggest trend of 2020 and now 2021, lounge wear sets. However, in the local context these sets are simply greige colour co-ords but bright cheerful pieces that are designed for an Indian summer. Beat the hot sultry months ahead with these handlock printed cotton sets from homegrown labels like The Shop, Jaypore, Kessa and more.

Floral, aztec or geometric, these pieces entice you with their vibrant patterns and soft breathable fabrics.
