After the monsoons, you can cut off the stitches and restore the original length.
Jumpsuits in bold hues and prints
The best way to fight off the monsoon blues is with bold and vibrant colors. Your bright outfits and accessories will make overshadow the dullness of monsoon weather. Jumpsuits are appropriate for the rainy seasons. Make sure you opt for tapered or narrow fit jumpsuits over wide-legged onesies.

If you are in no mood to ruin your favorite long onesies, then stepping out in a floral printed romper will assist you to turn some heads. Women with an edgy or perky personality can give floral prints a miss. For them, checked or graphic prints will be appropriate.
Recycle old clothes
Shorts and knee-length pants are must-haves for rainy days. The size not only shows off your sexy legs but saves the bottom wear from splashes of muddy water. If you don’t have shorts, then there is no need to head out on a shopping session just now. It is time for some recycling. We all have that pair of outdates jean that we cannot part with. It is the perfect time to make good use of it. Cut off the excess length and transform it into a short or hot pant. It is applicable for denims, linen or cotton trousers and leather pants. You can also decorate it with beads and buttons. Team it up with off-shoulder tops or semi-fitter casual shirts to raise your fashion quotient this monsoon.
Pick umbrellas over raincoats
Raincoats are rather convenient. Fashion lovers had a long-standing complaint that opaque raincoats mar the beauty of their trendy outfits. Gods of fashion answered their prayers with transparent raincoats. But 2018 is all about flaunting your “monsoon style” with statement umbrellas. Chinese umbrella, bubble, and artistic umbrellas are rather popular among youngsters. These are available in a variety of colors and are decorated with fine details as well. If you want to add a pop of color to the ensemble, then an umbrella will come to your rescue. Before purchasing the umbrella, make sure that it has the potential to withstand heavy showers and unruly winds.
Don’t ignore accessories!
You can prevent rainwater from damaging your clothes with an umbrella or raincoat. During monsoons, there is a high percentage of humidity in the air. This invisible water can damage your jewelry. Sound unbelievable, right?! When atmospheric moisture comes in contact with gold, silver or any metal jewelry, the trinkets oxidize easily. Humidity can rob these off their shine and color. Accessories play a pivotal part in enhancing the beauty and character of your outfit. It is best to opt for plastic or wooden accessories in the monsoons. These are available in several designs, colors, and sizes. Minimalistic accessories are better than chunky statement pieces in monsoons.
Monsoon skincare and makeup
Paying attention to outfits, shoes, and accessories is not enough. It is impossible to look beautiful if your skin looks dull. During monsoons, skin care becomes all the more important. Don’t let rain and muddy water rest on your skin and hair for long. It contains germs, which may cause skin rashes and inflammation. Take a bath every day with mild body wash. Scrub your entire body to get rid of dead skin and microscopic dirt. Don’t forget to clean your face with a face wash in the morning and at night. Well-moisturized skin always emits a healthy glow. If you are obsessed with make-up products, invest carefully in waterproof foundation, eyeliner, eyeshadows and lip tints. You never know when a sudden downpour will ruin your makeup and leave you with a ghastly look.
Trendy monsoon special hairstyles
Gone are the days when women with long tresses were considered beautiful. Hairstyle plays an essential part in enhancing your beauty. A meticulous hair parting and side-strands offer a frame to the face. Long hairstyles are perfect for spring and winter months. Summers and monsoons require shorter and trendy haircuts. If you don’t want to chop off those long locks, then smart hairstyling will shield your hair from damage in monsoons. Buns, ponytails, and braids are quintessential hairdos for the rainy season. A loose bun adds sophistication, while a side-braid or fishtail will offer an edgy yet chic look.
