Greetings Barbarians! Long days and pleasant nights!
It’s either sunny or rainy here in the Philippines. When it’s sunny, it is humid and when it rains, it pours. The weather has always been a tough obstacle to get around when it comes to style. One must maintain a level of practicality while keeping it dandy. But if you’re like me who likes to keep it stylish regardless of the weather then this month’s outfit is for you.
Philippine summertime has now passed, and storm season is now in. Goodbye sweaty icky feeling and hello cold and wet feet. Honestly, I want to curl up in bed or read a good book with a warm cup of coffee in hand during the rainy days. But we all know that being a man is so much more than that, it is about doing what needs to be done – and look great doing it.
So, in my efforts to be more stylish and ready for any weather, I curated a rainy-day outfit for June. Ideal for those rainy office days or evening dates, so if you’re ready then let’s get down to it.
The key to wet weather style is functionality, skip the leather sole shoes with rubber. Rubber sole shoes offer more traction on wet surfaces than leather sole shoes. Another thing to consider is the material and construction. I dislike wearing canvass sneaker in the rain, as it has the tendency to let water in and soak my feet. I usually opt for a waterproof boot to keep my feet dry. It may cost much but it is money well spent, especially if you live where the only weather is either sunny or rainy.
Jeans are excellent wet weather piece. They are versatile with the limited options you have for the rainy days. They are durable and never goes out of style. Dark washed jeans are great at hiding damp areas, debris or mud you will come across during rainy seasons. Go for a great fit with not much excess fabric to avoid getting soaked too much.
A clean casual shirt can elevate any style even in bad weather. Avoid bright colors and choose muted color that goes with the season like white, grey, navy blue and olive. Rainy season is also an excellent time for layering, so choose a shirt with a crisp collar when going for layers.
Speaking of layers, a great sweater is an excellent layer option. Sweaters are great in keeping you warm and toasty during rainy seasons. Again, avoid bright and loud colors like yellow, red or orange. Consider the type of fabric, avoid cotton during the rainy days. Cotton absorbs moisture and gets wet against your skin, making it uncomfortable.
Finally, a great sport jacket. Sport jackets are great in any type of weather. Go for a structured and lined sport coat for the rainy days as it offers a better protection. I love a great sport jacket; it makes you look trimmer and it broadens your shoulder. It puts the cherry on top with any outfit.
A great umbrella is a no brainer during the rainy days and can also be a great style piece. Go for a traditional umbrella with a handle that’s not plastic. It is also a great chance to splash a little bit of color like a deep burgundy or a different pattern like checks.
There’s nothing more irritating than being wet and cold. Rainy days are not a good excuse not to be your best self. It’s a challenge that is solved with a little mindfulness and creativity. Looking good while keeping yourself dry is tough during a rainy day but it’s not impossible.
A great man is a master of all conditions, he is ready as you expect him to be. He carries an umbrella when there’s a chance of rain and carries a light when there’s a chance of darkness. He keeps his composure even when things don’t go his way. He sees every chance as an opportunity to be a better version of himself, rain or shine – and he looks good doing it.
So, there you have it, our outfit of June – I hope you liked it! By the way, I would like to thank those who took their time to DM me on twitter. I appreciate it, especially those telling me how much they love the outfit. I love interacting with you guys, you guys rock! More power to you and thank you so much!
