Cherish this monsoon with bright colours and minimal looks – Monsoon Fashion Trends
Of all seasons, monsoon can be most confusing in terms of what and how to wear, either it may be apparel, accessories or makeup.
Fashion is all about the choice of what works best in your comfort zone. Here are few tips to keep in mind while you are planning to upgrade your wardrobe for this splashy Rain.
Strictly No to Denim:
This is the first thing you need to avoid. Though Denim might be your ever time trending style statement, but not for this monsoon.
Denim materials are thick and take much time to get dry. Wearing wet denim for a long time can cause skin problems. So avoid wearing denim jackets, shorts, jeans and the like. Instead, you can go for a loose fit bottom such as palazzos, midi skirts, culottes, wide leg trousers and slim pants.
BE IN YOUR COMFORT ZONE
Go for short-hemmed outfits to take pleasure of Rain. The advantage of crop tops, shorts, skorts, and short to medium-length skirts is that they do not tend to get dirty in the rain.
Monsoon calls for a good collection of dresses. These include drawstring dress, midi dress, maxis, shirtdresses, wraps and flounce dresses. If you enjoy street fashion, you might enjoy drawstring dresses, which are inspired by street fashion. Flounce dresses, on the other hand, are more feminine pairing maximalist detailing with modest silhouettes.
Shirtdresses with kimono sleeves are necessary for your wardrobe. It allows for sporty influences and a deep pointed collar, though the fit should be slightly oversized.
Tunics such as maxis and wrap dresses are the easiest to dry off thus it will easily get you soaked. Fabric maxis with fluted sleeves and lace panels are in trend now, so try those as well.
Midi dresses, which are neither too long nor too short, are good for rains. It can help with both a party look as well as for weekend shopping.
Pair with best Co-ordinates:
If you cannot go for a single dress, then opt for best coordinate choices. Take suitable top wear along with replacement of denim. Asymmetric Kurtis and A-line tops can wear with palazzos.
Long and loose fits stand out this season. Wrap T-shirts and skirts will give the same desired effect of wrap dresses in terms of dryness and comfort. You can go for cardigans with plain tees if you cannot bear the cold. Use slim pants, fit pants or midi skirts for bottom wear.
crop tops with culottes are a secondary coordinate choice. Culottes are loose in fitting, which can make you feel free and comfortable.
Waterproof jackets, hoodies and trench coats are already up in the market to replace the raincoats. Loose flare sleeve hoodies are a good choice to bear with the cold. Unlike the normal hoodies, these are slightly cropped with finishing at the hips. Use it with cotton trousers, midi skirts or culottes.
Embroidered sweatshirts are in this season, which can be worn with culottes or slim pants.
No to TIGHT FITS
Tight fit clothes will adhere to your body if you get wet. Use loose-fitting clothes made of cotton, linen, khadi or synthetic materials, or any other fabrics, which are easy to dry. Also, use garments that are half-sleeved or sleeveless. Even off-shoulders, dungarees or jumpsuits made of linen or cotton are most preferred. Shorter sleeves will give freshness, preventing water from clinging in your under-arms.
MONOCHROMES ARE FOR BRIGHT HUES
Bright colours are trending this monsoon season. One can see bright monochrome hues around, such as cherry, fresh red, blush, teal paired with neutrals like grey, blue and beige. Yellow is the pop-out colour, good for both dresses and accessories.
Avoid white, though the colour is trending, as it is not good for the rains, which could make your clothes dirty as well as transparent when wet.
ACCESSORIZE THE NEED
Minimal and Soften accessories are enough for Rain. Avoid tight water-absorbing footwear, which can cause bacterial growth. Nude shades are the top trends with gladiator sandals, open sandals, ballerinas, slip-on etc. Also, crocs, flip-flops, jelly shoes, silicon shoes, PVC boots, gumboots are flooding the market with funky colours.
Avoid wearing metal accessories as it might cause skin problems if it gets wet. Chokers and bright scarf are on trend now, which is a good choice. Never use open bags (like tote bags) as they can be problematic in the rainy season. Use bags with polyester inner linings and closed zippers.
Besides fashion accessories and apparel, monsoons are also the time for umbrellas. Bright coloured umbrellas are in this season. There are some with bright prints on transparent surfaces.
LEAVE YOUR HAIR OPEN, PAIR WITH LIGHT MAKE UP
Try loose hairstyles over tying your hair up. You can go for a ponytail. If you want to get a haircut, go for a short hairstyle, as they are the most convenient in the monsoon.
Heavy makeup including layers can cause many discomforts, as the air contains a lot of moisture, which can separate your makeup thus go for a lighter Makeup Look. Make sure to use Water-roof makeup or else it will mess up.
Something good to do this Monsoon:
Companies have started adopting recyclable goods into their garments. The design houses and other industries in fashion are making use of recycled items for creating fashion goods from garments to accessories. Thus, it helps our earth as well as the environment. However, very few are working on this idea.
As Monsoon is about taking advantage of all fun offered by Splashy Rain and Beautiful Green Nature. Hope You enjoys it by staying trendy and Stylish always.
