How to Look Good on a Rainy Day

Choose a tight or curly hairstyle. Your hair is the most important aspect of your outfit when it comes to rain and humidity. Your hair style should either be tightly pulled into a ponytail or a bun. Depending on your hair’s texture, you may want to add a dehumidifying cream or silkening product so your hair does not become frizzy. Frizz is not your friend. Another fashionable way to wear your air on a rainy day is wet and curly. If your hair curls or waves when it’s wet, go for it. Just remember to use a curl intensifying moisturizer so that when your hair dries, it won’t look hard and dry.

Avoid getting your hair wet in the first place by using a cute umbrella. Choose an umbrella that matches your stature; don't let it overwhelm your body. Match the umbrella to your rain coat and your accessories or play it safe and choose a neutral color that will go with everything.

Appear fashi
onable in a rain, or trench, coat. Choose seasonal colors, such as yellow or white, for the spring and summer, and red or chocolate brown for the fall. A long rain coat looks great in the fall when combined with skinny jeans and rain boots.

Wear rain boots. They're not just for your little brother. Rain boots are great for accessorizing rainy day attire. Use rain boots to accent your other items, such as your rain coat. If you choose an all black rain coat, wear hounds-tooth designed rain boots. Don't wear designs that clash.

Don't forget the handbag. Choose a handbag that is made out of leather instead of canvas. Water can penetrate through canvas. Use a handbag with a zipper to prevent water from getting into your bag.

Use waterproof make-up. Wear waterproof mascara and eyeliner, to prevent running if your face gets wet.
