Love for denim is undying, still, it may not be a good choice during the Monsoon. Whether in the form of a jacket or pants, denim will make monsoon considerably more difficult due to their poor quality and inability to dry rapidly than other textiles. They can make you feel super uncomfortable if worn for long hours.
Monsoon brings with it a whole host of seasonal diseases. Rain and humidity make for a perfect breeding ground for bacterial growth, leading to infection. Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), in particular, increases in incidence during this time. And women, more than men, are prone to it. What’re more, trendy, figure-hugging jeans and other tight clothing further increases the chances of UTI. They also absorb moisture which you definitely like to avoid.
Denim jackets are great for breezy summer nights or as a chic layer under a winter coat. They are the perfect outerwear of choice for spring but not during monsoon.
Instead, opt for lighter fabrics like cotton or linen. They dry really quickly and keep you breezy all day long. Opt for cropped jeans or lighter denim if you can’t cut jeans off from your wardrobe at all.
