The problem of how to stay cool during the oppressive summer months cannot be solved in one way. But starting somewhere in the middle between fuss-free textiles and florals is undoubtedly a good idea. Karisma Kapoor, who personifies the ‘less-is-more’ aesthetic, embraces both with her most recent ensemble, a jade Ritu Kumar anarkali. Esha L Amin’s billowing style is sure to spark your imagination for the next festive affair you have planned. For a May 2024 event, the actor pulled off a carefree appearance.

Many kalis, each displaying a distinct shade of green coupled with floral and plant inspirations, bring Kapoor’s Anarkali to life. The couturier claims that sequins, gold accents, antique Kasab, and elaborate embroidery techniques like aari, tikki, and zardozi are used to adorn the solid mint green bodice made of raw silk. Her ensemble was finished with a tulle dupatta and a pair of matching churidar. 

The most stylish celebrities in Bollywood, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, and Priyanka Chopra, have revolutionized the block printing movement with their fashion choices over the years. For Dia Mirza, hand-block printed ensembles have become essential elements in her closet.

Karisma Kapoor accessorized her mint ensemble with earrings and a necklace made of yellow gold, both adorned with green enamel work by Kalyan Jewellers. She embodied the low-key glam makeup look with her hair styled in a half-up, half-down “do,” soft smoky eyes, and natural lips.

Whether dressing for a formal event or a more laid-back get-together, Kapoor demonstrates that the classic hand-block print is a wardrobe staple come summertime. Block printing is usually done on lightweight materials like cotton or mul, so it will be easy to wear for summer.
