Get Drenched – Keep your Style Game Dry in a Downpour!
Posted on 18 August 2015
Worst thing about summer dressing?
Meticulously checking the weather. Putting together the perfect sun-worshipping outfit.
And then having your beautifully breezy summer vibe washed out – literally – by a freak summer rain storm.
If you’re starting to twitch at the slightest hint of grey clouds on the horizon and are considering in just resigning to wrapping in an oh-so-cool waterproof parka for the rest of the season, fear not.
We’ve got some really handy pointers to make sure you can keep your style game safe and dry – no matter how soggy it gets!
Wafting around in a floor-grazing gauzy creation might feel like the perfect boho summer fantasy of your dreams – but it’s not quite so fun when your beautiful maxi dress is soaked halfway in mud and rain.
The midi length is the perfect length for every weather situation. This festival-inspired crochet number from Stevie May is ideal for pairing with stomp-worthy boots and wellies when the heavens open, and with glam gladiators for when the sun comes back.
Add some serious colour
When the skies are grey, when it feels like we’ve fast-tracked straight to autumn and you’ve lost the will to crawl out of bed, only some serious colour can fix the situation.
Treat your nails to some mega-colour to make up for the lack of blue skies. Wah Nails psychedelic ombre shades are just what you need to brighten your day. Underline their awesomeness with a sleek stack of rings - Mayal Magal's smooth, slim rings are perfect.
Trench it up
Forget the cringe-inducing school trip memories of a noisy, crunchy raincoat - the trench is the style-savvy solution of choice.
While we can’t guarantee how dry it’ll keep you underneath, this ultra-cool sheer trench from Jovanna wins huge style points. But if you really need to get practical, then you might want to invest in this classic number from MM6 by Maison Margiela – perfect for keeping you safe from getting soaked by passing cars (BTW – did you know it’s actually illegal to drive though puddles and splash people??) but with a cool minimalist vibe to keep you looking good.
While you’re at it, invest in a good umbrella too – not one of those nasty jobs that will collapse on its spokes at the first hint of a breeze. We’re in love with the fantastic candy-coloured collection of brollies from London Undercover – with everything from urban camo prints to ditsy Liberty florals.
Bring on the rain!
