I wish every day could be a sunny one. Unfortunately, this is not the case. When I look outside my window on a hot summer day and see rain falling, I’m at a loss for what to wear. I hate to cover up my entire outfit with a rain jacket, but I don’t want to get wet either.
During the summer, the last thing you want to do is pile layer upon layer to keep yourself dry. So I have compiled a few rainy-day outfit ideas for inspiration and guidance.
One of my favorite things to do for rainy-day style is add a pop of color. I like to wear a monochromatic outfit and then add bold fuchsia or red lipstick. High-waist shorts and a crop top will keep you cool, while rain boots and an umbrella keep you dry!
This look was designed without an umbrella in mind, because sometimes carrying around a bulky umbrella is not ideal for your plans. If the day is a little cooler (or you just want to keep your legs dry), you might opt for a pair of jeans. A basic white tee will prevent you from overheating and provides the perfect base for a statement necklace and a colorful raincoat. Slip on your rain boots and complete the look with a bold watch.
Don’t forget that your umbrella can act as an accessory! Choose one with a cute pattern or a bright color to accentuate your outfit. This black skater dress and denim vest go perfectly with a pair of red rain boots and a gold belt.
This outfit is perfect for a day when you’re not absolutely sure it’s going to rain. A weather report that calls for scattered thunderstorms or a chance of rain poses a problem. I hate wearing rain boots if it doesn’t rain, so I choose shoes that have a closed toe and are made from anything but cloth or real leather. I usually stick with faux-leather patent flats. (Don’t forget to slip an umbrella into your bag, just in case.)
