New Delhi, June 17 (IANS) The monsoon is often linked to romance and this rainy season brighten up your wardrobe by adding outfits in hues of red, green, and bright purple.
“Dark colours are popular as they don’t make mud and water stains prominent. Red, green, bright purple and blue are good choice. However navy and black are good evening wear options,” suggests designer Pam Mehta.
In terms of fabrics, Mehta feels one should go for “gabardine, denim and crepe silk – they works best in monsoon as they repel water”.
There are few things that a girl should keep in mind while choosing the silhouette.
“Don’t over accessorise, girls. For a day wear, light tunics, tank tops are popular if teamed up with trousers, also one piece knee length dresses in bright prints and colours work best. Avoid white, see through and heels in monsoon. Flip flops are a good option to stay comfortable and be on the move,” said Mehta.
Like girls, boys too can keep in account few things for the season, says designer Sunil Mehra.
“The dominant colours for boys includes blue, green and indigo. It is important to use the right fabric during monsoon as there are certain fabrics which lose their sheen once wet so ideally one should go for cotton as the fabric dries up fast,” said Mehra.
