June 6, 2021 (IANSlife) We've survived comfort clothes and a zoom closet for over a year, but with summer in the air we can't help but ditch the lockdown wardrobe for some fashionable fun. A summer closet is all about bright colours and chic styles. If you've been religiously working out at home through quarantine, now is the time to flaunt your curves or abs.
