As seasons change, so do the trends. Every fashionista worth her salt knows that following them blindly is a credit card max-out waiting to happen, hence it important to know which trends to invest in.
There are trends and then there are staples. Finding the right balance is key. Investing in quality classics, and dabbling with a seasonal trend or two is the way to go, this will help you build a monsoon wardrobe that will last you for years without looking too dated.
THE CLASSIC WHITE SHIRT + SHEER RAINCOAT
White and monsoon don’t really go hand in hand, do they? But, as when thrown together – patterned or clear raincoat + crisp white shirt, they do! Oversized, deconstructed shirts are all the rage this season. You can wear it as a dress or pair it with your favourite shorts, just remember to throw over a stunning raincoat, and you’re all set to face the showers in style.
A TRENCH RAINCOAT
A trench-raincoat in bright-coloured vinyl is a sound investment, which won’t go out of style anytime soon. It’s versatile, provides good enough protection against heaviest of rains and polishes off any outfit! Looking like a million bucks does not get easier than this!
Gumboots are all-time favourites and continue to reign. Candy colours and neons are in! They add a pop of energy to otherwise gloomy days. A seasonal trend to dabble with is PVC footwear. These sleek, see-through gems are a good bet to upgrade your style to 2019!
This semi-see through gear is big this season! We love the pastel palette they come in! They give off a chic-casual vibe. It’s also a great way to show off your outfit, without the ‘wearing-a-plastic-bag-feel’ of a clear PVC coat.
This year, the umbrellas are taking a step away from the spotlight. This year it’s all about subdued shades. Clear, with a thick coloured-border, neutrals and 100% PVC are popular choices!
There you have it, a mix of classics and seasonal trends to liven-up your rainy days.
