Monsoon Fashion Trends: What’s In and What Needs to Go in the Bin
It’s that time of year again when there’s water pouring like magma from a volcano. A dreadful time I’d say because you have to face issues like crossing puddles of water (or sometimes swim through them) and be dressed in clothes that don’t stick to your skin after the rain stops.
For men it’s easy- just thrown on a pair of loose fitted pants or shirts and get going with your day but for ladies with long hair and who like to dress to impress it’s a hassle. To help you combat these ‘troubles’ let me give you a couple of tips.
- Wear t-shirt dresses or flared pants and a slightly loose top. Avoid tight clothes; you might as well toss them while you still have the chance.
- Tie your hair in a ballerina bun or braid them sideways
- Wear flip-flops or water resistant shoes. Flip flops in pastel colors would look good for a day out with your friends or family but if you’re going to work buy yourself a pair of water resistant shoes in dark colors. You could also try playing with rain boots in bold colors.
- Avoid wearing white! Wearing white is a big no-no. Instead, opt for uplifting colors like turquoise, emerald green, orange or yellow. These are happy colors that make a gloomy and sticky rainy day much better. Whatever you wear, just make sure it is comfortable!
- Don’t wear big or chunky accessories. These go in the bin and studs and earring they’re in!
- Avoid lip-gloss under any circumstance. Fashionistas recommend opting for a tinted balm or lip stain instead as it adds the right amount of pop without making you sweat like a pig.
Monsoon time is a great time to unwind and relive those childhood memories that leave you smiling like an idiot. Play in the rain, make memories and have fun splashing others.
