Fashion dictates that we dress for the season to match and complement its own unique palette. And while the summers are uplifting to dress for in splatters of joyful colors, the monsoons can be challenging. More often than not we tend to reach for all the darker hues and reserve the bright ones for special occasions.
However, it doesn’t have to be that way at all. Wearing bold colours is known to brighten up our moods and give us a much-needed surge of energy. And well let’s be honest, we could use all the energy we can gather to beat down the gloom which monsoons bring with them.
On that note, let’s dive into an off-beat list of colour ideas and light easy fabrics for this season and how you can seamlessly add them to your wardrobe and occasions.
One can never go wrong with power colours for the workplace, to make a bold statement and create an authoritative air. Now, you can do that with a combination of clean silhouettes and strong colors balanced with just the right accessories.

Look 2: Feisty Fridays
