What to Wear During a Summer Storm
And not end up a sweaty mess
Rain: Not so great. Oppressive heat: Pretty sucky, too. Rain that coincides with oppressive heat: Is this what hell is like?
On these kinds of days, we’re often at a loss for what to wear. The balance between cool and waterproof isn’t an easy one to strike. Luckily, we found a few magical pieces that will make a stormy, 100-degree day much more bearable.
a bag bag
If you must use a water-unfriendly bag, throw it into a waterproof Baggu while you?re outside.
A Breezy Frock
Try to wear something that hits above the knee. No offense to umbrellas, but they kind of leave calves high and not dry. A cotton racerback dress is a great hot-weather option, and is office-appropriate when topped with a blazer. (Once you’re indoors, of course.)
