Shopping for women has never been an easy task. Women always want more and more of every item in their closet, be it clothes, shoes, handbags or other accessories. With Summer, the perfect ensemble becomes a maxi dress paired with chunky accessories, cool jelly sandals (in candy colours) and a statement cross body bag.

Not a maxi person? There are plenty of dress options for you besides maxis. You can buy cool midis, skater minis or floral bodycon dresses this season. Opt for fabrics that help your skin breath and help you stay cool. Sticky fabrics will not only make you feel uncomfortable but will also take away from your style quotient. You could also sport flowy medium-long length skirts or palazzo pants that are breezy and uber comfortable. If you’re more of a jeans and trousers person, opt for thinner fabrics like linen and cotton in bright colours. Pair with a solid coloured tank or a floral sheer top and you’ve nailed two trends this season – colour blocking and floral.

Which woman does not love handbags? They want to buy a different handbag in every colour for every occasion. Besides the quintessential blacks, browns and whites, experiment this season with colour in your handbags too. From leafy green to hot pink, you have a plethora of colours to choose from Go bold with fiery yellows or bright oranges. It’s all in the handbag this year! Make it your statement accessory. There are various styles for you to choose from. Totes and shoulder bags for casual every day outings and formal clutches and wristlets for evenings. The most coveted style of handbag currently is the crossbody. This super convenient handbag can be slung across the body on your shoulder. No more worries about the bag falling off your shoulders or making your arms hurt. This bag can be carried with dresses, skirts, jeans and pretty much all your ensembles. If you haven’t already, shop a crossbody today!

Shoes are an addiction for women. In the summer, you can experiment with various kinds of styles. Pack those boots and closed shoes and get out your flip flops and wedge heels. Depending on the outfit you decide to wear, you have a variety of styles to choose from. Designers worldwide have designed shoes that are perfect for hot weather. Be it jelly flip flops or cool gladiators, you can jazz up any outfit with the right footwear. Pair maxis with studded gladiators or flip flops in neon colours. For a more formal look, pair your summer outfit with wedge heels that are extra comfortable and super stylish.

Complete your outfit with a stack of bangles or bracelets, statement ring or funky charm bracelets. Add long necklaces in layers and you’re good to go! Make sure not to over accessorize as this is normally considered a major fashion faux pas. Always remove one accessory before heading out as said by Coco Chanel. Wear toe rings to add a delicate touch to your feet and pair with all open shoes,.
