New Delhi: Monsoon, the season of love, the festival of clouds, time for hot cups of coffee and even hotter doughnuts! But not everything is roses when the rain gods shower us with their blessing.
Monsoon, according to fashionistas, throws their style plans for a loop. Puddles of water can fall all over our clothes and an unexpected storm can hit when you least expect it!
How to escape the fashion emergency brought by the rains! Well, if there’s a will, there’s always an elegant way. Here are five tailor-made quick fixes to make this monsoon a fashion party:
Under your umbrella!
Where there’s rain, there’s an umbrella! Our good monsoon friends do a fabulous job of protecting us from raindrops and also prove to be the perfect style accessory. Instead of going for the stereotypical dark and dull tones, why not explore some pretty polka dots, multi-colored wonders and custom graphic covers?
There’s a whole new world to explore while holding an umbrella. Picking up a bunch of color coordinated ones that perfectly match all your outfits isn’t a bad idea either, you can get away with sublime grace, one umbrella at a time!
Where the wind takes you (deceit)!
If you’re a no-frills adventurer, the windbreak is usually your most reliable companion. Whether it’s a monsoon hike or a lake bike ride, the windbreaker is a light and nifty companion that protects us from the wet weather. But while shopping for these jackets, we often tend to go for utility over style.
Wouldn’t you rather choose soft colors and stunning designs that match our personal philosophy? Let’s step up our game when it comes to buying a windbreaker!
Show them who’s the boss!
If it’s the rainy season, you need to be alert. People often wear monsoon shoes that are unusually gentle on the eyes. Black is often the “go to” color and flip flops or sandals are often the “go to” footwear.
As it starts to rain everywhere, it’s time for our shoe selections to see a refreshing change. Cool and comfortable clogs, glamorous shoes for all seasons or bold and shiny boots can be the new fashion your legs need.
Bag for the basics
Our school life is rich with memories of waterproof bags that held our books, as well as some magically innocent moments. Childhood may be over, but these bags can still stay!
Stylish and soft rain-proof bags are now the best for both work and pleasure. Whether it’s transparent backpacks or cute backpack bags, there’s no shortage of style with these stylish wonders.
Find your “best scarf”
Scarves are the most underrated style accessories for the monsoon season. Not only do they act as a protective hat during light rains, but they also stand out as a great fashion statement.
From vibrant and vivacious hues to subtle and muted hues, there’s a wide variety of options to choose from that perfectly suit your taste. The only thing to ensure during a monsoon scarf party is that they are thin and light.
