It’s almost criminal to stay indoors in this beautiful weather. Planning an outing with your buddies is almost a necessity. Amongst other things, planning an outing in the monsoon involves selecting the time, place and last but not the least, your attire. It’s important to remain dry, but also equally important to do it stylishly. Here are some casual and formal wear ideas that help you achieve exactly that.
A light jacket
In case it’s very breezy and might become slightly chilly as it does in the monsoons, carry a light cotton or linen jacket. It not only enhances the look but also keeps you comfortable.
Shorts are probably a staple for casual wear during the monsoons. Not only because they dry quickly, but also because the length makes them desirable if you get caught in a downpour. For a brunch, cotton shorts are ideal because they can be paired with a linen shirt or a polo T-shirt for a classy look.
The rains wreak havoc on leather and suede, so opt for shoes that have rubber soles with a firm grip. Rubber galoshes are a great way to cover up leather shoes without having to go for gumboots . Flip-flops are also a fun casual option if you aren’t going any place formal.
Pocket umbrellas are a great choice if you don’t like the additional weight. However, don’t dismiss the large ones as they look really smart, and add a ton of old- world charm to your monsoon look.
Trench coats have an elegant, timeless appeal and having one always helps in the monsoon. These are quite formal and so can be worn over a formal suit. It is ideal for a formal brunch or an official lunch meeting.
