Living in New York can sometimes be a fashion nightmare, due to the mild rain showers in summer. With 90 degree days followed with rain, choosing an outfit that is fashionable yet one that gets you through a wet day can be particularly difficult. Here are 5 fashion tips that will help you get through the hot, rainy days.
Breathable fabrics – Breathable fabrics are a closet staple. Look for linen and cotton or blends with a little lycra for stretch. These fabrics will keep you cool and dry during the wet summer months.
A raincoat – Raincoats are a must, and now some in cool colours, with belts and button detailing. Go for a plain single colour or a striped rain coat. Look for ones that are lightweight and are lined with a cotton fabric. Easily foldable rain coats that come in a case are an added bonus.
An Umbrella – If a raincoat is not your thing, choose a fashion-forward umbrella. You could choose a classic black with a wooden handle or bubble transparent umbrella.
A trench dress – If carrying around outerwear is troublesome, choose a trench dress. This will give you the same benefits of staying dry without the extra layer.
Open toe shoes – If the weather is hot and wet it is best to opt for a pair of open toe shoes. That way if your feet do get wet, you can dry them off easily and still stay cool when the weather heats up.
