5 Ways To Look Chic, Girly And Stay Dry In The Rainy Season

Share This

Rain is fun for so many things: splashing around in puddles, cozying up by the fire and movie marathons inside a warm place. But when it comes to fashion, it’s one of those things that trips us up more than anything else. How to look girly during a downpour? Here are five simple rules you need to follow (But First, Rain Boots)

Buy A Rain Jacket

This is a key piece. Especially, if despise the umbrella. Yes, they come in cute colors, patterns, and can make a cool statement. But, try carrying your laptop around with a Louis Vuitton, and texting, while holding an umbrella. Can’t be done easily right? Go hands-free all the way.

This means choosing a rain jacket that’s perfectly suited to the outside conditions. Our favorite is a long, water-repellent parka with a hood big enough to completely cover your head. It should have some weight to it, a flimsy anorak will not do. This way you can protect your outfit and your handbag underneath.

Try Synthetic Fabrics

We’re huge proponents of natural, breathable fabrics around here. But when it comes to gearing up for the rain, you should keep your cotton, silk, linen, and wool inside. Unless they are layered safely under sweaters or a jacket. If you love leggings, try switching from a cotton pair to a pair made from Lycra or nylon. Your activewear leggings are perfect in inclement weather. Fast-drying, opaque, comfortable. Try them under a dress instead of tights. If you usually wear wool trousers, try Ponte or a blend of polyester and rayon instead. These materials tend to be lightweight, so they won’t weigh you down if they get damp.

Wear Slim Fit Or Cropped Pants

While more coverage tends to be better, this rule doesn’t necessarily apply to pants or trousers. Long, flowy pants or flare jeans that brush the ground are more likely to collect mud and rainwater. Keep pants short and cropped. These types of pants also look the best with ankle boots, so definitely, no knee-length rain boots here.

Choose Skirts And Dresses

You can definitely wear your dresses and skirts. Just remember the rules above: choose sturdy fabrics. Cotton sundresses are best saved for warm summer days. If you want to cover your legs, just pair with fast-drying leggings instead of tights. Skirt and dresses look equally cute with tall boots and ankle boots, so if you already have a pair of tall wellies, this is the time to rock them.

Get A Hold-Everything Handbag

With rain, comes gear. Even for the most minimalist among us, you’ll need a bag big enough to carry your daily essentials. Great options include a water-repellant satchel, a roomy tote, or a sturdy backpack. One of the most important considerations when choosing a bag is how well it protects your belongings from the rain, especially your laptop and headphones.

Bonus: Don’t Forget The Extras

A guide to dressing in the rain wouldn’t be complete with mentioning your hair. One of the trickiest things to deal with for sure, you always want to protect your blowout or curls without worrying about frizz. This is where the shower cap comes in. Always have one in your bag, just in case, it starts to sprinkle. You never know when you might get caught in the rain and you always want to be prepared.
