How to Look Stylish in the Rain

Hi Everyone,

With this incredibly changeable Spring we’ve been having in Europe, I’ve decided it’s time for a few tips about how to look stylish in the rain.

Luckily, for this article, but not so lucky for the fashionistas, it rained somewhat during the last Milan Fashion Week. This means I have some fun images of what Milan fashionistas wear when it rains. These may or may not be inspiring for you as truth be told the rain wasn’t beneficial to anyone’s outfit.

The best accessory you can ever wear to make yourself look stylish in the rain is a big smile. Hold that umbrella with pride and smile wide – after this it won’t matter what you are wearing – it will automatically become a stylish rain outfit.

3 Basic tips (other than smiling ) for looking stylish in the rain are:
  1. Make sure your umbrella is in good condition and big enough to really cover you. In the rain, having a good umbrella is equivalent to having a good handbag! Also a big enough umbrella could save you from having to wear a trench or other waterproof clothing – hence your original outfit remains preserved.
  2. Wear a trench long enough to cover whatever you are wearing. This way at least your outfit underneath will stay dry and look good indoors. If it rains often where you live I suggest having a selection of coloured trench’s to wear with different outfits. Leaving a trench open in the rain can also make the whole appearance more stylish.
  3. Style your hair back, up or in plaits – this way even if your clothes get wet at least your hair will stay well presented.

  1. Thank you for giving me a valid excuse to buy another trench coat – having one in another color. I love them! And those are really cool shots, by the way! 😍👌

    1. Me too, I feel like I need to follow my own advice and buy another trench coat too – smile!
