Don’t let the rains play spoilsport to your inner fashion diva
Don’t let the rains dampen the shopaholic in you. Instead, here are a few pretty things to splurge on this monsoon. Let it rain!
If you’re as traumatised by memories of the impossibly smelly raincoats from your school days as we are, you deserve a wardrobe update!
We love the simplicity and classic elegance of this double-breasted rain jacket from Zara. Its a little bit Jane Bond, and a little bit Ms. Marvel!
And if that one’s too drab for you then why not revel in this 80’s inspired printed design from ASOS?
This brightly coloured Black Stallion Jhola Bag from India Circus is the right complement for a perfect day about town.
It’s time to banish the blacks and browns when the skies are grey. Opt for these stylish retro white framed sunglasses to unleash the fashion diva in you.
Pair the white sunglasses with this funky watch from Swatch – the riot of colors in the dial are balanced by the pristine white silicone strap. And you don’t need to worry about any smudges!
It’s best to carry your favourite heels and delicate stilettos in a separate bag during the monsoons, but why restrict your footwear to the boring old floaters? Instead, try these metallic leather Arizona shoes from Clarks, that come with a waterproof rubber sole. Elegant protection for your feet!
Now that you are dressed to kill, it’s time for one last accessory. This vintage umbrella from Nappa Dori is not very practical, but who cares about functionality when there is style at stake? Twirl it around your little finger, and just get out to soak in the rains!
Enjoy your perfect cup of tea in the comfort of your terrace or balcony with the turquoise blue Elements Metal Balcony Set from Urban Ladder
And do you know what you need on the side? A mix of these delightfully kitschy Kettle planters from Poppadum Arts.
Can there be rains without Chai? For this weather may we suggest something radical, like using this soup mug for a bottomless cup of adrak chai? Believe us, it works!
