Waterproofing your Wardrobe – Wearing your rain jacket with style

A downpour of rain doesn’t have to be the end of your gorgeous outfit and up-do, just as a raincoat doesn’t have to be the end of your fashion statement. Gone are the days of oversized yellow coats – there are heaps of gorgeous colours and styles available. Incorporate a cool rain slicker into your look for watertight style that’ll keep you warm and dry.

The Bright is Right Look

: Orange sweater, blue raincoat, grey skinny jeans, silver chain necklace and orange-blue weave ballet flats Pick complementary colours to keep the mood away from the cold weather. Brights are best with two of either your top/sweater, pants and raincoat being intense colours and the third being more subdued. Tie the colours together with matching shoes.
