Look ready for the monsoon with these fashion tips
The days of long, scorching summers are finally over and gloomy hours followed by cool and gentle breeze are back. It’s official: monsoons have arrived! But even if you are captivated by the beauty of rains, the prospect of going somewhere drenched is not appealing at all. The season is undoubtedly the most challenging time to look your best. One must be careful when dressing up for the rains, changing temperatures, and humidity.
When it comes to monsoon fashion, it’s all about bright colours, cute prints, and comfortable clothing. From the office to work from home and cozy dates, dress up in monsoon-friendly pieces that will impress your peers and everybody around you!
Jeans are a classic but it’s time to pull out your shorts and jeggings from the closet and take them for a spin. While denim soaks up water and makes it heavier and uncomfortable, jeggings do the opposite. They are made up of lighter fabric and dry quickly when wet making them a clever alternative during monsoons. They are made up of denim and spandex and have an elasticated waistband.Style can come with comfort too as shorts are the most sought-after garment during monsoons. Make them your monsoon staple as they are non-fussy and practical during the season. We cannot think of a more ideal pair than shorts and a white top and sneakers. You can style sneakers with jeggings too or opt for rain boots and a T-shirt.
We live in a country where colour is celebrated and plays an important part in the celebration of seasons. With pastels being the flavour of the summer, bold colours have taken over this monsoon. Don’t let the rains dampen your spirits or restrain you from looking ravishing.
Wear cheerful colours to beat the gloomy vibes as they lift up your mood instantly. Throw on a bright coloured kurta with leggings or a palazzo and you are ready for a busy day ahead at work. Avoid wearing heels for the risk of slipping and opt for comfortable flats. A cute and colourful dress will attract the eyeballs and you’ll be the star of the party. A matching co-ord set is the perfect attire for a relaxing day at home.
Add a fun factor to an otherwise dull day by playing with exaggerated and dramatic silhouettes. Ruffles, asymmetric hemlines, cute patterns, and hemlines bring an element of excitement to an outfit. Ultimately, it’s all about comfort and style that shows your personality in the form of a first impression.
Flaunt those shirt dresses and show off your legs. Heels are a definite no-go this season. Not in a mood to wear a kurta? you can go for a kaftan top which you can wear as a dress or will also look uber stylish with leggings. But if kurtas are your jam, ditch the regular silhouettes and go for a tiered or bell-sleeved kurtas. Wear dresses in interesting patterns and ruffle detailing with flat pumps as they look ultra-feminine.
Monochrome shades are trending again this season. Dressing in monochrome colour means wearing one colour from head to toe. Wearing a single colour creates a vertical illusion and instantly makes you look slim and tall. You can experiment with different textures of the same colour to make your outfit look more interesting. Even if your top and bottom wear are of the same shade, adding textures like ribbing, pleats or ruffles gives an outfit an interesting dimension and relief from sameness. Palazzo set with simple thread work looks elegant and sophisticated and can be worn on different occasions. A beautiful flowy sharara with a short kurta and a dupatta is a perfect outfit for a festival or a wedding. A pair of juttis and chaand balis will seal the deal. A maxi dress is supremely comfortable and most favoured for a day out with friends or lounging at home.
The florals are forever favourite of fashion lovers and they are ideal for the monsoon season. They are vibrant, flirty, colourful, and flattering and are perfect for lunch dates or casual dinner get-togethers. Florals are timeless that can be worn over and over and never be overdone. The best way to highlight a bright floral accessory is to style a floral scarf with a monochrome outfit. This look will work well with minimal jewellery and no make-up look. A short floral dress is a go-to outfit and is sure to brighten up your day!
