Welcome to the second iteration of my style-focused series called ‘Styled Through The Season.’ Each iteration revolves around a capsule of 30 items from my wardrobe curated for the season. Of all the seasons, the monsoon is easily my favorite. With this in mind, I had a lot of fun putting together this capsule!
I feel monsoon most demands practical attire among the seasons. There are certain monsoon-specific items, sans which I couldn’t imagine the capsule. Picking these seasonal items was the starting point for putting the capsule together. The first pick was my trusty poncho from Wildcraft. It’s great for quick strolls outdoors even when it’s raining. The next two picks were gum boots (an essential with all the muck) and a jacket. Between these three, I felt practically prepared for the rains.
The next step was to pick a few items that although not specific to the monsoon season, aligned well with it nonetheless. I added a few long-sleeved items for nippy days, including a jumper, a couple of shirts, and one of my favorite graphic tees.
As I did last time, once the capsule began to take shape I tried to add diversity using color. Most of the initial picks were basics in either black, grey, or blue. So, I began adding items, including more colors.
Here’s the final list of items in my monsoon capsule for 2022:
Poncho from Wildcraft
