Fitted bodycon dresses, high hemlines and metallic colours are some of the style statements you can opt for during the rainy season, suggest experts.

Fashion experts give following styling tips:

* High hemlines are your friends in the rainy season. Fitted bodycon dresses or mini skirts with a metallic top are recommended. If going for a semi-formal look, try replacing trousers with a nice pair of culottes.

* Oodles of colours -- be in solids or strong prints go a long way.

* Don't forget to pop the entire look with metallic accessories, tassel earrings or a side tassel sling bag to add the much-needed drama. Metallic works well with accessories to create a funky party look.

* If the party is indoors, wear palazzos and a sleeveless top to look fashionable. If the party is outdoor, wear loose hot pants and tank top with slippers. Crop top with high waisted pants would also go for a party scene.

* Adding a graphic punch to the look via stripes will add a fun factor and make the outfit interesting, but keep everything else to a bare minimum, including make-up.

* Embrace super-glossy metallic for the night adding oomph to the outfit. Think beyond gold and silver and team it up with rose gold, copper for different upbeat looks.

* Shirt dresses are a great party choice. They are light, airy. They can easily be dressed down for a dance party and some accessories can kick it up a notch.

* Avoid stilettos or any high heels. Go for wedges or flats as they can be much comfortable.


Inputs by fashion experts say this:

* Opt for a crop top with dhoti pants for the dance party as the outfit will give a ease to your body and is also breathable.

* Pair a long, asymmetrical, loose fitted kurta with slim fit pants or short kurtas with jeans for the party look.

* For a cool, casual look, pair an indie top with slim fit pants or a short kurti with floral palazzo.

* In terms of fabric -- pure cotton, silk, mul, chiffon, nylon, georgette are best for this season.

* Team up the outfits with comfortable wedges, platform heels, flips flop sandals.
