Rain, rain go away come again…like, NEVER!

We’d only JUST started to get used to having our pins out, wearing sandals and eating ice cream practically. Every. Day.

So because the weather man doesn’t want to spoil us TOO much we’ve been treated to a spot of – you guessed it – rain. FFS*

And while we MIGHT have to temporarily ditch our shorts and sandals, we’re going to make darn sure we see out this rain in style.

We’ve rounded up the best fashion buys to help you beat the showers AND keep you looking on fleek in the process. Have it, weather man!

1. Nica snake print bag, £45

A flap over bag with an inner zip will help you keep your belongs secure and dry. And the snake print is bang on trend too, natch.

2. Darling printed shirt, £45

A lightweight shirt will keep you cool in muggy weather, while the button up style will prevent rain droplets from dripping down your neck. Ewww.

 3. F+F at Tesco Trench, £39

There’s a reason why trench coats have been around forevah – they’re shower proof, figure flattering, the stone shade means it works for any season AND the timeless style means it’ll never date. Plus it’s only 39 squid. #winning

 4. F+F at Tesco culottes, £18

Ditch the flares – they’re a right mare in the rain. Instead opt for the OTHER hottest trouser trend of the year: culottes. They won’t drag in puddles, they’ll keep their shape and if the sun decides to appear the cropped style means you’ll still look summery.

5. Fulton umbrella, £18

It’s raining – you need an umbrella. The Queen has this exact one. Nuff said.

6. Linea at House of Fraser camel coat, £169

Layering up doesn’t mean you have to go the whole hog. This sleeveless coat will provide extra coverage, but won’t add any bulk. It looks just as great with jeans as it does with pretty dresses.

7. Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish in Orange Attack, £2.99

Because when we’re at our desks at work, at least a bright mani will make us feel all summery. Anyone for a Solero?

8. New Look sheer rain mac, £22.99

This sheer rain mac means you can keep dry and show off your outfit at the same time. We’re laughing in the weather man’s face by wearing shorts and a crop top underneath. LOL.

9. New Look pineapple clutch, £12.99

Pina Colada’s contain pineapple. People drink Pina Colada’s on the beach. When it’s sunny. Just saying.

10. Office patent boots, £85

Don’t get cold feet (or wet ones, for that matter) ward off those pesky puddles with these waterproof boots. They’re cooler than novelty wellies. Just.

11. Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara Waterproof in Blackest Black, £9.99

Do one, panda eyes! Our eye make up will stay perfectly intact with this waterproof mascara of dreams. Rain? What rain?

*For fashion’s sake, obvs.
