The biggest hit of the season was the pastel colors. Simply put, pastels are mild, creamy colors that soothe you on hot summers. Pastel colors trended everywhere from weddings to workplace. The subtlety and femininity oozed through these hues are unmatched with other light shades that were ruling the summer trends until then.

These colors remind us of all comforting things of summers such as ice creams, cotton candies, cherry blossoms, and beaches.

  1. Floral prints

Just like pastels, florals are something that makes sure to give you a fresh look despite the hot weather. The once-popular theme of printing florals is back in vogue again, and this time with more details added to the fabric that holds these patterns. These prints also included terrestrial designs.

  1. Over-sized tees and tops

Indian summer can be too sweaty sometimes. Here comes over-sized t-shirts and tops to your rescue. As these loose cloth pieces trended this summer, you need not find embarrassing to put on one during lazy sunny Sunday. Loose clothes will now keep you feel breezy, yet stylish.

  1. Experimental geometric frames

Another head turner of this season is the experimentation with different geometrical frames. Kitsch glasses and Gucci frames made a statement this season. So, you have a sure choice to make for sunglasses henceforth.

  1. Cotton

Last but not the least, our summer favorite and our skin favorite fabric—cotton. Cotton outfits never go out of style, especially for Indian weather. Any outfit made out of cotton suits our skin and skin tone. There is no second thought given over the fabric for summer when the fabric is cotton. Match this fabric with any colors, dark or mild or rustic; it always ends up showing you elegant.

More than every other new trend, it was the pastels that made a big impact in the summer fashion. These ice-cream colors stole our heart once for all.

When summer arrives, it is an added task to safeguard your expensive winter clothes along with other occasionally used clothes.

Whether it is a winter clothing piece, such as sweater, scarf, Cashmere shawl etc, or any garment for that matter, it is very important to wash the clothes appropriately before storing it. Besides washing, it is also necessary to dry them completely before stacking it up. Only clean and dry clothes can ensure the long-term storage without any damage to the cloth by fungus and moth. Moths are lured by the body perfumes, scents and food odor etc. Drying the clothes in summer can be bit daunting, as the sunlight during these days cannot be very welcoming to the outfits that are vulnerable to fading.  If not sunlight, you can always air dry them in your room in order to get rid of these foreign unwanted guests.

  1. Wrap it up

Wrapping the clothes with another layer of protection can help in many ways to protect your dear expensive clothes. The layer of protection depends on the fabric of the garment. For example, woolen outfits and silk or Cashmere knit shawls must be covered in transparent airtight plastic bags or covers.  However, some garments require to be covered by a layer that can give little ventilation. When ventilation is spoken about, it is also important to choose your closet that provides aeration to your wardrobe. As much as a garden, your closet has life too. The closet has to be dry and void of moisture. To ensure a dry surface, chemical desiccant can be used to absorb moisture.

  1. Fold the right way

There are a lot of options when it comes to clothing. Not all the garments behave the same way, though. Not all are treated the same way, too. Some may need to be folded, whereas some may need to be hanged. The one embellished with stones, pearls, laces etc. need to be protected with acid-free tissue paper in between each layer. Therefore, read the instructions of every garment before washing and storing it.

These are some of the little steps that can be ensured before storing your expensive clothes in summer. So get started to store it the right way, and let your expensive clothes take a long summer nap.
