Or it is if you're me - the best I can manage is "appropriate for the weather".

If you manage it, how do you manage it? Is it witchcraft? I bet it's witchcraft hmmenvy

It all depends on how you define stylish grin

Yes I believe it's witchcraft.
My main problems in the rain are my head and feet. The only hairstyle I can have in the rain is a sort of scraped back wet look ponytail or bun, otherwise my hair goes ridiculously frizzy, with random curly bits.
Then I think boots are too hot in the summer so I should wear trainers but I'll then have to change my outfit so I look more 'sporty' as trainers look absurd with a floaty top. I considered getting some 'fun' brightly coloured wellies but I just looked like a twat.

Christ burnishedSilver That reminds me, I must get those chicken fillets out the freezer to defrost for tea.

I washed and blow dried my hair yesterday. By the time I got to work it was ruined.
Also my makeup had slid off because it's so muggy and damp hmm

I think a large, nice umbrella helps - I wear boat shoes for work etc so I'm not fussed if they get wet, and when I'm walking the dog a good pair of boots. It's definitely harder in summer tho.

Burnished, you owe me for a carton of brain bleach shock

It's wet and warm that's the problem isn't it? Wet and cold isn't too bad as long as you've got good boots and a nice coat. Wet and warm is harder - I always end up both sodden and sweaty. Attractive, no?

Me too. My raincoat feels like it's sticking to me on the inside cos I get so hot in it. Urgh! I'd rather it was wet and cold than wet and mild.
