It’s a romantic notion; kissing in the rain, singing in the rain, but if there’s one thing we know as a fact of life it’s that rainy fashion is hardly glamorous, flattering or romantic. However we have a few considerations to make as far as fashion ideas saved for a rainy day is concerned. These fashion tips work for a rainy winter or the light spring rains that are often banked on. So if you’re tentative about stepping outside because those grey clouds look determined to rain on your parade, consider these rainy day tips courtesy of a fashion guru.
The Raincoat Revolution
One might consider a raincoat frumpy and not flattering to one’s body at all, but the power to change that lies in your own taste. Opting for translucent bright colours with just enough transparency to let what you plan to wear underneath show; you can get away with high fashion on a rainy spring day without having a dull curtain of a raincoat covering it all up. Otherwise you can make the raincoat the star of the show by going for a flattering floral design that matches you hair colour. As an accessory to this look, get your hands on a bright neon umbrella and go to town; this look makes the most of the rainy season and fashion.
Getting Away With Mixed Tones
Moisture is no good to leather so it’s probably time to have those hibernate for awhile. You can instead be courageous and take on bright jellies allowing you to stand out from the dull greys that rainy weather tends to be synonymous with. The look has pretty much become a hit on many a fashion Tumblr or blogs dealing with rainy days. The rainy season is also fabulous because you can get away with so much more than summer would allow; for example pair those jellies with a floral dress to mix that tough weathered look with a petite style.
The Main Event Has No Expectations
When it comes down the main event of rainy day fashions, 2012 offers a lot of new styles and tones to work with. Opt for darker tones if you find it coming down too hard outside because you can fake it; darker clothes are not wet in a way that is immediately apparent. Another reason brighter bottoms are at a disadvantage – water and dirt equals mud and that on bright clothing shows up brighter than a 4th of July celebration. Another important aspect to consider with rainy fashions is that you’re not only going to want to layer up for practical reason but it can be aesthetically pleasing at the same time; experimentation is encouraged and all bets are off. With these considerations in mind, it would take a hurricane to blow over your rainy fashions.
