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.
