Styled Through The Seasons, Monsoon 2023


Welcome to the second monsoon iteration of my Styled Through The Seasons capsule series. Each iteration revolves around a capsule of 30 items from my wardrobe curated for the season.


As you might remember, Monsoon is my favorite season and I have been super excited about its arrival and putting the capsule together. It has also been a lot of fun to have the chance to work with a few new items with this capsule.


The new items served as the starting point for putting together the capsule. One of the new items I have been most excited to style has been a button-down shirt I added during the summer from Doodlage (one of my favorite local brands!) It was a rare spontaneous purchase because I gravitated toward the pattern and colors. Besides the shirt, I also added a basic tee from March Tee in rustic red and beige trousers from Cord (both of which will replace existing items in my wardrobe). I also picked up footwear from Vans and Toms. The Vans are meant more for daily use, while the Toms purchased with the intent of being used more sparingly and in situations where I am unlikely to run into the muck (indoors or when not walking or driving).





After the new items, the next step was to explore color options that aligned both with the new items but also with the monsoon season. I have tried to build the capsule around colors that naturally occur through the season such as green, red, blue, and beige. One color that I did stay clear of is grey. This was mainly because I feel like I have overdone it in recent times needed a break.


The last step (in contrast to the ​previous year​) was to add a few items specifically for the monsoon season, including layers to protect from the rain and wind. Besides obvious choices like the gum boots and poncho you might remember from last year, I also included a gifted jumper, a jacket from HM, and my Doodlage shacket.
