The last thing you want on a steamy day is to be stuck in a pair of skintight jeans. A boxy shift or jersey A-line dress is a must when the going gets muggy.
Instead, look for one that’s lightweight and made from breathable canvas. We’re particularly fond of this style from Boden with its jersey lining and poppy color.
For days when it?s just too hot to even move (let alone put on clothes), look to Rainraps. These reversible ponchos fall lightly over your shoulders and come equipped with a hood for maximum hair protection.
Just because you?re wearing a raincoat doesn?t mean you have to look like Inspector Gadget. We love that this Kate Spade Saturday number integrates the trendy crop-top style with rainy-day functionality.
Kate Spade Saturday ($160)
Behold your greatest purchase of the summer. They’re fun (never frumpy) and fit right in your purse for the times when Mother Nature goes ballistic.
Forgo the itchy, calf-sweating situation and scoop up short rain booties instead. Your wellies will do just fine in your closet until September.
Loeffler Randall ($195)
Though they won’t keep you 100 percent dry, jelly sandals are pretty great for when the temp rises above 90 degrees.
They?re bulky, they break and you?re constantly losing them. News flash: Ya still need ?em. To help curb those common grievances, go for an umbrella that?s compact and light but still well made.
This is not the time to break out your brand-new leather tote. A bright nylon bag will repel water just as easily as your umbrella does.
Humid weather means crazy frizz. Instead of battling the beast, throw your locks up with a bright fabric band. These babies will keep the humidity from creasing your hair--and will even add a little color to an otherwise dreary day.

Combating sweat on a hot summer day is one thing. Add a thunderstorm to the mix and that’s a whole ’nother story. (Sticky plastic raincoat, you’re the worst!)
What’s a gal to do?
For starters, immediately ditch the knee-high wellies.
