Summer Style: Drishika Chander

As the summer sun is rising and showing its might – Hyderabad’s fashionistas aren’t shying away – resulting in the mercury soaring even higher! With a legion of fashion brands both international and home grown sprouting across the country, each upping the ante like never before, the fashion conscious diaspora is having a field day. Be it urbane or ethnic, the idea for the perfect summer look is to keep it clean, uncluttered, hip and cool! Effortlessness is the name of the game, the colours are pleasing to the eye – read pastels and whites, while the fabrics to go to are cottons and linen. Many among our Hyderabad brigade aren’t the ones to lag behind or sit it out, as they know where to go for cladding themselves with style. Presenting 7 Hyderabadis who nail the look every time.

“Why wouldn’t someone want to look good at all times? After all you are representing your own self so why not present the best dressed version of you… even if you’re on a grocery run! You have one life, look good!”

Nature: Cheerful, friendly, fun-loving

Sense of fashion best described as: Edgy, experimental, very me

Fashion is: Being your best self.

Self-rating on the fashion scale: An 8, maybe, as I always strive to better myself.

Favourite brand: I’ve always envied Valentino as they want to stay true to their history which results in timeless Italian sophistication and femininity.

Must-have accessory: I wouldn’t be able to choose one particular accessory. But I do have a few go-tos like my Stan Smiths, Prada sunglasses and Vintage pins, not to forget my favourite McQueen scarf.
