All those boho-maxis and floral skirts, ikat kurtis and organic stoles – will have to be packed away for a sunnier day. Monsoon can be a demanding fashion change, but exciting if you’re up for the challenge.
It can be quite a dilemma to look fashionable or even presentable when it’s pouring and the public transport just makes it worse. Let’s look at some easy, fun things that can add cheer to the dull weather and make you look bang on trend. Here’s how to be a monsoon fashionista!
KNEE-LENGTH SKIRTS/ DRESSES – It’s Monday and it starts to rain the minute you step out the door. Sounds familiar? A Black or dark colour knee length dress with a blazer is sure to see you through the Monday morning meeting looking stylish. Pair it with rain-friendly shoes and minimal accessories.
CAPRIS – Comfort dressing is key during monsoons. Wear bright coloured tops with dark blue or black capris and colourful accessories. Jelly slippers/ Flip-flops in a neutral shade can last the whole season or try a pop colour to experiment.
ELECTRIC BLUE – We totally love this colour for the monsoon. It can look formal in a knee length dress or a top with cigarette pants. And for the evening, wear this shade for the shoes and accessories.
YELLOW, YELLOW – There is almost a yearning to see a yellow sunflower on a dark cloudy rainy morning. This colour goes well as a top, skirt, dress, accessory or even yellow sandals for those very dull mornings when you need some cheering.
UMBRELLAS AS FASHION STATEMENTS – A shade in every hue of the rainbow, this season umbrellas are hot fashion statements. Get yourself a vintage floral printed or a skull handle (Alexander Mc Queen) umbrella that are in vogue.
HEELS FOR EVENINGS OUT – Well the good news is, you can wear heels in the rains! PVC soles are the most durable and can survive your night-outs, rain-dancing and much more! Add to this rain-proof make-up and you are good to go!
CHEERY MAKE-UP – Fun, bold colours work wonders in this weather. Bright blue eyeliner or pop pink lips can transform your mood into a cheery one. Just a dash of happy colour is all you need to enjoy this romantic weather of baarish.
