During monsoons, dressing up for each and every party or outing in an innovative way gets really difficult for couples, especially the newlyweds. But, not toworry;there is always a way to make things right. If you are newly married or enjoying your courtship days, just enhance your style quotient this monsoon with our fashion and trend tips. Follow this style guide, and adorn a chic look with your partner wherever you go.
Monsoon is the best time to go crazy, stylish and funky with accessories. If you are planning to attend a post-wedding party, just arrive in style. Go for raincoats as they are back in vogue. Opt for pop-art prints and florescent colours. You can carry printed umbrellas as well. Instead of closed bellies, wear colourful chappals. And, for a formal occasion, wedge heel is the perfect choice. Carry a transparent bag when you are out for shopping.
During this season, newlyweds should completely avoid dark colours. While attending a reception party or a relative’s wedding, they should go for neon colours, such as pink, peach, green and blue. Sarees and suits in neon colours are a great hit this season. Florescent colours can add an extra element to the style quotient.
What to Wear
Instead of donning suits and sarees at a party, you should go for full-length skirts. Skirts with floral prints and a hint of zari border are in vogue. While, on a honeymoon, you can also wear knee-length skirts and cotton shorts in neon colours. Straight linen pants in whites, off whites and beige is another great option.
During the wedding functions and even after that, women have to adorn heavy garments. With all that gottapatti sarees and shimmering suits, it gets difficult for the newlyweds to breathe easy. So, instead of these sticky garments, they should opt for polyester. Along with it, women can go for dresses made up of soft cotton fabric. As for men, they should avoid hard fabrics like denims. Instead, they should go for cotton and linen pants, and shorts that are light and wearable.
So, if you are worried about how the monsoon is going to dampen your style from head-to-toe -- from frizzy hair to finishing off your favourite shoes -- these rainproof accessories can provide some monsoon must haves.
Raincoats and umbrellas: Keep yourself dry and stylish by picking rain essentials that extend beyond their functionality. Pick your favourite trend before you buy your monsoon gear, with the neon trend and similarly, a paisley printed umbrella is right on mark with the floral trend.
Shoes: Swap your leather shoes for more reliable ones in plastic, Perspex and patent leather. While boots are essential footwear during monsoons, don’t let it cramp your sense of style. Pick a boot that’s both utilitarian and fun. Fashion recommends the animal print rain boots or try eco-friendly lace-up shoes. For a dressier occasion, the blue court shoes do it for us.
Bags: Opt for messenger bags in patent leather and bold hues. Current trend recommends the floral appliqué bag is decent enough during monsoons. If you are heading to work and need something roomy, it is recommended that a basket bag be carried around.
Jewellery: Give in to your inner child by opting for plastic jewellery pieces and rubber watches in bright colours. An anchor bracelet for a casual look looks dazzling but you can also mix it up with beaded statement necklaces.
