Given a choice, most of us would always pick comfort over style. After all, when you are not comfortable in what you wear, you can't really have fun in what you do. Isn't it? But then there's always that need to sport latest style trends and stay at the top of the fashion game no matter how inconvenient it may be. The truth is that staying stylish doesn't necessarily mean that you need to forget all about easy clothing. In fact, relaxed wear has probably never gotten as much love as it's been getting this spring-summer, thanks to the celebs.
With the right style tips, you can actually make the most of breezy clothes and yet look chic. Here's how:
For a stylish office look, try to strike a balance between traditional and modern styles. Go for a kurta with long slits on the sides or those that come with asymmetrical cuts. Add a pair of well-fitted pencil trousers in the same colour palette to keep your look suitable for work.

It's an everyday look that can be transformed into a great travel look by adding statement earrings and a scarf. Or for a lunch date with friends, pick a palazzo in bold colours and team it with a pretty top.
