UGH! This weather is awful. Crisp, clear, autumn days are great, agreed? But dull, dark, wet and windy – no thanks. It looks like we’re stuck with it for a while though, so time to get some rainy weather wear sorted out.
We’re not talking cagoules here, okay? Yes, we know they keep the rain off, but they’re not hugely stylish are they? If you’re commuting, a good winter coat, a brolly (if one will stay up), or a hat are perfect rainy weather wear.
Leather is great in the rain, as is PU – we love this BHS faux leather dress – just wipe the rain right off!
