Fashion Ideas That Will Keep You Dry and In-Style This Bangkok Rainy Season
We often see the street fashion photos of all the international celebrities, models, and fashion icons caught in their dashing raincoats and umbrellas while looking all too well-prepared for the rainy sidewalk. Here’s a secret, those accessories didn’t just happen to match up with their clothes, bags, and shoes, but they’ve all been thought of and prepped long before!
Thailand officially steps into monsoon season every May-October, and that makes rain protection a necessity. You never know when there will be a drizzle or a full-on storm each day, so most of us just carry around what fits in our bags for convenience. Little do we know that these functional items can actually upgrade your rainy day looks to a whole new level.
If you haven’t figured out how to add raincoats and umbrellas to your fashion line-up just yet, we’ve got for you some fashion ideas for the rainy season that can easily be adapted to your daily life in the city.
Don’t let the rain wash away all the fun you can have with choosing your outfit and accessories in the morning. It’s time to keep dry and in-style for the Bangkok monsoon season!
It’s time to throw out those cheap convenience store plastic raincoats and invest in an actual fashion raincoat for the rainy season. Being sewn from high-quality materials like Gore-Tex or Tyvek, you know that these stylish raincoats will be with you for years to come. Both Thai and international fashion brands have been releasing more modish raincoats out to their stores where you can choose from all kinds of styles including coats, jackets, transparent, hoodies, and many more. While these options are sure to cost up to 10 times more than the disposable ones, getting hold of them will sure to keep you looking chic in the rain for years to come.
Getting your clothes wet from the rain is one thing, but getting your beloved shoes soaked in rainwater (especially the muddy puddles on the sidewalk) will just ruin your day. If you happen to be wearing sneakers or cut shoes made from leather, denim, satin, or canvas during the pour, then you know they’ll have to be shelved for a good long while. Some of those shoes have claimed to be waterproof, getting those shoes drenched will surely shorten their lifespan. We recommend turning your attention to shoes made materials like rubber and plastic that are absolutely waterproof and are easy to clean. There are also leather and fabric shoes that have been layered with waterproof spray as well. Other than being easy to shop for, you’ll never have to worry about your lovely shoes getting worn out again this rainy season.
During the rainy days, one thing that you should never forget before leaving your house is the umbrella. We often think of the umbrella as a functional tool, but in the fashion sense, it is just as important as your purse or shoes. Imagine yourself putting together an outfit of the same style and color tone, but once you grab your non-matching umbrella, everything you’ve worked on all morning falls apart. Wouldn’t it be better to get an umbrella that matches your outfit? You’ll definitely look more well-prepared and fashionable.
