With the sun starting to rear it’s head and the summer fast approaching, you’ll want to whack on a pair of shorts and head to a pub garden to make the most of the sunshine. As we know though, the weather can be unpredictable, often changing from one minute to the next. Prepare yourself for the unexpected showers this Spring with some practical accessories that don’t lack in the style department. From water resistant jackets to splash-proof shoes, you’ll be sorted from head to toe, seeing you all the way through the rainy season.

Under Your Umbrella

An umbrella is a rainy weather essential, and can actually make a stylish addition to your outfit. For any business look, opt for a sleek black design with a hook handle, such as this one from Paul Smith. If you’re planning any country walks in the rain, a delightfully British tartan umbrella from Barbour will keep you dry throughout.

Cover Up

Layer up in the wet weather to stay dry this season. This mac jacket and hat set from Herno will certainly help you brave the elements, whilst looking stylish in the process. A water resistant gilet is ideal as the weather begins to heat up, as you can stay dry without becoming too warm, making them perfect for any casual off duty look.

Shoe Gaze

When it comes to footwear in the rain, you’ll want to avoid canvas and suede. Unless the sky is falling, you’ll be able to get away with a pair of leather trainers for any casual look, or boots if it’s more of a smart casual occasion. If it’s a warmer day and you’re due some light drizzle, a pair of waterproof rubber loafers will make the perfect rainy day choice.

Put A Hat On It

A hat is the best way to avoid any wet hair disasters from a light rain fall. Whilst they don’t offer the most protection for the wet weather, they will certainly do a good job of keeping your head dry, and can add a colourful touch to your daytime look. A bucket hat is also a great choice for festivals, who are often struck with an inevitable down pour, as they’ll keep your hair dry whilst looking cool and casual.
