Putting together your monsoon wardrobe is not that easy. Your summer staples must move out to make room for pure cottons, muls and nylons. Here’s a quick guide to fabrics you need to get friendly with this season…

monsoon friendly fabrics lightweight 430x550

With the impending mud and slush it’s better to opt for lightweight fabrics like pure cotton or silk or cotton blend. Fabrics like muls, light denims, nylons and chiffons dry quickly as well as make for dressier monsoon options.

These materials are best suited for blouses and shirts in order for you to stay dry and comfortable through the day.

Your other choice could be Gabardine and khadi since they remain unaffected by the monsoon and tend to stay fresh and ironed.

Fabrics like these are best suited for your bottoms since they don’t stick to your body when wet and dry up very quickly.

What to avoid
Avoid fabrics like knit and linen as they tend to shrink, get crushed and do not dry easily.
