7th Jun 2014

ummer is synonymous with longer days, shorter nights, pool parties, holiday season, cut-out swimsuits, tropical cocktails and of course, the much-loved beach cover-ups. Naturally, tunics, kaftans and sarongs are essentials in every girl's wardrobe for beach vacations or summer soirees. Indian designers like Rocky S, Surily Goel, Nandita Mahtani, Shivannaresh, Turquoise & Gold as well as a few new talented kids on the block have created ensembles with flowy fabrics, pastels and summer hues in fabrics that breathe and don't crease easily. Here are a few of our favourites:

Shivan naresh: Based out of New Delhi, Shivan Bhatiya mastered the art of leather corsetry and accessories while Narresh Kukreja specialised in women's wear at The National Institute of Fashion Technology, New Delhi.

you back between Rs 5,000 - 10,000. Turquoise & Gold: What makes this brand unique is print and impeccable finish — Turquoise & Gold epitomises contemporary resortwear that is both elegant and stylish. The label focuses on feel-good prints, travel-friendly material that won't need ironing, and easy breezy silhouettes perfect for tropical vacations and beach retreats. What we recommend: Their sexy monokinis with embellishments, halter neck bikinis as well as their bright, floral, summery sun dresses and maxis that cost Rs 5,000 - Rs 30,000. Surily by SurilyGoel Floral prints, easy flowing silhouettes and sunset shades that evoke an aesthetic, reminiscent of "holidays in Ibiza" are synonymous with Surily's line of resortwear. She's got shift dresses, jumpsuits, kaftans and drapes as well as shorts and beach pants that add a hint of playfulness. Georgette, jersey and lace are the main fabrics in this collection. For evening wear, on the rack are dresses embellished with sequins and jewelled stones. What we recommend: Her exquisitely detailed cocktail dresses and gowns. These pieces are incredibly versatile and can be worn simply in the evening or with accessories to create the perfect evening look. Rocky S One of the leading designers of India, Rocky S is known for his unique sense of styling for both men's and women's wear. Rocky believes sensuality is his style statement and lives his identity as a fashion artist. He started experimenting with resortwear late last year and we love it. What we recommend: Everything! His entire collection is sensual, stylish and incredibly sophisticated. Nandita Mahtani Playing with pastels like coral, green, yellow, pink and different shades/textures of white, Nandita has a striking line of structured kaftans, one shoulder dresses and some tube dresses. Nandita's designs are defined by her clean cuts, simplicity and timeless appeal. She works with a lot of trimmings, lace, mesh, beadwork and intricate embroidery to amp the glam potential — it seems to have worked, considering her client list includes Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Beyonce and Naomi Campbell! What we recommend: Her classic one-shoulder dresses and structured kaftans that you can wear for poolside lounging or dress up for a cocktail dinner.
