Fashion hacks for the monsoon

Models flaunting monsoon wear in the West is something every woman would go gaga over. But, having settled in India, there are slim chances to try ’em out. But fret not, we are here with a style guide for this season of showers!

CHECK HEELS, CHOOSE WEDGES

Worried about the pedicure treatment getting messed? Don’t worry, wedges are here to save your feet and give breathing room. With wedges, you don’t have to compromise the fashion statement, but make one for yourself! You can also go for rubber footwear, jelly shoes, crocs, and colourful flip-flops to add a blingy touch.

BANISH CHUNKY ACCESSORIES

Experienced your neckpiece being stuck during the rains? I’m sure, you have thousand instances to narrate. Pack up the accessories and put them in your tote – instead go for minimal and plastic-coated trinkets.

GET FIBRE RIGHT

We all love to feel cozy and warm when it rains and inadvertently go for thick clothes. But sorry, young lady, you need to reconsider your choice of fibre. Do some ‘mul’ shopping this weekend. It is a soft cotton muslin that lets it dry faster than other materials.

PRIORITISING PALAZZO

Put away your cigarette pants and jeans and look trendy and chic with palazzo pants. A body suit with a flowing palazzo altogether creates a fresh outlook.

OIL YOUR FACE UP

Chapped skin is inevitable when it rains and face oils is a must-have in your vanity purse. Glow this monsoon with the face oils and add a tinge of hues like chrome or yellow grass green beneath the eye-liner.

HAIR CARE

Protect your crown by covering the head with a stole to avoid frizzy hair. Tie ’em up in a neat pony or bun. Oil your scalp weekly twice to keep your hair healthy.
