Our top rainy day must-haves will keep you stylishly in the downpours
You've planned your outfit for the next day, and you're feeling organised for once - until you wake up in the morning, and find that it's raining. What now?! It can be tricky to know how to style out a downpour, but thankfully, this season's trends lend themselves to helping you stay stylish in any weather.
This season's trends mean that messy hair, comfy boots and longer-length dresses are all in right now - just as well, with the ever-changing British weather! Colourful macs and comfy boots will enhance your outfit and keep you dry. Just stay away from the other big trends of the season - denim and suede - as we all know that neither will fare well during a downpour!
Make sure your accessories are on-trend as well: A bright umbrella and cross-body bag are essential for making it through a rainy day with ease. Finally, finish off your new spring style with a relaxed parka and you know that you will look good this season, whatever the weather.
Ready to face the next big downpour? We've scanned the high street to find the buys that will keep you looking great no matter what the weather. Click through to start shopping, and be a savvy dresser this season...
