Smart girls don’t dress sloppy in monsoon. They know that their denims rolled up to their calves and dowdy T-shirt only make monsoon blues worse.

While it’s true that monsoon is the trickiest season to date fashion (you hate those mud marks on your stellar dress, your adventurous eye makeup declares mutiny in the rain, you dread seeing your stilettos lacquered with sludge), there exist clever ways to establish your style prowess even when its drizzling.

Our lives have become easier with fashion becoming free-spirited, laidback and comfy. With fun, light-hearted clothes in lively colours, mood-lifting makeup and adventurous hairstyles, you can turn around monsoon and have as much fun you want as you go puddle-stomping. Here’s some inspo to rein in the hottest looks even as it rains.

Meshing it all up

Mesh is the new way to do sheer. Outfits with mesh panels and layering popped up on the global runways recently. Model Luna Cafieiro rocks this mesh layered jumpsuit by Karn Malhota. Teamed with a striped sequin jacket, it can go from day to night quite effortlessly with a change of accessories.

Luna teams the outfits with statement Buddha earrings from Apala by Sumit. Soft brown and peach eyeshadow, deep cherry lips and her messy, I-feel-the-breeze hair gives an ethereal touch to her look.

No, she is not headed to the gym

Athleisure has blurred the line between activewear and fashionwear. So, it’s perfectly all right to wear your leggings outside the gym. Model Rose Alisha wears her black leggings with a cropped jacket and black sneakers. Her makeup is striking yet judicious— eyes softly defined with grey smudge-proof eyeshadow, burgundy lips and a single coat of waterproof mascara. The sexy boxer braids keep her hair away from her face without making her look like the stern librarian.

Rein in the sporty luxe look

Sporty chic is a foolproof pick when you are thinking free-spirited and comfy. Model Hida Siddiqui aces the look in a chirpy red printed skirt with a matching crop top, windbreaker and sneakers from Adidas. Waterproof foundation with a hint of shimmer, copper eyeshadow and wine lips give her look a sexy twist. Her no-nonsense braided bob brings in the perfect contrast.

Scuba inspired fashion

Who says neoprene is only for those who dive deep into the sea to discover shipwrecks? The opaque, quick-drying, stain resistant fabric is having a moment in the fashion world. Model Nikita Yadav wears her sky blue Shivan & Narresh neoprene dress with gladiator sandals.

Waterproof foundation used sparingly, eyes defined with smudge-proof beige and brown shadow and deep oxblood lips finish her makeup. Fun bangs and wispy waves make her look fairytale and feminine.
