Monsoon Friendly Fabrics That Will Save You From Unpredictable Rain
With the monsoon weather setting in quicker than you anticipated and in greater force, it’s officially time to make a few and necessary changes in your wardrobe. You need lighter, yet stronger, fabrics that will keep you safe and dry, most importantly. Your aim should be looking fly, in this unpredictable season. However, if you are new to the thunderous downpours, we’ve got a list of all the fabrics you need to shop for, asap!
- You need to load up on cotton, mul and lightweight silk fabrics. Cottons even though are guilty of getting wet, they dry up just as quickly. However, you need to be careful of not picking a light coloured cotton outfit. You need to opt for fabrics that dry quickly and also don’t still when wet. That means no more linen, despite it being your favourite for the summers.
- You can also opt for rayon since they are like silk and are pretty versatile. Opt for them in dark hues since they are apt for monsoon as they too will dry real quick.
- When picking an outfit during monsoon, keep in mind the transport you are opting for. If you like us, use the roads and metros to commute, there is always the impending threat of mud and slush being splattered on your garment. Thus pick fabrics that can resist them like pure cotton, natural fabrics, gabardine, denim and crepe silk.
- You can also opt for polyester and crepe that are perfect for the monsoons because of their airy finish. However, be mindful of body odour when you wear these. These fabrics tend to trap the sweat and make you stick. So, go hard on that deodorant.
- Cotton and silk blended fabrics are also advisable since they keep you fresh humid times, unlike most others.
Additional Points To Keep In Mind For Monsoon:
- Avoid wearing full-length dresses and trousers. Instead opt for anything that is three-fourths in length.
- Ditch those long salwar-kameez sets and opt for simple cotton kurtis that you can pair with denims or leggings.
- Opt for shrugs and chambray denim jackets to add an extra layer to your plain look.
- Choose flowy dresses or even kaftans, instead of those body cons or anything fitted.
