The city might be gloomy and the skies might be gray, but it doesn’t mean you should look sad and dull. Don’t let rainy days get you down with these stylish, weather-appropriate essentials.
Keep warm and dry
On days that are cold and drizzling, Uniqlo has a lineup of jackets and parkas to keep wearers warm and dry.
True to its LifeWear philosophy, each piece from the Japanese retailer’s outerwear collection is made with the best fit and fabrics to offer superior comfort. Functionality and style come together to cater to different personalities.
Men can choose from Jersey Lined Field Parka or Washed Work Jacket.
Light and versatile, Uniqlo’s Jersey Lined Field Parka is perfect for outdoor activities. It’s made of cotton-like material, hence it’s breathable and soft to the touch. The jacket is available in variety of colors, and goes well with a casual shirt, collared top, or long sleeve shirt.
For added structure and form, the Washed Work Jacket, with its timeless design and cut, helps transition a casual outfit to a work-ready ensemble. It’s best paired with a crew neck T-shirt and colored pants combination.
For women, Uniqlo offers Oversized Parka, Cotton Ribbed Blouson, and Corduroy Oversized Jacket.
Ideal for travel or everyday wear, the roomy Oversized Parka is made of cotton-polyester blend and designed with gussets under the sleeves.
The Cotton Ribbed Blouson, on the other hand, features a relaxed and on-trend fit, great for casual days of watching movies or hanging out with friends. It is made of 100 percent pre-softened cotton.
For added personality and style, the Corduroy Oversized Jacket boasts a subtle vintage style—thanks to pre-washing—and stretch material for unrestricted movement. The rounded cocoon silhouette capped off with a handy pocket makes this jacket an ultimate go-to for weekend getaways.
Wash and wear (then wash again)
Rain puddles are not only the shoes’ enemy during monsoon season, but the more bothersome foe is also mud—and no one wants to subject their prized footwear to that.
A solution to this problem: shoes that are extremely easy to clean. Rain puddles and mud on Sperry’s latest collection of washable sneakers can be easily washed thanks to premium uppers; soil dirt can be easily wiped clean.
It features a removable contoured footbed for comfort, the brand’s signature Wave-Siping outsole for grip, and the iconic sneaker silhouette.
Captain’s CVO Washable for men is made of breathable premium nubuck leather and comes with durable polyester laces and rust-proof eyelets. Each pair boasts ultra-lightweight, flexible rubber outsole to keep feet comfortable all throughout the day.
Also easily washable are Sperry’s CVO Washable Sneakers for women. Its pastel color looks good on almost any outfits for various style adventures, while its practical features can surpass the test of time.
Perfect even during a storm
Local cosmetics label Careline lets young women “slay” even on rainy days with its suite of makeup products. Here’s a guide to achieving an edgy look:
Keep makeup in place and minimize appearance of pores with Careline Blur Stick. After creating a clean canvas, use the Oil Control Liquid Makeup to achieve a natural finish and flawless-looking skin for hours. Finish off the base with Oil Control Face Powder which helps absorb excess oil on the skin.
Get that coveted rosy glow by using Oil Control Blush-on, a blendable and buildable product. Then, define the eye area, first with Best Brow Liner that comes in two shades: taupe and brunette; and then with Graph-Ink Liner that boasts a smudge-proof and waterproof formula.
Finish the look with the pigmented Careline Matte Liquid Lipstick, whose formula provides hours of comfort without the drying feeling.
