You probably already know that once monsoon season comes, the most basic fashion rules are 'no suede', 'no white', and 'bring a jacket'; however, you may still be guilty of a few blunders that can make you a great deal uncomfortable when you're stuck in a sudden downpour. Mind these no-nos and make sure to always be smart about your clothing and footwear choices:


Mistake #1: Wearing socks

Unless you're sporting reliable pair of water-resistant boots, we suggest you pick out some airy sandals or simply not put on a pair of socks, because once it starts pouring, a single misstep can cause your feet to be uncomfortably drenched. Just make sure to always bring wet tissue and alcohol to clean your toes and soles after trudging through puddles! 

Mistake #2: Opting for canvas or cloth shoes

Of course, we don't advise crowning your leather shoes as a go-to during wet season (water stains are real!)—still, remember that you'll be better off than in canvas or cloth, both of which can and will get instantly soaked and stained. Rubber boots are naturally your best buddy, but if you have no other options, leather is bound to hold up well enough should a puddle block your way. Don't forget about proper aftercare!

Mistake #3: Wearing pants or long skirts

Your mindset probably goes something like this: "I should cover my legs to protect them from the rain." Wrong! Bare legs are way easier to deal with than those sopping jeans. Skin is skin, after all, and anything cloth will take positively forever to dry.
