Fashion Tip #1 Add Bright Colors to Your Wardrobe to Beat Monsoon Blues
Rains and cloud cover can sometimes leave you feeling a little low. Bright colors like hot pink, turquoise, orange, and yellow helps to brighten up and lift your mood. Transparent raincoats have always been popular. But off late neon and sequin raincoats have become popular. Pair them with bright colors.
Fashion Tip #2 Choose the Correct Fabric
Choosing the correct fabric is very important. When it rains the weather is pleasant but when the sun comes up it gets humid. Polyfabrics are a good choice for monsoon because they dry up right quick. Avoid denims, if they get wet they make your whole day uncomfortable. Denims are absolutely no no for rainy season.
Fashion Tip #3 A Thing About Layering
Layering is clever this monsoon and this can be done with soft fabrics, a transparent raincoat on top of layers or even a transparent poncho.
Fashion Tip #4 About Choosing Your Accessories
Waterproof bags, plastic bangles, and trendy printed umbrella are in vogue. Try a neon raincoat with a shift dress underneath, a transparent waterproof band and a pair of knee high wellis.
