Five Must-haves In Your Wardrobe For The Rainy Season
The thing about monsoons is that different men react to it differently. While some would want nothing more than to snuggle under a cozy blanket, others would want to look dapper even when it’s pouring outside. If you belong to this second group and fashion is your religion, you have come to the right place.
Styling yourself during the monsoons is not the same as doing it during the summers or winters. You will have to consider protecting yourself and put your best fashion foot forward at the same time.
Here are the five things you’ll need to be fashionable during the monsoon
1. A hooded rainwear
Let’s start with something that you absolutely need to brave the rains this monsoon: a raincoat. Of course, you don’t have to visit the supermarket right away and get one of those ostentatious coats. A gentleman needs a proper jacket that comes with a hood to serve the twin purpose of style and protection. Experiment with colors and patterns or stick to basic black: the choice is yours!
2. Waterproof bags
It might be pouring outside, but you can’t step home without your bag, right? So, find a backpack or a cross-body sling bag that will not be affected by water. There are plenty of designs to select that will make you appear dapper, while carrying all your important documents. A fashionable bag that looks modern, but eccentric can complete your look of the day.
A hairband is a lifesaver for guys with long hair, especially during the monsoon when your lustrous locks tend to get frizzy. Why would you risk letting it loose in the rain? It is better to keep a few hair bands handy for this reason. Besides, a man bun looks cooler than frizzy hair. Look at those Instagram models for inspiration!
Whenever you think of shoes for monsoons, your mind probably goes straight to crocs. Though crocs are a great idea for the rains and can even look good if you style it right, they are not suitable for all kinds of daily activities. For instance, you need quality running shoes for that early morning jog or even to take a walk along the drenched sidewalk.
One of the surest ways to make your outfit-of-the-day stand out is by completing the look with a stylish watch. But remember that waterproof watches are your only option during the rains. The good news is that a watch aficionado will find plenty of options in the market in this category. Look for a watch that goes with most of your outfits because it will be easier to get ready in the morning this way.
And that’s it! Your checklist for the must-have accessories for the monsoon season is ready. It is time now to go shopping and add a few new pieces to prepare your wardrobe for the rains. As the downpour starts, let it rain fashion from your side.
