Call us typical, but we really do love Mumbai in the monsoon season — with an aura of romance in the air, the idea of getting drenched in droplets sounds divine after having gone through some of the most trying summers.

But fret not, we’re here to save you from the showers with our pick of the most practical yet stylish items guaranteed to keep you dry this season.

Raincoats aren’t just for toddlers

When you’re heading to work, a raincoat or lightweight trench is a no brainer when keeping your clothes dry. Thankfully raincoats don’t look as awful as you’d imagine them to be — look for translucent styles or the plain hooded sporty kinds that will act neutral regardless of your outfit. Although, if the idea of lugging around an extra jacket sounds off-putting and you’d rather work with an umbrella, protecting your outfit is key — opt for dark colored separates just so any wet stains don’t hinder your professional meetings.

Freshen up

If your desk job requires you to show up at a lot of meetings, roomy jackets and vests in linen are of great value especially since the fabric is known for allowing more airflow and being able to dry rather quickly. Pair your smart linen jackets with a cotton shirt or cami underneath over a great pair of structured culottes. The resulting look is smart, extremely classy that leaves you feeling fresh amidst the humid and sticky weather.

Brighten-up between dark clouds

For days when you aren’t struggling on your commute to work, reach out for dressy high-waisted shorts and pair them with some striking floral blouses — with gloomy days ahead, looking bright and sprightly is always a good thing. On those lazy Sunday afternoons, opt for midi wrap dresses that aren’t too flared or roomy in case the wind decides to rain on your parade.

Don’t let the rain put a damper on accessories

Shoes are usually a common dilemma when it comes to the monsoon season and jelly shoes or rubber wellie boots aren’t a personal preference for many. Luckily there a bunch of sturdy flatform shoes available to help you prance around in the rain while avoiding those deep puddles of course! When it comes to bags, it’s advisable to store away the suede ones as they don’t exactly perform well around water. Stick to faux leather or water-resistant vinyl or nylon bags instead.
