We regrettably had to learn this lesson the hard way and now always check our weather app before leaving the house. We’ve been caught in a downpour more times than we can count while wearing fuzzy, furry, or — yuck! — white clothing, and the images of our sopping wet shoes and socks are still so fresh in our minds.
But just because we’re now wise enough to anticipate these rains doesn’t mean that dressing has gotten any simpler. There are guidelines to follow, such avoiding wearing light-colored clothing and remembering to layer. Since it might be challenging to pull together the ideal rainy-day outfit, we’ve looked to street style in an effort to find a solution.
Choose timeless pieces.
On a rainy day, wearing your favourite jeans is cool and laid-back. If you’re feeling brave, try a denim shirt in place of a tee while styling them with your go-to ankle boots.
Try New Layering Techniques
Wear a light, non-bulky hoodie underneath your maxi dress if the weather cools off. Then, for a unique and entertaining finishing touch, add a pair of sneakers to the ensemble!
Don’t be afraid to experiment
Shorts are typically associated with casual footwear like sneakers or sandals. Combat boots, on the other hand, are a cute alternative that will keep your feet dry if you happen to step in any puddles.
Use some colour blocking
On a dreary day, you should wear vibrant, but more importantly, simple clothes. Try with different colour combinations by grabbing the brightest items in your closet. A pair of neutral shoes will offer some stability.
Put on a long dress
For days that are neither too hot nor too chilly, the basic will work with a pair of boots and a long jacket.
Get Your Sweat On
A structured button-down, a jacket, and a pair of zip-up boots can enhance even the cosiest pair of jeans.
If showing off your legs isn’t a possibility, channel the early 2000s by wearing a dress or long tunic over cropped jeans.
Keep your rain boots handy
If the sun comes out in the middle of the day, invest in a sleek, short, black pair that can pass for regular booties.
Give your attire a relaxed twist.
No love for boots? Instead, wear a worn-out pair of sneakers. They won’t need to be cleaned up, and they’ll add a carefree vibe to your ensemble.
Put a Hat On
Whether it’s a beret, hat, or bucket choice, it will add flair to your ensemble and stylishly preserve your hair.
Reach For Loose Pants
Anything tight-fitting and restricting can make you regret wearing it, especially if you want to take it easy all day. Along with keeping you in style, a loose pair of khakis looks excellent with a straightforward tank top and cardigan.
