Make way for white this summer

Fashionistas have long proclaimed that you can never go wrong with black.

kunal The LBD (li’l black number) has never, and will never, go out of style. But now, it’s sure got stiff competition from the opposite member of its colour family — white. Be it because of the summer heat, or the spring in one’s step because of Spring, but white is overtaking its dark cousin and becoming the fashionable colour of the season. While whites and pastel shades have always been popular as ‘summer colours’, what’s new this time around is that people are not just donning white during the day, but at night too. No, it’s not just a brunch colour anymore, it’s the uber cool shade of Mumbai’s nightlife!

Take glam dolls Dia Mirza and Genelia D’Souza, for instance, who were seen wearing a chic white dress and white pants with a white blouse at recent late-evening events. What’s more, it’s not just the women, the men are donning the safedi ki chamak with elan too! There was the ever-stylish industrialist Yash Birla who dazzled in all-white at his recent do and even Kunal Kapoor showed off a casual white kurta teemed with a white gunjee and white pants with flair.

Designer Anamika Khanna feels white is a “chic” and “interesting” colour to sport in the night, for white attire can be accessorised to the tee. “You can go all white, and then accessorise with long necklaces, pearls, metallic jewellery, black, or even tribal stones like corals and turquoise. On the other hand, clean white also looks very classy,” says Anamika. Designer Gayatri Khanna feels white is the perfect colour for the sweltering summer of Mumbai, with its cooling, calming effect. “In the daytime, white can be accessorised with wooden beads or silver and for a more formal look at night, it can be teamed with black, gold or diamonds,” advices Gayatri. White has always been a universal colour, now it’s time to glamourise it a bit, up its oomph quotient and flaunt it when its dark outside. Go ahead, be white tonight!
