The designer guidebook

Footwear is the most important part of any wardrobe. This doesn’t have to be about boring gumboots. You can look smart and stylish with a lot of synthetic stuff available in the market. There are lots of faux leather sneakers and boots available that not only keep you safe from the rain, but make you look fashionable too. Choose materials that are easy to look after.
As far as trousers go, give the heavy denims and chinos a miss. These are difficult to dry and get heavier when wet. Go for lighter fabrics like linen and cotton.

For top wear, opt for a polyester base. They dry easily and are lightweight. Denims are a strict no-no; instead, choose light fabrics that dry easily.

For casual evenings or Sunday wear, pick lightweight chinos. Mix brighter colour tops with dark bottom wear. Navy blue bottom wear is a good option. Apparel that is made from cotton and is lightweight, works. Dark-coloured bottom wear works as patches and stains stay hidden. Black, brown and grey are ideal for a clean look.

Shorts are good, but you need to have great legs. They are good for Sunday afternoons and casual wear days. For evenings, it’s important to get the footwear right. Pick patented leather footwear. Use water-repelling sprays to protect them.
