Monsoon finally seems to be here! While it is certainly good news for the farmers and all of us who have been suffering in the scorching heat for quite some time now, the advent of the rains generally means carrying multiple bags to contain your many essentials, and saying goodbye to fashionable clothes for 2 months. Not anymore! Like you, we too hate spoiling our looks by folding our pants and carrying a hundred different carry bags, all for the sake of comfort and cleanliness during the monsoon. So we decided to list down certain ways in which you can maintain your fashion quotient and brave the rains at the same time!
With muck and water all around, its almost impossible to save your pants from getting dirty. This is all the more annoying when you are traveling to your workplace. While folding your pants is the most plausible solution, you can avoid adapting this desperate measure by opting for ankle-length trousers and jeans. This way, you will not only look chic and mod, but also save yourself and your pants from suffering a fashion disaster and avoid the muck from dirtying your pants altogether. And if you dont mind getting wet in the rain a bit, then ditch the pants altogether and go for a knee length skirt with a chic shirt or top, and you are all set to take on the rains in style!
The body parts which bear the maximum brunt of the rains are your feet. So its very important that you wear the right footwear during monsoons so that your feet can breath while you face the horrors of walking through dirty, collected waters. So ditch the all-covering shoes and opt for trendy sandals, floaters and strappy wedges, all of which will avoid unnecessary splattering and go well with both your formal and casual dressing.
Napkins- check, umbrella- check, separate bag for wet umbrella-check, allergy tablets-check, windcheater for extra safety- check. These are just some of the items which become absolutely necessary to carry when the rain is pouring down. But the question is where to put them all? While at times it becomes essential to travel with multiple carry bags for all this load, a one time investment in a big and roomy, yet a fashionable handbag is certainly an attractive alternative.
How can we forget the most essential monsoon items? Although their prime purpose is protection against downpours, these days you can use umbrellas and windcheaters to complement your look and style. So say goodbye to plain, black umbrellas and raincoats, and make way for kaleidoscopic, patterned umbrellas and designer windcheaters, that will do so much more than just shield you from the torrential city rains!
