How do you dress in this weather?

I have gone from boiling in T-shirt and shorts yesterday to still being warm but wearing a coat outside just now. It must be the worst weather in terms of knowing how to dress.

Short shorts and a strappy top yesterday.

Short shorts and a fleece hoodie today.

I'm impressed you can manage a fleece in this humidity grin

It's humid & rainy here. I've just walked to Tesco & having a quick coffee in the cafe before shopping.

Wearing vest top & silky cuffed trousers with trainers & Gap hoody, got an umbrella.
It's too warm in the hoody so I've taken it off!!

It hadn't actually occurred to me that it was humid.

Just checked the weather station and it is showing 27% out and 20% in. I've spent some time in places where it is 85% year round, so nothing really.

@coogee Sorry - thought it was humid everywhere.

Pair of trousers and a long-sleeved t-shirt. It's about 18 or 19 degrees with a light breeze here (NW England), so no problems with clothing!

Ive got long pants and a long sleeved top on, because its bloody freezing in my open plan office with the aircon on but roasting outside...

AdoptedBumpkin Thu 17-Jun-21 15:38:04

@Tehmina23 Those trousers sound cool!

66% humidity here, I'm in a floaty dress and pumps.

Linen trousers and loose, slightly silky t-shirt. Sandals (no socks or tights). When I went out earlier I took a hoodie but didn’t need it. It’s warm and very humid here (London).

Floaty maxi dress

My phone is telling me 70% humidity.
Shorts and vest with trainers. (Same as yesterday but with flip flops!) Cardi slung round waist for school run. No idea why as it’s not going to protect me from the rain 🤣

72% here last I looked. The worst of this weather is you either boil with a coat or risk being drenched.

It's 80% here, very sticky! I live in an old farmhouse with very thick walls so it's nice and cool inside, jeans, a t-shirt and flip-flops have been sufficient.

coogee Thu 17-Jun-21 16:24:18

My phone is telling me 70% humidity.

Mine is saying 72% but it clearly isn't. Just off to the shop, so I've ditched the hoodie.

My trousers were actually £6 from Primark...

I am wearing a dress with trainers, I had been wearing flip flops with a dress at the beginning of the week as my feet were getting hot in the trainers.

TopTabby Thu 17-Jun-21 20:30:40

It's a dress & white trainers for me (but don't tell the sneery other thread running in Style & Beauty) grin

Long flowing summer dress, no knickers and waterproofs. Muddled up or what 😂?

Staying with friend in southwest England for several days with very limited packing space … knee length linen skirt, various toning cotton sleeveless/short sleeve tops. Cardigan and waterproof on hand for sudden changes in the weather.

GreeboIsMySpiritAnimal Fri 18-Jun-21 07:41:24

I wore cuffed linen trousers and a t shirt yesterday, with trainers and a waterproof mac when I went out.

StCharlotte Fri 18-Jun-21 08:36:54

Cropped trousers and a thin top as it's very sticky here this morning (but pissing down). Synthetic - i.e. waterproof - loafers. Change into sandals in the office. Lightweight waterproof jacket.

I really want a Rains jacket but I don't think they go big enough dammit.

Outside work I don't care, but it's what to wear for work in this weather which infuriates me. From September to May I will be in trousers, boots, tights, jumpers etc but once it gets warm that's too hot! Also not allowed open toes where I work because it's an industrial site.
