Sticky Situation

30 Jun

By Whitney

Summer months  mean amazing weather like we had yesterday but it also means humid rainy days like we have coming up this week.  I got a request from my  bff Jen for what to wear in these icky days so here are my best recommendations (besides those I recommended a few weeks back).  The last thing you want is to be sticky and gross when the hot rain comes our way.  My favorite fabric in this type of weather is jersey bc that fabric never wrinkles and isn’t clingy.  DVF wrap dresses are  my go-to.  Another key factor here is the color of your outfit.  Let’s just keep it simple and stick with black and navy to avoid any mishaps.  Those patent trench’s might be cute but they only enhance the stickiness on these humid days.  Water repellent fabrics are a must.  When it’s hot, rain boots are an absolute no.  No one wants to trek around NYC with sweaty calves (ew).  Also a must?  A poofy bun.  Hairspray is  your best friend.
