Summer may be over and our problems on sweat and harsh sunlight are gone, but the weather is still against us. Now that it’s the rainy season, we’re all focused on keeping ourselves clean and dry while navigating the rain. Regardless if you’re commuting or driving your own car, you really can’t escape the possibility of getting soaked at one point, especially when it starts raining buckets.
Let us help you from this dilemma. We’ve picked out items that’ll keep you dry from head to toe, from your clothes to the makeup you need to put on. Take your pick in the list below!
Kangol Ridge Stripe Lahinch
This bucket hat is made with textured bamboo yarn knit. Based on reviews on other headwear made from this material, it gives a good balance of cool and warmth depending on the season you’re wearing it. If there’s a light drizzle, you can just throw this on and walk the streets. Available online.
H&M Short Hooded Parka
Once the wind starts blowing, it’s best to throw on a jacket, ideally one with a hood to protect yourself from the rain. This parka from H&M is made from cotton twill, has a drawstring hood, and zipped-up pockets so knickknacks will stay dry. It’s also a bit oversized, perfect for those who are into cozy pieces like this one. If you’re not feeling the khaki green color, you have four other options. Available at SM Makati.
Some of my officemates have been raving about inverted umbrellas because it keeps the wet part hidden. So you don’t have to worry about getting water stains on your clothes or getting your things accidentally. This one is double-layered and windproof, and also comes in neutral and bright colors. Available on Lazada.
LeSportsac EveryGirl Tote
LeSportsac is known for their nylon water-resistant bags. If you’re looking for one that’s spacious and will fit all your essentials, cop the EveryGirl Tote.
