Let’s face it, here in the UK getting caught in the rain is inevitable – even in the middle of summer. Don’t just put up with the ‘wet dog’ look! We have put together a guide to show you how to stay dry, whilst still looking good when the heavens decide to open. Here are our top tips…

1. Invest in a jacket that will keep you dry

The easiest and most stylish item of clothing to keep you dry and looking stylish in the rain is a hooded, waterproof jacket. They are the perfect versatile piece to accompany any outfit as you can find many smart and casual styles. If you go for a thinner jacket or buy a size larger than usual, you’ll be able to fit a jumper underneath for extra warmth.

2. Find the right footwear

I know what you’re thinking and no, the only waterproof footwear available is not wellies. Whilst wellies might be good for festivals and other outdoor activities, you want something versatile, easy on the eye and comfortable for every day wear. Timberland boots offer all of these traits in one.

3. Opt for a hat

Already own a jacket you love but it doesn’t have a hood? There’s no need to get soaked when you get caught in the rain – Just buy a hat. You may be thinking that a lot of hats aren’t waterproof, but they can be with plenty of waterproof spray.
