What To Wear On A Rainy Day
You don’t have to wait for April showers to sport this humble trend. Thanks to the likes of Saint Laurent and Prada, anoraks are firmly back in the sartorial zeitgeist and this season’s offerings are by no means a slave to utility. Whether you opt for Hunter’s futuristic structuring or go all-out green lantern in Tory Burch; there’s no reason to feel frumpy as you navigate the puddles.
Though the skies may indicate otherwise, summer is fast approaching. But before you allow your wardrobe to descend into identity crisis, consult Vogue‘s in-between dressing guide where staples like trench coats to midi skirts will provide the coddling comfort you crave from muggy afternoons and dreary skies. So don’t fret as we leave spring behind and move (at a glacial pace) towards warmer climes: when it comes to seasonal limbo, we’ve got you covered.
What better way to brighten a drizzly day than with iridescent flashes of mood-boosting hues? From Gucci’s striking sweater to River Island’s fabulously frilly shorts – forget the rain and chase the rainbow with these joyous pieces.
There’s nothing worse than having to bury a meticulously-planned A* outfit underneath the hangings of a grisly raincoat that’s as dismal as the weather. Thankfully, there are plenty of eye-catching options this season to brighten your look. Whether it’s luxuriant velvet at Luisa Beccaria; intricate jacquard at H&M or Batwoman-worthy vinyl at Balenciaga; there’s a statement to suit all tastes. Because when the coat’s all that’s on show, you’re sartorially obliged to make it a good’un.
Once reserved for librarians and other conscientious creatures, the self-effacing cardigan has been revitalised for summer. Worn pastels and itching wools have been switched in for eccentric prints, dazzling crystals and eye-popping brights. Perfect for keeping you covered in spontaneous streams of rain, this season’s cardigans don’t shy away from attention, they demand it.
