“Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.”
I'd like to believe season changes are Mother Nature's way of bringing some joy in our lives. Because new season bring with it the joy of a wardrobe transition.
I love the rains, mostly when I can sit at home with a hot mug of coffee and listen to the sound of the rain. However, braving the heavy rains and getting about your life is the difficult part. But come hail, storm or rain, we don't really stop dressing up, do we?
So here are some do's and don'ts to get you through this season!
- Choosing the right pair of shoes is most important this season. I avoid wearing my favourite pairs!
- Buy a pair of rain shoes. Owning a pair of plastic and rubber shoes is a must.
- To avoid the mud water stains at the back of your jeans or pants, wear them with buckled shoes or the ones with straps to keep your feet firmly fitted to it.
- The good old days of ugly duckback gumboots, umbrellas and raincoats are dead! You get them in pretty colours and prints now.
- When it comes to clothes, avoid thick fabrics as they take longer to dry. Opt for light cottons and chiffons.
- Opt for dresses, skirts, shorts and capris over jeans.
- Cropped pants were definitely invented to get you through this season. No cropped pants? Roll up your regular pants and you're good to go.
- The sun is playing hide-and-seek and its cloudy and gloomy. Opt for brights. Dress in the colours of the rainbow.
- Though sometimes its fun to dress in the colours of the monsoon..greys and blacks. Add a pop of colour if you like!
- A pair of light blazer for the days it gets a little chilly.
- I don't really believe in don'ts but you need to pack up your suede shoes and keep it at the back of your wardrobe.
- Wedges over stilletoes this season because when your high heels go into the soggy and muddy ground, it is not cool!
- I try avoiding whites especially when the rains are crazy. You wouldn't want to be all see-through, right?
- Full-length palazzos, maxis are best left alone during heavy rains. If you have to wear them, wear it with wedges.
Cropped wide-legged pants!
Rain accessory umbrella!
