Summer Lookbook | Look 4

Continuing with my SUMMER LOOKBOOK, I present to you Look 4 – perfect for catching up with your girlfriends after a work thing – a brilliantly simple summer dress in handwoven khadi cotton that you can belt up for a sharper look or just by itself for an easy day, paired with just a hint of shimmer via the boots and a pop of blue in the bag to make the outfit just a bit more exciting. I’m trying to bring you looks and dresses that you can actually wear everyday, indie labels that you can discover instead of running to Zara, Forever 21, H&M, etc everytime you want to shop so that you can own clothes that you will not only be proud to wear but styles that will also last you longer than a one-time F21 product. This is pretty much the gist of the #RedhuxIndieDesign hashtag – to bring to you local brands that are making great product – that I would wear (and prefer to fast fashion brands) in a heartbeat.

I’ll tell you one thing though – this heat isn’t making it easy for me to shoot my outfits for the SUMMER LOOKBOOK. Ideally, I wanted to document all my special summer outfits for you guys but it’s getting harder – I’m not a morning person so early morning shoots go right out the window and I can’t always find indoor, air-conditioned locations to shoot the looks and doing my shoots out in the open is just not a possibility. Bleh!

Hope you enjoy this look! All details and link to the dress towards the end of the post!

    Hi Akansha
    This look is so amazing for summer and Khadi cotton is king fabric of the season. I loved your hair colour, can you please share which colour is this?

    Can you give me some tips on how to get a nice jawline ? I mean it’s already decent but I want to make it more angular and clear. I’m at 12 percent body fat right now. I’m a guy btw

      Hi Kanishk, I’m not an expert on the topic and I don’t think you’ll be able to change the shape of your jawline without any surgical procedures. If you are comfortable with applying makeup then you can achieve an angular jawline by learning how to highlight and contour using your makeup (lots of videos on that on youtube). Way to go with your body fat percentage by the way! high-five!

    Your dress is super gorgeous. I love how the bright royal blue bag and the blingy boots have done their job in slaying. 😍
