As you will soon kickstart your campus life during the monsoon, we at HT City are ready with a checklist so that you are well prepared for the rainy season. So wipe out all apprehensions, step out and enjoy the showers.

Footwear:
With streets full of potholes and muddy puddles, the right kind of footwear is an essential item. Avoid leather and canvas shoes. You could go for crocs, sandals, strappy shoes, gum boots, sneakers and flip flops in different colours instead.

Clothes:
Stick to bright-coloured cotton fabrics as they take less time to to dry up. Avoid denims as they get heavy when wet and take a lot of time to dry up. Experiment and make a fashion statement with shorts, skirts, dungarees and three-fourths.

Make-up:
Keep it natural and simple. Apply as little make-up as possible, as there are high chances of your make-up getting absolutely ruined and washed out.

Rain gear:
Flaunt your bright,cheerful raincoats and stylish umbrellas. Raincoats with belts are
a good idea to go trendy this monsoon. You could also check out transparent ones that
help flaunt your clothes and yet keep you dry.

Bags and cell phone covers:
Go for bags in waterproof material to avoid your belongings from being soaked in water. Transparent plastic bags are a good way to protect your stuff and also make a style statement. An essential item is waterproof mobile covers. You could also use small zip packets to keep your phones from being damaged in the rain.

Hygiene:
Stay clear of all dirt and humidity affecting your skin. Keep a face wash and a hand sanitiser handy at all times. Also, keep a small hand towel to wipe off the rain water to avoid any infection.
