Travelling this Monsoon? Here’s your Handy Checklist

The season is perfect for a weekend get-away with your family and friends! Before the rain Gods come knocking at your door, it’s wise to pack a monsoon-ready wardrobe while going for the tourist-trailing route. Here’s presenting a fashionable to-do checklist that you need to wear this monsoon, and look a grand spectacle, wherever you head to:

"online accessories for women at Jabong"

Opt for a raincoat that is lightweight and provides rain-cover. Alternatively, you can get a travel umbrella available in eclectic prints that is compact enough to fit into your handbag, and provides style along with functionality!

Stash your trousers and jeans in your closet! Battle the humidity, and moisture with the evergreen combination of casual oversized t-shirts and floral shorts. Stick to fabrics like cottons, linen as they are lightweight and absorb perspiration, allowing your body to be at ease.  Choose from our extensive assortment of Jabong tops and take your pick! If not shorts, palazzo pants, capris, and skirts also nail the chic street look with much effortless élan. Tie your hair into a sky-high ponytail or a messy braid, to ensure your hair, as well as your style game stays in place!

The icy-cool breeze, romantic rain and your favourite people around you- sounds like a scene straight from Bollywood, right? Look the part of your favourite Bolly heroine, with flowing maxis, tailor-made for the season. Don a vibant hued maxi dress or maxi skirt, and emanate easy elegance, as you hit the best spots in the city. Instead of getting your lengthy dresses or skirts mucky, you can also choose to doll up in short bright coloured rompers, while combatting the gloomy weather.  Instead of lugging around your umpteen pairs of footwear, pack in your favourite pair of ballerinas and flip-flops. Add freshness to your sartorial sensibilities with these handy extras, to ensure all eyes are on you.

Head for your long, languid weekend holiday with a compact sling bag that works well to carry you from day to night. Go minimal with accessories, and invest in vibrant scarves that serve a dual purpose of protecting your hair from getting wet and frizzy, and also add a pop of colour to your look. Look no further than the online accessories for women at Jabong, for multi-coloured scarves, designed to complement your every outfit!

So, folks, where are you heading to, this weekend?
