Monsoon Wear For Women

Monsoon Look
Monsoon is in so it is time to take out your umbrellas and slippers and change your look to go wet in the rain. The trend this season is to enjoy the rain without harming your look. The thought to walk out of the door on the road with pressed clothes and neatly set hair is a waste this season. Once the rain starts falling on you, your clothes are all drenched and the set hair becomes free. Don't blame it on the clouds or weather rather change your style to be best equipped for monsoon.

Lets have a brief on the trend this season on women fashion:

Clothes: Keep the long and difficult to manage lengthy clothes away. These are difficult to carry as the bottoms may get wet and also give dirt stains. Take out short and easy to carry dresses from your closet for this season. Skirts till knee level for office or above knee level for a hang out at the mall is easy to wear. Capris, short pants with short sleeves or sleeveless tops are appropriate for an informal look.
Don't wear light colors especially white. Experiment with vibrant colors like neon yellow, green, indigo and pink. This will pep up the mood on a gloomy day.
Embroidered salwaar kameez or patialas are a no-no this season. Snug fit churidars or leggings teamed up with kurtis are appropriate for monsoon wear. If you wear saree, then prefer shiffon, cotton or crepe materials which dry easily.

Slippers: Waterproof slippers or shoes is a must for monsoon wear. Colorful plastic slippers (hawai-chappals) in prints or floral designs is trendy but see to it that they are not flip-flops as they will splash water on your clothes. Wear them with capris or hot pants. Sporty sandals or floaters are classic monsoon wear. Leather is not advisable but if you wear then pick up good quality ones which can survive in water. Clean them regularly to make it survive this season.
If you wear covered shoes, don't forget to wear good fresh socks to prevent bacterial infection.

Accessories: Too much of make up is a disaster for your skin and look also. It spreads on the face thus making your face look unclean. Water resistant handbags with monsoon wear like transparent bags from Puma are sexy. Nowadays, varieties of umbrellas in new designs are available in the market. Try plastic colored umbrellas with floral prints.
Avoid heavy jewelery as it is difficult to carry. Wear simple tops or small earrings instead of dangling ones. You can wear a funky anklet to flaunt your legs in shorts.

Make up: Keep light make up. Use waterproof kajal, mascara, eyeliner and foundation which can rinse off easily from the face. Highlight your eyelids with a thin line of colored eyeliner pencils. Try pastel shade blushers on your cheeks and use matte lip color or a light colored lip gloss or balm. Avoid dark colors. Keep short hair if possible and avoid straightening them. Leave it natural.

So, with these guidelines, shop for the monsoon wear and keep yourself at par with this weather change.
