The temperature is rising, signalling that its time for all your woolies and long sleeves beat a zippy retreat. Purvi Verma tells you what’s new in stores for summer 2013.

Stores have stocked up their summer collections. Monochromes, beads and florals are some of the early trends we’re seeing this summer, so read on and stay chic in spite of the heat.

Bead it

Give your ballerinas and boots a break because letting your feet breathe is just about the smartest thing you can do in mercurial weather.

on trend.
