During rainy season here in Nigeria, the rain pops up at any time and almost always catches you off guard. Planning on wearing those gorgeous flare pants and your beaded sandals? Lol, think again! But don’t despair because whether or not it rains, you don’t have to sacrifice you fashion as well. The weather can look gloomy and sad but you don’t have to. Here are some necessities to help you be fashion ready throughout the season.
A Cute Umbrella: I find it very difficult going around holding a large umbrella. It’s hard to always have your hands full. What works most times are those cute fold-able umbrellas that fit right into your handbag. And guess what- they’re nice and portable so you can just keep them in your bag at all times. With that, you can never be caught unawares when it starts to pour.
Waterproof Makeup: I know going round with it seems over the top but if you can’t achieve this the least you could do is go without makeup. No one wants to see you all drenched with drooping makeup. Not a nice sight.
Careful Shoe Choices: No one wants to get their good leather shoes soaked in water. The first choice for a rainy day will always be rain boots and I must say there are very fashionable ones. For me, I hate going around with slippers in my bags but that always helps. Another option would be to wear glossy shoes that allows the water to slip right off.
A Jacket: The weather becomes a bit cold when it’s rainy right? I think your best bet would be a jacket. Be careful not to pair it with an outfit that will make you sweaty when the temperature goes up a bit.
Don’t give up during the wet season. If you want to be fabulous, you can achieve that no matter the time of the year.
