The first drop of rain and you know it is time to take out those vibrant hues, easy to dry fabrics, soft textures, your waterproof mascara, those boots and a lot more! Make a style statement and beat the gloom, pairing color with comfort in your bohemian look, floral prints, chunky accessories and chic scarves in vogue.
Go For Minimal Makeup This Monsoon To Look More Chic
Heavy makeup during monsoons is a big no-no! Your makeup should be natural, smear-proof, and water resistant to avoid fashion disasters such as a running foundation or a bleeding lipstick. You can experiment with funky eye-liners and bright lipsticks to cheer up the dampened spirits but ensure they are smudge-proof.
Bold Prints And Monochromes
Bold prints and Monochromes are the flavor of the season! Go for exotic floral prints, graphic prints, statement prints, bold hues and monochromes in navy, burgundy, green colors which make you look taller and leaner. Team them up with funky jewelry and accessories and you are ready to walk pretty as a diva!
Opt For Comfy Footwear
Comfort is the key for trendy monsoon footwear. A pair of flip-flops, crocs or ballerinas in bright colors for those who prefer flat soles can do the trick. For those who need to run around in the street puddles, bellies or boots can be apt. You will look every bit dainty even when it is pouring messy!
During monsoon, the accent is on fabrics that are easy to dry and light on the skin but strong at the same time. Cotton synthetic blend is undoubtedly the best choice since it does not look flimsy even if you get wet. You don’t want to catch a cold getting drenched and staying all wet in this tenacious downpour.
Monsoon can take away the charm of your leather so flaunt those boho bags, floral appliqués and canvas totes with funky prints and bright neon colors. A stylish and trendy bag can really compliment your look and outfit and add a lot of funk to the dull monsoon!
Spot the fashionista in you with colorful beads and bright funky jewelry to accessorize your look. Switch to plastic or metal jewelry as wood takes longer to dry. Avoid wearing expensive or delicate jewelry during monsoons!
Designs in Vogue
With all the mud and slush spluttering around, it is wiser to stick to capris in dark colors, shorts, knee-length skirts and dresses, tunics and bermudas. Sleeveless or half sleeves tops and kurtis are a better choice when compared to their fuller versions. You can opt for sleeker silhouettes and shorter hem-lines and make heads turn this monsoon!
Monsoon Trends for Men
A comfortable pair of denims, chinos, cotton cargos in safari and military prints teamed with bright colored T-shirts or pastel shirts looks the best during monsoon. Team it up with crocs, slip-on, boots or even canvas shoes and you are ready to rock the monsoon party!
Monsoon brings new life and vigour with fresh tint of green all around. Fresh shades of pastel and solid colors are a must have in this monsoon to suit both men and women equally well.
