Styling in the Rain

What a totally miserable day, I absolutely detest rain, particularly when coupled with stormy gusts of wind - impossible to stay dry - my hair is a mess aarg. Thankfully I'm now home in the dry indoors and thought it appropriate to have another drool over my favourite rain mac of this season. It's the amazing cape detail that I love the most, coming a close second is the rich forest green hue. I'm not one for being prepared for the weather and don't own a sensible hooded raincoat, but if I did this is the one:

You are more likely to see me wearing something similar to this mac from Littlewoods. The skirt detail on this coat is perfect for adding curves to a straight up and down figure. It would look equally fab on a top heavy shape as the volumn on the lower half balances broad shoulders or busty figures.

Look what I've found, just the thing for giving your dreary weather loving wellies or boots a touch of stylish fun, check these out;

And while broosing RI's site I stumbled upon these absolutely adorable gloves, what a fabulous way to add a touch of glamour to a cosy winter look. Multi textures are a big catwalk trend this season particulary when it comes to outerwear; mixing wool, leather, tweed, fur etc.

It's too wild out at the moment to protect your hair with an umbrella but I do love this one from http://www.asos.com/ it says it all......

Don't let the weather put a stop on your style!
