If you ask us, monsoons are seemingly the worst season for your style quotient. Almost everything you want to wear risks becoming tarnished thanks to the muck and sludge all around you. As if that weren’t enough, you have to make sure that the material of your clothes is monsoon-friendly and more often than not you have to sacrifice a style statement in favour of comfort.
Well, as depressing as all of these things are, we’re now taking a stand against the atrocities the monsoon brings and we’re finally rebelling. This post is a rebel guide to quick, easy and effortless style options for you to look fantastic and fashionable this monsoon with limited risk of your outfit being ruined by a stray shower.
Romper – While jeans have their loyal fan following, we believe that rompers are the item of clothing currently ruling the roost - and with good reason too! Not only are rompers effortless to throw on, but they also can be customised with accessories in a million ways! Our favourite way to style a romper for monsoon is to go for the unusual but sexy leather jacket and strappy sandals combination. Not only does it add a bit of the ‘biker chic’ aesthetic, but it also looks unique and brilliant. You can buy rompers for women online from contemporary stores like Loco En Cabeza and style them in any way you like.
Shorts – Nothing makes you feel more in control of your life than when you’re rocking a pair of shorts, if you’re anything like us! In the world of Women’s online fashion in India, shorts are probably the most overlooked and underrated piece of clothing, but let us assure you that nothing can take on the monsoon like a pair of shorts can. With a cool pair of shorts like this amazing beige one, you’re safe from damp ankles. To top it off, we are positively in love with this colour as it’s neither obviously floral nor basic and serves as a blank canvas for any adventurous styling you may want to dabble in. Our pick is to throw on a dressy top in a bright colour and pair it with a printed scarf, chunky jewellery and minimal makeup with bold lips.
Skirt – Feminine, flirty and fun – skirts are the easiest way to make an impression without having to compromise on sensibility and comfort. You can buy skirts for women online in India in so many styles, colours and varieties that you’ll be positively spoilt for choice. We suggest that you keep things interesting by opting for a fun sleeveless button down shirt tucked into your skirt with a pair of sheer stockings for an added hint of sexiness. Printed skirts for women or ones with delicate embroidery like this one are perfect for a casual Friday, brunch date with the girls or virtually any other event you may have to attend.
Dress – Dresses are the last word in feminine style and with the sheer variety of dresses for women in India online today, we don’t see why you shouldn’t incorporate them into your wardrobe this monsoon! Popular opinion dictates that floral prints and bright colours should be your go-to for the monsoon, but we beg to differ. Opt for a less common print like this gorgeous striped piece and make heads turn wherever you go. Accessorize this gorgeous dress with a braided or embellished belt for a grungier vibe. Throw in a lemon yellow, parrot green or bright pink scarf to add a little pop of colour and enjoy all the compliments you’re sure to get.
While the monsoons are a tiring time for everybody, you can liven it up by opting to dress in fun and creative ways that not only defy the so-called rules of the season, but also cheer you up! Let your imagination run wild and don’t be afraid to experiment this monsoon!
