What to Wear When It's Hot and Rainy

Summer is our ideal season. Let me rephrase that: when it's sunny, clear, and we're sitting by the seaside with our friends, summer is our ideal season. When sweltering summer days come with a heatwave warning, or a massive grey cloud brings surprise stormy weather, that's another thing entirely — and it's a particularly hard thing to dress for.

I once got caught in a downpour wearing wide leg trousers and boots on a sticky day in the city, and barely lived to tell the tale. So, live and learn. Now, I've made it a personal mission to track down some outfits that are heatwave and rainy day friendly, as well as pinpoint six things that absolutely are not. Soak up the inspiration, pack a fan, or an umbrella — and stay stylish!
