Verve Style File: Monsoon Menswear

Text by Tanisha Choudhury

Verve tells you how to keep it casual this monsoon

As menswear strays further and further away from the formal, this monsoon it’s all about keeping it casual. From psychedelic prints and surf wear to coloured jackets, they’re all fun trends to liven up gloomy monsoon days. But the biggest trend of all, one that will set women’s hearts aflutter, is short-shorts! Ubiquitous on runways and perfect to sail through Indian monsoons, Verve shows you how to work short-shorts, in both casual and formal avatars.

Get the Weekday Look

For a chic weekday look, wear formal shorts with a light, printed or embroidered shirt. Layer with a structured blazer to replicate the suits-with-shorts look seen on all the runways. To round off the look, add luxe accessories in the form of leather sandals, belt and bag. Add a little whimsy to your workday, by wearing a ceramic lapel pin by Rare Rabbit. We love the little eyewear pin in golden.

Get the Weekend Look

For a casual weekend look, wear floral or psychedelic printed shorts with a tee. If you’re feeling bold, go ahead and layer print-on-print. Add a stylish bomber to avoid looking like a teenager and wear a sophisticated leather hold-all or a printed backpack depending on your mood. Complete the look with a pair of all-white sneakers like the Adidas Originals Stan Smiths, which are having a real moment now. To read more on that, check out Verve’s coverage of the trend. If you’re planning on stepping out in the rains, showerproof yourself with a classic trench or a colourful parka.
