With the onset of monsoon, a change of wardrobe is an absolute must to keep sloppy outfits and squeaky shoes at a distance. Don't let the damp weather weigh down your style game. Here’s how you can counter the dull weather in style.
1. Pick Shirts With Bright And Exotic Prints
While a majority of people enjoy the rain, this season can also get a bit gloomy for some. It might be time to spice things up! Ditch the white and pastel shirts this monsoon and switch to bright coloured shirts that will make for an attractive formal wear. Adorn exotic printed casual shirts in pure cotton fabric for a fun, casual day out with friends.
2. Keep It Light With The Right Fabric
Thumb rule to stylish dressing in this rainy season is to invest in clothes made of light-weight fabric as they dry easily and keep you sweat-free for long hours. Opt for cotton and polyester fabric and avoid linen and knits as they cling to the body.
3. Stylish Umbrellas To Navigate The Rain In Style
Whether you’re making your way to work or for an evening out, owning a reliable umbrella is basically a necessity in the monsoon season. Showers can bless god’s green earth out of nowhere, so having a handy yet stylish umbrella is a must. You’re going to have to pair your umbrella with many outfits, so make sure it’s a versatile colour and shape that will integrate seamlessly with your manhood.
4. Sunglasses To Jazz Up Your Look
‘My future looks so bright I got to wear shades’ – if this is the song on your lips this monsoon then it’s time to rock and roll by wearing the right shades. The summer rains call for the right pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes from the harsh UV rays and will also make you look stylish and smart. Don't go for black coloured shades. Instead, make shades in blue and silver your choice to enlighten your mood in this dull weather.
5. Bracelets: Any Attire Is Incomplete Without Add-Ons
Monsoon is all about fun so why not try accessories with your attire to match your mood and amazing weather? If you haven't worn bracelets before, it’s time to start now. Men's bracelets have been among the top accessories for a while now and they'll continue to rule. Your personal style has an impact on what types of bracelets suit you the best. Whether you're into classic clothes or street style or anything in between, there is a perfect bracelet out there for you. Wear your bracelet this season with a summer check shirt, a classy cotton fabric Nehru jacket or a trendy waistcoat. You are bound to stand out!
With these stylish options, you are sure to take your fashion game up a notch this monsoon!
