Monsoon fashion trends 2021: Best styles for the season

When Elsa Schiaparelli said, “In difficult times, fashion is always outrageous,” she may as well have been talking about monsoon fashion. Of the seasons, monsoon can be the most confusing in terms of what to wear and how to wear it, be it apparel, accessories, or make up.

Fashion is all about the choice of what works best at your comfort zone. Here are some things you can keep in mind when you go out shopping for monsoon clothes.

Thane city Lifestyle | Monsoon fashion trends 2021: Best styles for the season


The first step is to learn what to avoid. Denim might be your ever time trending style statement, but not for this monsoon.

Denim is a very thick material which takes a lot of time to dry. Wearing wet denims for a long time can cause skin problems. So avoid wearing denim jackets, shorts, jeans and the like. Instead, give a try to loose fit bottoms such as palazzos, midi skirts, culottes, wide leg trousers and slim pants.


If you love walking in the rain, go for short-hemmed outfits which do not hinder your mobility in the rainy showers. The advantage of crop tops, shorts, skorts, and short to medium-length skirts is that they do not tend to get dirty in the rain.

Monsoon calls for a good collection of dresses. These include drawstring dress, midi dress, maxis, shirt dresses, wraps and flounce dresses. If you enjoy street fashion, you might enjoy drawstring dresses which are inspired from street fashion; flounce dresses on the other hand are more feminine pairing maximalist detailing with modest silhouettes.

Shirt dresses with kimono sleeves are a must for your wardrobe. It allows for sporty influences and a deep pointed collar, though the fit can be slightly oversized.

In case you get soaked, tunics such as maxis and wrap dresses are the easiest to dry off. Wrap waist dresses are a more comfortable alternative to maxis, offering a flattering fit with ties at the side as well as on the back. Fabric maxis with fluted sleeves and lace panels are the trend now, so you can give those a try as well.

Midi dresses, which are neither too long nor too short, are pretty good for rains. They can even work when there is a dress code. Mini dresses are also fair enough, with slight kimono sleeves and a self fabric belt.


If you cannot pick a single dress, go for the best coordinate choices. Use a suitable top wear along with your jeans-replacement. Asymmetric kurtis and A-line tops can be worn with palazzos. The A-line silhouette is nostalgic of 1970s fashion.

Long and loose fits stand out this season. Wrap T-shirts and skirts will give the same desired effect of wrap dresses in terms of dryness and comfort. You can go for cardigans with plain tees if you cannot bear the cold. Use slim pants, fit pants or midi skirts for bottom wear.

Crop tops with culottes are a secondary coordinate choice. Culottes are very loose fitted, which can make you feel free as well as comfortable.

Waterproof jackets, hoodies and trench coats are already up in the market to replace the raincoats. Loose flare sleeve hoodies are a good choice to bear with the cold. Unlike the normal hoodies, these are slightly cropped with finishing at the hips. Use it with cotton trousers, midi skirts or culottes.

Embroidered sweatshirts are in this season, which can be worn with culottes or slim pants.


Tight fitting clothes will cling to your body when wet. Use loose fitting clothes made of cotton, linen, khadi or synthetic materials, or any other fabrics which are easy to dry. Also use garments which are half sleeved or sleeveless. You may prefer off-shoulders, dungarees or jumpsuits made of linen or cotton as well. Shorter sleeves will give you freshness, preventing water from clinging in your under-arms.


Bright colours are trending this monsoon season. Bright hues in monochrome can be seen around you, such as cherry, fresh red, blush, teal paired with neutrals like grey, blue and beige. Yellow is the pop-out colour, good for both dresses and accessories.

Avoid white, though the colour is trending, as it is not good for the rains, which could make your clothes dirty as well as transparent when wet.


Minimal and muted accessorization is enough for this monsoon. Avoid tight water-absorbing footwear, which can cause bacterial growth. Nude shades are the top trends with gladiator sandals, open sandals, ballerinas, slip-ons etc. Also crocs, flip-flops, jelly shoes, silicon shoes, pvc boots, gumboots are flooding the market with funky colors.

Avoid wearing metal accessories as it might cause skin problems if you get wet. Chokers and bright scarfs are on trend now, which is a good choice. Never use open bags (like tote bags) as they can be problematic in the rainy season. Use bags with polyester inner linings and closed zippers.

Besides fashion accessories and apparel, monsoons are also the time for umbrellas. Bright coloured umbrellas are in this season. There are some with bright prints on transparent surfaces.


Try loose hairstyles over tying your hair up. You can go for a pony tail. If you wanna get a haircut, go for short hairstyle as they are the most convenient in the monsoon.

Heavy makeup including layers can cause a lot of discomfort, as the air contains a lot of moisture which can separate your makeup. Go for light make up and make sure to use waterproof products.

Some food for thought this monsoon is to consider sustainable fashion. Companies are starting to adopt recyclable goods into their garments, says Smrithi Manohar, a Junior Executive Designer from Shahi Exports Pvt. Ltd. in Bangalore. “Monsoon fashion is a great idea that should be put into work on a larger scale. The design houses and other industries in fashion are making use of recycled items for creating fashion goods from garments to accessories… hereby helping nature as well as the environment.” She adds that there are very few brands working on such ideas. “Others should be encouraged to do so.”

Ultimately, monsoon is all about cheers, freshness and fun, so make sure you dress the part as well. Be it in your choice of colours, fabric, or accessories, anything can be a style statement to bring out your aesthetics of monsoon. Moreover, make sure you add a smile while you cheer up for this monsoon!

Flying During a Pandemic – Precautions to Be Taken

Travel Tips and Tricks by Thaneweb | Flying During a Pandemic - Precautions to Be Taken

​This is one of the most uncertain times of the year. The virus outbreak has locked everything down. The travelers are scared to plan their next trips, and most airlines are experiencing choppy waters. But there can be times when you cannot avoid flying. And flying during such an epidemic disease is truly a matter of concern. So, what should you do to avoid contracting the disease? This article contains all the precautions that travelers need to take while in flight.Things to Keep in Mind Before You Jet Out

1. Do a thorough Research

Make sure to check the health notices before you plan your itinerary to another country. Read the travel advisories and notices and stay updated. Research thoroughly where to fly, and where not to. So many airlines and cruise lines have suspended or routed their services to other airports and cruise ports. Hence, make sure to consult your travel agents before you set out for a journey. Or you can simply visit Travel.State.Gov and type the destination you are flying to; you’ll get the better idea about the current scenarios there.

2. Know the Things You Must Pack

Besides your other belongings, you must carry travel insurance and other essential travel documents along. Plan and pack for the unforeseen, such as pack the additional doses for your medication and an extra pair of clothes in case the airline announces a flight delay due to the outbreak.

3. Sanitize Your Seat

You need to be extra cautious when you are in a war against a contagious disease. And for that, sanitize your plane seat using antibacterial wipes with alcohol. Clean every corner of your area such as armrests, seat belt handle, tray table, call button, air vents and if possible, seat’s headrests. These are the most touched areas and disinfecting them is an effective way to wipe off the germs. You must also apply the same practice while traveling on train or bus.

4. Be Cautious about what you touch

Respiratory ailments transmit to others when they come in contact with the saliva or mucus of an infected person. First, wear a mask while traveling and secondly be cautious about the surfaces that you touch. Since the droplets from the cough and sneeze reach the nearby surfaces, which further can affect the other passengers.

In case you happen to sit with a person who is sneezing and coughing, do not touch any surface in the area. Also, wash your hands for at least 20 seconds and don’t touch your face with unclean hands. Always travel with an alcohol-based sanitizer and disinfectant wipes.

5. Be aware of the signs

You may fall sick during the flight journey; hence you must know the signs of contagious diseases like COVID-19. If you feel that you have contracted the virus seek medical attention immediately. DO NOT TRY TO HIDE THE SITUATION AT ALL.

The common symptoms for the disease include shortening of breath, cough, and fever. However, the symptoms do not particularly point to coronavirus, it can be a common flu too. But it’s better to take help instantly. Also, make sure to buy travel insurance that covers Coronavirus.​​

Buying vs Leasing Commercial Real Estate: Pros and Cons of Each

Real Estate Properties in Thane City | Buying vs Leasing Commercial Real Estate: Pros and Cons of Each

Many businesses operate out of commercial spaces, whether they be storefronts, factories or offices. If you’re launching a new business, or expanding an existing one, you’ll have to decide whether to rent or buy commercial real estate.

When you buy a property, you can either pay cash upfront or finance it with a loan. With a lease, you rent the property for a set term, at which point you must renegotiate if you wish to continue using it. Several factors go into choosing the right strategy for your business, including cash outflows, recurring costs, tax implications, property value, business equity and more.Pros and Cons of Buying Commercial Real Estate
Pros and Cons of Leasing Commercial Real Estate
When Should You Buy or Lease Commercial Property?

Pros and Cons of Buying Commercial Real Estate

Commercial real estate maintains its value over time as long as it’s maintained properly — it’s a long-term asset. Here are some advantages and disadvantages of buying a piece of commercial property.

Pros of buying commercial propertyCons of buying commercial property
Equity in the property builds over timeUpfront down payment required
Asset value appreciates over timeDifficulty qualifying for financing
Potential for rental incomePrepayment penalties on loans
Tax breaks for interest, depreciation and non-mortgage expensesLiability insurance required
Control of the propertyPotential for loss of liquidity or capital

Pros of Buying

Building equity:If you pay all cash, you own 100% of the property right away. If you take out a loan, your down payment and monthly payments build equity in the property. If you refinance or sell the property, your equity is the difference between the property’s fair market value and the remaining loan balance, and it helps build the overall value of your business.

Appreciating asset: Owning commercial real estate allows you to benefit from capital appreciation — the increase in your property’s value over time. The rate of appreciation varies with the inflation rate, local supply and demand conditions, interest rates and other factors.

Rental income: Typically, a business that buys commercial property occupies at least 51% of it. This is because lenders classify the real estate as an investment property when the ownership share is 50% or less — a factor that makes it harder to qualify for the loan. If you have leftover space, you might want to rent it out to tenants and create a secondary income stream. For instance, if you buy a small building, you might rent out the ground floor to a retailer, restaurant, travel agency or another business.

Tax breaks: You can deduct interest and depreciation on your commercial property as a tax break.

Control: When you own property, you have control over it (within the confines of zoning restrictions), which means you don’t have to negotiate with a landlord if you want to reconfigure the space. You’ll also make fixed monthly mortgage payments, instead of a rent payment that can be changed whenever a lease expires.

Cons of Buying

Upfront spending: Typically, you’d have to make a down payment of 10% to 40% of the property’s value, and you’ll also have to pay for closing costs and origination and appraisal fees. For example, on a $1 million property, you can expect to pay anywhere from $100,000 to $400,000 out of pocket for the down payment and other fees.

Difficulty qualifying for financing: You may have trouble qualifying for a commercial real estate loan with a reasonable interest rate if you or your business cannot get approved for bank financing. While the best commercial real estate loans can have interest rates below 4%, loans made by hard money lenders can have rates of 10% or more. In this case, it may be more cost-effective to lease.

Prepayment penalties: Many commercial real estate loans come with hefty prepayment fees or other penalties specific to commercial real estate, in the form of yield maintenance or defeasance, if you prepay the loan balance.

Liabilities: You are responsible if someone is hurt on your property, which means you’ll have to pay for a liability insurance policy to protect yourself from lawsuits. If you rent out part of the property, you are subject to property manager liability, which will require additional insurance and property upkeep. Furthermore, many loans may require a personal guarantee, which makes you personally liable to repay the loan if your business cannot.

Loss of liquidity or capital: There is always the chance that your property’s value will decline and you might take a capital loss if you decide to sell, which is a drawback. Plus, you may also have liquidity issues since your money would be tied up in the property. To recover your money, you’d have to sell or do a partial cash-out refinance. What’s more, the money tied up in the property could have been used for other opportunities had you leased instead.

Pros and Cons of Leasing Commercial Real Estate

Commercial leases typically run from five to 10 years. You can use the property during the lease, subject to any restrictions built into the lease agreement.

Pros of leasing commercial propertyCons of leasing commercial property
Access to more liquidityNo equity or benefits from appreciation
Fixed monthly costUnable to collect passive income
Tax breaks for property expensesHigh rent expenses
Flexibility to leave the propertyNo control of the space

Pros of Leasing

More liquidity: You tie up significantly less of your cash because you don’t need to make a down payment to move into the space. However, you should expect to pay upfront fees for an attorney, broker, prelease inspection and security deposit.

Fixed monthly cost: When leasing, you generally won’t have to pay for any significant maintenance, repairs or upkeep to the property, though you may be expected to pay for minor repairs. Instead, you’ll know exactly what you need to pay each month without the worry of unanticipated, expensive repair costs.

Tax breaks: You may deduct these costs as incurred: Lease payments, property insurance, property taxes (depending on the lease type), utilities and maintenance. You can deduct your entire lease payment, in contrast to a mortgage’s interest-only deduction.

More flexibility: Qualifying for a lease is oftentimes easier than qualifying for a commercial real estate loan, so you have more options when it comes to picking a space. You can also move when the lease is up without having to sell the property. You might be able to afford to lease a property that is too expensive to buy, which can help you get into a prime or strategic location.

Cons of Leasing

No equity or appreciation: You don’t accumulate any equity when you lease, although some contracts have a lease-to-own commercial property feature that allows you to apply a portion of the rent you’ve already paid toward the purchase of the property. Without equity, you don’t benefit from capital appreciation.

No passive income: You aren’t the landlord and thus cannot collect rent from others, losing secondary income you could gain from owning property.

Rent is expensive: Your monthly rent payments will usually exceed mortgage payments on the same property. The typical triple-net lease agreement makes tenants responsible for monthly retail insurance, property taxes, utilities and maintenance costs. When added to the lease payment, your costs are greater, although after-tax costs depend on the situation.

No control: The lease may have restrictions and even early termination clauses that hamstring the tenant’s ability to control the rental space. You have no control over rent hikes when the lease expires, and if you go out of business, you must continue paying rent or face penalties.

When Should You Buy or Lease Commercial Property?

Typically, it makes more sense to buy if you have enough cash for the down payment and six months’ worth of mortgage payments without causing your business to hit a cash crunch. Purchasing might be a good option if you:Want to rent out part of the space to generate a secondary income stream
Plan to build equity in the property
Want to reorganize the space as you see fit

On the other hand, leasing might be the right answer if you want:The flexibility to move out at the end of the lease
To avoid tying up your money in the down payment
More tax deductions on the leasing costs
Freedom from the responsibility of maintaining the property, depending on your lease
To operate in a space too expensive to purchase

If you are interested in purchasing commercial real estate, you should consider a loan guaranteed by the Small Business Administration (SBA) as a first option. The SBA offers two loan programs that can be used for commercial real estate: 7(a) loans and 504 loans. While 7(a) loans are general-purpose loans, 504 loans are specifically designed for the purchase or refinance of commercial property.

Girivihar Tours and Travels

girivihar Adventures Tours and Travels

About us

About Us – GIRIVIHAR was established in 1954 with the aim of promoting a sense of adventure and love for nature among youths mainly through outdoor activities such as trekking and hiking. The club was transformed from the The Inter Collegiate Hikers Club originally formed by some professors & students of Bombay University to promote hiking & trekking to the hills & forts of the Sahyadris among the students & teachers of the Bombay University. However, in order to broaden the membership base beyond the people of Bombay University it was renamed ‘GIRIVIHAR’. Since then the club has grown from strength to strength. It has continued to successfully organize its primary activity of hiking & trekking in the Sahyadri ranges consistently for the last 62 years.

Through this basic activity has sprung the more advanced pursuits of Rock-Climbing, High Altitude trekking in the Himalay and mountaineering expeditions to Himalayan peaks. New hikers continue to join the ranks of GIRIVIHAR, while more experienced climbers attempt peaks in Himalayas. Since 1966, 40+ Rock-Climbing camps, 20+ Adventure Camps, 50+ expeditions & high altitude treks and numerous Pinnacle climbs have been organized, climaxing in an attempt in 1988 on Mt. Kangchenjunga (28,208 ft. 8586 m.), the third highest mountain in the world. During this expedition, though the summit was not reached, 2 climbers were able to go beyond 8000 m and a vast experience was gained during this expedition. Exactly 10 years later this valuable experience helped achieve a very big success. Surendra Chavan & Lavraj Dharmashaktu reached the summit of Everest on 18th May 1998 on behalf of a small civilian expedition celebrating Golden Jubilee of Indian Independence. As a fall-out effort from Kangchenjunga Expedition of 1988, a separate trust was created named K M Foundation for letting all the fraternity utilize the asset in the form of very high quality mountaineering equipment store.
