A lot of people asked me why I wore this outfit, when it was burning outside.
Honestly, I didn’t feel it at all. I did feel my makeup melting more than once, but regardless, this crop top (yes it is one!) was comfortable and the boat-neck is very flattering, even on someone with broad shoulders like myself.
Alternatively, this is proof that you can wear a crop top in Chennai without worrying about revealing skin. The crop is subtle, but hits the waist, showing it off in the best way.
Balancing it with a pair of palazzo pants was mandatory; Chennai weather has become too brutal for jeans and any layering whatsoever. Bonus that these pants make a statement without being over-the-top. They’re one of my favourites!
I skipped wearing a watch and reached for light gold bangles instead, and my standard sandals. A cross-body bag with hardware adds edge + elevates the outfit just enough for summer.
A barely-there red lip, messy French braid, and simple makeup finished the look.
I have a feeling palazzo pants + crop tops are going to be my go-to summer uniform this year. What are your favourite outfits to wear to beat the Chennai heat? Let me know in the comments!
Wearing: Zara top, FabIndia pants, Bata shoes, Forever21 + assorted bangles, & Guess bag.
