It’s the sea­son when the heavens are smil­ing down upon us and giv­ing us an ea­gerly awaited respite from the op­pres­sive heat and hu­mid­ity.while most peo­ple re­joice, some of our very own fash­ion­istas may won­der- what to wear, es­pe­cially when it comes to footwear and ac­ces­sories. The com­ing of rains does not mean wrap­ping one­self in a raincoat and stop dress­ing up. Rain or no rain, one has to al­ways look fash­ion­able and stylish. Look­ing dull and drab is sim­ply not an op­tion. In fact, rainy sea­son is per­haps the time when one can have most fun with the clothes and ac­ces­sories. All one needs to do is make the right choices and one can still make heads turn.

It is a time to bring out your shorts, skirts and a pair of stylish gum boots. An­kle length or knee length,they come in a wide range of col­ors and since they are made of rub­ber they are easy to wash and main­tain.

We are lucky that a pair of sneak­ers are con­sid­ered high fash­ion now and very cool to wear just about any­where. Gone are the days when they were rel­e­gated to sport ac­tiv­i­ties only or for walk­ing. So a pair or two of sneak­ers are es­sen­tial and easy to wear in the rainy weather.

Slip­pers and es­pe­cially funky slip­pers are also a good idea to keep for ca­sual out­ings. Crocs are also an op­tion for ca­sual wear. Since both are made of rub­ber these are a good choice.

Shoes and footwear in suede and leather etc are to be kept away till the sea­son passes as they get spoilt eas­ily.

Two very es­sen­tial ac­ces­sories are a nice fold­able um­brella in funky pat­terns and vi­brant colours, which can be car­ried any­where, and sec­ond is a smart colour­ful raincoat in a great de­sign and de­tail­ing, which looks very cool.these fit in a hand­bag eas­ily and can be worn over just about any­thing.

A vi­brant and water­proof sporty watch made of plas­tic or rub­ber, is an­other ac­ces­sory you can flaunt dur­ing this weather.

Water­proof caps are also handy and pro­tect your hair. Plas­tic or can­vas hand­bags in water­proof ma­te­rial are though trans­par­ent, but adds a nice play­ful touch to the out­fit

The rains are a gift from Gods, so we may as well look re­ally good, while en­joy­ing them.
