Rainy Day Style Tips
Monsoon’s finally here and as much as the thought of getting wet in the rain, sipping coffee while reading a novel and eating bread pakoras in this weather titillates us, we hate the idea of dressing up. What’s the point if it’s all going to get ruined the minute you step out? Choosing the right clothing can be a bit tricky, but you just need to put in a little effort. Dressing fashionably could be the silver lining on a gloomy rainy day. Here are a few dressing tips to keep in mind to not let the monsoons dampen your style. Get out of that warm and cosy blanket and get dressed!
The last thing you want after carefully applying your makeup is to be caught in the middle of a vicious downpour. Avoid embarrassing situations of your makeup running and your face looking like a complete mess. It’s best to keep it simple and go more natural. SpStay fabulous with some bright lipstick and waterproof mascara during the monsoons.

Bright Colours and Prints
Even if the skies are grey and the days are dreary, keep those gloomy moods at bay by dressing anything but dull this season. Inject some cheer into your daily life during the rains by wearing bright colours and fun prints to stay upbeat on a cloudy day.
The coolest way to make a style statement during this wet season is with fun, fashionable umbrellas. Instead of choosing a boring black one, get hold of a trendy one with cool colours and patterns and maybe even a fun handle. It is after all, the most essential accessory in the rains, so make it stylish.

‘Tis the season to look fantastic in plastic. Save all that costume jewellery and metallic accessories for later and load up on water-proof plastic accessories that can be chunky or subtle to suit your style. You also get rain bags that are more durable and save you from ruining your favourite, more expensive bags in this stormy weather. Leather, suede and silk are some materials to avoid this season.
When we think raincoats we think a long, unflattering sheet of plastic that does our figure no favours. However, now with its growing popularity the raincoat is available in chic styles that are belted at the waist and help you look pretty adorable in spite of some rough weather. Also, transparent raincoats are very stylish and don’t camouflage your dress.

Keep It Short
Stay comfortable in shorts, skirts and capris on a wet day. No one wants to spend their day in a pair of soaking wet jeans with mud at the bottom. Instead roll up your pants or wear a dress to stay relaxed even if you need to walk through the wet, windy weather.
