Are you ready? Here’s everything that you should know:
Invest in a Good and Stylish Coat
The rainy season is absolutely the perfect time to wear stylish trench coats, jackets, and blazers. But when it comes to choosing what kind of coat to wear, it is recommended that you go for something that will provide you with full protection against the rain and the accompanying cold weather. So, consider the functionality of the coat as well aside from its style.
And by the way, for you to maintain a stylish look this wet season, make sure to familiarize yourself with the different kinds of coats. Among the most stylish coats for the season are camel coats, car coats, trench coats, and peacoats. But as we are living in the tropics and it’s rare for Philippine weather to get that cold as to justify wearing those, you can still opt to choose between a bomber jacket and a hoodie and still look fashion-savvy.
Accessorize Your Outfit with Basic Rainy Day Accessories
Don’t just rely on your outfit to be fashionable this season. Rainy day accessories such as umbrellas, beanies, caps, and scarves can also make you look even more stylish.
That said, don’t limit your choices of rainy day accessories. Try to accessorize your OOTD with trendy stuff that are perfectly fit for the wet season.
Go Lighter with Your Makeup
All makeup lovers agree that the wet season is definitely the toughest for wearing makeup. You spend hours and hours doing your makeup only to have it erased by rainwater. The ideal makeup look for this season is the natural or bare-faced look. Apply less makeup and go for a more natural look; choose lighter shades of your makeup, and avoid applying dense makeup like concealers and liquid foundations.
Additionally, aside from going lighter with your makeup, see to it that you also choose your makeup appropriately.
Learn the Art of Layering
Layering is the most appropriate fashion sense during rainy and windy days. If you want to look fashionable but at the same time warm and comfy, then you should definitely learn everything about layering. There are a lot of things to consider when learning about the art of layering. First, you must know to mix and match your clothes. Second, you have to experiment with the colors of your apparel, and third, you also have to accentuate your body shape by wearing a belt or choosing form-fitting items of clothing; there’s just no sense looking like a shambling mound of clothes.
Don’t Be Afraid to Wear Bright Colors
Dark shades of clothing are the most suitable for the rainy season because they help keep you warm, and dirt, mud, and rainwater are not that visible on dark-hued apparel compared to light-colored ones. But with the season’s weather being gloomy and dreary, it won’t hurt if you swathe yourself with bright colors.
It doesn’t stop with clothes either; wearing items of clothing and accessories that have bright colors can actually help brighten your mood. So, don’t just stick with dark colors this season
Choose Comfy Closed Shoes
Be extra picky with your footwear as well. Choose something that is stylish, comfortable, and can offer protection against the cold, mud, and floodwater.
Go for footwear that’s made of rubber, but make sure not to compromise your style. Stick with flats and avoid wearing heels. Wearing shoes that have heels increases the chances of slipping when walking under the rain. Footwear that is made of leather is also a bad choice during the rainy days since getting them regularly soaked in the water can permanently damage the material.
