Contemporary fashion, calls for a poncho made from an old veil to make the look real trendy.
Besides these, a brand new kurta in subtle shades and designs are ideal for summers. Sprucing up for summers also means that one should take care of the wardrobe. Cotton, khadi and other light fabrics in suitable colors are indeed the flavor of the season.
