Monsoon puddles can be extremely fun, but not when you have to step out for work! Whether you like it or not they are going to be around and getting your office wear dirty is the easiest calamity during monsoon. If you follow a few easy and simple monsoon office wear tips, however, you can minimise the possibility of getting your attire dirty and stay fresh and clean for work.
Crop Leg Trousers:
These are must haves in your monsoon office wardrobe. Why? It’s fairly simple– crop leg trousers are shorter in length, they hang above your ankle, naturally making them less prone to getting wet if you encounter water-logged areas on your way. How short? You can decide how short based on your personal taste, as long as it fits within the office dress code boundaries. Ones made with Cotton Stretch Yarn made fabric are ideal, from a freedom of movement point of view.
Quarter Sleeve, Half Sleeve or Sleeveless Tops:
The same logic as the crop leg trousers, crop sleeve tops are ideal for monsoon weather simply because the lesser the fabric, the lesser the chances of it getting wet and staying wet, especially if you travel in non-ac transport. We suggest wearing fitted sleeveless, half or quarter sleeved tops made with cotton stretch yarn if cotton is your choice of fabric for office wear.
Light Fabric Applications:
Light Cotton Stretch Yarn or polycotton stretch yarn made fabric applications are easier to dry off because heavy cotton yarn made fabrics have a tendency to absorb more water. You can avoid jeans but wear jeggings or leggings. For tops, breezy collarless shirts make a great option. Also, avoid too much layering. The lighter, the better.
Since monsoon is just a hop, skip and a jump away, it’s time for all to be ready to welcome it with open arms and possibly, free legs because there will be a lot of hopping, skipping and jumping involved wherever you encounter puddles. That brings us to our next point, which clothes are the best to be hopping, skipping and jumping around, after all, you don’t want to get soaked in the event of one poorly executed hop. What better than skirts to look stylish in and still do the hoping around with safety and grace? Here are some super stylish skirt options that will get you rainy day ready…
Tulip: this is an interesting one, shaped like an upside down bulb, a tulip skirt is just right for rainy days. It’s layered in such a way that if the legs need to expand, it would open up just like a flower, providing the comfort to hop around. If the material of the skirt is a blend of bare spandex and hard yarns, it will give you just the right stretch and structure to look fabulous and be sporty whenever it’s required
Tube: tube skirts don’t facilitate free movement for jumping puddles, they are snug body-hugging movement inhibitors… false. When bare spandex is a component of it’s material, they prove to be the perfect skirts that enable hopping and give you a chic appeal. Wear one and try it. Make sure that if you’re wearing one to work, the length is appropriate.
Circle: this is a mighty cute one that will not only make your bottom appear fuller but also give you ample freedom for jumping and hopping. It’s neither snug nor loose. It’s just free flowing. It will move with your body. Just try to get one in a heavier fabric so that in case of a surprise gust of wind, you don’t have yourself an embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Since this is a free flowing skirt, the presence of bare spandex in its make wont make much of a difference, but it always helps to have a stretch in your garments, just in case you lose or put on a few kilos here and there.
Freestyle runners are either too pumped or sit with dampened spirits when monsoon arrives. They are either too excited about running, open to the possibility of a surprise refreshing rain shower in the middle of their work out, or dread getting drenched in a rain which pours heavier than their own sweat which leads to illness. While the former kind will go about their regime as is, the latter could use some motivation. We’ll provide it by telling you you can significantly reduce the chances of falling ill after a run in the rain through this one trick.
Instead of running in the rain wearing your regular cotton running wear, put on some poly spandex yarn made active wear and head out fearlessly. Why, though?
What happens when you work out in cotton gym wear?
The material of your clothes absorbs your sweat. The heat from your body and in air helps evaporate that sweat, normally, but during cool and humid monsoons the sweat gets trapped in your clothes and make them stick to your body causing you to fall sick. That’s where poly spandex yarn made active wear helps.
Polyester (Poly) fiber is known to repel water and spandex gives you desired freedom and stretch. So when you get active wear made from moisture wicking poly spandex yarn made fabric, you ensure that sweat is expelled from your body on to the surface of the fabric instead of staying on your skin. Naturally, the chances of catching a cold or falling ill due to prolonged exposure to damp clothes are reduced.
Did that lift your spirits? Run towards glory, enjoy monsoon the way it’s meant to be enjoyed!
