Monsoon is here! Being a pluviophile, it’s my favorite season. I love to hold the raindrops and feel the ecstasy. Monsoon brings happiness, the happiness of spending time with friends over coffee, the joy of getting drenched while walking through a fine, misty rain or just watching a downpour from the verandah.
Whatever the season or the occasion is, we love to dress up, or should I say, we just need no reason to look good. As for me, whenever I feel good, I want to look good and the vice-versa. So, the crux is, I love to dress up in tune with the weather and the occasion. I firmly believe, dressing is an art; it’s the perfect concoction of style, fashion (yes, the two terms are different), comfort and joy of creation.
A sensitive soul drapes not only the attire but also admires the creativity behind it.
Though monsoon is fun, but we can’t wipe out the inconveniences we have to face on Indian roads. Puddles filled with dirty water, muddy roads, and potholes make life miserable. Kolkata, being a city leery of the problem of waterlogging, often adds more to it when the rain continues for a day or two. Moreover, a heroine might be an enchantress in a wet saree, I swear no girl on earth would like to adorn such a look on a rainy day! According to me, the monsoon dress code should be something that will keep you comfortable and clean as much as possible, even if you’ve to walk down through the waterlogged streets.
The material should be something that dries up quickly (preferably, not cotton). Shorts, 3/4ths, skirts, and capris are my preferences. You can go for a maxi-dress if you like, but something well above the ankle can save you from embarrassment as nobody likes a dress repleted with mud or dirty water.
While exploring the site Limeroad.com, I couldn’t resist my inner fashionista to curate a few monsoon looks. I followed the aforesaid simple rules keeping the looks simple, minimal and trendy.
For the first one, I’ve selected the very own color of monsoon, blue, as the theme.
This one is there to lift up the mood from the shabby grayness of the weather.
