Monsoon Special: How to look stylish with shorts
On Friday, July 25, 2014 @ 10:26 am, Category: Style Guide, 0 Comments
Summer has gone away giving way to lashing sheets of rain. But shorts are here to stay. Do away with thick jeans and cotton pants. It’s time to stick with your trusty shorts. A pair of well fitting, good looking shorts doesn’t need much styling. You can wear shorts in a variety of ways to make your monsoon as stylish as summer. Here are some ideas.
1: Tough with delicate
Wear denim cut offs with delicate textures like lace, eyelet and croquet. Create a boho look by putting on some chunky silver jewellery. If you want to go simple and quick, throw on a catchy t-shirt and you are good to go.
2: Experiment with other textures
Denim shorts never fail. However, do not ignore the variety available. There are khakhis (my favourite), wool, linen (another favourite), lace and polyester. There are plains and there are printed ones. Look for unique prints like block prints, quirky prints or embellishments like embroidery and mirror work. Add color and spirit to the grey weather.
3: Try different styles
Skorts, long shorts / Bermudas, flared shorts, balloon shorts, high waisted shorts or shorts with pleats. You can be overwhelmed with the range. Select a style that suits your body and personality. I totally vouch for long shorts. They are a bit conservative because they are longer. You can create a semi formal look by pairing them with a smart shirt and a belt. Try Wills Lifestyle or Allen Solly for these.
Spruce up your tee-and-shorts with accessories like scarves, statement necklaces and large earrings. Scarves and earrings are my favourite combo. Make a messy bun when you do this combo, will you. Moreover, a scarf will protect you from the chill that is inevitable in the rainy season.
5: Sheer tunics
Sheer tops make great monsoon wear because they dry easily and are light. Wear thigh length sheer tunics or shirts with denim shorts underneath when you are feeling glamorous. Tunics or shirts with studs or quirky prints look great. Don’t forget to add a belt if you go for a long sheer shirt.
6: Beat the cold
Team your shorts with a sweatshirt, cardigan, blazer or flannel plaid shirt to save yourself from the monsoon chill. Graphic printed sweatshirts or off shouldered cardigans are my favourite. Further, wear your shorts with leggings. They look great with tees and scarves.
7: Colourful footwear
Don’t let rain and grey clouds depress you. Add as much color as you can to your look. Go for bright rainy rubber or jelly footwear. Try neon, try fuchsia or even clear. Anything but black.
Who knew monsoon could be so much fun! Dress up and go make a splash!
