With the weather slowly changing and the monsoon season going to come in, it is time switch up our shorts for trousers or leggings, cami tops for half-sleeved or full-sleeved varieties and when that isn’t enough, now’s the time we pull out our lighter cardigans, sweaters and jackets. So here are some monsoon trends that your wardrobe needs more of…
Layering for women
The best part of this season is the monsoon fashion you will want to get your hands on. From casual looks to layers for formal wear, there are plenty of monsoon styles this year for women.
Get started with Van Heusen’s woven casual jacket in a Rust Red that will make a Black monochrome outfit pop. The zipper detail down the front means you keep warm when the cooler evenings come around. Another perfect fit that your casual wardrobe can’t do without is a denim jacket – a fashion perennial! The mid-washed distressed denim jacket in a pure White colour from Ginger is a chic and casual layer to add to your looks. The button-down front and frayed hems add to its denim appeal.
For anything formal or semi-formal, Ginger’s Tan Brown waterfall shrug with fringed detailing and three-quarter sleeves is a good choice. The flowing fabric in this neutral hue makes it easy to pair with many outfits. Same goes for the waterfall shrug from Code in Black. This one with textured fabric with insert pockets and full sleeves. Pair these with blouses and pants combinations or a body-hugging dress.
Monsoon trends are incomplete without a mention of athleisure for your workouts or casual evening out. Kappa by Lifestyle has you covered with this. Try the hooded sports jacket in a subtle Pink colour for a sporty vibe. Match it with joggers or leggings and a sports bra.
Layering for men
Stock up on your monsoon essentials with jackets and hoodies for men. Before the really cold days set in, all you will need is a stylish sweatshirt like the Rust Orange one from Fame Forever. The ribbed hemlines and crew neckline makes it a comfortable and ready-to-wear piece to go with your denims or chinos. Another pick your denims will love is Denimize’s hooded sweatshirt in Red tailored to be warm with no compromise on style. This hooded sweatshirt is a great option for your athleisure looks as well, just like Kappa’s Olive Green zip-up sweatshirt with insert pockets – pair them with joggers and a t-shirt.
Add a dash of style to your casual wear with a quirky tie-dye print jacket from Forca. The white fabric splashed with Blue, Pink and Yellow prints give this denim jacket a unique touch that will grab attention anywhere you go. A versatile jacket to complete your monsoon trends for the season is the solid Grey casual jacket that can be paired with a t-shirt and denims or be spruced up by topping it over a Polo t-shirt and pair of trousers.
