For all you fashionista’s out there, monsoon styling can be such a buzz kill, but it doesn’t have to be boring and work on those seasonal videos from the right fabric, skincare, makeup and shoes.
We know that monsoon styling can be super tricky since rain coupled with humidity is like putting your life at risk, but we’re going to share some basic monsoon styling so that you have an idea what to share.
So here are some monsoon styling tips to tackle and look your best.
TYPES OF COLORS
I think rainy days are the perfect for experimenting with colors. From yellows to blue, pinks and green, and all the colors that add a bit of pop so you can stand out in a crowd, adds a lot of freshness and vibrancy on these dreary days.
- And you can also try on textured clothing or color block – they look super trendy.
And although we love wearing white, try to avoid it since it gets dirty very quickly and transparent.
INVEST IN BREATHABLE FABRIC
Choosing the right fabric in this humid weather is so important. Something that doesn’t require a lot of maintenance, is breathable and a quick-dry material in case you do have to step out.
- Linen and different types of cotton blends are the right on rainy days.
- Wearing printed fabrics is also a safe bet. Prints, colors and monsoon go hand-in-hand, so make sure to take advantage of that.
- Airier or oversized clothes look great any way.
- Avoid denim and body-hugging clothes.
Choosing appropriate footwear is also as important as choosing the right outfit. So avoid wearing footwear made out of leather, suede, canvas or any other material that rain can ruin. Wearing heeled sneakers would be a clever thing to do if you don’t have gumboots.
MAKEUP & HAIR
One word: water-proof makeup and throw that foundation for a while and replace it with tinted moisturizer. And keep it light. We have a fascinating range of items on counters that can be easily worn in this time of the year.
- By the way, go for colored graphic eyeliners.
- Use anti-frizz hair serums to tame those locks
Bonus tip: Make sure the accessories you choose to wear (bags, bracelets, necklaces, rings and other jewellery) are water-resistant so they don’t chip off later.
