Every girl heading for their first day in college is prepared better than they were for any of their exams. With a stocked up wardrobe of decked up fashion, you’re ready for the fashion runway ahead. But before you begin your walk, we need to remind you of a roadblock ahead. Yes, the monsoons! A few days of smart fashion is required before you can let it free.

Monsoon proof your fashion with these basic rules:

1. Keep ’em short or dark & long

Expert Advice: Short outfits give you the liberty to manoeuvre through puddles without getting wet, but if you prefer covering up your legs then go for waterproof fabrics and dark colours that will help you hide stains and marks from the rain.

2. Twist and tie them tresses

Expert Advice: Monsoons mean cool breeze but the breeze has a lot of moisture too. The high humidity damages your hair and makes it look frizzy and messy. It’s best to avoid keeping them open in this weather and tie them up in interesting ways.

3. Let them breathe or rubber cover

Expert Advice: Soaking up dirty water in your shoes is not a smart move for monsoons, neither is ruining your beautiful pairs of heels. You should pick trendy flip-flops for ease or get complete protection with fashionable gum boots.

4. Ditch your leather

Expert Advice: Don’t ruin the leather bags that you saved up for months to buy. Instead, carry fashionable nylon handbags and backpacks that come in many colours and prints. It’s the most water resistant fabric to keep your things safe from the rain.

5. Rain down but no run down of makeup

Expert Advice: Your liner and kajal dripping down your face or your foundation coming off with every wipe! Definitely not a pleasant sight. If you can’t skip your makeup routine then make sure you stock up water resistant products.
