The Ultimate Survival Guide For A Rainy Summer Day

The Ultimate Survival Guide For A Rainy Summer Day

The unpredictability of the British weather has lived up to its name this summer. Glorious sunshine is soon followed by a heavy downpour leaving many unprepared and drenched. It is a difficult time to dress with many unsure of what to wear when leaving the house. The scorching summer morning can easily turn into a dreary afternoon so it is essential to be prepared.

Summer demands a kind of survival kit to get through each day as relying solely on the weather report is not a good idea. The temperature remains high even when the heavens begin to open leaving many sprinting for cover.

With hopefully a few weeks left of the humid climate, we’ve gathered a list to guide you through to avoid getting soaked on the school run!

  • Carry an umbrella in your bag at all times. You will be thankful when the showers set in.
  • Find a bag that is large enough to store the essentials. A backpack is a great alternative as it spreads the weight to avoid sore shoulders.
  • Layer lightweight, fine items that can easily be removed when the sun begins to shine.
  • Do not be tempted to wear heavy fabrics such as denim and wool as when wet are difficult to dry. WARNING! It may cause you to overheat!
  • Invest in a stylish raincoat that is breathable and lightweight. When caught in a heavy downpour you will be grateful of a layer to shelter under. Pick one that compliments your outfit.
  • Try to avoid light colours such as white and grey. White may become transparent and grey shows sweat marks – not a good look! Both could cause a little amount of embarrassment. Bold, bright colours are a great solution.
  • Leave the sandals at home on a rainy day and opt for a sturdy shoe with a non slip sole. A leather trainer may be the answer.
