Monsoons are here again. Braving all the puddles, you have to reach your college on time. Its very difficult to choose outfits in monsoons because there are too many things to take into consideration to keep yourself dry yet stylish.
Do not let the pitter-patter bring down your style. Here’s a guide to stay comfortable all through monsoons without compromising on style.
Monsoons are too gloomy to wear dull colors. So gussy up in bright colors and prints; its the best way to make a bad weather day bright. Opt for colors like Royal Blue, Fuchsia, etc. as colors like yellow, pink and lighter shades of corals and blues can get dirty and transparent very easily.
PS Steer clear from white
2. RIGHT FABRIC
Its very important to choose the right fabric. Heavy fabrics like denim can get clingy as well as stinky upon getting wet.
Choose fabrics like cotton that dry up easily or ones like pleather that are absolutely waterproof. It is also the right time to wear your baggy tee shirt !
3. RIGHT SHOES
Keep your favourite leather shoes away, as leather can be easily spoilt when it comes in contact with water or muck. Cloth shoes like plimsolls or sneakers should also be avoided as they can get wet and lead to infections. Opt for plastic or rubber shoes.
4. WATERPROOF BAGS
Ditch your leather or cloth bags which can get wet and destroy what’s inside- your make up, notes or documents.
There are so many cute waterproof bags available everywhere, which will keep your make up and phone safe.
Let umbrellas be your ultimate accessory. There are so many beautiful umbrellas to choose from. Get yourself a couple of umbrellas to match different outfits.
6. BRAID YOUR HAIR
Until you have naturally flawless hair that dry up really silky smooth, do not leave them open if you want to avoid frizz and fly aways.
Hair is bound to get spoiled due to rain, hence it is advisable that you do not spend a lot of time on hair and opt for easier hairstyles- messy buns and loose braids.
You can also tie a bandana or use a head wrap if you are getting late. There are so many of them available online that would help tame unruly bangs and fringes.
8. WATERPROOF MAKE UP
Avoid foundation and opt for face powder instead because the skin tends to get greasy in monsoon. While using mascara and eye liner, select waterproof ones and wear long-stay lipsticks in natural shades. Avoid kohl, because it may smudge.
Now you're ready for the rains, butterflies ! Happy Monsoon ! xx
