Pick the right fabric to wear this season
The first step to decoding monsoon dressing is choosing the right fabric, or the post-rain humidity will kill the look. Experts suggest that one can opt for something that’s not too sheer yet is light on the skin. Follow these tips:
Cotton: Cotton is an excellent material for the humid climate as it allows air to flow in and around the skin, creating a cooling effect while keeping you dry.
Rayon: This fabric can feel like silk yet is similar to cotton and linen in its cool and airy construction. It does not trap body heat and absorbs moisture easily.
Chambray: This is a great choice for monsoon because it breathes beautifully. It is light, summery and doesn’t stick to the body.
Denim: Denim is the perfect material for every season and if you want to wear it right this monsoon, there’s nothing better than ripped denim shorts. Pick a faded pair and team it with your graphic tees. For footwear, a pair of jelly flipflops will get you rain-ready. Complete the look with a bright waterproof backpack.
Polyester: If you are up for some skin show this monsoon, stock your wardrobe with polyester crop tops. They are chic, comfy and apt for the rainy season. Instead of wearing them with clingy jeans, go for breezy cotton trousers. Put on a pair of strappy PVC sandals and you are good to go.
Crepe: To get that perfect outdoorsy look for the rainy season, a colourful crepe dress is just perfect. Combine it with a pair of rubber espadrilles and a sassy sling. You can also experiment with a nice hairdo to go with this attire, as untied hair might just get frizzy.
