Weatherproof Your Work Wear: Style Tips For The Rainy Days

While we’re beginning to remember what rainfall and a cool breeze feels like, it might not be long until the weather plays its tricks on us again and brings us back to the heatwave we've been experiencing the last few weeks. It can be bright and sunny in the morning, and come afternoon, it can get pretty darned rainy—spell unpredictable!

We know you might be wondering: How can one stay sane while planning her wardrobe (especially work-appropriate outfits) during this fickle weather season? Allow us to help you with these easy style tips and outfit inspirations you can rock even after office hours.

 

1. A rainy day calls for a lazy day

On days when you just want to look like you’ve put too much effort on your outfit but don’t really have the will to do so, a midi sweater dress is your best friend. Wear it with a waist belt for a sleeker look.

 

2. Full blown powerhouse

By now we all know that the blazer and trouser combo is the ultimate work wear staple but it’s definitely not good for the commute. Quick tip: Cropped trousers and leather boots are the way to go. It will give your office attire a much needed style boost without having to worry about getting your feet or the hem of your pants wet once you step into a puddle.

 

3. Sweater weather but make it fasyon!

Much like the blazer and trouser pairing, pencil skirts will always be a workwear wardrobe must-have. Instead of the usual button down blouse, pair this with your favorite cozy knit to keep you warm on a cold afternoon.
