7 must have fashion items for rainy summer days

Going out in hot, rainy weather is a big challenge on this island.

Do we wear booties on a bike or is it too hot for them? Does anybody really wear an umbrella here? This is why we give you 7 essential items needed for rainy, summer days.

1. LIGHTWEIGHT JACKET
While it is too hot outside to wear a heavy raincoat, you still need something that will keep you dry. A lightweight, water-repellent jacket will definitely do the trick and cover up your arms when rid- ing a bike and waiting in a traffic jam.

2. JELLY SANDALS
If you choose to wear sandals, jelly sandals are your best bet for rainy weather. They won’t get ruined and they will stay on your feet while flip flops are a dangerous choice.

3. LINEN T-SHIRT
A linen t-shirt is the most lightweight top you can wear that will keep you both dry and cool. Linen t-shirts from the men’s section are the best!

4. MOISTURE WICK SHORTS
Moisture-resistant workout shorts are great for rainy, hot days when you do not want to dress up. These shorts will keep you cool and dry due to their moisture transport system.

5. POPOVER SHIRT DRESS
It is too hot for pants in Bali anyways. This is why you should grab a popover shirt dress to have an easy, effortless look that will keep you cool. Also, these simple dresses would pair well with the jelly sandals or snickers.

6. FAUX LEATHER SHOES
Rainy days are the perfect time to wear your faux leather shoes. Faux patent leather ox- fords look amazing on those gloomy morn- ings and are great for a crazy drive through Bali roads.

7. LIGHTWEIGHT SNEAKERS
Lightweight sneakers that will let your feet breathe while keeping them dry are ideal if you still choose to go out for a short run in a hot, rainy weather.■
