August has finally come a-calling; the sun is dazzling its last best smile, the wind blows its final sun-kissed breeze and thus, the earth is nothing short of a blazing oven. However, these tantalizing showers do nothing for the heat whatsoever! If not for the air-conditioning, your poor Ms. Bolly Chili would have been shriveled to cinders. Alas, one needs to be thankful for the little blessings in life. So while I take a deep breath and count my good fortunes, take a quick look at what our favorite B-Town stars like voguing up these humid torrents.
Prints rarely go out of fashion. Small prints, large prints, animal prints, flower prints or abstract prints, you name it and they have it all this summer. Prints work well on shirts, kurtas, jumpsuits and dresses as well. But don't go for an assortment of prints on one single piece of your wardrobe or that might just ruin the look. This orange-red dress with huge white prints may not catch your eye at the first look but you will soon be swept by the simplicity of it. Pairing the outfit with a couple of heavy bracelets and hair flowing in wavy tresses, Neha exudes the perfect summery look.
Maxis paired with loose trousers are in vogue this season, and if white is the colour of your ensemble, you can hardly ever go wrong with the look. The Raanjhanaa babe, who is also a style icon for many, carries off this embroidered white maxi with loose white trousers with aplomb. Accessorizing it with metallic or earthy shades adds a subtle glamorous look to the summery outfit. Loud colours of accessories can ruin the charm of the classic white, so do be careful when putting together your attire.

Blazers can always work magic on your attire. They can be teamed up with tees, dresses, shirts, playsuits and skirts. Bright colored jackets are the latest fad in town. Team them up with pastel or earthy tones and they can instantly pep up your ensemble. The bold beauty, Malaika Arora Khan, flaunts this soft yellow blazer with a printed dress. While Malaika goes bold with the short length, you can also team it up with a pair of jeans or trousers based on your outfit. Go unleash the summer vibrancy!
Floral prints and designs are synonymous with summers. Be it saris, kurtas, shirts or dresses, floral prints pep up the wardrobe just like floral fragrances pep up the spirit. What's best is floral prints work for all ages. The flimsy fabric with bright colored flowers makes up a perfect summery choice and Kajol does justice to the outfit with the simple drape.
Amongst the many outfits that caught my attention, these were some outfits that retained it. As I sign off, Ms. Bolly Chili has a bit of advice for you: Go floral, go bright, but make sure you get it right. As always, do let me know what your summer favourites are. Until the next time, adios!
