It’s Raining Style
Monsoon Fashion Staples

Never, ever let the monsoon dampen your style spirit. Yes, along with the beautiful rains comes the flooded streets, mucky roads, high humidity, but so does the chance to wear colorful gumboots, short skirts, funky leggings and beautiful, romantic weather! So come rain or shine, whether on a long drive to a hill station or driving to work, make sure to stay on the top of your fashion game this monsoon!

Colourful skirts and shorts

This is the perfect season to master the mini skirts! ‘Coz unless you’ve got a chauffeur-driven car, there’s no way to miss the muddy puddles. So ditch your denims and invest in some really cool skater or A-line skirts. Go floral, go nautical, go fluffy… pick your style, but high-waist is definitely still ‘in’. Match it with breezy peplums, flirty halters or lace crop tops!

Fashion tip: Along with denims, avoid leather or other tight clothing.

Peppy dresses

When it’s dull and gloomy outside, you better not dress the part! Let your outfits be vibrant and at the same time make sure your dresses are well-cut; ‘coz too many layers or tailoring details can end up looking messy in this weather. Fashion tip: Use waterproof and oil-free make up. Try to avoid foundation, as the humidity can make your face sweaty and make your skin look patchy. Use concealer instead.

Cool leggings

Leggings are the best alternative to pants this season. Opt for cotton blends or poly-fabrics ‘coz they’re more weather-friendly. Go for bold, wild prints and match it with solid-coloured tops. And if you want to go for printed tops, match it with plain leggings. And yes, don’t forget to wear those colourful gumboots to add a bit of drama to your outfit!

Fashion tip: Keep your hairstyle straight and simple. Eloborate hair-dos are a task to manage, so instead go for nice bangs or a layered look. And yes, never leave your hair wet, it might lead to fungal infection or hair fall.

Lingerie

Now to the most important part – intimates! For bras, go for bright-rainbow colours. Brighter the better. Also, opt for lightly padded (so as to avoid embarrassing moments) but non-wired bras (purely for comfort). As for the panties, go for nude, muted colours and preferably seamless. And yes, now is the perfect time to stock up on underwear, as you know clothes take longer to dry in monsoon.
