If you live in the British isles, we’re sure you’ll have noticed that it hasn’t stopped raining now for, ooh, about 50 years, give or take.
Not only is this pretty depressing for those of us who live here, it also creates all kinds of sartorial issues, so for today’s Pick of the Day, we present you with this emerald green shower-proof trench coat from F&F. The classic trench coat never goes out of style (that’s why it’s a classic, obviously), but if beige is too boring for you, the bright green of this coat will brighten your day – and if you don’t fancy that, perhaps the bright red will be more to your liking? (And it also comes in beige, just in case you really DO prefer to keep it classic…)
This doesn’t have a hood, so you’ll also need this heart-print umbrella – and maybe a pair of glitter wellies, too. (Don’t worry, they’re subtle enough for you to still feel like a grown-up while you’re wearing them…)
Of course, once you’ve got the outerwear sorted, you can wear pretty much anything you like underneath. We’ve picked this polka dot wrap dress from Uttam Boutique, just because we like it (It also helps that it’s the kind of dress you can wear to work AND out for drinks afterwards…), and because we’re pretty sure you’re not going to want to walk around in your wellies all day, we’ve also included a bag large enough for you to pop your regular shoes into, so you can wear them later.
None of this will change the weather, of course: we’re The Fashion Police, not God. But if it’s going to keep on raining anyway – and it very much looks like it is, unfortunately – you may as well look good, and have a bit of fun in the process, no?
