Check out the ultimate monsoon guide:
Fashion tip 1: Choose the right fabric
During monsoon, it is quite impossible not to get drenched when you step out. This is why choosing light fabric makes sense. Cotton, linen, crepe and other light fabrics are excellent for the humid weather. They are not only breezy but they also dry easily.
For men: Amp up your casual game with comfortable and light shirts and T-shirts. Pair Half-sleeves shirts and T-shirts with rugged jeans or joggers and you are good to go.
For women: Stay steer clear of tight clothings. Free-flowing floral dresses, cotton sarees, skirts, culottes and cropped pants will make everyone go ‘wow’. Give a twist to your attire by pairing culottes with short kurtis.
Fashion tip 2: Say hello to shorts and joggers
It’s time to bring them out your shorts and joggers. When paired with a nice top, you’re going to look dapper.
For men: Dark-hued shorts and jogger pants are ideal as they go well with the weather. Blue, black, steel grey and brown are perfect shades for lowers. Avoid wearing light colours for bottoms as they may get dirty easily.
For women: Shorts, capris, skirts and culottes are comfortable and fashionable. Pair them with a beautiful T-shirt or blouse tops for a killer look. Dress in layers —- wear a summer jacket over the top.
Fashion tip 3: Make a statement with bright colours
Monsoon is the perfect season to bring out bright coloured outfits. Orange, yellow, turquoise blue and fuschia are some colours that will make you stand out from the crowd.
For men: For an uber-cool look, pair a button-downed shirt with chinos or casual pants. For a vacation vibe, let the tropical print do the magic. The best way to pull off the look is to balance prints and solids. For an everyday casual look, pair a printed shirt with a pair of trousers. For a semi-casual look, tone down the vibrancy of the tropical shirt by wearing it with a blazer.
For women: A lively outfit is all you need to lift your spirits on a gloomy rainy day. For work, pick kurta in bold hues and floral prints and match them with subtle colours. For special occasions or weekends, go glam with floral dresses and brightly coloured pants and top.
Fashion tip 4: Rock the ethnic look with the right garments
Lightweight kurtas are great choices to slay an ethnic look during the monsoon. Contrasting colours can nail a cheerful look.
For men: Short kurtas teamed with pants or pajamas or shirt-style kurtas over a pair of trousers can make a style statement this monsoon. Quick-dry cotton kurtas are the best choice.
For women: Pick mid-length light fabric kurta or a short kurti and team them with monsoon-friendly culottes, palazzo pants and ankle-length leggings.
