Come Rain or Shine

We don’t know about you but, here at Debenhams, we’re finding it incredibly difficult to know what to pick out of our wardrobes on a morning. If we see sunshine upon wakening we head for the flip flops, only to find our feet wet before we even reach the bus stop. Opt for our winter coat, and we’re practically fainting from the heat before we make it to the office. The only thing for it is to shop… and make sure we’re fully prepared – come rain or shine…

In times of this inter-changeable weather, the only cover up that will do is a mac. A light, yet waterproof, coat this is one option that won’t have us suffering in the humidity, but will protect us from the raindrops. Given that the rain tends to be dull and grey, we suggest choosing a colourful trench coat, and pray it isn’t the only bright and beautiful thing we see this summer…

When the clouds come into play, the air can catch a chill. Make sure you don’t though, by always carrying a gorgeous piece of knitwear, ready to jazz up your outfit and keep you warm. The fabulous thing about knitwear is that it can easily be thrown into a bag, and straight onto you without worrying too much about wrinkles. Soft and discreetly patterned knitwear is best for this – go for holey options, or knitwear with a woven pattern to add just enough detail to hide the creases. Again, as with macs, go for coloured, candy tones for something cheery on a cold summer’s day.

As bad as the weather has been so far this season, there have been occasional moments when the rays have peeked through the clouds, giving us time to soak up the sun and sit in the park. Next time this happens, make sure you’re ready to take off that mac or jumper and reveal a dazzling day dress underneath. With florals, mirror images and mosaic patterns big for summer at Debenhams, it seems such a shame not to show ‘em off while we can…

… Come rain or shine.
