TBD Presents The Ultimate Monsoon Fashion Guide
Needless to say, the monsoons are here are we are, once again, head over heels in love with the rains. But after the initial love evaporates, it becomes a little irritating when we come back home all damp and dirty, after a long day of work. Apart from the water clogged roads and extreme delays in public transport, fashion dilemmas are the next big trademark problem of the rainy season. Most women have to give up on their fashion choices and put convenience before style. However, we are here with our list of monsoon fashion must-haves for every woman. Read on to find out.
- Be very sure about the fabric that should be worn during the rainy season. Cotton, polyester, lycra and nylon are some fabrics that dry easily and resist mud and water stains. Darker colours are your best bet. Also, make sure you're not wearing fabrics that would stick to your skin or become see-through after a downpour! *fashion fauxpas*
- Love your long, flowy skirts? Save them for another season because the monsoons are all about those sexy mini-skirts ;)

- Avoid full-length trousers and opt for cute shorts, knee-pants or capris. We give denims a thumbs-down as they take an impossibly long time to dry!
- Switch your jackets with a trendy windcheater or trench coat. Match it with your outfit and you're done!
- Ditch the long salwar-kameez for dark-coloured leggings that you could team up with short kurtis. Replace the flowy dupattas for pretty cotton scarves.
- It's better to stay away from a sari during these messy days. However, if you ought to wear them, stay away from heavy, designer ones or those that tend to run colour after getting wet. A light, flowy chiffon sari is a stylish yet comfortable choice.
- Give your leather shoes, canvas shoes, sneakers and stilettos a miss. Invest in an affordable pair of rubber sandals, brightly-coloured flip flops or floaters. They don't collect water, dry easily and prevent your feet from staying damp all day. P. S. - Gumboots are your best bets!

- Stick to minimal makeup, at least during your commute. And don't forget to only stick to makeup products that are waterproof; the rains are not an excuse for smudged makeup!
- Leave the fancy handbags at home and carry your stuff in a trendy, waterproof tote instead.
- Control the temptation of sporting expensive jewellery. Chunky pieces of street side junk jewellery are your friends during the monsoons.
- Up your style file by matching your umbrella with your outfit! Sounds cool? :)
This rainy season, you don't need to compromise on your style quotient to keep yourself dry. Take help of our ultimate monsoon fashion guide and shine on!
