Indian Ethnic Wear

Salwar & Kurta sets are the most practical and sensible clothes for this summer. Be it a function or daily wear, kurtas would be the perfect way to go about it. Light weight fabrics would make a comfortable work wear whereas heavy fabrics would be perfect for an occasion.

Here are a few tips on choosing the right type:

• If you are Apple Shaped meaning plump on your sides especially above your waist then go for A-line Kurtas with thin borders. Stay away from stiff fabrics like heavy silk, tissue and brocade as it will make you look bigger. Always go for fabrics like soft silk, crepe, soft cotton, linen and georgette.

• It is also best to avoid frills, layers, and glitter work around the part of your body which you do not want to emphasis.

• If you are too thin and would want to add some volume to your figure, go for heavy silks, jute, thick cotton and make sure you avoid fabrics that are body hugging.

• To look taller go for long kurtas. Long, flared Anarkalis suit smaller body frames well. But since Anarkalis are not always comfortable as casual wear, an A-line cut salwar with a little flare will be more suitable as a daily wear.

• If you are on the shorter side, then avoid heavy prints. For short body types, long straight-fit tops ending 2 to 3 inches below knees will help elongate the body. Short tops and very long tops will not suit this body types.

• Bright, bold, shiny colors are suitable for thin body frames and subtle, earthy, rustic, dark colors are for broad body frames.

At Pothys we have colours, cuts and designs to suit every body type. Visit our store or check out our collection on www.pothys.com

Budget Shopping

As much as we love looking at and wanting what celebrities wear, our budget always plays a big role in what we finally buy. At Pothys we constantly keep adding to our collection, designs that will make you look amazing yet are affordable.

Summer is a season when a lot of us prefer dressing light. Staying cool — literally speaking — is at the top of our list when it comes to qualifying clothing. That’s why it is important to get practical when it comes to the budget and the fabric.

Reasons why you should wear cotton in summer

• Cotton allows for better air circulation, and helps in absorbing and removing body moisture caused by sweat. It therefore minimizes fungal breeding by keeping your body dry and cool.

• Lightweight and light-coloured cottons will help the light to pass through instead of being absorbed and hence you will not feel the heat as much. If you wear loose clothes instead of tight fitting clothes, there will be ample space for the air to pass through.

• Cotton helps in bringing down the severity of any allergic reaction and is perfect for those who have sensitive skin. Heavy fabrics on the other hand cause rashes, skin allergies and body odour as they tend to trap moisture.

• So this summer, make sure you bring out all your cotton clothes, preferably light coloured ones, your sunglasses, hat or a scarf and get ready to embrace the heat!
