Designer Closet: 5 Summer Must-Haves by Ritu Kumar


Aren’t we already tired of the bugging season? Let’s face it, the summer season is certainly the most unrequired time of the year. However, it does bring its own beauty. The colourful scarves and stoles, those ever adorable flip flops, oomph laden shorts, and the best part, beautiful cotton Sarees and Kurtis, are just the highlights of the summer season. So isn’t it time already to discuss some good additions to your closet. Today is going to be all about Ritu Kumar.

Ritu Kumar doesn’t need an introduction. Even at 72, she manages to excel in her art and gives a ride to several for matching her level of expertise. Her label is said to have the highest turnover in the Indian fashion industry. And no wonder, the celebs go crazy over her designs. Let’s take a look at some summer must-haves for your closet, all designed by the one and only Ritu Kumar.

Monochromatic Cotton Kurta with Skirt

White cotton Kurta with Skirt
Round Neck Full Sleeve Kurta With Skirt

If you are one of those people who stay in North, we feel you! Whether you’re a college student or a professional, this attire will suit you beautifully. Its cotton fabric makes it comfortable and the monochrome helps to make it classy and elegant. Wear mojris or chappals, some chunk jewellery, and complete the look with a sling or tote bag. If you’ve long hair, try tying your hair in a bun. It’s only going to enhance your look.

White floral Kurta with Cigarette Pants


It is a well-known fashion fact that white can never go wrong, it can make you elegant at any hour of the day. This A-line kurta is one of those staples you must have in your wardrobe to help you look classy and smart at the same time. The floral embroidery lets you skip off the stress about getting a necklace. Just complete the look with silver earrings. You’ll be astonished to see the glow it brings on your face!

Indigo Floral Saree

Now we all know the rage about indigo. So just take the leverage and get a piece for yourself. Indigo sarees, kurtas, palazzos, tops, everything are the perfect outfits this summer. The colour looks amazing on all skin tones without the need to be apprehensive about the complete attire. Give it a boho look with silver jewellery and tan chappals. You can also try the pom-pom earrings in trend these days.

Semi-fitted Suit

Fitted stuff is just a no-no for me during summers. If you live in the north, you know the horror the summers bring along with them. In such a situation, semi and loose fittings work out the best for us. It also gives our body enough space to breathe and I can easily walk around without sulking about the cloth sticking to the skin because of all the sweat. And that’s why this semi-fitted olive suit. I can’t tell you how much I love the colour and it suits well for office, evening strolls, and weekend shopping time.

Loose Fitted Aqua Kaftan

What’s better than a semi-fitted kurta? A loose fit kaftan. Right? And what better colour could be in than aqua, the perfect summery colour. I usually go for light summery colours throughout the summers. I suggest you also try implementing something similar in your wardrobe. How about starting with this aqua coloured kaftan? You absolutely have to not worry about any accessories mostly because it looks as good with or without any form of embellishments.

So go, rock the season with Ritu Kumar!
