Feeling blue? Summer days have stepped into their full glory- and while getting tanned while holidaying by the beach may be on your mind, the sun has its agenda of making you swelter. Your favorite PJs, a plain white kurta, a baggy cotton palazzo suit, or a rayon Kurti are the safest bets to take you through the day. But when it comes to stepping out, letting go of your fashion sense doesn’t sound great- even if the weather is harsh!

I had been preparing a color-checklist for the season, and have ticked-off of the blue palette as a color chart for 2020. Classic blue being the Pantone Color of the Year 2020, the blue palette is gotta be trending! And now is the time to counter the weather hotness with the coolest band on the spectrum- soothing icy shades of blue!

The color is unquestionably calming- and refreshing- all that you need to get through the heat! So if blue isn’t your top favorite, its weather and mood effect may still lead you to bring its varied shades to your summer closet.
