Right summer statement
Mulmul is now the current fashion statement. This summer, therefore, is a good time to mull over Mulmul and embrace the comforts of home spun fabrics. Ladies, go ahead and make a sensuous yet sensible wardrobe statement this Indian summer!
The best way to beat the drastic heat during the summer is to adopt fabrics that are breathable and absorb sweat. They will ensure you feel utmost comfort.
Mulmul or Mull, as it's called in Hindi is one such fabric. It is a very finely spun cotton fabric, hence it's soft on the skin and very light on the body. It breathes well, soaking up the excess sweat thus making it ideal for hot, humid and dry weather.
Five ways to incorporate mulmul to your daily wear (Kurtis, sarees, work wear, casuals)
Mul sarees come in an array of prints like indigo, block, shibori. Each of these looks really sharp as corporate workwear, when teamed with closed neck blouses.
On the other hand, if you are looking at wearing a mul saree for an outing, pull it over with a crop top and a low pallu. Add some colourful pompoms on the pallu edge for that colourful, peppy statement look that will fetch you loads of compliments.
If you like wearing kurtis, then you are in luck. You can overcome the heat in style. Kurtis in mul with straighter silhouettes, cleaner lines can take you to work, be it with plain pastel colours or even smaller printed motifs.
And if you are in the mood to have to some fun for a girls outing, then opt for asymmetric silhouettes in bolder colours or anarkali kurtis with tons of flare and a little bit of gota patti work.
If you are heading out for a brunch or a beach vacay, you will just love the white or bright summer dresses made out of this light weight, sensuous fabric.
Styles like fit & flare, A-line or maxi, will look and feel just as comfortable and chic. Mind you, all your friends are going to envy you.
Pastel or bright tunics, tops and shirts made from mul fabric are perfect for office or college wear. Team them up with tapered pants or skirts and a scarf or silver jewelry for a comfortable feel and a stylish look.
Being airy and light in weight, this home spun fabric also makes it an excellent choice for layering styles. Opt for double layered kurtas or wear a kurti over a flared mul skirt.
Even sharara pants or palazzos done in muslin fabric are super comfortable for your lower body. The choices with this beautiful cotton fabric are umpteen, bringing out the creativity best in you!
