We all know how unpredictable the weather can be. It can go from glorious sunshine to torrential rain and thunderstorms in the blink of an eye. Knowing what to wear each day can be challenging as we can never guarantee what the weather will be like throughout. We’ve all had times when we’ve worn a light summer dress, thinking it looks warm and sunny outside. Only to find a few hours later that our outfit choice is not ideal when rain and high winds appear. It can be incredibly frustrating. Thankfully all we need is a few essential pieces that look good and suit all weather conditions. Here are some items that are perfect, come rain or shine.
Oversized scarves have always been a top fashion accessory, and it’s not hard to see why. They can be in solid colors or fun patterns. They can be worn in a number of different but stylish ways, for both a formal or laid back feel. But more importantly, they add practicality, which is why they are an essential all weather item. You can wear your oversized scarf on vacation to act as a coverup to protect you from the sun’s rays. Or you can wear it around your neck and head to stop you from getting soaked or cold when the weather takes a turn for the worst. Choose a medium weight, oversized scarf that complements the other items in your wardrobe. This will ensure it looks good with anything and can be worn, whatever the weather is like.
Sweaters are a brilliant wardrobe essential that can easily be worn all year round. You can wear one by itself in the spring or summer, with shorts or a skirt. If the sweater you choose is light enough, it shouldn’t cause you to overheat. In winter, sweaters are a fabulous layering item. You can wear them over shirts or long sleeve tops and under leather or denim jackets. They also look brilliant with jeans or trousers, both of which can also be worn in hot or cold weather. Look for the best sweaters you can afford to ensure they last.
The trench coat has become an iconic item of clothing that every fashionista must own. This is primarily due to it being such a functional item. Again, you can layer it with other items in cooler weather to keep you warm. Whereas in summer, it acts as a light protective jacket that can be worn with anything. From a suit to a floaty dress, the classic trench coat suits a multitude of outfits. Black and tan colors are often the most popular, but you can also find them in more contemporary colors such as reds and greens. Invest in a top quality trench and if you take care of it, it will last you a lifetime.
Regardless of whether the weather looks like, these wardrobe essentials will keep you looking chic and fabulous. Keep them in your car or handbag so you can grab them as and when you need them.
