Fashion Essentials for Rainy Days
When spring is in the air, we all want to ditch our coats and jackets to show off our outfits. Spring doesn’t always mean sunny skies. Rainy days will be coming our way.
Rain can really put a damper on your fashion choices. If you know how to make your practical raindrop essentials into fashionable pieces, the water dropping from the sky will not brother you as much.
What are the fashion essentials you need for rainy days? Well, we are here to help.
Coat Choice: Trench vs. Raincoat
When it rains, you generally have two outerwear choices: trench or raincoat. For years, the classic trench (pictured) has been a cute look for rainy weather. The high belt gives you an empire waist appeal. You can find trench coats in prints, in different hues, and in many shapes at places like Juicy Couture to Old Navy.
However, not all trench coats have hoods. The traditional raincoat is a better option if you like a build in hair protector a.k.a the hood. The raincoat often gets a bad reputation for looking too childlike or too sporty. These days, raincoats are coming in various colors and grown up silhouettes.
Whatever coat you decide to wear, make sure it is water proof. Also, never wear your favorite coat on a rainy day.
When it’s a little bit of rain, you can slip on some water proof ballet flats and pack your work shoes in a bag. You can wear leather in damp weather, but never wear suede.
If fashion is your middle name, you can buy an umbrella to match every outfit you may wear. Or, you can buy two or three umbrellas in neutral colors that will match most of the clothing in your wardrobe.
Also, some umbrellas conveniently fit into your purse.
Water Proof Accessories and Clothing
Ladies, grab your leggings for rainy days instead of your jeans. Jeans absorb water easily and take a long time to try. Leggings that aren’t lightweight work better on rainy days because they dry quicker. Wet looking leggings are a great way to disguise the effects of rain.
Always pack an extra pair of socks or tights. Invest in a water proof handbag that can protect all the important items that you keep in your bag.
