In truth, it may seem as if heavy downpours make it difficult to make a fashion statement these days; if you ask me I’ll say yes, but I believe with well-chosen pieces, you won’t look like a wet rag this wet season.
The Umbrella Is Your Friend.
We don’t need to wear lot to protect us from the rain. All we need to be cautious about is how to keep the mud, the rain, and cold winds away. What better way to do it than with the sturdy umbrella!
Cropped Jeans, boyfriend jeans or capris is a near-must!
In this torrid weather, you’ll never know when you have to tread the flood-ridden streets. Full length jeans tend to get heavy when wet, it’s better for you to avoid wearing them during the rain. You can, however, roll up your cuffs or opt for cropped jeans or capris. They’re fun, functional, and chic if worn with the right heels or ankle boots.
Leggings and hosiery for the ladies!
If you’re one of those girls who can’t seem to part with their cut-offs and denim skirts, fret not; there’s still hope for you. If you insist on wearing your skirts and dresses, then better keep your legs protected with leggings and hosiery. Showing off your legs during dry season is sexy, but showing off your legs coupled with your goose bumps (lol) during rainy season is a no!
Jackets, cardigans and hoodies.
Yeah! Who could survive the rainy days without at least one pair of those three? There are a lot of styles to choose from, but please, stay away from windbreakers. Opt for tailored jackets to give your look structure, cardigans to soften it, and hoodies to make it more casual and relaxed.
You may laugh at people who wear scarves around their necks like it snow, but think again. A scarf can be your only protection when a heavy shower starts pouring and you are sans umbrella. A scarf, aside from being a fashionable addition to your wardrobe, can also protect you when harsh winds start blowing. Love it or hate it, you can’t deny that scarves are functional and fashionable at the same time.
