While the rains are a welcome change to the unbearable heat, they’re definitely not welcome for the sartorial nightmares they bring along. Wet patches, wetter hems, and water-soaked shoes – monsoon whips up the perfect recipe to drain your style.
But, fret no more. With some smart, easy and quick wardrobe switches, you can carry on looking your stylish best, all monsoon long. Read on to see five intelligent ways to dress and beat the monsoon fashion mayhem
Switch Your Denims for Fast-Drying Bottoms
The last thing you want with a long day ahead, is going about your work in a pair of drenched denims. Switch the heavy fabric with fast-drying substitutes like georgette, polyester and rayon.
Switch Pants for Culottes
A wet hemline doesn’t exactly spell well-dressed. Give your long modest pants a miss when it rains and pick culottes or ankle-length pants instead. With a cut and style that suits every occasion and situation, this swap is sure to keep your style game intact.
Switch Maxi for Midi
Just like your pants, bunk the maxi lengths as well. Now is the time to bring out those flattering midi skirts and the sophisticated tea length dresses. Fitted or breezy, these are perfect to take you from day to night.
Switch Solid Shirts for Prints
Important meetings, that coffee date or well, just being out and about doing your chores will be easier to handle without wet patches and see-through spots on your top. Come monsoon, replace your solid tops for printed ones that can easily camouflage these awkward situations.
Switch Suede & Leather for Rubber
Monsoon isn’t exactly the best time to bring out your snazziest leather shoes. Switch those stylish loafers for shoes with rubber soles, and if heels are what you function in, pick out a cool pair of flat forms.
