[Guest Post] Fashion Do’s and Don’ts during the Rainy Season

The rainy season shouldn’t stop you from being in style! There are things you can only wear during this season that will look fashionable so take advantage of it! Before you head out and brace the storm in style, here are some fashion do’s and don’ts you need to remember.

  • Do wear bright colored clothes. The rainy season is a gloomy season. Bring life to your ensemble by wearing bright colored tops or jackets. Have fun with red, yellow, orange, pink, and other attractive colors! Eye-popping rainy day accessories like scarves and shawls will also add the striking contrast you need in your wardrobe. 

  • Don’t wear white pants. Put your white pants on closet arrest during the rainy season. Unless you’re going for a muddy splatter-filled look, white pants do not belong to this season’s fashion. With pools of water everywhere you go, you’ll only stain your white pants if you decide to wear them. Don’t risk it. The hassle of removing mud stain is not worth your time and effort if you could’ve otherwise avoided it. 

  • Do wear boots. Rainy season is the only time of the year when boots get the spotlight. There are a lot of cool fashionable boots you can wear while weathering the storm in style. Jelly rain boots come in different quirky colors that can spice up your look! If you really want to be protected and still look trendy, go for edgy platform boots. 

  • Don’t wear heavy clothing. You will most likely get wet during the rainy season. The last thing you want is to be soaked in heavy clothes that will take a long time to dry. As much as possible, avoid wearing jeans most especially when you know you’ll walk through some flooded areas. But if you’re a true-blue jeans person, you can fold it until just below the knee like capri pants. You’ll still look fashionable without sacrificing the practicality of your outfit. 

  • Do keep a classic trench coat. You’ll never go wrong with a trench coat during the rainy season. You can go bold with bright attractive trench coats or go classy with black or earth colors. Either way, it’s an essential and perfect rainy season wear that should be a staple in your closet. In addition, if you’re mulling over the length of your trench coat, go for short ones—those that extend just within knee length or a little over above it. A full body trench coat will be heavy on the bottom part when it gets wet. 

  • Don’t use material that won’t survive the rain. It’s suicide to wear suede when it rains. Your suede shoes and bags will most likely be ruined. Leather is not water-proof. Unless you put a protectant on your leather shoes, then that’s the only time you can wear them. You can be chic without putting your valuable shoes and bag at risk of wear-and-tear. Try other materials like rubber or pleather (i.e. plastic leather) which can be fashionable, too! Fashion knows no season. You can face the rainy season with a trendy mix and still be practical at the same time. Don’t be afraid to dress up during drizzle days! It’s fun to explore different clothes and layers that will keep you warm and make you look stylish at the same time.
