The season dreaded by all fashionistas has finally begun. Bollywood actresses make dancing in the rain look effortless but for us mere mortals, the monsoon means a major wardrobe change. The rain means we have to retire our precious high heels and our everyday basic white tees. But does the start of monsoon also mean the end of fashion? Of course not! Here’s 5 tips to not just survive the monsoon but glamorously conquer it.
1. Buy an umbrella
First up, the basics. Buy an umbrella and make it your constant companion. You can never predict when a downpour will start. There’s nothing more handy than having a cute little umbrella in your purse which transforms into your macho savior when the skies start to rumble.source: revelwallpapers.net
2. Jeans out, Capris in
The next tip is for bottom wear. Try to avoid any full length pants because a single puddle will ruin them. Pull out your capris, knee-length shorts or even a cute skirt and pair it with a simple tee and you’re ready to go! If you are an office-goer, try to find some ankle-length trousers or buy some culottes because no one is a fan of wet hems.
3. Say yes to traditional wear
Western wear has its perks but a traditional look works wonders in the monsoon. Dark-coloured cotton kurtis are ideal for the monsoon. Avoid chudidars or leggings and try to find vibrant patialas to pair it with instead. Even under the unfortunate circumstance of a puddle, patialas will dry quick and not stick to your skin. Also, who doesn’t like a little splash of bold color every now and then?
4. Don’t forget a footwear update!
Wet feet are unhappy feet. It’s time to push your leather and suede shoes to the far end of your closet and replace them with slip-resistant sandals and trendy rubber boots. Sandals will ensure your feet have enough breathing room. Rubber boots keep the mud out and warmth in. You can also go for crocks.source: www.aliexpress.com

With a wide range of colors, utilities and sizes, the waterproof department has got you covered this monsoon!
