Dear Auburn,

The weather in Delhi has become extremely oppressive! It’s way too hot and the scorching sun is merciless! Given the heat that our city is boiling in, could you suggest comfortable yet fashionable clothing options for college?

Dear Heat- averse,

Your query is absolutely legit. I, too, feel really uncomfortable these days. Thank goodness I have my Umbrella for protection!

Given the heat wave that Delhi is caught in, try wearing loose and comfortable cotton clothes. Summer dresses in floral prints, long and short skirts (depending on your personal level of comfort), and shorts are your best bet. If you like wearing Indian attire, go for short kurtis or kurtas that are minimalistic and don’t weigh you down. Palazzo pants, harem pants and dhoti-pyjamas are fluid and comfortable too.

Avoid denims. They’re really heavy, clingy and non-sweat absorbent. They’ll make you feel claustrophobic and trapped. Also, go easy on the accessories. Don’t wear very heavy earrings, necklaces or bangles.

The key is to dress like you’d want to feel: cool, comfortable and free. So make a wise choice from the above options, and you’ll breeze through the next two months!

A debater, a scholar, a fashionista, she is more of an outdoors person who likes to run 6-8 km a day, just to clear her head. She is an ‘Army Brat’, but an unlikely one. Reading a book by lantern light in a tent by the banks of river Indus after a hard day’s trek in the mountains is her idea of bliss. She wants to be an investment banker but admits that writing lets her escape into a world of ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’.
