Summer fun is over and this signifies the official start of the rainy season. While the rain is always associated with bed weather, we just can’t stay all day in bed. We have to continue with our daily activities including meeting deadlines, showing up in meetings and braving the storm. And with the change in weather, one of the things to consider is our outfit.
Fashion is greatly affected by the weather. We all wanted to look stylish while also protecting ourselves from the heavy rains. Below are some of the fashion must-haves during the rainy day to keep you dry and warm and still look stylish.
Umbrellas are one of the most important fashion must have to combat the rain. Look for a stylish umbrella that can be folded to fit into your bag. Umbrellas now come in different colors and styles so it will not be difficult to be fashionable.
Invest in high cut boots that will save your feet from the dirt of flood. Go for sturdy and classic boots so you always look stylish even where running in the rain.
From plain plastic materials, raincoats have evolved into a fashion piece that is not only helpful in protecting us from the rains but is also a stylish rain gear.
Bring out that knitwear to keep you warm and comfortable. Knits are flexible enough to allow you to move freely while helping you produce enough body heat.
There is nothing more devastating than getting drenched in the rain no matter how you prepare for that heavy downpour. It can lead to an even bigger embarrassment if people around you can spot that you are wearing your neon pink underwear. Some colors look transparent when wet. Avoid brightly colored undergarments and make sure to wear neutral shade during the rainy season.
