Yes, It’s raining and seriously it doesn’t mean that you can’t do fashion and look chic this season. Time to just think wisely and get your cool yet classy rainy day office look.
We all are so well aware of Mumbai rain and potholes and it’s a challenge to commute during rain. Well, yes but in spite of these potholes and overcrowded local trains one thing which never stops is the never giving up the attitude of true Mumbaikar…
Now when it comes to looks it’s little tricky but not tough to look presentable at your workplace. Just keep a few things handy and follow some of my wiggling tips for your rainy day office look
Choose the right fabric
It must be a tough decision to make, at least for me it is to decide what to wear semi-formal or strictly formal for office. Whatever you decide to need to understand the right fabric. Now, what fabric really you need to have:
This is my fav fabric as I will surely recommend it’s perfect for Mumbai monsoon as looks like silk but similar to cotton and linen. It dries quickly if you get drenched and also prevents excessive sweating in humidity.
I know, Cotton outfits need much maintenance but this is best when comes to climate when you know it can change anytime and in humid condition allows air flow, giving you a cooling effect. Yes, it takes longer time to dry but with dark shades, you can go ahead and repeat for more than once and then wash.

No to Denim/Jeans: These are thick fabric and takes longer to dry. If you get wet trust me it will be the entire day in the office you have to spend the whole day in those wet jeans. So, no to denim in monsoon.
No to salwar and patialas: Now I too love to get dressed in Indian outfit but in monsoon I usually avoid. If you really want to wear a suit, avoid salwar/patialas and switch to chudidar or leggings and I will prefer to go with dark colors.
Avoid Duppatas: Some suits really require dupatta but we can always replace it with strolls or some scarf.
Bandhani not for rains: Bandhani looks beautiful and add color to your style but avoid in monsoon as the color really bleeds in rain.
No long skirts and trousers: Well yes formal look is important but we can go with a pencil skirt / A-line skirt or capris trousers which are trending too.
Big No stylish footwear: You can flaunt in stylish footwear like block heels, pencil heels, strapped shoes, ankle straps in other seasons. In monsoon always go for some comfortable and rainy footwear.
Avoid heavy accessories: Rainy season is not for heavy accessories like rubber bags and funky belts. Keep it minimal and simple with Jute or cloth bag, add style with waterproof watches.
