How To Look Good In The Rains
With muck and knee deep water all around, and the added humidity and frequent downpours, trying to keep yourself dry and clean is surely on top of your priority. But that doesn’t mean that you have to settle for less than flattering looks. With the arsenal of tips given below, you’ll be able to wow everyone and turn heads.
How To Dress For Office?
When dressing up for office try wearing fitted trousers or skinny jeans with a nice shirt. Accessorize with a nice slim belt in coral or any other bright accent or maybe just a gold chain link waist-belt and a elegant scarf. A nice trench coat (leather preferably) in black or dark grey or ebony and knee high rainboots (with kitten heels) complete the look. A hood attached trench coat makes more sense as it will help keep your hair dry.You will also look good in shirts with pencil skirts and black leggings. In that case you can wear transparent knee high or ankle high rain boots to notch up your style quotient.
Instead of a trench coat you can try wearing a leather poncho or a vinyl one in cobalt blue or gray along with black fitted pants. If you have to wear formal shoes at work, keep a pair at your desk and change into them once you reach office.If wearing saris or churidar kameezes try and wear chiffon or synthetic ones which will dry easily and are easier to wash dirt from too. Do not dare to wear white ones unless you are doing a bollywood number!
Do carry a nice bag with an outer plastic finish to keep all your essentials dry (you wouldn’t want your cell to get wet and conk out). Also keep a small towel in your handbag as it will come handy quite frequently. Carry a sturdy umbrella in nice checks or solid colors or chic prints to keep you from getting wet. Do not go for cartoonish prints for office, it just makes you look childish and will not look good in office.
For a final touch keep expensive jewellery and leather and metallic band watches at home (unless you never step out of your car) and try and wear watches with a ceramic band or even the latest trend of watches with a plastic strap (toywatch co. or swatch). You will look good with costume jewellery like hoops or danglers or a choker which will spruce up your entire look.
Keep your hairstyle simple as the humidity will anyways destroy elaborate hairdos. Try buns or tight braids (try hair braided to one side for variety) or pony tails and spritz a mixture of hairspray and serum to avoid moisture from seeping in. You can wear headband or hairpins to keep stray strands in place.
If you unexpectedly get caught in a shower and your hair has gone for a toss, don’t fret. Untie your hair. Partially dry them with a hairdryer or towel (don’t rub too much to avoid frizz) and leave them loose to form luscious waves. As for make-up you will look good with as little as possible. Try water proof formulations especially when it comes to mascara, foundation and eyeliners. Stick to creamy blushers and eye-shadows and lipsticks and stay miles away from lip gloss. Wearing perfumes is tricky as humidity increases the strength of perfumes. So wear it lightly.

For non formal occasions dressing up for the rains is a breeze as the number of options is vast. The number one investment for the rains are good trenchcoats or raincoats in different colors .You can try neutral colors like back, gray or chocolate for all purpose use and keep some in bright colors like yellow, or pastels or even one in a funky print or design or totally transparent. Be sure to choose one that suits both your figure and personality. If you are slim then stick to double breasted ones but if you more on the curvy side, single breasted ones will look good on you. A line silhouettes work best for most body types.
For toting your stuff around you can carry rubber or plastic material bags in bright colors or funky prints or even completely transparent if you dare. Jelly sandals or wellies are perfect for the rains and come in a myriad of options. Check out Melissa shoes range of jelly sandals and of course every store will have rainboots/willies in different colors and patterns. If you want to show off your recent nail art on your toes then transparent boots are your thing.
The market is flooded with umbrellas in different designs so choose one which suits your fancy and if you can try one which can be folded to fit inside your bag when not in use. You can try low pigtails or tight ponytails or buns kept in place with hairspray or gel. You can also try corn rows or French braids or loosely tied sideways braids. Messy buns and hair pulled into ponytails with puffed up fronts look nice.
Hair which is slightly tussled or messy looks great in the rains as it is low maintenance. So you don’t always need to completely dry out your hair and always remember to condition your hair after a wash to avoid dry frizzy hair (the rains sap away moisture and cause frizzy hair).Always carry bobby pins and hairspray and a hair band just in case an do not try hair waxes or mousse as they weigh down your hair. Regarding makeup try naturals shades for the eyes and keep makeup to a minimum. Also try cream based formulations which would not wash away in the rains. Make up remover pads come as godsend in case your makeup disfigures, so put a box in your bag.
5 Looks Which Will Set You Apart From The Rest During The Monsoons
Booty denim shorts with a white tank top, bright blue/yellow scarf and a studded vest and knee high rain boots. You can swap the vest with a trench coat if wearing slightly longer shorts. A nice printed umbrella is a must.
A bright rain jacket worn on top of a solid color dress which hits above or just at the knee and neon rain boots.
Military jackets or parkas with tees/tops and jeggings paired with a cap make for a very functional yet trendy look.
A strappy dress with leggings and a trenchcoat/raincoat and ankle length boots.
For evenings out a trenchcoat with a cocktail dress or glitter leggings with a short skirt and a nice top look good. Pair with boots with kitten heels (make sure that the sole is anti-slippery)
Like a true style diva you are now ready to romance the rains!
