As the mango season makes way for the monsoons, it’s time to cozy up with new wardrobe choices, a warm cup of tea and fritters. Though the weather is romanticized in movies, the sweet smell of wet soil also brings in humidity and the fishy smell of damp clothes. The weather can make you feel gloomy and lethargic, eating away at our productivity. But not all is lost. With a few simple hacks, make this monsoon season as bright as your smile.
1. Time to Flaunt Your Easy-Dry Fabrics
We cannot stop rain from dampening our clothes, but we surely can use fabric that dries faster. Apparel made from material such as crepe silk, bamboo fiber, or cotton polyester blends are good options for a rainy evening outing. Even if you catch some rain, your clothes will dry faster and won’t wrinkle. Don’t forget your tiny tots, as they can catch a cold easily in this season.
2. Don a Glam look with Waterproof Accessories
The right accessories can uplift your look and mood. With the humidity around, choose your accessories carefully. Avoid metal jewellery, as they can get easily catch a rust by moisture and humidity and you can for plastic ones instead. They are lightweight, will dry up easily and bring a pop of colour to your outfit. Pay close attention to the kind of bag or wallet you use to carry cash, cards and other important items. Make sure that it is waterproof as well. Avoid leather items as rain affects them too.
3. Celebrate the Downpour with Friends and Chic Ceramics
Having people over for chai pakora can help brighten your mood. Bring out the ceramic platters and serve ware for food instead of using the wooden ones. They will take forever to dry as the climate is already humid. The ceramics are beautiful and food served on the bright coloured dishes will certainly make you feel happy.
4. Let Romance Linger in the Rains with Scented Candles and Essential Oils
One thing that overpowers the beauty of rain is the damp smell that comes afterwards. Use essential oils with a diffuser or scented candles to make your home smell as fresh and romantic as ever. With the variety of scents, you can choose the ones that make you feel relaxed. Rose Essential Oil can relieve stress, and relaxes the body and mind.
