Summer is almost done and the monsoon season is on its way. This means that it's a good time to start looking out for some of the trendiest items that you can wear during this season. If you're looking for how to style your wardrobe better during this time of the year, we've got a few tips that can help you along the way.

The Monsoon is a season where everything is hot, humid, wet and feels gloomy. And when we talk about clothing and fabric trends for this time of the year, it's pretty difficult not to notice the monsoon fashion influences and trends. People look for ways to stay dry and comfortable. So we have listed tips to help you pick clothes that are both comfortable and stylish.

1. Lightweight:

The monsoon season is a time when it's important to stay dry and comfortable. Lightweight fabric garments are good for this humid weather, as they will keep you cool, dry and comfortable. Fabrics that should be avoided are heavy fabrics such as denim, leather, and wool as they will wear down on your body and make you feel more uncomfortable. It also becomes to wash & dry heavy weight fabrics.

Thus, it's best to wear lightweight fabrics like linen, cotton or khadi as they will remain dry even when it rains.

2. Avoid white or any light colour:

Light shades get easily stained with mud and dirt. And cleaning them can become a hassle. This is why dark-coloured clothes are more suitable for the rainy season. And with the gloomy weather, it is the perfect time to try out vibrant hues and bold prints and patterns

You can experiment with colours like purple, coral, red and green. Good options for prints are block printed fabric, screen printed fabric, Batik fabric or even Shibori Fabrics. We have a wide collection of printed fabrics in stunning shades.

3. Opt for natural fabrics:

You should also try to avoid wearing clothes that make you feel hot and sticky. Thus it is best to pick natural materials over the synthetic fabric. Synthetic fabrics are not breathable and will stick to your body adding to your discomfort even further

Natural fabrics like absorbent cotton, linen or khadi are breathable fabric. They will keep you feeling dry and fresh. Another bonus is that natural fabrics also dry easily.

4. Wear Loose Fit Clothing:

Avoid wearing anything that will make it difficult for you to move around in your home or at your work. Loose-fit clothes are a good option as they are more airy and comfortable than tight-fit or body-hugging apparel. Such loose silhouettes also allow ease of movement. Along with this, it is also a good idea to wear garments which are shorter in length or whose hem is not close to the ground. Longer garments are prone to getting muddy. Short palazzo, short Kurti or capris, shorts or a midi maxi dress are good options.

5. Layering:

Layering is a key part of monsoon fashion. Clothes layering is a good idea during the monsoon season, as the weather can change quickly and you don’t want to be caught unprepared.

Layer your lightweight clothes with other light to medium-weight ones, like a shrug or scarf or a casual shirt over a t-shirt or a dress. This will help keep you warm and dry if it does rain. You can always add or remove layers according to your comfort.

Our Jamdani scarves make for a great accessory to be layered. It is light and breezy and will keep you feeling fresh. The fabric is 100% natural and is very soft and gentle.
