The first few things that you must head to the store for before it rains are an umbrella and a rain coat. They are products designed specifically for use when it rains and they tend to be indispensable for their users during those times. They may not protect you from head to toe, but they will be able to protect at least half of your body from the lashing rains. Carrying an umbrella or wearing a raincoat should not be considered fashion taboos. They are practical and are considered as fashion accessories. Pick a raincoat and umbrella of the color and pattern you want. It won’t take much time to find any of your choice. Choose colorful ones that contrast with the gloomy, sun-less sky. You and your raincoat or umbrella will definitely turn many approving heads. If you aren’t in favour of raincoats made of plastic, you can always opt for trench coats. The timeless classics will never make you look out-of-place. Trench coats can be worn even during autumn and during winter. Go buy yourself a nice trench coat.
For footwear, be wise and avoid those made of leather or even faux leather, if you care about them. A drenched leather shoe will stiffen or just never retain its original good looks. The safe and intelligent options are rubber boots or ballerina flats. They come in pretty colors and patterns to cater to the needs of fashionistas, who are never disappointed by their designs. You can get boots that are knee-high, calf length or even ankle length. They do a great job of protecting your feet from remaining immersed in rain water and keep your pedicured nails clean and intact. Even designer rubber boots have become a rage among celebrities who don them with almost every outfit, from short dresses to shorts to jeans, anything.
