Rain can be an aspiring fashion lover’s worst nightmare. Dull, shapeless outerwear, frizzy hair, and runny make-up may ruin your entire style. You can avoid becoming a rainy day disaster, however, simply by looking for waterproof clothing that flatters your figure and appeases your personality. The right hair care products and cosmetics can further transform your look for the better.
Look chic, not drenched in a downpour by following the rules below..
1. Get contacts in Exchange for glasses
If you wear prescription eyeglasses, consider ordering prescription contacts for rainy days. Once your glasses get wet and foggy in a rainstorm, it can be difficult to see clearly.
2. Do not overspend on umbrella
Umbrellas have a tendency to get lost or damaged with relative ease. A fancy umbrella designed to endure winds will likely last longer than a cheap umbrella found in the kid’s section of a department store, but it will not last forever, and the extra longevity may not be worth its high price tag.
If you wear a watch on your wrist, leave it off or switch to a water-proof or water-resistant watch for the day.
4. Keep dry
Make sure everything in your pockets also stays dry. For instance, if you carry around an iPod or mp3 player, put it into a waterproof case before sticking it in the pocket of your trench coat.
5. Avoid suede and other materials that can suffer water damage
Do not carry any bags in this material or wear any shoes made with this material. Unprotected leather can also get ruined in the rain.
6. Get a good pair of rain boots
Brightly coloured rubber boots can give off a childish vibe, especially if they are speckled in daisies, polka dots, or other loud prints. If you want to wear a coloured rain boot, opt for bold, solid colours over patterns. Alternatively, a rubber riding boot or a leather boot with a waterproof coating can give your look a sophisticated edge.
