My earliest memory of dressing up in the rain takes me back to my days in school. Sticky long raincoats covering schoolbags that were hardly fashion statements, and let’s not even bring up the big, muddy rain boots that every child owned. Nobody really worries about looking good when the main priority is keeping dry and playing a real-life version of a video game with potholes. But now, brands have started offering styles that are both rain-friendly and attractive. Check out these must-haves that will help you survive the season while you look fabulous.

Cagoule by The North Face X Gucci


It’s worth investing in a good-quality jacket that can protect you from rain. This bright nylon cagoule from The North Face X Gucci is the only piece of clothing you’ll ever need to stand out on the street on a rainy day. You can style them with a pair of black boots and shorts.

Sandals by Birkenstock


On a wet day, would anyone want to stroll around wearing soggy socks and sneakers? In our opinion, no. Sandals, one of the most useful monsoon necessities, will come to your rescue at that point. You won’t regret choosing these lightweight, waterproof sandals that come in a variety of colours.

Linen Shirt by Anavila


Choose lightweight and breathable fabrics that can be layered to adapt to changing weather conditions. Anavila’s versatile linen shirt can be layered over your outfits or worn on its own to add a dash of style to your outfit.

Umbrella by Moschino

A monsoon essentials list cannot be complete without an umbrella. A sturdy black one would be great and might do the job, but why should you stop yourself from choosing a vintage newspaper print one?

Cropped Pants by Refash


Instead of long pants that might drag in puddles or get soaked easily, opt for comfortable capris or cropped pants. These breezy pants by Refash make sure you are comfortable and look fabulous.

Poncho by H&M


It’s time to retire our antiquated raincoats and pick up H&M’s unisex rain ponchos. This one size fits all item will unquestionably protect your OOTDs with its dropped shoulders, long sleeves, and covered elastic cuffs.

Hat by Jacquemus


Spice up your monsoon outfits with hats like this one by Jacquemus. They can protect your hair from getting wet and shield your face from raindrops while adding a stylish element to your look. Opt for water-proof materials like polyester or waxed cotton.

Remember, the key is to prioritize comfort and practicality while maintaining your style when building your monsoon wardrobe. With these essentials, you’ll be both fashionable and prepared for the rainy season.
