Mon­soon in In­dia usu­ally starts from July and lasts till September. No doubt it is the most ro­man­tic sea­son as it makes ev­ery­thing around us look so fresh and lively but at times it gets on our nerves. Long traf­fics, muddy roads, in­con­ve­nience, drenched clothes and the thing that an­noys and bugs us the most is choos­ing the right at­tire.

Don’t worry read­ers. Here are six tips you should keep in mind dur­ing mon­soons while dress­ing up.


Avoid wear­ing light colours like whites and greys. They tend to turn trans­par­ent after you get wet and, well, who wants to make their clothes look as if they just got washed in mud?

Go for brighter hues like reds and blues. They go per­fectly well with the weather. Lift the thun­der clouds and add a hint of colour­ful ac­ces­sories.


Re­place your leather san­dals with rub­ber slip­pers , san­dals or floaters. They don’t soak wa­ter well and why in this world would you want to spoil your ex­pen­sive leather footwear in pud­dles?

Carry an um­brella or rain coat

Don’t for­get to carry an um­brella or rain coat be­fore step­ping out of your home. Match your um­brella with your at­tire to give a uni­form look. An um­brella is like a saviour dur­ing mon­soon.

Make-up and hair­style

Use min­i­mal make-up and make sure you don’t cake your face. Try us­ing wa­ter­proof and smudge-free prod­ucts as even a few drop of rain can ruin your hard work.

Your hair gets frizzy and dry, so tie it in dif­fer­ent pony­tails and buns.

In­dian wear

If you pre­fer In­dia wear then ditch your sal­wars and pa­tialas and re­place them with churi­daars. Pre­fer short kur­tis over floor-length long kur­tis. They are more easy and com­fort­able to carry. Cot­ton and polyster are per­fect for mon­soon.


Wear skirts or shorts as long trousers can get dirty your way. Skirts are easy to wear whereas jeans get mud­died due to the splash-back from pud­dles. We Am­bi­tion breaks the ties of blood, and for­gets the obli­ga­tions of grat­i­tude.
