The best of fashion trends for monsoon

If there's one thing that we know about monsoon, it's that it's gloomy and often threatens to take the fun out of our fashion games. We are talking rich hues, fresh prints, short numbers, light fabrics and just the right amount of layering to give monsoon a fashionable spin. Play with proportions, avant-garde pieces, and finish off your look with a light dewy makeup. Get your wardrobe ready for the shabby months with one, or
all, of these trends. CT brings you the trends that are so hot right now. Grungy monsoon's got nothing on us!

Nothing spells femininity like a bell-sleeved dress and we are crushing on this one! Give sexy, form-fitting dresses a break and embrace decidedly loose and languid flowing silhouettes. In monsoon, a roomy chiffon dress is functional and oh-so-chic. The transluscent, sheer fabric lends the dress a sexy, though not in-the-face allure.

Capes are so in right now. Whoever said you can't rock one during the warmer months? Take our cue: pick a bright colour and pair it with frayed denim shorts and you are good to go. In between drizzles, the sun will have its moments and that's when you slip into bright and happy hues. Case in point: A sling bag, sleek ankle-strap sandals and oversized sunnies ensure the overall effect is pulled together.

Monsoon certainly calls for fun pieces with shorter hemlines. And the new season wardrobe is incomplete without a set of crop top and high-waist pencil skirt. For an impromptu date, opt for a well pulled-togetherensemble like this. The surprisingly bare midriff takes the outfit from cutesy to flirty effortlessly. Also, metallic sandals are everything this season!

Maxis in lighter fabrics like chiffon pull off that rare feat of being both more stylish and more comfortable than any other piece of clothing. Usher in a sense of carefree ease by pairing flowing maxis with shorts. Effortless, understated with a bit of an edge. If there's a definitive trend towards showing off legs, it has to be this. Play up the I-just-threw-this-on vibe by slipping into flats instead of sky-high heels.

Okay, the verdict is out. A bright, floral-print dress might be the best piece of clothing for the transitional season. Keep the solid colours away and say hello to pretty prints that demand attention. Our model looks fresh as a daisy in a short number that is sure to drive all your monsoon blues away. The zip front gives the floral print a grunged edge. What's not to love?

Cotton, rayon, silk... it's time you got serious about fabrics. Don't get hung up on the worn-to-death ones — get riskier and see what you can get away with! Spruce up your wardrobe with something not many will attempt at — an organza shrug that's just next level styling for the plain-jane shorts and tank. The shrug
is a statement in itself, so keep heavy accessories at bay.

Dress According To Your Body Shape

Shopping is such a wild ride. You see that pretty dress on the mannequin, instantly fall in love, dig out your size from the rack, rush to the fitting room and slip into your prize, feeling like the princess that you were meant to be.
