1. Avoid frizzy hair
If it’s raining before you go out, put an anti-frizz cream or anti-humidity styling product in your hair. Set your style with hairspray.
Try to pull your hair out of your face if you can. When it’s wet, it will look limp and stringy if it’s down.
If you have long hair, consider wearing it up in a bun. Or, you could tightly braid it, however this is only good if you have extra long hair. You can also wear a nice cap or hat to keep your hair protected from the rain
2. Wear the right make up
If you think you might get your face wet, here are a few changes to make to your normal make up routine. Wear waterproof mascara to avoid dripping panda eyes
Don’t put a lot of color on your eyelids – it could look weird if your face gets wet and the make up runs off. Instead, opt for colors that are close to your natural skin tone. If you have waterproof eye-liner, wear it. If not, don’t wear any eye-liner at all.
You can skip the blush if you want to – being out in the weather will probably make your cheeks flush anyway.
3. Dress appropriately for the weather
If it rains a lot where you live, you probably have some of these items on-hand already. If not, you can try to make do with what you have or pick them up after you leave the house.
Here are the essentials:
Wear a good trench coat in a classic color. A quality trench should cover you adequately without making you look like you’re wearing a shapeless bag. If it has a hood, that’s even better.
Put rubber boots on your feet. A cute pair of boots can instantly brighten a rainy-day outfit. Find them in a cute (but mature) print that goes with your trench coat, or buy them in a solid color such as black. You can wear pants over your boots, or tuck them in.
4. Don’t wear too fancy shoes
Remember not to wear any shoes that are expensive or important.
If the weather is cold, wear a scarf. Like your boots, a scarf can liven up your outfit. Pick a bold print that you like, or go with a quieter color. Either way, it should look good next to your hair and skin tone.
If you don’t have a coat and are planning on getting wet, avoid clothing that’s white or too sheer. These items will end up being see-through when they get wet, and it doesn’t make for a classy or mature look.
5.Carry an umbrella
Take an umbrella with you. If it’s not too windy outside, grab an umbrella as you go out the door. You can buy one in an eye-catching print, a simple solid color, or clear plastic.
6. Keep a sunny attitude
No matter what you’re wearing, you’ll stand out in the rain if you can manage to smile and be happy in your dismal surroundings. Embrace the day, and don’t worry too much about getting wet – your smile will make up for any shortcomings in your outfit.
