Dressing for a rainy summer day can be tricky. Do you cover up to protect yourself from the rain or do you bare all and give in to the heat? My advice is to go with the temperature. If it's warm, show a little more skin instead of feeling sticky and uncomfortable under pants and a hoodie. If it's a bit cooler, definitely opt for a pair of jeans and a tank top, like this Fashionista. Also consider a light rain coat like this one from BB Dakota. Add your own personal touch, be it with funky sandals or cool jewelry, to personalize your outfit. This Fashionista chose a wrap-around fish bracelet because she has a passion for the sea!
