Rainy Weather Wear

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!

A beret will stay firm on your head even in gale-force wind, and if you have to wear wellies in the rain, how about a calf-length pair of glossy Hunters? And how adorable are these grey gloves from White Stuff with a cute hidden heart on the palm.

Rainy Weather Fashion

So, the rain is here, and normal summer service is resumed. Well, not quite – it’s thundery, almost tropical rain and it’s still quite warm. So, rainy weather fashion for summer isn’t about warmth and layers. Just a pair of wellies, an umbrella and perhaps a light rain mac is all you need. Easy to shed when the sun pops out from behind the clouds.

A good raincoat is a great investment – let’s face it, we know we’ll use it – plenty of time for rainy weather fashion in Scotland! A pair of umbrella earrings are a cute nod to the nuisance that is rain!
