The first thing that comes to our mind when we think of the monsoons is that even though its breezy and mesmerizing, we wish to stay indoors, have a hot cup of coffee and laze throughout the day but that’s not going to be an enjoyable affair always, is it? We’ve already embraced the rains and its now time to go out there and make a statement. To SPEAK FASHION IN THE RAINS!What to wear in order blend with season? Probably the first thing that comes to our minds. Our dressing illuminates a lot us and you do not want to look dull and lifeless when you’re on a mission to look otherwise. It depends on everything. From clothes to shoes, from hairstyles to accessories. Here are few things that help stylize your monsoon.
1- The Material –
We can all agree how annoying it gets when our clothes get wet and sticky. We all love Denims, but we know how uncomfortable they can be when it gets wet, and they also take ages to dry! Avoid wearing clothes made of heavy tough material. You don’t want to feel stuffed when the weather out there is airy and pleasant. If your’e sure your’re not going get wet from top to bottom, cotton is a great option. Wearing a loose cotton Kurti or a top would really bring comfort although with humidity rising, they don’t dry quickly. If you do plan on putting yourself out there, Nylons would be helpful as they dry fast. Also avoid linen as it tends to shrink.
2- Color Palette –
You don’t want to wear white during the rains because it gets transparent. Show boating bright colors like red, blue, green, yellow will definitely make you stand out and will make you feel confident and full of life. Time to wear the colors that you’d normally ignore.
3- Footwear –
Now this is important for many reasons. Its essential to have footwear with a good grip. You don’t want to slip and fall and messy which are a common sight during the monsoons. Avoid wearing shoes. It really takes a hit at everything when your feet are getting soaked. Not the best feeling at all. Also avoid leather as they tend grow bacteria and fungi when it gets wet.
Accessories in fashion work similarly as a garnish to a dish. Having the right accessories can boost your look immensely. You could use scarves, a proper substitute to the annoying ‘dupattas’. Having an elegant and waterproof watch may also add to your look. Having a bag that goes with the weather and your outfit is a win. Owning such a bag adds to your outfit majorly, giving you the felling like you own the trends game. You could also wear a minimalist less expensive jewelry made of wood or plastic. It is comfortable, light and hassle-free.
5- Hairstyles and make up –
Braids and buns are easy to maintain and could be a good option. Hair tends to get rough and sticky when it gets wet and gets painfully annoying while trying to make them right. Tie a bun if you’re traveling in public transportation, it’ll save you a great deal of mess. Avoid wearing make up. You don’t want your face to look patchy and mushy. Also, you need to take care of your skin. Use moisturizers to keep your skin fresh and hydrated.
6- Public places –
Going prepared for the worst case scenarios could really help you. If you’re sure you’re going to get drenched while going to work, carry extra pair of socks and a towel. Wet socks are really uncomfortable to wear and it stinks. Having an extra pair could also save you some embarrassment. Also, if its literally raining cats and dogs, wear a casual outfit like a tee shirt and a cotton pant.
