Our choice for monsoon kids fashion is yellow. Why? Coz it's chirpy when the clouds are grey. Coz it stands out in a downpour. And because we like to refer to rains as liquid sunshine :)
Here are 5 ways to add style with yellow rainwear:
1. YELLOW RAIN BOOTS
Also known as galoshes - waterproof overshoes are your most stylish choice to stomp after frogs in in slushy gardens and puddles. The market is pouring with options since yellow rain boots are every kids fashion designer’s favourite. Worn over leggings / jeans or under shorts /dresses, they look cool and fun.
2. DRENCHED IN YELLOW
Stretch out your arms and welcome the downpour in bright, all-yellow raincoats. Their light material makes chasing frogs very easy. Designers have spoilt us for choice with styles varying from trench coat length, jacket-style, cape coat, The Beatles inspired and more. All styles have hoods protecting your head. Use it to pull a surprise face at that frog. Once in shock – catch it :)
3. CATCH THE FROG, NOT THE COLD!
Rains bring down the temperature and sudden showers often mean cough & cold. Stay on your game with lined yellow raincoats. The water repellent outer lets you run outdoors & soft lining keeps you warm. Roll up the sleeves to add pattern detail on the yellow. Buckle up the high neck collar to avoid sneezing. You don’t want to alarm the frog to leap away!
4. TRANSPARENT RAIN GEAR WITH SPRINKLES OF YELLOW
Another stylish choice is transparent rainwear with a yellow design element. Such as ducks, polkas, stripes. Seen in both raincoats& umbrellas, this minimalist look can be easily worn over any outfit. The look is playful and you can show-off your froggie after you place it in your pocket.
5. PITTER-PATTER POUCHES
Carry essentials like pocket money, drinking water, napkins etc., in bright water-proof pouches / bags. They can survive a heavy lash and add a dash of peppy yellow to your outfit. Also perfect to store candy for extra energy and chasing power.
