Ahaaannn! Finally the time has come when you no longer have to care more about getting tanned or keeping yourself hydrated. Monsoons have hit the season and it’s time to chill and enjoy the rain. Monsoon is quite an important time in the Fashion World. Spring collection has long gone, and the most revered collection of all year; the fall collection is yet to begin. Monsoon then becomes the interim time period, during which the fashion world is free to experiment with colors, styles, or just enjoy the last season’s designs. Why should you be left behind? We bring you the Monsoon look book; five easily accessible yet very stylish looks just for you.
- Dress it Up – Monsoon is the perfect time to wear short dresses. It can be anything flared or fitted, colorful or pastel, all depending on your choice. You can pair it up with a big chunky necklace or a bag.
- Hello, High Street Fashion: Imagine walking down a rain-washed road, with the sky covered in dark clouds, and you are dressed in a fitted skirt and a black top. A vision indeed! Monsoons can bring out the high street fashionista in anyone.Arm yourself with either a fitted, buttoned down or a short skirt. Team that with a beige or a black top. Complete the look with a simple chain, glasses, a bag, and heels.
- Keeping it short: It is often said that the little black dress is a girl’s best friend in the fashion department. We disagree. That title should be reserved for distressed denim shorts! What better way to beat the puddles than with a pair of shorts. This ensures you get no mud on your clothes, and at the same time you get to flaunt your legs. If you are feeling too cold you can always slip on leggings under the shorts for that layered look. Team the shorts with some fancy earrings, bracelets and a bright top. Be the sunshine the world needs.
- Palazzo Party: Palazzos are probably the most comfortable pair of pants ever created. And, they are ideal for the sometimes humid, sometimes cold Monsoon weather. It doesn’t stick to your skin like churidars or jeans, giving you enough space to move around. If you are uncomfortable about teaming it with short shirts, opt for long tops or kurtas.
- Going Indian: Nothing says elegance like a long kurta dress. These dresses look like kurtas but are long enough to not need leggings or churidars. These types of kurtas are readily available in Fab India or Mother Earth among other places. Team them up with some pretty bangles, and a stole. You are good to go!
