Show off the skin! Even if India’s tropical heat makes you sweat all through the year, you cannot risk exposing your skin to that heat. But rains are a good excuse to bring out those halter necks and short skirts.
Work wardrobe is limited. Most people will keep it conservative with mostly trousers-shirts combo. But rains can be a good reason to add a little colour. Give others a reason to gossip during the coffee break. Flirty knee length skirt with open-toed sandals with just the right shade of nail colour and an anklet can do just that!
Or if you are the non-fussy types, capris are good, and the good news for you is, now they come with a touch of glamour too.
Cover up: No we are not contradicting ourselves, by all means wear the halter necks, but just don’t forget to hold a cute umbrella to cover your head. If you haven’t noticed, umbrellas have become a great fashion accessory. They come in different shapes and colours.
And if you think umbrellas are quite a handful there are just as many raincoats to keep you in the trendy league.
Wear some chunky-funky jewellary. Bracelets, chandelier earrings or just a neat neck piece ithat complements a great outfit is all you need.
Give some fresh air to your skin dump the make-up. Make-up will definitely be ruined in this weather. Even with a little make-up, the humidity will make your skin feel cakey. Go for the kohl if you must. Follow at least the cleanser-moisturiser routine, dab loads of vaseline on the lips and smell great with a good perfume and you should be set.
But for all these things to work, do not forget that one great accessory, your smile. Smile when it rains!
