Monsoon Trends

Mumbai monsoons are finally here! With monsoon not only comes rain, but also mucky clothes, dungy feet and some eye-catching fashion mistakes that make us wish the season away to extinction. To fight your hate for the rains and the fashion blunders they it bring, we provide you with a cheat sheet on what to wear this monsoon to look stylish by feeling exorbitantly comfortable.

Printed Bermuda Shorts, Zara, Rs 3390

1.    Shorts and Skirts
Running to work when late or running for a bus that you’re about to miss, there’s not an inch on your leg that a muddy puddle is going to miss. Cotton trousers are likely to turn translucent when wet and denim pants are too difficult to dry off in this gloomy weather. The only solution to this quandary is shorts and skirts. Wear them with tank top or a loose fitted tee and you’re good to go.

2.    Tanks and loose tees
Sleeves tank tops and loose t-shirts should indubitably be your best friends this season. If you’re fighting a foul mood in this gloomy weather, decide to wear the evergreen denim shorts with tank tops to work. Printed or bright hued, anything and everything that resembles a tank automatically becomes a must have this season. Interestingly, shopping at men’s store for bigger t-shirts seems excitingly appropriate too!

3.    Raincoats, rain-trench coats?
These are more than a necessity today. With emerging trends over years, boring raincoats have vivaciously transformed into classy trench coats. And what’s more interesting is they are available in an array of colours and look just as gorgeous as an over coat worn in the cold. Go ahead and experiment with these rain-trench coats this season, especially the matte translucent ones that compliment your curves and establish your style.

4.    Flowy Dresses
Thoughts about buying a new wardrobe for a new season are no short of asinine. Pack away your cotton summer dresses and white linen pants for a bit and dig out the barely used chiffon and georgette dresses. The season is all about changing the fabric, not your fashion statement.

5.    Knee length rompers
No point in wearing anything below the knee for it is prone to getting mucky on your way to work. Instead invest in short rompers that not only save you the trouble of deciding what t-shirt to wear with your shorts but also provide you will utmost comfort best suited for travelling back and forth. Additionally, throw in a scarf or big earrings to seal the deal.

6.    Printed scarf
Accessorising your ensemble may seem like a must to fulfil your fashion demands but wearing a metal necklaces around your neck seem terribly distressing to the skin. Instead, invest in printed or bright monotone scarves which thankfully also work as a serviette for the desperate times when you’re drenched from head to toe.

7.    Flip Flops
Give your leather shoes a rest and instead go for colourful ballerinas and best yet, flip flops. Not only do they keep your feet clean and happy, they also prove effortless to wear without breaking your bank.

8.    Neon umbrellas
White is known to be the colour of the season; but as much as you’d like going monochrome all day, there will always be a visually disturbing absence of colour. In such desperate times bright umbrellas win over monotonous ones.  Invest in neon umbrellas that have a hint of nude colours to match your ensemble perfectly.

9.    Waterproof watches
Come summer or rain, an ensemble can never look complete without a wrist watch. Instead of opting for your favourite gold or silver metal watch, sport a colourful, monotone waterproof watch to match your clothes. These funky watches look best with a monochrome outfit, adding the much needed quirk to take you through the day.

10.    Waterproof tote bags
There’s always a fear of wetting your smart phone and important work documents in the rains, hence the expensive leather bags you recently invested in are going to sadly have to take a back seat in your wardrobe for a while. But worry not because fashion does not shy away with season, it only gets better. Lug a gorgeous, bright waterproof tote to work and we promise the leather bag will not be missed an ounce.
