Umbrella

An umbrella is the first thing you need in order to escape the rains wetting you up. It is a shield from the water-pelting clouds. Make sure you have a strong and sturdy umbrella. But see to it that it is not boring to look at. Therefore, try to buy stylish umbrellas. Transparent ones, black or colourful blues and greens with polka dots, digital patterns on it make the umbrella suave and stylish. Try and avoid old umbrellas and no Mickey Mouse ears jutting out of the rain saviour please. It looks a way bit taddy.

Footwear

On a rainy day, what matters most apart from an umbrella is the right pair of footwear. Stylish waterproof footwear or Slip-resistant shoes are therefore a must. Gum boots and rubber canvas shoes are a great idea as they don’t pose a challenge unlike leather-based or suede shoes that can make your heart fail the moment they get wet. Try bright colours such as neons or pastels so that you don’t kill your eagerness to flaunt good shoes in rainy season. And yes, don’t go for flip flops in the rainy weather. You might end up slipping, falling and losing balance and end up feeling embarrassed.

Clothes

Come rains and most of us are likely to fall a fashion victim to the downpour wetting our starched clothes. Wear comfortable clothes in cotton, denim in dark colours. Avoid wearing synthetic clothes as they will make you feel sticky and humid once they get wet. On the colour front, more whites and spring yellows you wear, more are they likely to get stained by the rainy mud.

  • Buy extra lingerie when it rains. It takes time for used bra and panties to get dry in rains.
  • Carry extra pair of shoes and Bermudas with you when you are travelling. If you get wet to the skin, there is something to fall back on.
  • Beware of pesky potholes and overflowing manholes.
  • Seepage is a common problem in rainy weather. Fill the wet spots with Plaster Of Paris to fill the cracks. Paint your home only after monsoons end.
