What’s Your Monsoon Style? Stylish Bottoms To Pair Your Pretty Tops With
Coco Chanel has rightly said, “Every day is a fashion show and the world is your runway.” No matter what day, month or season it is. The monsoons are finally here and it’s time to carry your umbrellas and put on those rainy shoes. But, that’s not enough. While the rain is going to try its best to not let us wear our favourite outfits, we’re not going to be affected by it. Because, for us, fashion is living and we have a little of everything for every season. We’ve already told you where you can buy your monsoon essentials. Now we’re going to tell you how you can create your very own monsoon style using our pick of trendy-yet-practical bottoms.
Bring It Back : Culottes
We know you’ve already worn these in the summer, but sometimes comebacks are much required—especially when it’s the rain gods who want it back. If you’ve styled your culottes with sheer tops, leather bags and stilettos, now try something else. These cropped, skirt-split pants work wonders during the rainy season.
Wear them with: A classic white shirt, topped off with a neutral colour jacket at the office. For last-minute evening plans, simply pair them with a strappy top and for a sexy party look, pair them with a shiny blazer with a deep neckline and you’ll look as hot as ever.

The Vintage Style: Overalls
This ’90s style is never going to make your look boring. No, we’re not talking about the denim overalls—these are cotton printed ones to give you that much-needed comfort while travelling in the rains.
Wear them with: Wedges or ankle-length boots to grab everyone’s attention on the streets.
Your Style, Your Twist: Cropped Pants
So what if it rains? We’re not going to be able to skip our office. And how much will you rely on your skirts and dresses? Cropped pants are perfect for both a formal look as well as a day-to-night look. Get rid of those straight-fit trousers and put on some cropped pants to work in style this monsoon. Wear them with a formal shirt and stilettos or with a casual tee and shoes. Make it yours and give it your own twist.
Wear them with: A tucked-in printed blouse for a ladylike look; a cool tee and flats for a casual look; and a crop top under a sleek coat for a sizzling Saturday night outfit. For more styling tips, click here.

Take It From The Bloggers
Sometimes what you have is just not enough to answer the ‘what to wear’ question—and that’s why we love our fashion bloggers. Take a look at how these bloggers rocked their styles.
Sonu Bohra, one of the bloggers at Fashion Bombay wore a blue ombré floppy skirt with an orange top and completed her look with an embroidered DIY clutch. They say, you should wear bright colours so that the heavy rains don’t make you feel dull. And when you wear bright colours like these, you’re sure to feel refreshed all day long, no matter what!
Wear it with: A classic white shirt for a subtle look. You can also pair the skirt with a fitted turtleneck or cropped lace shell top for an evening out.
We must say these girls are rocking the monsoon looks. Jasleen Gupta, the other blogger at Fashion Bombay wore a red kurta with a crepe skirt on a rainy day. That’s something we’d never imagined and it doesn’t seem disappointing at all. We love her quirky style, and the yellow umbrella just makes the whole look all the more fashionable.
