The monsoons have hit us sooner than expected and if the initial downpour is anything to go by, it's going to be one heckuva rainy season this year! So whether you like it or not, you're going to deal with dripping wet hair, mucky denims, and soaked-to-the-skin socks for the next few months.
Inconvenient it can be, but the monsoon also brings with it fresh roasted bhuttas, chai time with bhajias, and romantic walks with your lover in the rain - so all is definitely not lost!
The monsoon also has other side benefits in the form of unscheduled holidays from work (thanks to all the flooding that has become as predictable as the rain itself), and the huge respite from the stifling summer heat. And the biggest benefit of all, at least for me, is that you get to go shopping for some cool monsoon stuff.
Well... since the rains are here to stay, why not make the most of the wet season? Here is a list of our Top 10 Monsoon Must-Haves that will help you to breeze through the coming months and make a splash of the good kind!
Stylish Rainwear: Contrary to what most adults feel, raincoats aren't just meant for children. In fact, for complete overall protection from the rain, you can't get anything better than a raincoat. Men tend to opt for windcheaters but in a heavy downpour these will leave you soaking wet from the waist downwards, which again brings us back to the trusty raincoat. You do get transparent raincoats nowadays that are perfect for adults. Get the ones which belt at the waist and it'll look like a stylish overcoat!
