Go with cottons!
Since you will be facing a lot of rain and humidity thereafter, the fabric of the apparel has to be absorbent and quick dry. If the fabric is unable to absorb water and sweat, your body can develop rashes and blisters, which can turn into something furthermore gruesome with time. Go with cotton, linen and blend cotton fabrics for the monsoon.
Avoid whites- Wear more colors!
