5 ways to enjoy monsoon and make the most of this lovely weather.

1. Monsoon friendly clothes and shoes

While monsoon is the time to enjoy, it is also the time to put those pretty whites and pastels back into the closet. Wear bright colors to cheer yourself up.

  • Choose a fabric that dries off quickly like synthetic, lycra mixed cotton, nylon, and polyester.
  • Avoid wearing skirts, Patiala salwars and palazzos. Stick to leggings or churidars. You can also pair loose fitting kurtis with pants. Shorts and crocs make the best combination for monsoons.

Wear a raincoat. It will save your clothes from getting wet and soiled.

Make sure you’re wearing monsoon friendly shoes to keep your feet safe from all the muck and mud.

  • Silicone or jelly shoes work best. They are available in a variety of designs – flat sandals, ballerinas, and even heels.
  • For most part of the year, hunter boots might be the ugliest thing you’d come across. But during monsoon we get biased towards them. Flaunt these plastic gum boots with jeans for an edgy look.

2. Flaunt pretty umbrellas

Gone are the times of those boring black umbrellas. Today umbrellas have become a fashion accessory. Whether it is a big rainbow one, or the quintessential transparent one, a pretty umbrella will break the monotony of the gloomy grey weather.

Think of rains, think of chai. The inevitable combination of chai and pakodas on a rainy day is nothing short of bliss. Munching on hot samosas or kachoris is fine once in a while.

And when talking about monsoon showers, how can we forget the evergreen roasted corn. Nothing like enjoying a long walk and gorging on that masaledar bhutta.

Don’t make monsoons a reason to eat unhealthy. Enjoy a cup of hot soup with breadsticks. Or how about some healthy and fulfilling salad to compensate all the extra calories! Being a true Dilliwala I cannot miss including momos in this list.
