Sum­mer calls for easy breezy, com­fort dress­ing and these Bol­ly­wood di­vas show us how. Ac­tors like Richa Chadha, Sonal Chauhan and Yami Gau­tam have been mak­ing a ca­sual state­ment with their T-shirt dresses and you can too. What’s more? They are your per­fect travel com­pan­ions. “When you are trav­el­ling, you don’t want to wear any­thing which is dif­fi­cult,” says de­signer Nida Mah­mood, adding, “More­over, norm­core is our coolest trend, ev­ery seg­ment of fash­ion is fol­low­ing it.” Norm­core in­cludes dress­ing up in an un­der­stated, ‘nor­mal’ way to make a state­ment.

Travel to­day is about mar­ry­ing style with com­fort, says de­signer Nachiket Barve.

Any tips for styling the dress? “It’s best to wear it with flat shoes, like sketch­ers. You can pair it with a waistlength jacket and boots,” says de­signer Nikhita Tan­don.

Nida’s ad­vice is to style it with ac­ces­sories, like a neck­piece or a back­pack. “It will be nice to wear a shirt col­lar as a neck­piece that can be but­toned on the front. It adds value to a ba­sic sil­hou­ette,” she says. How­ever, there are some point­ers to keep in mind. “What it needs, is to not make it look hy­per ca­sual. The right kind of ac­ces­sories are im­por­tant. A state­ment heel can add a lit­tle bit of edge to the look. A nice liner and a top knot looks great too,” says Barve. So you can DIY too, and take some on­line guid­ance.
