Monsoon Season: Fashion Tips for Men

Although there seems to be an endless array of fashion-guides out there, not many of them appear to cater for the style-savvy man of today. When compiling these top 10 fashion tips for monsoon season, we’ve combined the three things fashionable men care about at this time of year: aesthetics, practicality, and comfort – but don’t worry, we don’t believe that you should have to compromise on any one of these to look good this season.

Lightweight Fabrics

Lightweight fabrics, such as polyester, or natural fibres, like cotton, are both ideal for monsoon weather because they’re extra-breathable, keeping your skin cool. This is great when it comes to doing your laundry, as you won’t have to wait as long for them to dry.
With the torrential downpours and mud splatters that are virtually impossible to avoid during monsoon season, we recommend avoiding white garments wherever possible. If wearing a light shirt for work, cover up with a thin cotton V-neck sweater, or a cagoule if the temperature is too oppressive. To avoid colour seepage, add a colour protecting detergent to your washing machine when it’s laundry time.

For those who cannot face the idea of going without jeans for months on end, stretch denim could be the answer. Spandex is added to the denim, making it dry quickly without losing durability.

Avoid delicate fabrics like wool as much as you can – if your clothes do succumb to a heavy downpour, you may need a little more savvy than you’re used to, just to get your garment clean again without causing damage.

If you do have an issue, luckily there is a wealth of information about cleaning different fabrics and removing stains online. Check out an official resource, like a laundry brand website, for reliable tips.

Day-to-day

This season has seen a huge retro 80s revival, with vivid blues, greens and yellows all back with a vengeance. Mix things up by adding rustic, earthy tones to stand out from the crowd, and above all, keep it simple.

Tops

Despite the slight lull in temperature, brightly coloured t-shirts are the perfect complement to monsoon weather. Go for a tailored fit for a smarter look, or stick with classic off-the-peg examples to stay cool.

Bottoms

Especially brave fashon addicts can embrace the trend for classic 70s-style shorts paired with a polo shirt. Those who prefer to keep covered up can take a less extreme approach with turned-up trousers, which benefit from not trailing through the mud like their long-legged counterparts.

Jackets

Windcheaters and waterproof jackets are a necessity in monsoon season, but the choice of modern styles out there means that you don’t have to sacrifice style. Breathable fabrics such as Gore-
Tex are ideal for the warm, muggy weather and are sure to keep you dry on the way to work, and comfortable whatever the temperature.

Footwear

Unless it’s been properly sealed, leather isn’t the most water-resistant fabric and (generally speaking) should be avoided. Sneakers are a great option – make sure they’re machine-washable – while flip-flops provide the ultimate breathability for your feet, but lack the sturdy construction of other designs. With style considerations taken care of, check that your shoe of choice has a thick sole to handle any wet terrain you are likely to encounter.

Three Essentials

If you haven’t already got them, here are three must-haves for the monsoon months:

- A fold-up umbrella

Practical and portable, fold-up umbrellas come in every style under sun, and can be easily stored in a bag. Opt for a bamboo-handled example for a classic, gentlemanly look, or a translucent PVC number to go with your waterproofs.

- A waterproof messenger bag

Perhaps the ultimate accessory in any season, the messenger bag is a shoulder staple for men across the world. Use it to easily and safely store electronic devices like tablets and work documents.

- Scarf

No longer the preserve of female fashion, scarves go with almost anything. A checked scarf can make an edgy counterpoint to a striped t-shirt, and your neck will also appreciate being protected from those monsoon winds!

Why Good Clothing is Important for Men in Professional World

You are always going to be treated the way you leave your first impression on someone. Said by many experienced and is also true in its context. However, it’s your clothes that add a lot to your first impression; a man is judged by his clothes and its first impression lasts way too long. It may be possible that your office may have a business-professional dress code; even if it doesn’t have one you should be dressed up to it. From top businessmen to employees every professional always wears a professional outfit; and those who don’t become a laughing stock.



Here are some tips for men on how to dress professionally:

1. Always wear a well ironed outfit. A tailored suit is a must for both men and women and adds really good charm if you carry it well.

2. Opt for darker colors especially navy blue and woolen grays; avoid pastel colors such as yellow and orange, green is a strict no-no for men in professional environment.

3. Always dress upwards i.e. from shoe to collar. Match your colors properly; for example don’t wear white socks on black shoes.

4. Groom both your bottoms and tops - as important are the shoes as are the hairs. Cut your hair properly and carry a decent hairstyle; facial hair should be taken proper care.

5. Use mild cologne; your cologne should not give others a kick in the head. Don’t hesitate in spending extra money on cologne; they are a part of your outfit.

6. Be hygienic; take a shower, cut your nails properly and carry a neat handkerchief. Sprinkle few sprays of cologne on the handkerchief too.

Given, above is just a small list of professional clothing, else it’s a very wide thing. Just stick to the basics, don’t go for fashionable outfits, they are a strict no-no. Don’t mix fashion with style; wearing a three piece tailored suite is style, whereas wearing a t-shirt under a coat is fashion.

Importance of professional clothing:

It can be really harmful to you when your client enters your office dressed in a suit and you’re greeting him in casuals; it shows incompetency and immaturity. Your dressing shows your professionalism and your seriousness towards work. A hygienic and aromatic person has a good impression on others viz. an untidy person.
A man should dress like a man and not like a boy; makes a big difference professionally.
However the difference is not much and a very thin line can be drawn when it comes to calling a dressing manly or boyish. Choice of colors is a big thing and so chooses your colors wisely. The bright pastel colors make you look pretty immature. The more mature you present yourself the better impression you impose in front of others.

Whenever somebody first meets you, they analyze you from top to bottom; any glitch in your clothing noticed by them can make you feel nervous. Try to dress as complete as possible; don’t leave any possibilities of blanks. Carry proper matching accessories too. You can’t carry sports watch with a suit; it should be a complete professional bracelet watch. It shows that you are a time bound person. Follow professional dressing rules and create good impression and persona.
