Best Rainy Day Outfits and Tips to Ensure Rain Never Ruins Your Travels (1)

Repel Windproof Double Vented Travel Umbrella

Should I pack an umbrella?

When we think of a rainy day outfit, we often envision an umbrella. However, if rain is not on the horizon, don’t bring one. However, if you’re traveling to a temperate climate in thespring, the probability of it raining is higher, so bringing a compact travel umbrella is suggested but not necessary as you can always buy one in your destination if needed. If you’re looking for suggestions, read this best travel umbrellas post!

Always, alwayscheck the weather forecast before your trip. Once you’ve researched the weather, you can focus on creating a capsule travel wardrobe, which should easily fit in a carryon suitcase with the help of packing cubes to compress your clothing.

Tip: I’ve never packed an umbrella when traveling to Europe because I know they’ll be cheaply sold atany tourist location by people on the street looking to make a buck.

Whether or not to pack rain boots is always one of the biggest dilemmas when planning your rainy day outfit while traveling.

What clothing should I wear?

When deciding what to wear on a rainy day, leggings, or dresses worn over tights are always a good option. Leggings, and especially tights, dry quickly because they tend to have porous material.

Make sure to avoid cotton leggings or trousers and stick to synthetic fabrics for dresses. Jeans aren’t the best option for rain either; their thick fabric holds moisture against your skin and takes longer to dry.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

What make-up should I wear?

Even with an umbrella and the right jacket, you can’t avoid the wind blowing some water into your face. So, deciding what to wear on a rainy day also includes makeup!

Obviously, waterproof mascara is a given if you do plan to wear makeup. Tinted moisturizer is also great option because it tends to soak into your skin more than foundation which rests on the surface. This will also help avoid brown streaks dripping your face. Additionally, an all-over color stick will work better than just powdered blushes or eyeshadows.

Will the rain ruin my trip?

Of course not! Getting caught in the rain doesn’t have to put a damper on your trip. In fact, make the most of it. Purchase a brightly-colored umbrella that will stand out even in the drabbest weather or bring a lightweight raincoat is a more practical solution.

You can roll it up when you don’t need it, as demonstrated above, or store it in the bag you’re carrying. Some of those moments have been my most treasured travel photographs. Enjoy a hot bath at night, if the rain made you chilly.

Experiencing a traditional rainstorm in places such as England is all part of the cultural experience. Just make sure you carefully plan what to wear on a rainy day and bring the right gear.

Tip: Try to plan your itinerary according to the rain. For example, save museum visits and other indoor activities for rainy days and make the most of the sunshine when you can.

What to Wear on Rainy Days Outfit Ideas

Below are some examples of specific capsule wardrobe ideas for mild to heavy rain:

Best Rainy Day Outfits and Tips to Ensure Rain Never Ruins Your Travels (14)

T-Shirt | Socks | Bag | Bra |Pants| Rain Jacket |Boots

Rainy Day Outfits:Hiking or Exploring

A quality rain jacket, good hiking boots and awaterproof bag will be good to have with you. A bra made with synthetic material is also good to helpyou dry faster. (Rain and sweat! Double bonus.)

If you’re going to be outside hiking or exploring, you’ll definitely want to wear moisture-wicking pantsand socks. Having a good pair of socks that keep your feet dry, and not swampy is key.Your feet will already sweat while you hike, additional moisture can increase the likeliness of developingblisters.Make sure to purchase socks with a wool blend.

Trekking in torrential rain or snow? Pack waterproof pants and a plastic poncho as well. v

Trench | Lipstick | Tights | Dress | Bag | Earrings | Boots

Rainy Day Outfits:Light Rain

If you’rewalking to and from destinationsin light rain, a good trench coat will help to keep your outfit and hairdry.

Tights and a dress are a good option, especially if you don’t want to wear hiking pants around acity. Tights are also made of synthetic material that dry fast.

For an outfit that will take you from rain to ritzy, wear leather boots that are waterproof and style-forward. Leather boots will keep your feet dry, and will be able to withstand mud as you encounter it. You can use a water resistant spray to help keep water out and protect your shoes.

Pair with black tights and a dress that can work for both day and night. Finish it off with a waterproof trench coat and a compact umbrella that can easily fit in your purse.

You can easily roll up your rain coat into a packing cube without any issues until you need it.

Longsleeve | Leggings| Umbrella |Bag|Boots

Jeans are OK for light rain although we don’t recommend wearing them for heavy rainy days or when you’re outside in the rain for extended periods of time. Opt for leggings instead. (Wearing wet clothes in cold temperatures can cause hypothermia.) Learn about how to choose the best fabrics for travel.

A compacttravel umbrella will block a drizzle, and can be stowed in your day bagwhen not in use. Don’t beafraid to pick up a brightly-colored umbrella. Especially if the day is cloudy, it can really brighten up yourphotographs.

However, if you opt to skip the umbrella a light hooded jacket will usually work just fine.Wool blend socks are key to keeping your feet dry.

Rainy Day Outfits: Outdoor Sightseeing in All-day Rain

Choose one of thesetravel rain coats for womenthat fall below your hips. Alternatively, I recommend a durable poncho that keeps your whole body dry, but alsogives you some breathability and flexibility.

Believe it or not, adress and wool-blend tights, and asmall leather bag (which is also waterproof) is any easy to wear outfit in the rain. Your clothing can dry easier, too.

Choose clothing you wear comfortablyunder your poncho or rain jacket.For heavy rain, we recommend a sturdy umbrella (a compact option from home or wait to purchase one abroad if needed).

While you don’t have to pack rain boots for most trips abroad, a pair of waterproof boots like one of these is definitely encouraged. You’ll see that there are many stylish options to choose from!

Now, would be agood time to use your water-proof camera, like a GoPro, to take photographs. Brightly colored lipstickand dangle earrings make a fun way to make you feel flirty, even in the pouring rain and cloudy weather!

    I love all the recommendations provided by Travel Fashion Girl. I bought the Columbia Arcadia lightweight rain jacket and it has proved invaluable! In Alaska in cooler weather, I layered under the jacket, so I was warm but dry too. In warmer climates, the jacket doesn’t make you sweat in the rain. The jacket is great to take on a trip because it is so light and takes up no space in your suitcase. I like that it comes in many colors too!

    I thing that the booties will be great for my Amsterdam trip in March. But one of the many things I have learned her on Travel Fashion Girl is about the packing cubes with the Compass Rose style. To pack with a COO and have my clothes on hangers ready to hang and my other items in the Compass Rose packing cubes allow me to be efficient and organized!

    I’m short so I’m always afraid of poking someone accidentally while using one, so I’ve opted for a waterproof hooded trench coat instead. It worked out perfectly for my trip to Edinburgh-where the coat not only kept me dry from the rain, but added an extra layer of warmth on those windy rainy days (and evenings too)! My husband opted for the foldable rain jacket and although he liked it was compact and easy to stash in his backpack, he did admit he should have went with a waterproof trench coat like mine instead.

      Speaking as a Floridian, it usually rains in the afternoon and it gets very hot and muggy. Best bet are waterproof shoes, with shorts and a top made out of quick-dry or synthetic fabric. I prefer a breathable rain jacket because it rarely rains vertically!

    That North Face poncho is so cute! It’s so hard to find aesthetically pleasing rain coats IMO.

    it’s amazing how waterproof shoes can make all the difference, especially ones that won’t matter if you get them dirty so you can focus on making the most of your experience and not be bothered by your ruined or wet/dirty clothes.

    I’ve just fallen in love with that North Face poncho! I live in Scotland, so I’m used to lugging a waterproof and umbrella with me everywhere I go. Maybe I’ll try and mix things up with a poncho from now on (provided I can find it here in the UK, fingers crossed!)

    I’d never thought about wearing tights on rainy adventures, I’ve always gone with jeans and paid the price by being cold and damp. Really great tip! I’ll definitely keep that in mind for my next rainy day adventure.
