fashion trends, monsoon trends, rainy season tips, footwear tips for monsoon


Come monsoon season and everybody has to rake their brains as to what to put on and step out of the house. Be it clothes or footwear- everyone has to compromise in terms of dressing up not according to what looks best on them but as per the showers allow them.

Rainy season is not a good time for the fashion enthusiasts as it dampens their spirits of donning their best outfits and footwear. Footwear, especially, is taken much care of. It’s very essential as the right kind of footwear helps us to tread through those frustrating potholes and muddy puddles. Here are some apt must-have footwear’s which will help you through this dreaded season:

If you are sporting a knee-length skirt or a Capri then you can opt for flip-flops or flats provided that it is raining moderately otherwise your legs will be beautified with mud stains.

If you are planning to go traditional by wearing a saree or churidar then slip into sandals and make sure they have an ankle strap to keep them firmly fitted to your feet.

Fashion lovers can go for slip-resistant sandals with heels but of not more than 2 inches with ankle straps to walk comfortably on slippery and uneven roads. Aside from the ever-popular ballet flats, Crocs has introduced several new models that even fashion-savvy girls will love, so you don’t have to squirm every time someone looks at your feet when you’re wearing them.

Option for men could be knee- high gumboots, sport sandals.

Shoes such as sports and canvas are a strict no-no for this season as there are chances of bacterial growth due to the moisture in the climate.

Do not wear much of leather footwear as they too have the tendency of sheltering bacteria and fungus. If it is necessary to wear leather footwear during rainy season, feet should not be slipped in and out of the shoes directly, and must be opened only by the laces. Socks are a must; even if they get wet as they act as a barrier between the skin and the leather

If possible, shell out a few more bucks and buy branded footwear such as Puma, Reebok, Nike, Adidas, Liberty which will not slip from your feet and are designed to endure such harsh weathers.

Even if it brings along infuriating moments with it, rainy season, on the other hand, is also the time when you are at the peak of emotions. If taken optimistically, one can thoroughly enjoy this pleasant weather by following a few guidelines as above and celebrate monsoons without any compromises. So, wipe out all those apprehensions from your minds, step out and enjoy the showers!!
