The monsoons are here. But should that stop you from flaunting your sense of style?

Each year, at about this time, we carefully pack away our expensive and best clothes to protect them from the ravages of the rain.

Yet, be it work, school or college, we all find a way to step out in style.

Usually women opt for pop-hued ensembles, sexy shorts and dainty dresses.

Colourful crocs, painted umbrellas, water resistant bags and rain-proof makeup help complete the look.

Men amp up their style with cool tees and shirts over shorts or cotton chinos and bright-coloured rain cheaters in nylon or polyester.

Full length denims are tucked away and light-weight, quick dry fabrics like cottons, cotton silk, nylon, lycra and georgette make a fashionable entry.

So, dear readers, what are you wearing this monsoon? It could a fancy umbrella, stylish boots or a simple looking, rain-proof attire.
